Top Six Sexiest Beach Hotels in Hoi An & Da Nang
Hot Hotels By The Sea
The Four Seasons: Nam Hai Hoi An
Sweeping along Vietnam’s most picturesque stretch of beach, the Nam Hai is a private paradise set in tranquil, tropical gardens. It's truly a luxurious escape like no other with reflecting ponds and three swimming pools that cascade to the sand, and a spa with eight private pavilions that floats on a lotus pond. The newly renovated villas – 40 with private pools – are temples of contemporary cool, each centred around a tented sleeping pavilion. The seductive bathrooms with varnished wooden floors and eggshell lacquered sinks and bathtub are out of this world - slide open a door and you'll be met by a private garden abundant in plants, statues and an outdoor monsoon shower. Breakfast and old town transfers are included or you can fill your days onsite with water sports, yoga, tai chi and spa treatments.
Coast Extra - Resort renovations will be completed on 20th December 2016 and will include a new kids club and a sleek pool bar for the grown-ups.

Gourmet Beach Retreat
Beach escape or city break? History and culture or tropical beach and big city nightlife? If decision-making is a problem, head to the Pullman in summer and do the lot.
Teetering on the edge of Da Nang's most up-and-coming hoods' and just a few steps from the coconut palm fringed Bac My An beach, The Pullman is an upscale oasis offering contemporary Vietnamese-inspired design and some of the best dining in the region (our favourite poolside feast, is the Pullman's Azure Beach Lounge which offers a finger-lickin’ good seafood grill, complete with a gorgeous ocean outlook).
Each of the lavish guest rooms boasts a balcony or terrace view of the beach, pool or tropical gardens, taking you from bed to watery bliss in only a few barefoot steps.
Coast Extra - The Pullman offers almost too many activities to mention (including a brilliant kids club), but their culinary courses run by the resort's experienced chefs are an absolute must.

Sunrise Premium Resort Hoi An
The Sunrise is a family friendly beachfront resort that strives to satisfy every wish and whim. Elegant, minimalist rooms have private terraces or balconies, rainfall showers and every other treat and trimming you could hope for – upgrade to a villa, and you’ll even get a private pool. From the spa and gym to the infinity pool and kids club, there are plenty of activities to keep you occupied. Should all that sun, sea and luxury get too much, there's a free shuttle to the old town and tours-a-plenty. At the end of the day, slink back to base for happy hour cocktails at the poolside Coconut Bar.
Coast Extra – The best booking deals to be had can be found here. Alongside this, onsite dining is diverse and of an exception standard, making the discounted full-board and occasional all-inclusive options offered great value.
NB: The resorts beach has been effected by erosion, but it makes up for this with pools a plenty and during summer months, shared use of a small beach cove accessible directly from the resort.

Equally suited to families, couples looking for a romantic break and groups of friends who want to kick back and chill out, this ultra-stylish retreat manages what most resorts struggle to do - multitask! Maybe it's because of the Hyatts sheer size (the biggest complaint is that guests sometimes get lost in it's manicured grounds) or the smiley, efficient staff who take care of every detail, leaving you to enjoy lazy mornings in the spa, a snooze by the pool or pick from the daily list of activities - horse riding on the beach anyone?
Rooms, apartments and villas are scattered around the grounds, some beachside, some pool - but all offering breathtaking views. As you'd expect from the Hyatt even the lowest category room is both opulent and spacious, featuring oak furnishings, sumptuous beds and contemporary bathrooms with a muted earth palette and made in Vietnam accessories (in case you forget where you are). Outside the resort you are just a 15-minute complimentary transfer from the city (Da Nang) or Hoi An, and within seconds of two world class golf courses - Montgomerie Lings and Da Nang Golf Course.
Coast Extra - The nearest restaurants and bars are a short taxi ride from the resort, although that is set to change with recent (and near completion) openings at nearby Coco bay - the Holy Pig is a must visit.

Premier Village Da Nang
Each of the 111 pool villas at Premier Village feature spacious en-suite bedrooms, dining and living areas and a fully equipped kitchenette - perfect for small groups and families in search of a well priced holiday pad on a white sandy beach, a stone throw from Da Nang City. The villas are beautiful and the pool gardens private, so much so that it is too easy to hole yourself up and miss out on the resort's two outdoor swimming pools, spa, fitness centre, and fabulous restaurants (the incredible seafood, sashimi and sushi at Ca Chuon took us two visits to discover).
Another annoyance for those with big self-catering ideas, is the resorts close proximity to some of the best local seafood joints, great restaurants and bars on the eastside (beach-side) of Da Nang City.
Coast Extra - Book direct and you'll get a free return airport transfer - and don't expect to cook!

The Naman has it all. There are those beckoning beds and baths so big they take an hour or so (hey, you’re in no rush) to fill, and the thoughtful, generous extras: free daily massages, happy hour canapes and the services of your oncall personal guest ambassador. Then there’s the easy skip from bedroom to beach to unwind with the East Vietnam Sea lapping at your feet. We also love the local area, which is sure to keep you entertained. Trips to the nearby Marble Mountains, golf courses and Hoi An are obligatory and the beaches are eye-bogglingly beautiful. The best way to enjoy this hotel though, is by doing very little at all. Simply wander from one bamboo framed path to another and take in every corner of the retreat.
Coast Extra – Great deals can often be found on Secret Escapes these include multiple destinations - Ha Long Bay, Siem Reap, Saigon as well as several nights at the luxurious Naman.
