It’s not often you can enjoy a wellness retreat within a busy tourist town, but the Almanity achieves this feat with ease. Despite being only a short stroll from the historic Old Town of Hoi An, the resort feels a million miles away from the busy streets and bustling markets.
Your well-being is the staff’s utmost prioity – so be sure to keep them happy and enjoy the many healthy breakfast options, tai chi and yoga classes, and one of the largest spas in the whole of Vietnam. A daily massage is included for all guests, perfect after hours on your feet, exploring the photo-worthy thoroughfares and alleyways of the UNESCO listed town centre.
The ecofriendly, saltwater swimming pool is vast and hugely inviting whatever the weather, encircled by a range of bedroom options to suit couples and families alike. Some rooms are compact and perfect for those who simply want a place to sleep, but multi-room suites with balconies and luxurious bathtubs are available for people looking for a more comfortable pied-a-terre on longer stays.
The Almanity also employs a ‘Seven Colored Well-Being Days’ system, where each day of the week is represented by a colour and an associated concept – such as courage, joy and kindness. Everything from the spa treatments to your welcome drink at check-in will be influenced by this, and guests are encouraged to live these values, helping to maintain a good emotional and spiritual balance.
Even if all of your chakras were aligned before arrival, it never hurts to begin each day with a little fresh positivity. And with such a welcoming hotel to come back to each evening, that’s really not too difficult at all.
