Hello from Anantara Hoi An

There are so many factors to consider when planning out a vacation, but the most important of all is where to stay. Anantara Hoi An is a luxury resort located in the heart of Hoi An set along the Thu Bon river. So what exactly can you do here?


Hoi An city is as magical as it looks like in pictures. The city lit up at night with glowing lanterns in all shape and colours. An extraordinary place we would love to be back and experience more of.


Let’s see.. you can..

Treat a girl like a lady, and she will never forget how you made her feel.

Sitting under the lantern lights at Hoi An Riverside Restaurant surrounded by your loved ones is truly an indescribable feeling. There was one particular event that happened during our family dinner that I would like to share. I sat next to my ten year old sister while she got presented her own children menu. She was at all times paid attention to in a respectful manner and referred to as “Miss”. While most children would get ignored, this kind of treatment was unexpected but very appreciated. A very sweet gesture to treat her like the lady she is. After ordering pasta bolognese and a banana split dessert, our sister couldn’t help but blurt out: “I’m in Paradise” to our amusement. A moment we will forever cherish.


Anantara To The Rescue

It is no joke that traveling in a group of eight can be a hassle. In between city travels, Tsutsumi managed to leave behind a backpack filled with camera equipments and laptop in a city two hours away. Can you believe it? To our appreciation, Anantara made sure to make the necessary arrangements to get the backpack returned as the attentive and caring team that they are. We also managed to surprise and celebrate our father’s 54th birthday with a big chocolate cake, personalised writing and birthday candles. Such an impeccable service, I have no words.


I always like to think that the hotel staff is a direct reflection of the destination. If they are proud of their home and workplace they can’t help but glow from within when approached. Anantara Hoi An was the first place I felt that culture appreciation. It also felt like the team was content and enjoyed working at the resort. There was nothing but smiles and sweet gestures seeing them interact with the small children. Everything and everyone was so comfortable it made us feel like home.


The perfect holiday destination 


Anantara Hoi An resort went above and beyond to make our experience as guests of the resort enjoyable. It was so special for our family from start to end, and has become an everlasting memory. We look forward to be back and book another stay at our home away from home.
