Elements of nature

The design of Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa focuses on earth tones and natural sunlight.

Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa was honoured to receive a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellent in May for its hospitality excellence. Only the top-performing ten per cent of businesses listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award. “Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa is pleased to receive the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence,” said Mr Zulki Othman, General Manager of Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa. “We strive to offer our guests a memorable experience and this accolade is evidence that our hard work is translating into positive reviews on TripAdvisor.”

Opened in late 2011, Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa is situated on an immaculate stretch of white sandy beach with a view of the ocean and the magnificent Marble Mountains. Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa offers a contemporary design accented by Vietnamese-style architectural elements. It comprises 193 hotel rooms and suites, 95 one-, two- and-three bedroom condominiums and 27 three-bedroom villas, each with a private pool. The hotel’s guestrooms feature contemporary, earth-toned interiors bathed in crisp, natural sunlight. Indigenous timbers, ceramic tea settings and Oriental art create an unmistakably Asian ambiance amid modern amenities, while floor-to-ceiling panels usher light in over a comfortable king-size bed topped with feathery pillows. A separate rain shower, bathtub,  spacious walk-in wardrobe and a chaise lounge are additional luxuries.

Ensconced within their own private enclosure, the palatial 307 sq m Ocean Villas are the resort’s premium accommodation, where guests have exclusive beachfront access from their outdoor sundeck. Built into a tropical landscaped garden, the shore-facing terrace features a luxurious and sizable vanishing edge pool. Suitable for families or a group of friends, the three-bedroom villas comprise two rooms with king-size beds and one with two double beds.

The hotel also has restaurants serving Vietnamese, Italian, and international cuisine. The Beach House, the hotel’s signature restaurant, is located on the beach with uninterrupted views over the sea to the Son Tra Peninsula. It offers authentic Vietnamese seafood and Western grill items, complemented by a bar and a private dining room.

The Green House, meanwhile, is an all-day dining restaurant with an open kitchen concept offering Vietnamese comfort dishes and a taste of the Mediterranean. The wood furnishings bring a warm texture coupled with stone from the iconic Marble Mountains. The dining room spills out on to the terrace, where guests can sit in a Vietnamese-style basket boat while enjoying the view. Other food and beverage options include Terrasse - the lobby lounge with indoor and outdoor seating, and the Pool House, which is adjacent to the main resort pool and serves lunch and cocktails in the evening. 

In late 2011, Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa unveiled  VIE Spa to offer its guests a truly Vietnamese spa experience. At VIE Spa guests are immersed in the holistic healings of Vietnamese culture that have been practiced and perfected over thousands of years. Each Hyatt spa is custom designed to embrace the local environment and culture by providing an authentic indigenous experience. VIE Spa is cradled between the mountains and the sea, harnessing the elements that help guest to relax and renew.
The VIE Spa journey begins as soon as you step into the grand entrance courtyard, with gentle sounds of water from the VIE fountain of life, leading to the spa lounge flanked by elegant white marble day beds on either side. Stepping over textured slate slabs and tranquil pools of water, the VIE Spa journey leads to your private treatment suite where beauty of form merges with elements of nature to offer a true spa experience in commune with nature.

Each spa suite is designed with an outdoor serenity courtyard featuring a granite stone soaking tub, a relaxation day bed, and an emerald green glass tiled pool and bamboo garden along with indoor treatment facilities offering a private vanity area, a steam shower and a luxurious treatment bed for spa therapies. All spa suites feature sliding doors that seamlessly merge the inside and outside, allowing guests to soak in the calming aura of the lush landscaped bamboo garden with pebble stones and gentle cascading water features.  
Other resort facilities include a fitness centre, swimming pools, tennis courts, badminton courts and Camp Hyatt, offering a wide range of activities for children and younger guests.
