Nine-year-old Hoi An resort the only property in Vietnam to earn a spot on Top 100 list.
For the first time The Nam Hai Resort in Hoi An has won a place on Travel + Leisure’s list of “The 100 Best Hotels in the World”, at No. 51.
“This achievement speaks volumes to the kind of team we have here,” said Mr. Anthony Gill, The Nam Hai’s General Manager. “I feel lucky to work with people that are genuinely driven to make the guest experience at The Nam Hai better each day. They are exemplary.”
Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards rankings are based on readers’ ratings for rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food and value.
The Nam Hai was the only Vietnamese property to make the list while also finishing sixth among the “Best Resort Hotels in Asia” and second among the “Best Resort Hotels in Southeast Asia”.
Only 137 Pillars House, a boutique hotel in Chiang Mai, Thailand, finished higher in the “Best Resort Hotels in Southeast Asia” category. The margin was less than half a point (96.00 to 95.63).
More than 200,000 readers of the world’s highest circulating travel magazine determined the World’s Best Awards rankings, which has been the cover story of the August issue since 1996. This year’s edition hits newsstands on Saturday July 16.
Since opening in December 2006 The Nam Hai has set the benchmark by which all other resorts in Vietnam are measured.
The 100-villa property’s first major award came in 2008, when Travel + Leisure’s Design Awards panel dubbed it “World’s Best Resort”. It has also been hailed by Condé Nast Traveler, CNN Travel, Luxury Travel, Cigar Aficionado and many other esteemed overseas media outlets.
