“breath taking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I am an architect, and this hotel is breathtaking.
The service and quality of food in both restaurants is excellent.
There are three pools, two of them child free, so great for lengths.
Typical GHM attention to detail.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view

After a long stretch working in sunless Beijing, my friend & I came here to relax and soak in the sun during the week of Chinese New Year (Feb 9-17, 2013). We simply wanted peace & quiet, and to take long walks along the beach. Nam Hai was perfect for this. Our room fronted the beach (it was worth springing for the extra cost). At night we had early cocktails in the lovely bar area above the main restaurant (btw they make fine Grey Goose Martinis, up, olive). Then a nice dinner at one of the two restaurants. Couldn't be easier or more relaxing. A lovely woman playing jazz standards on the baby grand. Wish we could have stayed longer! If we're back in Viet Nam, we'll be back to Nam Hai.

Room Tip: spring for the nicest room you can afford

The rooms were very spacious and unique. Very peaceful beach resort. Wonderful pool areas. Restaurants were wonderful and the service at the resort left nothing to the imagination or wanting. Will definitely return when we visit Southeast Asia again.

Room Tip: Rooms near the beach have a better ocean view, but all rooms have some view of the water.

What's great: rooms are modern and beautifully designed (we had beach villa with pool), grounds are lovely and extremely well maintained with great gym/pools/tennis, great group morning yoga/meditation (every hotel should have this!), all the staff is wonderful, good demographic with no screaming kids running around.

Not great: room rates are WAY overpriced, restaurants are also incredibly overpriced we ate in town for 1/10 the price and 2x better food, no music on the grounds (need some cool chill out music at least), spa was crazy priced and no access to local massage on the beach. For these reasons especially the price I am not sure we would return...

We appreciate your feedback about your recent stay at The Nam Hai and are pleased to read that you were able to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday and felt our villas to be well maintained and our staff friendly and engaging.

We admit the prices in our restaurants and in our spa are higher compared to locally owned restaurants or spas for a number of reasons may it be the use of imported high quality ingredients/products, very high standards of hygiene, thoroughly trained English speaking staff, superior furnishings, to mention but a few examples.

Once again, thank you very much for your visit and it would be our pleasure to welcome you back on a future occasion. Walter Hess, Resident Manager

Totally enjoyed my vacation with my hubby at this villa. Expensive but worth every cent. Service out of this world even language is a problem in most part of Vietnam.

Awesome breakfast with freshly made jam, good range of bread, yoghurt of all sorts. Excellent vietnamese pho, crepes, fruits n selection from menu. Not merely a buffet but a really extensive and satisfying breakfast.

Every staff, from pool attendant to concierge were all out to serve and obviously working with each other. we requested massage at the poolside n the pool attendant took care of that. The massage was so good that i decided to add a neck massage to my foot massage and they saw to it n got it all arranged without a hitch.

Am suitably impressed by the hands on management team, on the floor every day, working very hard, very visible, very genuine. Have stayed at villas in many places but this beats it all. Well done!

We had the best family vacation EVER at the Nam Hai this past week, and we so enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, fantastic facilities, lovely staff, and fabulous restaurants, that we just stayed at the resort and relaxed the entire time! Our experience at the Nam Hai couldn't have been more perfect!

Many thanks to Mr. Hess, Mr. Christian, Ms. Nhu, and Mr. Tin for making our stay so special! We would love to return next year! Thank you again!

We will go back here, just to stay here... for a month... easily one of the best hotels and hotel rooms we have ever visited. The food (we stayed here three days) for breakfast, lunch and dinner was outstanding. German Chef has oriented the menu to western travellers... great steaks for example... the only weakness seems to be a slower kitchen than we would have liked, although we usually were eating in large groups. Deserts to die for, and on a cycling vacation, one is allowed to eat dessert(s)!
The pools are spectacular, service at poolside is excellent and quick. All drinks are available, there is a tendancy to order things like SIngapore Slings because of the ambiance being soooo spectacular. There are hundreds of huge clay pots, beautiful trees, orchids and so on.
The outdoor showers in every chalet are enough to have one built in our place back here in Mexico... have to experience this place... The spa and the health club are great. There is a guy here from Tibet who runs free 7AM Yoga and 8AM meditation classes... really worth getting up for...

Room Tip: Try for a '00' chalet, they are out on the beach with better views.

Along a seemingly infinite stretch of sand, amidst Vietnam’s richest cultural heritage, a strand of sophisticated, visually striking villas lines the dramatic beachfront. Inspired by 2,500 years of history, The Nam Hai’s architecture and interior design presents a dramatic play on wind and water inspired by ancient feng shui philosophy and the grandeur of the Tu Doc royal tombs of Hue.
