Loved this resort; sorry we only stayed 2 nights during our whistle-stop tour of Vietnam. Lovely, clean room and bathroom, super breakfast, lovely servers, very friendly welcoming reception staff, just a wonderful place to stay in Hoi An. Check your room location: workmen still working on a road to the north side of the resort, noisy from 7am onwards. We were re-located to 222, a little further away from the drills and road hammers. However, not quite far away enough from the enthusiastic rooster who wakes up at 4am! Despite these 2 'hiccups', we still enjoyed our stay. Lovely pool and gardens. The lady who runs the Anh Vu laundry just outside the resort gates does a really good job for very little cash. Sign up at reception for the resort's free daily shuttle bus to An Bang beach, depart 10 am, return 4pm. Or you can take the 4pm free shuttle out and return any time by local taxi, about 760 VND one way. The Anantara is definitely worth returning to.

Room Tip: Before unpacking, check on the surrounding outside noise-makers.Also, check if the river view rooms...

The Anantara's location is unique, a few minutes walk from the delightful centre of Hoi An and on the banks of the river.
Check-in was good and friendly. Our room, a Junior Suite River View, was very nice with all the amenities you could need. We really enjoyed sitting on our balcony watching the boats going up and down the river.
The pool area was lovely and the food served poolside excellent. Breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choice and dishes made fresh to order.
Service was excellent without exception.
We loved the free bikes.
The Anantara would be the only hotel we would consider if returning to Hoi An.

Room Tip: River view rooms are lovely.

We stayed at this hotel for six nights this week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The Hotel is located just 5 mins walk to the old town and has the appeal of quality close by restaurants and tailors.

We had a river view junior suite which was very comfortable cool inside and two comfy lounge areas outside to watch the passing parade of fishing tour boats and people. We found the resort quiet relaxing especially around the pool area. The staff are very attentive and Martin kept a close eye on proceedings plus was a very cordial conversationalist and he mixed freely with all guests which is not often our experience in comparable resorts. This added to the feel and enjoyment of our stay.

The breakfast was of high quality and the location is first rate in the morning.

Overall no complaints much praise!

Only one suggestion ?

I would consider moving the Heritage bar and eating area to the front of the property where the riverside cafe currently is located. It's a great night time spot and would encourage more patronage I believe and the cafe could be relocated to the front entrance?

We will certainly recommend the Anantara Hoi An to any guests wanting an oasis to enjoy the town!

Room Tip: Order a front room junior suite facing the river either on ground or first floor it has the river vi...

Great location on the edge of the Old Town,overlooking the river. Though we were a couple with friends ,it would suit it is the sort of property probably most appropriate for families
Not a fan of buffets but we were too exhausted after 2 days of frenetic activity in Hoi An that we decided to have the curry buffet at the hotel.Very tasty,especially the beef. Not often that you get one of the managers, in this case a friendly German man called Martin ,come to the table to get your feedback and who seemed genuinely interested in your travels.

This hotel is a very good package holiday hotel which knows its market. We were travelling independently but were made very welcome (often this type of hotel appears to look down on independents). Food and rooms were all you could ask for. the real plus is the location on the edge of the Old Town and market. It was so easy to wander round the town and savour the atmosphere of the Town.

Have just come back from a most memorable trip. From the minute we were welcomed by Noel, the General Manager, to the breakfast, the pool, everything was just fantastic. Lovely Tiew looked after the kids at Lantern making and Dung was a great host on our sunset cruise. There were eleven of us ranging from 18 months to 70 and we all found something to do. Perfectly located just up the road from the Hoi An old town it's only a short walk (or bike ride if you're game) to the markets and all the good clothes shops and the restaurants. Would throughly recommend Anantara to anyone. In fact, the quarantine officer that reviewed us back at Sydney airport had been in February and also raved about his experience. If you're going to Hoi An, this is the place to stay.
