In the heart of Vietnam’s ancient town of Hoi An, where lanterns sway and the Thu Bon River runs, there lies a sanctuary of serenity and charm—the La Siesta Hoi An Resort & Spa.

Nestled amidst the rice paddies and next to the old town. This is not just a resort; it’s a time capsule that captures the essence of Hoi An’s enchanting history, wrapped in the comfort of modern luxury.

There was a modest hotel, known to many as the Essence Hoi An. As the years passed, a vision blossomed and fuelled by a desire to exceed expectations, the owners seized an opportunity to develop the land behind the hotel. Collaborating with inspiring designers and planners, they transformed the property into the La Siesta Resort & Spa, a name that now whispers luxury in the ears of travellers from across the seas.

Step through the gates and you’ll be greeted by a symphony of colours—a fusion of the old-world yellow of Hoi An and the lush greens of tropical flora. The suites are a homage to heritage, with hardwood floors that echo footsteps of the past and a décor that’s a nod to the town’s storied legacy. Each room, a cocoon of comfort, invites you to a world where time slows down, and luxury takes the front seat. The east wing now features striking period-style suites, a fine-dining venue opening onto a sparkling blue saltwater pool—the first in the Hoi An old town area.

Stepping into one of the east wing suites is like stepping into Hoi An’s history combined with modern touches. The hallways are painted in vibrant traditional yellow, representing prosperity and Hoi An’s signature hue. Photos of the town’s heritage adorn the airy hallways, and twinkling candelabra enhance the feeling of stepping back in time.

Room styles include the Junior Suite, Veranda Suite (with a pool view), Premium Terrace Suite, Junior Suite Villa (with a pool view), Duplex Suite, and Duplex Villa Suite. Each room features a roomy king-size bed, varnished hardwood floors, and forest green, cream, and deep brown wood accents.

Dive into the saltwater pool, where the water is as clear as the skies above Hoi An. Or float in the infinity pool, where the horizon kisses the water’s edge.  Visit the spa ancient healing meets modern pampering.  Feast like royalty in The Temple Restaurant & Lounge on a culinary journey that spans continents, all within the view of the tranquil pool or  wander through an art gallery that’s a canvas of creativity, showcasing the vibrant culture of Vietnam.

Whether you seek relaxation, cultural experiences, or culinary delights, La Siesta Hoi An Resort & Spa promises an unforgettable stay. Welcome to a new dimension of luxury and personalized service!
