Westin Hotel’s & Resorts, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s extraordinary portfolio of over 30 hotel brands, have announced the opening of  The Westin Resort & Spa Cam Ranh, marking the brand’s entry into Vietnam.

Nestled along a long sandy beach on Vietnam’s south-central coast, this 207-key resort will offer a choice of spacious guest rooms, suites and pool villas, locally sourced cuisine and an extensive collection of well-being experiences designed to empower guests to be the best version of themselves.

The Westin Resort & Spa Cam Ranh is a haven of wellness and activity where guests will have endless opportunities to recharge, revive and reconnect,” said Jakob Helgen, Area Vice President – Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia & Myanmar, Marriott International. “With its signature programming, the new hotel will bring to life the Westin brand promise that delivers a holistic wellness experience for travellers and locals alike. As the inaugural Westin branded resort in Vietnam, this also represents our continued commitment to meeting the needs of all travellers in this captivating country.”

Designed by Andy Fisher Workshop, the resort is seamlessly integrated with its coastal setting of sand dunes, with a focus on natural materials such as stone and green roofs that create a connection with the landscape. An original, locally made brick screen pays homage to the historic brick making industry, while some other interior elements are inspired by the area’s local lobster farms and fishing villages. A selection of private pool villas provides a tropical ‘home-away-from-home’ experience just a few steps from the beach.

Situated along the serene Cam Ranh Long Beach, The Westin Cam Ranh Resort & Spa offers a rejuvenating retreat with captivating ocean and mountain vistas. The new hotel is conveniently located, with Cam Ranh International Airport just a 10-minute drive away, and the centre of Nha Trang city accessible within a 45-minute drive, providing easy connectivity to other regional and international destinations.

Sleep Well

Guests at The Westin Cam Ranh Resort & Spa can rest and refresh in a choice of 205 spacious guest rooms, suites and breath taking one, two or three-bedroom standalone pool villas, all of which are thoughtfully appointed with amenities that underscore Westin’s holistic approach to well-being. Each of the rooms feature the brand’s newly launched next generation Heavenly® Bed, contemporary interiors, state-of-the-art technology, working spaces, and a soft, calming colour palette. A balcony or terrace frames views of the lush gardens or shimmering sea.

Eat Well

The resort will showcase a variety of culinary options including The Verandah, the bright and inviting all-day dining restaurant featuring a curated Eat Well menu and an open-kitchen, and Hang Ten Beach Bar & Grill, which focuses on modern Vietnamese cuisine with fresh local seafood. Haven Lounge is a sophisticated venue offering coffee and “grab and go” bites, and Plunge Bar will allow guests to enjoy the tropical sunshine with poolside refreshments.

Move Well

Guests can elevate their fitness routines at the 24/7 WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio, the yoga studio, or at the tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, while adventure lovers experience the thrill of the ocean with kayaking and paddleboarding, and three outdoor pools, including a kids’ pool, ensure everyone is left feeling refreshed. As part of Westin’s Move Well pillar, guests can use the digital activity tracking app, Strava, to follow curated WestinWORKOUT routes around the resort. The RunWESTIN Concierge at the resort will also lead energizing and social morning jogs that guests can participate in. Available in-room, on-demand, the WestinWORKOUT® Gear Lending program will allow guests to borrow the latest high-tech recovery and total body strength training equipment to optimize their fitness.

Feel Well

With its immersive sensory welcome experience, Heavenly Spa by Westin™ is an oasis of tranquillity which stimulates the seven senses – five physical and two psychological – across a menu of soothing and invigorating therapies. The spa and salon will offer wellness treatments such as rejuvenating body scrubs, couples’ massages, Vietnamese technique massages, manicures, pedicures and more, and each guest room will feature a Heavenly® Bath experience for complete rejuvenation.

Work Well

Corporate guests can stay productive in modern meeting spaces suitable for every size and style of event. The Grand Ballroom can host many of life’s most important occasions, from corporate conferences to one-of-a-kind weddings, and the two flexible meeting rooms and an intimate boardroom inspire creativity and collaboration, all supported by the Westin Meetings concept.

Play Well

The Westin Cam Ranh’s Family programs are designed to ignite wonder and spark curiosity in young guests. Upon check-in, the little guests receive a Westin Family Travel Journal as well as a Westin Family Activities Calendar filled with engaging, nature-inspired activities to encourage interaction with their surroundings.

“With its natural, contemporary design and pristine seaside setting, The Westin Resort & Spa Cam Ranh is the perfect beachfront hideaway, nestled amid the sand dunes just steps from the ocean,” said Jamie Jung Hun Lee, General Manager of The Westin Resort & Spa Cam Ranh. “While this charming coastal region of Vietnam feels blissfully secluded, the resort is just 5km from Cam Ranh International Airport which makes it easily accessible, creating a compelling option for wellness breaks, family vacations and corporate escapes.
