The Nam Hai, Hoi An
The pristine sweep of Ha My beach would be reason enough to check-in to The Nam Hai. But the resort also boasts a prime position just outside Hoi An, with its lantern-lit streets and atmospheric merchants' houses, making it one of the most sought-after spots on the central coast. The resort itself isn't bad either. There are 100 villas, arranged in crescents around the bay. Most have a pool, but the communal one is a beauty too: flowing down over three tiers to the sea.
