UPDATE: Since our stay The Nam Hai has new owners and is now operated by luxury brand, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, we are sure that as ‘Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai’ this luxury resort will reach even higher levels of service and facilities, we’ve amended the website links and contact details below.
Everything about The Nam Hai oozes style and luxury; no opportunity to offer their guests a little slice of luxury has been overlooked. This multi-award winning resort has been impressing critics and guests alike since 2006 and continues to offer one of the finest 5 star hotel experiences in the world.
But what would we think of The Nam Hai experience as vegan guests?
We approached the lobby from a long and secluded driveway, driving past the well equipped, state of the art fitness centre, a ‘teen club’ for younger guests and outdoor tennis, badminton and basketball courts. When we reached the check-in desk we began to fully appreciate the beautiful style of the resort with sweeping views over 3 infinity pools down to the ocean and beachfront. It was seriously impressive.
The Nam Hai has 100 villas from one to five bedroom, that are set among 35 acres of well manicured gardens containing swaying coconut palms, giant earthenware pots, sweet perfumed jasmine bushes and beautiful tropical flowers. Our one bedroom villa was a great place to rest and unwind, with a garden area outside that had two large and comfortable day beds, positioned perfectly to allow hours of blissful relaxation whilst admiring the view of the East Sea and the nearby Cham Islands.
The villa had all of the facilities and amenities we’d expect of a resort of this high standard plus some little extras including a coffee machine, a mini-bar stocked with premium products as well as complementary soft drinks, (vegan) beer and water.
There was an iPod pre-loaded with a wide range of music for all tastes, hooked up to a good quality sound system and a flatscreen TV with international channels. The Wifi was strong and stable here and throughout the resort. Small additional touches like a ladies fan and stylish slippers that brought a smile to our faces.
The service was exceptional from check-in to check-out. A warm, friendly welcome before our details were efficiently taken, and the necessary information about hotel facilities was passed over to us. We especially liked that we were asked whether we had any dietary requirements at check-in so were able to explain about being vegan to the guest relations staff who made sure the relevant people knew.
