Almanity is a contemporary, light and airy resort and the perfect option for those who would prefer being in the town of Hoi An rather than on the beach. The center of this historic town is just a walk or a short taxi ride away, making it a very convenient option.
The resort brilliantly combines a classic heritage feel with contemporary design, it has brilliantly blended the natural surroundings into its architecture. There are four different room types here - My Mind, My Energy, My Spirit and My Heart. Each room has a slightly different concept, size and style. We feel that My Heart is best for honeymooners, but otherwise we would recommend My Energy for a good size room complete with balcony.
One of the major highlights of the resort is the cool glassy pool that sits at the center of the resort, ideal for a cool dip after exploring captivating temples and historical buildings found in Hoi An.
The hotel operates on an all-inclusive spa basis and resort guests can enjoy daily 90-minutes worth of spa treatments that include massages, meditations and Tai Chi. There are an incredible 40 treatment rooms!
There is an atmospheric bar here called Blue Bottle Bar Cafe, that serves a range of colorful cocktails. Four Plates restaurant is where you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here you can enjoy Japanese, Italian of course tantalising Vietnamese cuisine - there are lots of healthy options available too, in-keeping with its wellness concept.
UNESCO protected, Hoi An has retained much of its charm with yellow hued buildings and small winding streets that can easily be explored on foot. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and boutiques that you can easily get to fro Almanity.
There are four different room concepts at Almanity divided between My Mind, My Energy, My Spirit and my. My Mind is simple but comfortable and comes with a small balcony. My Energy is a slightly bigger room and also boasts a balcony. My Spirit has a duplex setup with the bedroom upstairs on a mezzanine floor - not really suited for children or the elderly. My Heart is the biggest room with a large Jacuzzi tub on the balcony, we feel this is a great option for honeymooners.
Children are more than welcome to come and stay at Almanity, and there is a kids club available.
Almanity has a beautiful terraced pool at the center of the property with fun, staggered seating areas which makes it more interesting. There is an enormous spa where your treatments are included as part of your stay. The Blue Bottle Bar Cafe is a great way to start or end your evening with its blue environment - enjoy a signature cocktail with perhaps a tapas dish or two. Four Plates Restaurant is their main restaurant with a low key atmosphere which make it an easy and amicable place to dine at.
Hoi An and beyond opens up a plethora of activities for you to enjoy during your time here. The town is best explore on foot or by bicycle - take in the beautiful French colonial buildings, sited such as the Japanese Bridge and Chinese Temple. Wander around the local market down by the river, browse the boutiques, treat yourself to some new clothes from one of the tailors or perhaps a good value massage! Further afield, you could head to the beach or perhaps the My Son Temples. Take a boat trip on the river, challenge yourself to a cooking class - lots of things to do!
