Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa Review

Are you looking for accommodation around Hoi An Beach in Vietnam?

One of the most popular resorts is the Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa with its own private beach, luxury accommodation and many water sports to enjoy. The Victoria Hoi An Hotel is a member of one of the largest Vietnamese Travel Groups in Vietnam – the TMG Hospitality Group.

We left our reservations too late for the Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa and could not book any accommodation. We were intrigued to see what we were missing out on so we ventured out to the Hoi An Resort ourselves and enjoyed a site inspection of the hotel rooms, suites, spa, restaurants, swimming pool and private beach and water sports.

The Victoria Hoi An Resort & Spa hosted us for a Saturday Night Seafood Buffet and a sidecar tour to Monkey Mountain with a gourmet picnic as part of their sidecar tours programme. Our opinions as always are our own.

First Impressions of the Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa

Reception at Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort

Reception

Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa beautifully incorporates in its design Japanese, French, and Vietnamese elements and the architects have drawn inspiration from the UNESCO World Heritage Ancient Town of Hoi An. From the minute you walk up the steps to the entrance of the Victoria Hoi An Hotel you know that you have arrived somewhere special, you will be presented with a view of the seemingly infinite pool with ongoing uninterrupted views of the sea and islands surrounding. Either side of the entrance lies the accommodation which is made up of rooms overlooking the river, the gardens and villas that are ocean-facing. You feel as if you are walking through Hoi An’s Ancient Town. The terracotta buildings and walkways painted in the yellow hues of Hoi An Town and the traditional Vietnamese Lanterns take you back in time.  Colourful bougainvillaea in terracotta pots line the walkways.

The Hoi An  Resort reception staff are quick to welcome you with their lovely Vietnamese smiles. The Reception area has a feel as if you have walked into a Colonial Mansion, so much character, comfortable lounges making you instantly feel at home and you feel that you don’t want to ever leave. Just look at the view of the swimming pool, it does not get any better than this!

We were invited by Victoria Hoi An Resort to enjoy their special seafood buffet with local traditional dancing on the following Saturday night after the sidecar tours.

As the evening showed little signs of rain tables were set out around the pool.  The seafood buffet exceeded our expectations, with so many options for local fresh seafood available. Just to whet your appetite if you are a seafood lover:

The evening performance from the Vietnamese traditional dancers was mesmerising.  Each dance represented daily Vietnamese life, the music was catchy and the dancers were colourfully dressed in traditional dress. A perfect end to the evening’s dinner.

    wow! That resort looks stunning! I went to Vietnam this April but unfortunately I only stayed in the north so I didn’t get a chance to visit Hoi An! But if I get to travel there one day I will definitely stay that that resort! That pool is everything! So modern, stylish and beautiful ! That food looks so delicious as well!

    • Hi Ada
      Thanks for your comments. Glad you managed to get to Vietnam this year it is a beautiful country. We hope that you make it to Hoi An soon as well.
      Cheers Jane and Duncan

  • When we plan a trip to Hanoi, I would definitely take a closer look at the Victoria Hoi An Resort. I will definitely look at booking early so we can get in. Good to know there are only 109 rooms. I might be tempted to spend my entire visit at that pool overlooking the sea. But there are a lot of tours available from the resort. A seafood feast with traditional dancing would be fun evening entertainment.

  • Ahhh Hoi An is one of my favorite places in the entire world! We stayed in the city center and made it to the beach a couple times, but I would love to stay at a beach resort. It looks and sounds amazing!!!

    • Hi Chloe
      Thanks for your comments. Hoi An is a special destination – an ancient city and beach so close to one another. It is one of Vietnam’s most beautiful places to visit.
      Cheers Jane and Duncan

  • Indrani says:

    Looks so luxurious and comfortable. The furnishings and decor look so good.
    The spa looks so good, I wouldn’t want to move out. Seafood fest would the next in my list to experience. Great knowing about the hotel.

  • Mike says:

    That place looks super swanky!!! Nice. I see they offer a shuttle to town, but wondering if they also offer bikes so you could go explore the rice paddies, or get a little exercise on your way to town. We always love bikes to get around!

  • Anda says:

    If we ever make it to Vietnam, I’d love to stay at Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa. Looks like my kind of place: luxury accommodations and a private beach. Having a spa and restaurant on the premises makes it even more appealing. It seems you have been spoiled there.

  • Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort and Spa is like a world in its own. All that food looks so yummy, and i would have loved to jump into the pool and get a massage every now and then 😎. Its a delight to see that the front desk has such a wide array of tours on offer, making sure that theres plenty of options to keep the guests busy and occupied during their stay.

    • Hi
      Thanks for your comments. The Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort is the perfect place to stay when visiting Hoi An, hope you can visit one day.
      Cheers Jane and Duncan

  • Thank you for sharing all those details about Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa. When I plan my trip to Vietnam, I’ll check the price and availability of this luxury hotel for sure. I like the pool and the location mainly. It seems that the hotel is not big, so it might be not available. However, if I manage to get there, I’ll for sure want to try kayaks and sailboat. And the cuisine looks fantastic!

    • Hi
      Thanks for your comments. The cuisine is excellent and you will love the water sports that are available. Hope you get to visit.
      Cheers Jane and Duncan

  • Clarice says:

    OMG! This is paradise and this is exactly what I need right now. We’re planning to visit Vietnam next year and this is just perfect. I can imagine myself relaxing by the pool area. Thank you for sharing this detailed review. Will keep this in mind once we start booking for our trip.
