For first-time travelers to Hoi An, staying close to the Ancient Town has its perks: you are steps away from some of Hoi An’s best street eats, gorgeous historic buildings are just a few doors down, and the walk home at night is lit with shimmering silk lanterns. Not to mention the frequent trips to the Ancient Town you’d want to make, because clearly going once was never going to be enough. But then again, staying at these indulgent resorts is a treat in itself. Check out our favorite resorts around Hoi An Ancient Town below.


Anantara is a mere five-minute walk from the Ancient Town. With an open-air reception and riverfront rooms surrounded by a lush garden, the resort is that perfect balance between the nature and culture Hoi An has to offer. No matter how many times you stay here, waking up to wooden boats gliding past your window never loses its magic. Enjoy a delicious dinner on a terrace by the Thu Bon River, or at Art Space Restaurant among carefully curated local artworks.

TIP: At Anantara Art Space, 7% of the profit from art sales go to the Kianh Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping children with disabilities in Quang Nam, so you can bring home a piece of local art for a great cause.

La Siesta

Beyond the tasteful Indochine lobby of La Siesta, a tropical paradise takes you to a different world away from the busy streets of Hoi An. Stroll along shaded pathways that lead to four different swimming pools among false bird of paradise and palm trees. Take in the vast rice fields of Hoi An from your room’s balcony. A pampering treatment at La Spa or a yoga session in the garden is the perfect end after a day of discovering the Ancient Town.

Silk Sense River

Situated on the De Vong’s verdant river bank, Silk Sense Hoi An River Resort knows how important it is to protect the blessed environment it is in. Silk Sense has its own organic vegetable garden to supply Areca Restaurant, offers guests eco-friendly toiletries and personal care products, and has eliminated single-use plastic on its ground. The resort is a pleasant 10-minute bicycle ride from the Ancient Town with picturesque sceneries along the way.

Bay Resort

Over the historic Cam Nam Bridge from the Ancient Town is a dreamy getaway called Bay Resort. Delicate vines drape over yellow painted hallways, and wooden jalousie windows look out to Hoi An Market across the river. Bay Resort is also home to one of the most beautiful swimming pools in Hoi An with a stunning sunset view. Start your day with a cup of creamy salt coffee at the Olive Tree Restaurant before heading out to explore the town.

TIP: At Bay Resort, the mini bar is on the house and replenished daily. Treat yourself to some late night drinks and snacks in bed or out on the balcony, where you can see hundreds of lanterns light up the Thu Bon River.


From the wooden interior, bamboo decorations, to the red tiled roof–it’s easy to see where Almanity’s inspiration came from (it’s the Ancient Town itself). The five-star resort tends to the smallest details when it comes to guests’ wellness, including a chlorine-free swimming pool and locally sourced ingredients for restaurants. My Chi Spa at Almanity is one of the largest spas in Central Vietnam, which also offers week-long retreats alongside yoga and tai chi classes.


Hidden away in an alley in Cam Thanh, Moodhoian is a secluded boutique resort perfect for a quiet yet accessible stay. Dip your toes in the riverside pool for a refreshing morning swim, or join a meditation or aromatherapy workshop to reconnect with your body and mind. At Moodhoian, it’s all about taking it slow and easy. Don’t miss the rooftop afternoon tea where you can sip on herbal brews while appreciating Hoi An’s serene countryside.
