‘Don’t forget the spa’ is a mantra that makes all the more sense in Hoi An. After hours on your feet, long flights and tiring car rides, or days of constant movement, a spa treatment can work wonders for releasing pain, relieving stress, and restoring vitality. Hoi An is blessed with countless spas and natural ingredients that support wellbeing. Here are five of our favorite spas in Hoi An for when you are really ready to relax.

Heart of the Earth Spa

The Nam Hai Four Seasons Resort takes a unique approach to wellness, with an emphasis on connection and the compassionate teachings of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. The resort’s award-winning spa is set on a serene lotus pond, and uses sound healing with crystal singing bowls as part of every treatment. Discover new depths of rejuvenation in ‘Nam Hai Earth Song’, the spa’s 150-minute signature treatment.

Anantara Spa

Anantara Resort is loved by many travelers for good reason. The spa here is set right on the banks of the Thu Bon River, and offers four treatment rooms with sunken stone tubs. This is the perfect place to come when you want a highly personalized and thoughtful experience, or traditional Thai massage. Treatments feature local ingredients, such as sea salt and green tea scrubs, and Vietnamese herbal baths.

Victoria Spa

When it opened, the spa at Victoria Beach Resort in Cua Dai was the first spa in Hoi An. Today, the spa’s dedicated and well trained therapists maintain a tradition of excellence and care throughout each ritual. The spa is set in a quiet corner of the resort’s palm-shaded gardens. Start your session with a visit to the sauna and steam rooms, before melting into a state of relaxation on the massage bed.

Metta Spa

Metta Spa is just a few steps from Hoi An’s bustling old market, but it’s a world away in terms of stillness. Founded by a seasoned manager of five-star resort spas, Metta Spa carefully attends to all the details of its guest experience. The menu of body treatments, facials, foot reflexology and nail care is carried out by a talented team, and the spa’s soothing decor creates a calm atmosphere for self-care.

Citrus Health Spa

Hoi An’s go-to spa for many loyal expats and international travelers, Citrus has a reputation for healing massages, blissful facials, and high quality nail treatments. The spa team, led by Ms. Van the owner, is welcoming and efficient. Citrus Health Spa uses homemade massage oils made with locally grown herbs for its treatments, as well as warm bamboo rollers, marble from Da Nang, and Vietnamese coffee grounds.
