In 2001, Hoi An’s first beach resort was erected on a beautiful stretch of Cua Dai Beach. Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa drew inspiration from the ocean, country life, and of course, the Ancient Town. It soon became one of the most popular seaside stays for beach lovers in Hoi An. And while it’s pretty easy to see why with the resort’s soothing garden and stylish suites, it’s actually the experiences that set Victoria apart. From sidecar tours to sailing and kayaking–you’ll never run out of fun things to do here. Check out our favorite reasons to stay at Victoria Hoi An below.

Ocean view bungalows

Victoria’s ocean view suites all come with a private balcony or terrace that looks out to the water on Cua Dai Beach, perfect for morning sunbaths and late-night conversations. The rooms’ Indochine interiors boast a lush yet cozy vibe, with colonial-style elements that remind you of the architecture of none other than Hoi An Ancient Town.

All-day dining

One thing you can look forward to every morning here is the breakfast buffet at L’Annam. The classy restaurant serves a mouth-watering daily buffet with Vietnamese, Asian, and Western cuisines. Fill up your plate with fresh-baked bread, homemade jams, or bowls of noodles prepared on the spot. For lunch and dinner, don’t miss the restaurant’s most popular picks such as lotus root salad, young rice shrimp, or a satisfying bowl of mi Quang.

Poolside cocktails

The infinity pool overlooking Cua Dai Beach at Victoria is one of the most amazing swimming pools in Hoi An. So go ahead and spend a whole lazy day under the palm shade here, it’s completely justified. But if you still need one more reason to stick around, the poolside Faifo Bar is stocked with Irish cider, Mexican beer, and classic cocktails for one (or a few) laid-back sundowners.

TIP: Travelers can also purchase the Victoria Hoi An day pass for 300,000 VND to gain access to the fantastic swimming pool, tennis court, fitness gym, sauna and steam rooms for the day. Guests who lunch at the L’Annam Restaurant are also offered complimentary use of the pool.

Sailing lessons

Take up single-hand sailing at Victoria Hoi An and learn how to maneuver a TOPCAT K3 catamaran on Cua Dai Beach. If you just want to sit back and relax on a sailing boat, the resort’s experienced sailing instructors can take you out on the water to explore the 300-meter coastline. Victoria Hoi An also offers surfing, windsurfing, and kayaking to travelers who want to stay active on their holiday.

Sidecar tours

Sure, cycling around the Hoi An countryside is fun, but have you ever tried a vintage sidecar? Whizz through fragrant rice fields and along soothing rivers from the passenger seat of a Victoria’s vintage sidecar on this one-hour tour, perfect for photography enthusiasts. The unique tour also takes you past fish farms and Tra Que vegetable village, where you can learn more about a day in the life of a Hoi An farmer.
