Vie Spa at Hyatt Regency Danang ReSoRt & Spa
When Hyatt Danang opened for business a few months ago, itshowed the world just what can be achieved given the will andresources. The impressive contemporary architecture seems toembrace the ocean that it faces and is a refreshing departure fromresort designs along the coast. Guests wake up in rooms with moderninteriors of pine-coloured wood panels, sliding mirror doors andnatural stone bath tubs — and have to remind themselves that theyare not in Phuket or Bali. There are 200 guestrooms, 174 apartmentunits and 27 three-bedroom villas, so you can imagine how bigthe resort is. Their restaurants serve great Vietnamese and westerncuisines so you need not have to worry about dining outside theresort.Vie Spa, located away from the main building, has a fountain outfront and an inviting lobby. On the menu are signature packages,facials, massages, scrubs, wraps, baths and so on. Their sessions canlast between two and four hours and include a light Vietnamesemeal. Treatments are done in secluded villas with an outdoor bathtub, in case you need to take a dip before your session.
