Essence Hoian Hotel & Spa

  • For several years, we at the Hanoi Elegance Hotel group have been travelling to Hoi An on business and have stayed in many of the town’s hotels. Although over the years Hoi An’s tourist industry has grown and developed, in our opinion we feel the town’s hotel industry does not fully meet guests’ expectations. The 4 and 5 star hotels are certainly well appointed with good facilities and ambiance, but they lack detail and an attentive service. And the prices are often too high in relation to the standard of service.

    2 and 3 star hotels have a more personal, intimate feel and are certainly a lot cheaper. But in turn their facilities and amenities are not up to international standards due to the cost cutting and poor construction. Therefore visitors to Hoi An often have to compromise between facilities, price and service when choosing where to stay.

    We wanted to address this issue. We decided to build a hotel in Hoi An where visitors can have a comfortable and luxurious stay in a resort-style hotel at an affordable price. The hotel opened in August 2013 under the name of Essence Hoi An Hotel & Spa.

    Located on Hung Vuong Street, on the edge of Hoi An’s old town and not far from the Japanese Covered Bridge, this brand new 4+ star resort-hotel with 5 star service nestles on the edge of quiet lush green paddy fields away from the crowds of the old town.

    Set in a tropical garden, the style embodies authentic Hoi An charm mixed with modern influences. Our guest rooms have either balconies or large windows bringing you close to nature in a luxurious and comfortable setting. A couple can enjoy their stay in a Deluxe room or Suite while a Family room with balcony or a Luxurious Pool View Suite with connecting rooms are large enough for a family of 4/5. . We provide private transfers from Danang airport or rail station, daily buffet breakfast, morning Tai Chi, afternoon tea and sunset cocktails as well as many other complimentary services and amenities.

    From the hotel, you can take a leisurely stroll into the Old Town or nearby Thanh Ha Pottery village. In addition, we run a shuttle bus service to places further afield such as to Cua Dai Beach. Alternatively relax and enjoy the hotel environs - the garden pool, have a drink in one of the hotel bars overlooking the rice fields, work out in the gym. Or for those seeking serenity and rejuvenation enjoy our extensive spa menu at La Siesta Spa hidden within the lush garden.

    The hotel is managed by our renowned Hanoi Elegance & Essence team of professionals who lead the way in Hanoi. And we now bring the very best service to Hoi An Town.

    Enjoy your stay with us in Hoi An!
