When traveling to Vietnam, being immersed in the local way of life is the most enlightening experience to discover the beauty and vibrancy of Vietnamese culture.

community leadership

With more than 98 percent of the staff hailing from Hoi An and Danang, each member of the Four Seasons team brings a sense of place with extensive knowledge of local culture and demonstrates the warmth of Vietnamese hospitality, from heartwarming, welcoming service in a traditional way Ao Dai uniform to friendly smiles and gentle treatment from caring and sympathy from the heart.

The resort preserves a historic temple on site, Thanh Hoang Temple, and celebrates the importance of traditional rituals and welcomes local fishermen who perform monthly prayers to invoke blessings, good fortune and protection from the Guardian of the Sea. This ancient traditional temple is now part of the resort’s landmark.

Unique architecture

Paying homage to traditional dwellings, the all-villa resort interprets the Vietnamese tradition of architecture as an art form. Aesthetic and symbolic, each villa brings with it traditional Vietnamese design that combines structure, landscape and Phong Thuj (commonly known as feng shui) with brilliant effect, with interior pillars, a multi-functional central sleeping platform, and a large space for natural ventilation.

Inspirational spa concept

Nestled in a lotus lagoon, Heart of the Earth Spa is an earth-attuned spa that inspires guests to be mindful and connect with Mother Nature, our natural healer.

Each blissful treatment is placed in one of three feel-good categories – stability, creativity and worthlessness – complemented by crystal singing bowl experiences tuned to 432 Hz, nature’s harmonious intonation. Named “Best Emotional Recovery” Space by Conde Nast Traveler In 2019, a visit to the award-winning spa is a deep self-discovery expedition into one’s inner self, connecting as an inseparable being with the natural environment.
