I have been fascinated by the culture of Vietnam since I was a child; so, visiting the country has always been a part of my bucket list. Finally, I managed to make a trip to this amazing Asian nation and I’m glad I did! For me, it was a perfect family holiday.
While our experience of exploring Vietnam was extraordinary; it was enhanced further by our choice of hotel.
We stayed at the Almanity Hoi An, a plush hotel situated in Hoi An, one of the most serene Vietnamese towns at the moment. Read through my Almanity Hoi An review to get acquainted with various features of the hotel.
Almanity Hoi An Review

The town of Hoi An used to be a port on the river Thu Bon. The town no more operates as a port and all the old houses, which were previously occupied by merchants, have been converted into chic restaurants and art galleries.
Almanity Hoi An is located just a couple of blocks towards the old town’s north. If you decide to walk, you will need just around 10-15 minutes to reach this exotic hotel from the riverfront restaurants and shops. Wondering how to get to Hoi An?

Do you want your meals to be healthy?
Four Plates, the in-house restaurant of Almanity Hoi An is known for serving remarkably tasty, yet absolutely healthy delicacies to the guests.
You will get to taste delicious cuisines from Japan, Italy, and of course Vietnam. The fact that makes Four Plates even more special is that it allows the guests to watch the chefs prepare their meals.
The hotel has a total of 145 rooms, which have been divided into five different categories. They are, My Spirit, My Energy, My Soul, My Mind, and My Heart.
As I had my wife and kids with me, I stayed at a room belonging to the My Heart category. The rooms in this category are the biggest the hotel has. For couples there the superior doubles called My Soul, while for singles the smallest and the cheapest options called the My Mind rooms would be ideal.
The My Spirit rooms are balcony-less split-level units. The My Energy rooms, on the other hand, have been designed keeping in the needs of guests who have visited Vietnam with the sole aim of relaxing. Rooms belonging to the My Energy category feature baths or Jacuzzis and are located within the spa.
Each room of the hotel have handmade dark wood furniture crafted by local artisans. The neutral shades of the fabrics and walls provide the rooms with a tranquil feel. Some of the amenities each room comes equipped with include free high-speed Wi-Fi, digital TVs, and air condition.
Is the Hotel Family Friendly?
Yes, it is. We loved the seclusion it offered. The four of us had some great time eating and playing together. Me and my wife also managed to get some romantic we-time as the kids took part in the fun activities organized by the hotel’s Kids Club.
