Hoi An, Vietnam

This high-design property arrived on the South China Sea in 2006, and its sleek style is a testament to the impressive talent behind its inception. Aman Resorts founder Adrian Zecha, French architect Reda Amalou, and Indonesian interior designer Jaya Ibrahim(whose past projects include the Chedi Milan) all collaborated on the Nam Hai’s 100 freestanding villas, each of which is made from local wood, with elaborate hand-carved screens, pressed-eggshell surfaces, and stone floors. The property is set on a remote beach in Central Vietnam outside the quaint town of Hoi An—once a 16th-century trading port—and houses three swimming pools and a spa with sublime overwater relaxation rooms. Extras include wool-and-cotton-blend bathrobes and outdoor showers.

Room to Book:

Request one of the 16 freestanding bungalows along Hoi An’s famed powdery-white shore for the best beach access.        

Insider Tip:

A rotating roster of local chefs lead culinary trips to nearby markets where guests stock up on fresh-cut chickens and rice-paper noodles for a traditional Thai lunch back at the resort.
