Enjoy Hoi An in one of the finest riverside resorts in the heart of the ancient town.

At the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2018 held in Bali, Indonesia, last November, Silk Sense Hoi An River Resort picked up two prestigious awards: Global Winner in Luxury Riverside Hotel and Continent Winner (Asia) in Luxury Garden Resort. The awards confirm that the resort is one of the best getaways on Vietnam’s central coast and provide encouragement for the resort’s management to strive for further improvements.

Touch of the senses

Silk Sense Hoi An River Resort is on the banks of the serene Co Co River, a prime location just 35 minutes from Da Nang International Airport and convenient for discovering nearby attractions.

The resort boasts a refined and elegant style with an environmental preservation concept, which carries a message of “In Touch with the Senses”. 

It offers a wide range of features in 86 rooms and villas with spectacular riverside views. A blend of Oriental and Western architecture, the contemporary boutique resort has all the appointments necessary to provide a superb and comfortable stay of international four-plus-star standard.

The resort features different room categories to meet varied accommodation needs. Its well-sized and fully-equipped 60 hotel rooms and 26 suites guarantee a relaxing stay away from the daily hustle and bustle. One of the resort’s signature accommodation types is the Sense Suite, which showcases a modern décor with elegant touches and fine natural materials that create a sense of refined simplicity, with a beautifully landscaped garden featuring sunbeds and a 15 sq m outdoor private pool. This incredibly spacious suite is large enough to accommodate five adults, making it ideal for family and friends and with an open living space and fully-equipped kitchen.

In Sense Premium, guests can enjoy a stay of sanctuary in exceptional coziness. Each of these 16 premium suites offers a sense of privacy, with spacious dimensions and its own garden and a 20 sq m plunge pool. They also feature separate sleeping and living areas, open-air bathrooms, and balconies facing both the Co Co River and the resort’s garden.

The resort’s Family Suite is one of the most popular choices and features two bedrooms and a living room. There is a beautiful 120 sq m garden in the Family Suite Private Garden.

Other categories include Junior Suite, Deluxe, and Superior, all offering stylish, comfortable, and spacious rooms with views of the pool and the serene Co Co River. 

A gastronomic experience can be found at Nypa restaurant. Sense Spa, meanwhile, is located in the heart of the resort and a destination for those seeking relaxation, rejuvenation and beauty treatments. The spa is also surrounded by a fragrant lotus lake, where many visitors take boat trips to enjoy the sunset and other interesting experiences and services.

The salt infinity pool is the best place to spend time, with an icy cold cocktail from Nypa Café & Deli.

One guest who stayed at Silk Sense Hoi An River Resort said: “Apart from the lovely rooms, beautiful gardens, swimming pool, free shuttle into Hoi An, and amazing cocktails, the best thing about the resort was the staff. They were so helpful and friendly and it’s impossible to single out one for special praise. We will definitely stay at the Silk Sense Hoi An River Resort on our next visit.”

Sustainable development

Silk Sense Hoi An River Resort is the brainchild of A Dong Silk, a leading brand in personal tailoring in Hoi An. Silk Sense is a four-plus-star riverfront resort born to create ideal accommodation, contribute to the ever-growing use of silk, and introduce related culture to guests.

“As a boutique resort, we were honored to be recognized at the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2018,” said Mr. Tran, Chairman of A Dong Silk. “We are proud not only of the success of Silk Sense Resort but also our contribution to attracting more tourists to Hoi An and Vietnam. We welcome travelers from around the world with world-class products, impressive services, and upscale international standards.”

As a green community, the construction area at Silk Sense Hoi An River Resort accounts for only 30 per cent of the total area, and all rooms have balconies overlooking the garden and the poetic Co Co River. In addition to high-standard facilities such as restaurants, bars, outdoor cafés, an infinity salt pool, gyms, spas, and recreational services on the river, the resort also has an organic garden on 3,500 sq m, which provides clean fruit and vegetables and to its restaurants and cafés. There will also be a high-class conference room with a capacity of 300 guests, to be put into operation in the opening months of this year. The infinity pool, meanwhile, is treated with sea salt that is good for the skin, and Silk Sense is favored by guests for its peace and quiet while not being far from local attractions.

Known as the “Travel Oscars”, the World Luxury Hotel Awards have been held for 13 years and evaluate and recognize the accomplishments of the world’s most luxurious hotels and resorts. The 2018 awards attracted more than 1,000 entries and more than 340,000 votes from the public as well as hotel industry critics. Silk Sense Hoi An River Resort views the recent awards from the World Luxury Hotel Awards as motivation to help it continue to grow and be discovered by guests seeking a destination where they will be pampered, can play, and have unforgettable experiences in Hoi An.
