SPANISH LUXURY IN VIETNAM

08 May 2024

The new Gran Melia Nha Trang brings European flair into the Vietnam coast.

WHY GO

Nha Trang must be one of the most underrated destinations in Vietnam. Come for the beach, the food, sea sports, high-end resorts, golf, and did we mention the beach? Doc Let Beach is a pristine stretch about 60km north of the city, or you can just hit Long Beach just outside town. And if you fancy a round of golf, Vinpearl Nha Trang is as good as any a resort layout to satisfy your needs.

THE RESORT

Newly opened by Melia Hotel International, Gran Melia Nha Trang is located in its own private bay with the Fairy Mountain peaks behind and the sea stretching out in front. The upscale sanctuary inspired by the surrounding landscape and born out of the idea of “a life well-lived.” This ethos is ingrained in every aspect of the resort from its elegant and sophisticated design to its personalized service and passion for gastronomy.

The resort is situated within a new, world-class leisure and entertainment destination in Nha Trang, Vega City. The complex boasts a range of activities, such as an opera house called the Do theatre, a beach club, and a quaint walking street with shophouses.

WHERE YOU SLEEP

The new property features 94 expansive private pool villas designed in a sleek and minimalist style with interiors dressed in luxury European brands and nods to the surrounding environment.

The Ocean Front Villa’s dining room walls mimic the undulating waves of the ocean. In the Gran Ocean Villas, it’s the sandy shores that provide inspiration with a neutral colour palette that evokes a feeling of tranquility. The two-story 348 sq m Deluxe Villas feature three bedrooms, a rooftop terrace, separate living and dining areas, and a private pool.

Beachfront Villas are 495.4 sq m with stunning sea views, four bedrooms, lounge and dining areas, private terraces and a plunge pool overlooking the water. The Gran Ocean Villa is the largest villa at 686 sq m and features four bedrooms, lofty ceilings, stylish decor and design, and an unobstructed sea view.

EAT AND DRINK

The Hispania restaurant takes its gastronomic direction by Marcos Morán, an award- winning, fifth-generation chef. Four other dining destinations introduce global flavours from Japan to the Mediterranean. Shibui has a contemporary menu that highlights kaiseki cuisine, a sushi bar, and a teppanyaki counter. Natura serves Vietnamese cuisine that highlights the bounty of the natural world through a blend of local specialties and Mediterranean dishes.

The chic lobby bar Theia embraces with abundant natural light and sparkling ocean views through floor to ceiling windows. And the laid-back Sal pool bar offers refreshing cocktails and light bites.

REST & RECREATION

Song Spa has four treatment rooms and myriad treatments including shiatsu. There is also an infinity pool, private outdoor onsens overlooking lagoons, a pilates, yoga and gym studio with a sea view. The property also has a 128 sq m multi-function space that can cater for up to 90 people.

Kids are kept busy at the Wanderlust kids club, and guests can also be entertained by the plethora of activities ranging from chef experiences to movie nights in the cinema. Exceptional Experiences is a collection of bespoke offerings to visit the best of Nha Trang.

GETTING THERE

The nearest airport is Cam Ranh International Airport, approximately a 55-minute drive from the property.
