We stayed at the Boutique Hoi An Resort for four nights last week. From the moment we arrived and were greeted warmly, given hot towels and a lovely cool drink, we knew we had chosen the best place to stay in Hoi An.
We booked this hotel back in January and because our booking was early we were upgraded at that time to a Boutique Deluxe Room. These rooms are in villas set in the grounds with one other room next door. They are very spacious with a king size bed, sofa, writing table and chair and a large bathroom. There is an outside terrace with 2 chairs and a table.
The bed is comfortable though hard which seems to be the style in all good Vietnamese hotels. The air conditioning is quiet and the bathroom is divided into a shower, toilet and the vanity has two wash basins. The only thing missing from the room was an iron and ironing board. There are two great golf umbrellas which we used every day.
Unfortunately, we struck the rain from 2 typhoons so it was wet each day we were there. The only day we awoke to a clear sky, was the day we were leaving. We did manage to go for a walk along the beach that morning. The sand is soft and and there are umbrellas and chairs to sit under if you prefer the beach to the pool. From our walk, we found that the Boutique Resort was the nicest of the 4 or 5 other resorts we saw.
The shuttle is great and takes about 10 minutes into the centre of Hoi An. It is free and runs about 5 or 6 times a day. If you miss the shuttle at either end, the taxi fare is only $4. Hoi An is great for buying and having clothes made as well as leather jackets and shoes. It also has good restaurants at around $30 for two or even less depending on where you eat.
We ate out at Morning Glory and Cargo which are owned by the same owner. Both times we were given great tables upstairs on the balcony. We also had two dinners at the hotel and of course breakfast each morning. The dinners were fine but we preferred to eat out in the town for more variety and of course half the price. Also the wine list at the hotel was quite sparse. Due to the wet weather this was the reason we ate at the hotel on two nights.
The staff are wonderful and cannot do too much for you. The hotel is only a year old and everything is in pristine condition. We saw the resort at its worst, with rain coming down in buckets and huge winds and yet we loved our time there. I can only imagine how perfect it would be in good weather. If ever we plan another trip to Vietnam, we will put the Boutique Hoi An Resort on our must see again list.
