Vinh Hung Emerald Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 September 2013

My wife and I stayed at this hotel during out honeymoon and it is one of the best hotels we have ever been to and definitely the best value. The room was clean, spacious and our balcony overlooked the lovely pool. The breakfast buffet offered something for everyone and the pool bar had excellent cocktails and service. Hoi An is a short walk but you feel secluded enough from the noisy, fun bars by the river. Cannot speak highly enough of the Emerald Resort and wish we could have stayed longer the three nights.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled as a couple

Travelled with three teenage children in September. What a wonderful break during our 3 week stay in Vietnam. The resort is brilliant, with friendly staff, large rooms and a great location. Our children used the large clean pool consistently, offering relief during the hot days.

The staff were extremely accommodating and stopped us during the stay to check that we were happy with everything. When I mentioned that my husband thought the bed was a little hard, they immediately bought in a pillow top to make it softer. When my daughter saw a spider in her room they moved the kids to another room for the night until housekeeping could come in and check that it had gone. Nice!

The buffet breakfast was wonderful with a variety of food on offer. The pool bar was also reasonably priced.

The hotel is in a quiet street only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Hoi An. We hired bikes for $1 a day and rode all around the town safely. We also road out to the beach and had a swim, stopping at a great little cafe (Dingo Cafe) on the way back for a fantastic meal- highly recommended. There are 3 small shops at the front of the hotel that offer laundry services $1 for 1 kg and cold drinks/snacks.

I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again without hesitation. Make sure you include Hoi An in your trip to Vietnam (allow 3-4 days). This resort was an absolute gem!

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious and have easy access to restaurant and pool.

We have stayed in that resort for 2 nights in September. It is not huge resort but very stylish, cosy and gave us feeling of privacy.
We did not have much lack as when we have arrived there was a small tropical depression coming in so it was heavily raining.
We have been picked from the airport and upon arrival to the resort our bags has been taken by portieres and we have been leaded to the reception when we have been greeted and all check in procedures has been done smoothly and without any problems. Then we have been taken to our room by one of the receptionists. Few minutes later our bags has been brought in so nothing to complain about.

I will put our comments in points:

1. Room
We have booked Pool View room which was on the first floor. Room is very spacious, well design and well equipped (fridge/ mini bar, safe box, safe, kettle) so all you might need. Bed was huge and very comfortable. Airconditioner was very efficient and very quiet. Just perfect. Balcony with the pool view (you could also see river). Also cleanliness of the room was great. Everything spotless.
In general nothing to complain about.

2. Service
I have to say that service in the hotel is exceptional. All staff is very polite always smiling and always willing to help. Whatever you asked them to do, they were willing to help.
On the first evening of our stay we have received complimentary bottle of wine which was a very nice touch. When I have asked reception about this wine (as we were not expecting) instead of giving us explanation over the phone someone came from reception to tell us that this is a complementary wine and also to make sure that we have a bottle opener.
And when we have been leaving for the airport they not only put our bags to the car but were standing there and waiving.
3. Resort
As mentioned before it is not huge resort. It is very new, well maintained and very clean. We loved swimming pool which we had a chance to use twice. Not deep but enough to have few dives. Small bar next to the pool offering very good quality cocktails. A lot of sun beds and towels to use.
If you were too lazy to go to your room they had toilets there as well (no need to mention that there were very clean).
Also restaurant was really pleasant with the pool/ river view.
Resort is located on the island in walk in distance from old town centre.

4. Food
Again nothing to complain. Buffet breakfast was a mixture of Vietnamese and eastern food with huge variety to choose from. Hot coffee, tea and different juices.
We once had a lunch as well and again food was very taste, well spiced and portion was huge.

5. Summary
This is very good resort. Everything is done up to the high standards. Everything is clean and well organised.
Although it is not the cheapest resort (we have paid 1mln dongs per night), it was worth those money and we were very happy to stay they. You just feel very welcome and very comfortable and you feel a dose of luxury when you are there.

We can recommend this resort to everyone who will visit Hoi-An.

we booked 2 rooms travelling with kids aged 10 and 12, for them the highlight was the pool, everything was perfect. Very clean and well maintained, yes the bathroom layout a bit odd, but really how much time are you spending there. Beds a bit to firm for me but OK. A few movie channels and kids channels kept the kids occupied when needed. We both had neck, back shoulder massages in the resort. Lots of people talked about bargain massages in the town but really wasn't worth haggling as the resort was so cheap. Our highlight was happy hour - the amazing Vinh was possibly one of the best cocktail makers ever, a true craftsman and very personable. His best was the spicy passion margarita. Make sure you get down to the pool between 3 an 6, if not get down there anyway to see him for a great drink! Mrs Sa across the road was a great laundress. A different soup every morning was a highlight for breakfast and the tiny crème caramels. We stayed 5 nights and it wasn't enough, book more than you think you want to is our tip

Room Tip: ask for a room away from reception and restuarant

Great service. We stayed here and then came back after Hoian. We liked it so much, we wanted to stay again and they remembered us. Great location for riding bicycles around. Felt very safe. Wish we could have Stayed longer.

Room Tip: River view room at the ground level is the best and hard to reserved, and ask for it if available
