A perfect golf tour is a combination of an exciting golf round and a relaxing resort with diverse culinary services. And Hoiana Hotel & Suites fully converges these elements.
Only about an hour’s drive from Danang Airport, through the mesmerizing My Khe beach, immense nipa fields and the intersection of peaceful rivers in Cua Dai, I arrived at Hoiana Hotel & Suites’ lobby. Although I have been to many golf courses and resort complexes in Vietnam and around the world, I cannot help but be overwhelmed by the “huge” scale of this one, located on a 1000 hectares landscape with 10km of pristine coastline of Quang Nam.
Very few resorts in Vietnam reach the standard of a complex resort, connecting many valuable utilities for customers such as: high-class services, casinos, golf courses, banks, resorts, shopping, amusement parks, high-class restaurants, etc. Hoiana is the convergence of the world’s leading resort and entertainment brands invested and managed by Rosewood Hotel Group and Suncity Group, with a total investment value of more than $4 billion. This complex is expected to be completed in 2029 and will include 4 hotel complexes, golf courses, cultural centers, trade and services, shopping centers, convention centers, villas, houses. adjacent, amusement park, etc.
Stunning sunrises brighten up your day
When entering the Suite of the resort, I was really overwhelmed not only by the quality of design and construction, but each Suite has a very large balcony overlooking the sea. From this position, I can fully catch the sunrise and admire Cham Island right in front of my eyes. The most impressive moment is when relaxing by the door, sipping a cup of coffee and admiring the moment when the sun shines the first pink, yellow, orange rays on the sparkling sea at 5:15 am.
An even better location to catch the sunrise is the 16th floor infinity pool – “The Edge”. You will feel like the sea and the sky are connected without boundary, the view covers a majestic ocean space in front of you. Remember to bring a swimsuit to experience how interesting it is to watch the ocean from the high-altitude swimming pool. The special thing is that the sea water here is like blue silk strips with many different tones, created by the different depths of the ocean with a very special and unforgettable beauty.
Top golf course in the world
After a delicious breakfast at The Terrace, we enjoyed the 18-hole Hoiana Shores Golf Club golf course created by legendary golf course designer Robert Trent Jones II. Although I’ve played a few times here, I still can’t help but be moved when entering an ancient space like in Scotland or Ireland. The ancient paintings on the walls, the colonial-era tile floors, the melodious jazz music… have inspired you right from the Club-house.
Before starting your round of golf, don’t forget to take a photo at the antique clock set up on the first hole with the clubhouse in the background! Hoiana Shores is a typical links-style course with a lot of wind, sand, bushes, airy but in a tropical space. Although it was sunny, the air was dry, there was little perspiration, and there were occasional cool breezes from the ocean.
The course is easy for good players, and difficult for those who often have slides because it is easy to lose the ball in the bushes and it is hard to save the ball from the sand on both sides of the fairway. The most impressive are the coastal golf holes 14 and 15. While swinging, you can hear the waves crashing from the ocean or admire the fishing boats passing in front of you.
Đặc biệt hơn, nếu bạn chơi sáng sớm có thể chiêm ngưỡng bình minh trên biển, còn buổi chiều bạn sẽ ngỡ ngàng với vòng golf cuối ở hố 18th khi swing trong ráng vàng hoàng hôn tuyệt đẹp, hãy nhớ lưu lại video cảnh swing về phía mặt trời!
More specifically, if you play early in the morning, you can admire the sunrise on the sea, and in the afternoon you will be surprised with the last round of golf at the 18th hole when swinging in the beautiful sunset. Remember to save the swing to the sun video!
Top notch food service
At Hoiana Hotel & Suites, there are many choices for cuisine. Especially impressive is the Vietnamese food at Hao Viet Restaurant with beautiful design space, delicious food and very delicate decoration. For dinner, you can choose BBQ at the Korean Restaurant or super fresh lobster at the Chinese Restaurant located in the high-class Casino area. We came here right during the Lobsters Mania week – “Lobster Crazy”’, so we enjoyed a whole series of dishes made from lobster, especially the Lobster Cappuccino!
In the afternoon, The Cove area is for those who want to enjoy a special cocktail in the melodious music, watching the sunset show the red and yellow rays on the right side of the hotel building. Or you can also keep a table on the 16th floor The Edge bar to watch the pool while watching the sky and ocean sparkle with stars.
In addition to golf and food, you can also go to a spa, gym or book a unique basket boat tour in the coconut area or take a shuttle bus to Hoi An ancient town to take pictures, have dinner or shop. Foreign visitors coming here are extremely excited because they can discover the beauty of culture combined with nature that God has given to this golden land of Vietnam.
In general, Nam Hoi An is becoming an extremely attractive golf destination. It is a sublimated symphony of resort, golf, cuisine, culture and top-notch entertainment.
