Gracing the sands of Non Nuoc Beach, the 5-star Sheraton Grand Danang on Vietnam’s Central Coast is the perfect destination for stylish sun-seekers craving a weekend escape from Saigon. A 1.5-hour flight and a short car service will drop you in front of the resort—where the rush of the city will fade away, to be replaced by palm trees and sparkling blue waters.
As the bell-boy spirits your luggage off to your room, cast off your urban exhaustion and head straight to the resort’s uber-chic beach club, La Plage. Indulge in one of the restaurant’s fresh-pressed juices and Asian starters and take in the full scope of your surroundings. The resort is less of a hotel and more of a private village, designed to fit seamlessly into the 17.3 acres of tropical landscape that surround it. A quarter-kilometre long infinity pool winds its way between the resort buildings and beneath arched bridges to culminate in a half-moon bay facing a private beach.
Alfresco Dining and Sun-Soaked Beaches
The modern luxury of the beach club is bathed in natural light. The sea awaits just beyond the endless waters of the infinity pool. What’s next? A quick swim or a stop by Shine Spa for a full-body massage? Really, there are no bad choices.
If you’re travelling with little ones take heart in the fact that there is a dedicated pool for children next to the infinity pool as well as a Kid’s Club. Even the most discerning mini-guests will love the poolside snack menu. Happy kids mean relaxed parents.
Back up to your deluxe room with your choice of view: sea, pool or Son Tra Peninsula. That tap on your door is room service bringing up a bottle of wine to enjoy sundowners on your private balcony or perhaps from your personal plunge pool. As the sky turns to deep indigo, dress smart and head down to The Grill. The restaurant with its moody lighting and pin-striped chairs gives off just the right amount of dapper. From Wednesday to Sunday, you can enjoy grilled Tomahawk steaks prepared tableside or the restaurant’s signature seafood tower.
After dinner, head to the Mix Bar where a bartender will shake up a signature cocktail or you can sample one of the bar’s 60 different types of whiskeys. Sip your drink to the soothing tunes of live jazz—perfect for a romantic evening or just simply to chill out after a long day of relaxation. Then it’s off to dreamland in the downy comfort of a Sheraton Sleep Experience bed.
In the morning, the buffet breakfast at Table 88, served until 11 a.m., accommodates even the latest risers. You’ll need your strength for a day of exploration.
The resort is situated midway between Danang to the North and Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the South.
Despite the fact that Danang is one of the largest cities in Vietnam, the tree-lined boulevards, wide-open beaches and French architecture craft a constant vacation vibe. The Marble Mountains are only five minutes from the Sheraton Grand Danang resort and are a perfect place to start your day with a hike. If you’re travelling with children you’ll want to put Ba Na Hills on your itinerary, especially the new Golden Bridge. The surreal bridge supported by stone hands was the Instagram darling of 2018.
For those who prefer alleyways and architecture, no visit to the Central Coast would be complete without a stop by the ancient city of Hoi An. If your visit coincides with the lantern festival that takes place on the 14th day of every lunar month, then you’re in for a treat. Watch as the sun sets and the entire town gets illuminated by a soft and colourful glow.
When you’ve had your fill of exploring, it’s back to barefoot bliss at the Sheraton Grand Danang.
Despite the posh vacation setting, Sheraton Grand Danang is not only for leisure travellers. With its 258 guest rooms and sizable conference spaces, the resort is also an ideal location for business conferences. Sheraton Grand Danang Resort is the largest luxury MICE hotel in the city, accommodating up to 1000 guests.
Sheraton Grand Danang is more than just a hotel it is an experience. The excellent service and natural beauty of the resort will have you planning your next mini-vacation to paradise before you’ve even checked-out.
