The vast beachside strip along Da Nang’s My Khe (China) Beach is bursting with new ocean-fronted resorts. All the big names are here and many of the lesser-known brands too. Naman Retreat is a brand new property enjoying accolades on its own merit, not by dint of some multinational badge. Billed as “a secluded, beachfront enclave nestled between two of the finest golf courses in Southeast Asia”, Naman Retreat certainly has
a character of its own that sets it apart from its more predictable neighbours.
The Hay Hay Restaurant is a minor architectural marvel “drawing inspiration from traditional influence of Hanoi, the kitchens of the Imperial Citadel in Hue, and contemporary tastes of Ho Chi Minh City”. The ceiling, pillars and gables are all created using long blades of bamboo and the effect is nothing short of stunning.
The Naman Retreat has a total of 102 rooms, comprising 32 suites and 70 private pool villas. The beachfront villas are the choice picks with their own plunge pools and generous living spaces, while at the rear of the property is a more conventional low-rise building housing the 32 entry-level, 45sqm Babylon Rooms featuring contemporary interior design, luxurious fittings and high-end amenities.
The large, 300-person auditorium lends itself to meetings and conferences and, of course, the signature Pure Spa facility is a standout feature as you would expect.
