Best Western has added an island resort off the coast of Vietnam to its rapidly growing portfolio.

Set on the golden shores of Hon Tam Island, close to the resort town of Nha Trang, the new Best Western Premier Hon Tam Resort and Residences offers a private island sanctuary, lapped by the azure waters of the South China Sea.

Accessible only by boat, the resort feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of Nha Trang. Designed as an eco-resort, the Best Western Premier Hon Tam Resort and Residences offers just 49 low-rise bungalows, all designed in a traditional Vietnamese architectural style.

Each features its own private balcony overlooking the sea, mountains or gardens.

Accommodation units range from the 52m² deluxe bungalows to the 64m² family suite bungalows, and include the latest luxury amenities such as flat screen televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi, large bathrooms with bathtubs and separate showers.

Other resort facilities include a swimming pool, spa, fitness centre, sauna, steam room, game room, karaoke room, two meeting rooms and outdoor venue capable of holding up to 900 guests.

Guests can also indulge at the resort’s four food and beverage outlets. The Garden Restaurant offers breakfast and all-day international dishes, while the Ocean Restaurant offers local Vietnamese delicacies overlooking the South China Sea.

The Viet coffee shop meanwhile, offers local and international coffees and snacks, while the Pool Bar offers daytime refreshments for bathers soaking up the tropical sun.

“Vietnam is one of Asia’s hottest new destinations and the Nha Trang coast is now drawing large numbers of domestic and international visitors,” said Best Western International’s Vice President International Operations Asia and the Middle East, Glenn de Souza.

“To be able to add this stunning, exclusive island resort to our portfolio is indeed an honour, and we are confident it will become a new jewel in the Best Western crown. Best Western Premier Hon Tam Resort and Residences will add a new dimension this exciting region.”

Best Western Premier Hon Tam Resort and Residences becomes the company’s fifth property in Vietnam, and the second for its luxury Best Western Premier brand.

The company’s Vietnamese development will gather pace in coming months and years, with a further three hotels expected to launch in the country by the end of 2014.
