Seahorse Resort & Spa: Tropical tranquility

Tropical tranquility

Seahorse Resort & Spa in Mui Ne is the best choice for those hoping to experience the atmosphere of Vietnam’s countryside.

With natural landscapes surrounded by breathtaking views of the ocean, Seahorse Resort & Spa is just 11 km from Phan Thiet city and about three and a half hours by car, or 200 km, from Ho Chi Minh City. The four-star resort is situated by the main beach with clean white sand and plenty of sun beds, covering 23,000 sq m. From the entrance, guests can see amazing tropical gardens with a mix of palm trees and grass and even a little rice field. The layout is ideal, taking advantage of shade from its many trees while offering a beautiful experience on evening walks, with the sound of waves breaking ashore in the background. It also brings guests a sense of freshness and peacefulness, like in Vietnam’s countryside.

The resort has 40 luxurious Bungalows and 59 Deluxe Rooms and Suites. The Bungalows and other buildings at the resort have been built in the traditional Vietnamese style and are of international standard, providing a simple but beautiful architecture that blends perfectly with the relaxing environment.

Each Bungalow and Room design has its own inspiration, with every feature connected to the surrounding environment while ensuring comfort and convenience. Those with garden views are decorated simply and in keeping with the surroundings, while those with sea views are secluded in a lush tropical garden paradise. Guests in Deluxe Sea View Rooms can relax and enjoy a gorgeous view over the Mui Ne coastline amid an atmosphere of tropical tranquility. The resort offers many room categories, including Bungalow Garden View, Bungalow Pool View, and Bungalow Sea View, to name just a few.

Though the style of the bungalows may be the same as old local beach huts, the Seahorse Resort & Spa has gone the extra mile to provide total luxury in the interior and exterior design as well as the furnishings. The bathroom, which is fully tiled, offers a good-sized space and a large amount of light, and every detail has been catered to, including a vast range of toiletries, slippers and towel drying stands.

The bedrooms are relatively large and the bed design fantastic, with beautiful local artwork on the walls. The pillows have been filled with local leaves, offering extra comfort and a delicate aroma to help with sleep. All rooms have free wi-fi and are equipped with a sofa, a minibar and a wardrobe.

Late last year, the resort reopened its swimming pool; the first infinity swimming pool in Mui Ne and directly overlooking the sea, providing guests the chance to relax after a tiring day.

The resort has two restaurants and one bar where guests can enjoy the best dining in town. If you’re a fan of traditional Vietnamese food, Seahorse Bistro should be your first stop. It’s located on the grounds of the resort and where you can enjoy the dishes made from seafood, local cuisine like pancakes, and “Lau Tha” hotpot. With a spacious garden and a sea breeze, a glass of red wine and delicious food will you feel happy among family and friends.

The Hippocampe Restaurant, meanwhile, also boasts great cuisine. Located right on the beach, you can watch the sunset after a long day while tasting its varied and unique dishes.

Non La Bar, situated on the southwestern corner of the resort’s large swimming pool, is a relaxing, casual place to enjoy an international cocktail or local drinks while watching the sun set behind nearby mountains.

One service guests should definitely try at the resort is its spa service, in a spacious area enhanced with Vietnamese characteristics. Its perfect treatments, which are a mix of modern and ancient therapies, will relieve stress and encourage relaxation, with the use of essential oils and fresh lemongrass. Or refresh your body from the outside, through the scrub with roses and a therapeutic herbal bath. All ten spacious rooms are designed with natural stone and wood and natural light is transmitted into each room, make the space airy and quiet.

Besides the spa, the resort also offers services such as wedding receptions, cooking classes, excursions, and meetings.

The resort is one of only a few international hotels where the only thing international is the quality and high customer services, as the ownership, management and staff are 100 per cent Vietnamese, but the resort caters to both local and international guests, who will feel as though they are in paradise.
