Five stars in Hoi An

A major refurbishment including a $15m new wing and a rebrand have propelled La Siesta Resort and Spa Hoi An into one of the few 5-star category of hotels in Hoi An, one of the most visited destinations in Vietnam.

The property is owned by the Elegance Hospitality Group (EHG), which launched in Hanoi in 2006 with a 10-room hotel and specialised in boutique hotels in historic shophouses on the city’s most evocative streets.

Features include wrought iron balconies, handcrafted furniture, lake views and classic Hanoi cuisine, details that have been adopted at the hotel in Hoi An, which the company opened in 2013 and has now refurbished. 

Currently in its soft-opening phase, the new wing features a range of room types including a duplex category, poolside suites with herbal bathtubs and private saunas, and terrace suites with private Jacuzzis.

Guest rooms are set around an extensive saltwater swimming pool in three-storey buildings designed to maintain harmony with the traditional low-rise architecture that characterises Hoi An’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed old town.

With other features including a spa, fitness centre and a second hotel restaurant, the new wing heralds the next stage of EHG’s expansion, with announcements on projects in Saigon and Hanoi expected this summer.
