About Nha Trang

A high-rise, high-energy beach resort town. The setting is undoubtedly spectacular – ringed by a range of mountains and overlooking one of the world’s most beautiful bays, its pristine waters dotted with tropical islands. The best hotels range from quirky boutiques to immaculate resorts, and our recommendations for the best places to stay in Nha Trang all offer unrivalled service.

Nha trang is a party town at heart, but worry not if cocktails and clubbing aren’t your thing. Perhaps an old-school spa treatment or mud bath is more to your taste.

Looking for culture? Explore the centuries-old Cham Towers that stand near the town centre.

Feeling adventurous? Nha trang offers some of the best scuba diving in the country, as well as great rafting and mountain-biking tours.

If you can pry yourself from the sun and the sand, the Alexandre Yersin museum is a hidden gem. It tells the fascinating story of Yersin and of the discovery and use for the quinine tree – a small but important piece of medical history. Just don’t get caught out by the tricky opening hours.

The best places to stay in Nha Trang take full advantage of the ocean and are therefore located right on the beach. Each of our picks are as comfortable and luxurious as the next, though if you are looking for something really special, we recommend The Six Senses at Ninh Van Bay or the An Lam Villas – set against dramatic rock formations stay here for an unforgettable experience.

What not to miss:

  • Discover colourful tropical fish, moray eels, and pufferfish as well as thriving coral reefs on a scuba diving excursion.

  • Hire a boat and spend a day exploring the surrounding islands.

  • Rent a bike and cycle through picturesque villages and countryside.

  • Do as the locals and unwind in a mud bath believed to have restorative properties.

Such a beautiul location means that many of the best places to stay in Nha Trang are very popular so be sure to book early.
