Four Season, The Nam Hai, Hoi An, Vietnam
Set over three tantalising tiers that cascade down towards the glimmering ocean beyond, this is a pool that appeals to all, catering for families in part, with sections for adults only, an Olympic-proportioned area for those with swimming in mind and a luxurious lap pool for guests who prefer to lie back and take it easy.
Coastal living doesn’t get a whole lot better than this, with a kilometre-long stretch of private beach to explore, water sports galore to try and indulgence on tap amidst the tropical gardens that showcase Vietnamese hospitality at its finest.
For those keen to explore a little further afield, there are three UNESCO sites close at hand and ancient towns, cities and temple complexes to discover in Vietnam’s central cultural heartland. Sightseeing over, you’ll want to unwind in the soothing waters, or perhaps enjoy a poolside cocktail from a luxurious lounger beneath the swaying palms.
