Its idyllic wide, sweeping shoreline and brooding, mountainous backdrop make Nha Trang, a provincial capital, an ideal stop for sun-worshippers on Vietnam’s central coast. Centrally positioned but also overlooking the bay with gorgeous turquoise views, the Sheraton has the best of beachside life on its doorstep. A short stroll from the hotel and you can pick up a jet-ski, scuba dive or snorkel, or sail to one of the many tiny islands dotted just offshore. You’re within easy reach of Dam Market and the town’s bustling nightlife too.
A 21m, fresh water infinity pool gives a cool allure to this coastal cocoon, but that’s before you step into the spa. Shine Spa for Sheraton boasts over 1,000 sq m of serenity over two floors; its rooms equipped with private showers and baths and its sensuous treatments taking you on a journey through Asia. Steam rooms, saunas and Jacuzzis, body scrubs, four-hand massages and re-energising facials will help you get back in gear and are perfectly in tune with your natural environment.
The glistening sea just outside your window, all of the Sheraton’s rooms allow you to wake up to a calming panorama of blue. Inside, the beige, yellow and dark-wood palette takes its design cues from Asia, while offering top-notch touches such as high-speed internet, 37-inch flatscreen TVs and, of course, a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed. High thread counts, rainforest showers and private balconies all add a little class too. If you can’t afford the eye-popping 30th-floor penthouse, then opt for a lavish suite, adorned with artworks and a Jacuzzi to relax in while gazing out to sea.
Adventurous types will be well suited to a stay here, as the Sheraton’s concierge has a stash of ideas from city cultural tours to trips by speed boat to tiny islands and authentic fishing villages. Nature lovers will want to spend time feeding the hundreds of cheeky characters on Monkey Island; or climbing up to the spectacular Three Lake Waterfalls. In contrast, a countryside tour by horse and cart will take you back in time as you explore the hinterland, heading through paddy fields and beautiful scenery to see local culture at its best.
Enjoy juicy dim sum and succulent steamed barbecue pork buns at Steam ’n’ Spice, an informal eaterie that will wow you with its signature dishes and noodle knowledge. A decadent buffet is on display at Feast, brought to life by chefs who cook everything from Italian to Japanese right in front of you in the cutting-edge show kitchens. But don’t just take the chef’s word for it – the Sheraton not only boasts seven venues in which to eat and drink but it also has its own purpose-built cookery school for learning all about the imaginative ingredients that go into its dishes.
