Da Nang Marriott Resort & Spa is an idyllic retreat nestled among the captivating panoramas of Non-Nuoc Beach. This is the same beach that has been highlighted by Forbes magazine as one of the world’s most breathtaking beaches. Da Nang Marriott Resort & Spa consists of oceanview and garden view rooms to private pool villas also with garden and ocean views. This Resort & Spa was taken over by Marriott in 2022.
Da Nang which is located on the coast in central Vietnam is perfect to visit in Spring as it is not packed with tourists yet and the temperatures are a very nice 26-28 degrees during the day.
The Da Nang Marriott Resort is famous for its sophisticated and luxurious Indochine style, reflected in each piece of wooden furniture and embroidered brocade cushions, classic table lamps, and working desks. If you’re planning an event in Da Nang you should reserve the Grand Ballroom which can host up to 600 guests. This is ideal for hosting gatherings while overlooking serene beaches! There are also beachfront villas with wood furniture and spacious bathrooms complete with balconies all to enjoy away from prying eyes!
Just a stone’s throw away from the Da Nang Marriott Resort is the striking caves and Buddhist sanctuaries on Marble Mountains. Make sure you take the time to visit Hoi An ancient town during your stay, it is only a 20-minute taxi ride away.
At Da Nang Marriott Resort, guests will find all of the luxuries typically found in five-star accommodations including five large pools around the resort. Having so many pool options is very rare to find here in Da Nang. The esteemed staff team offers an effervescent welcome to guests in the serene lobby, the pampering concierge service made sure I was served lovely iced ginger tea with ice-cold cooling towels.
I like seeing and being greeted by staff wearing the national traditional dress in Vietnam called ao. I found the staff went that extra mile to assist where ever possible, throughout my stay.
I was greeted by this unique location within an ecological reserve, this exquisite setting is truly unlike any other accommodation I have stayed at!
Five Swimming Pools
The focal part of the Da Nang Marriott Beach & Spa resort is the five swimming pools. That acter for all guests young and old. no matter where I sat whether it was experiencing the delights of breakfast at Goji Kitchen. Eating fine food at Madame Son. Or sipping a fresh coconut at the Writer’s Bar. There was always an inviting view for me to swim in these pools.
There was a lap pool dedicated to those wanting to get fit like my husband and featured well over 40 meters in length. There was a huge central lounge pool with an infinity edge located almost at the beach, here you can soak up the day and hear the sound of the ocean. A small children’s pool for kids to be safe and have endless fun. I noticed a dedicated set of life jackets and lifeguards for everyone’s safety. The other two swimming pools catered for adults looking to escape and soak up the luxurious tropical atmosphere.
If the swimming pool was not enough I could maintain my fitness regime in the resort gym. I liked that there was dedicated staff to help me with any unfamiliar fitness equipment. There were also tennis courts available which are surrounded by luxurious tropical trees.
Plenty of hotels offer Spa services with most of them pretty dated and run down. But at the Da Nang Marriott Beach Resort, the Quan Spa was a wonderful place to indulge in a massage. The decor and spotless spa centre were beautiful to experience. I liked the salt room which is where I waited for a deep tissue massage.
The hotel boasts an elaborate massage and beauty centre, as well as a plunge pool on its first level. In anticipation of my treatment, I was delighted to discover a unique salt room something quite rare in Da Nang!
Make time to stroll around the gardens. I felt at ease exploring the serene gardens, both day and night. It’s not just the tranquil atmosphere, but also the laid-back vibe that visitors can savour as they stroll through this snug haven!
Madam Son Restaurant
Restaurant Madam Son is proud to present an array of tantalizing gastronomic delights on its rear terrace with panoramic views of the gleaming swimming pools. I liked how they incorporated the famous lanterns within the decor as an acknowledgement of Hoi An Ancient Town, famous for lanterns. The food on offer was a fusion of Western food meets Eastern cuisines.
We indulged in an entree of wonderful tartare beef and a spicey pumpkin soup which was delicious.
Entree and Main Dishes
The irresistible blend of Australian beef and pasta is an unusual combination but my teenage daughter was a big fan of it. I opted for a crab dish with pasta which was sweet and very refreshing, once again my daughter loved the tangy taste of the pasta. The spicey pumpkin soup was wonderful as an entree. One can never go wrong with steak tartare very refreshing indeed for tropical living.
Below is a dessert dish an edible part of the lotus plant is the root, seeds, and young flower stalks. The lotus seeds can be eaten raw as they are sweet. When the seeds become brown, they can be made into a paste or ground into flour for baking. This is a must-try as it is very different from what I have tasted in Asia. The lotus seed sweet soup with longan (Che hat sen long nhan) is a delicious Vietnamese summer dessert. This pleasant aroma and sweetness, create a relaxing effect, perfect for hot summer nights. This was combined with beautifully presented meringue and fresh strawberries a nice balance.
One can never go wrong when having teenage girls who adore everything with a tang flavour and a very, fluffy crepe.
While eating breakfast we opted to sit outside to hear the sound of the lapping waves and to look out at the reflection of the sun on the water. For many people, a hearty breakfast is a perfect prelude to a productive day. Whether you opt for pancakes or oatmeal, this meal is an essential component of starting off each morning. This is a great time to start the day with an opportunity for family bonding!
My teenage daughters loved the option of sweets and ice- cream for breakfast. But for me, breakfast without local fresh juices is like a day without sunshine. I love mango juice and there was plenty of it. There were plenty of local Vietnamese dishes to choose from too. If it’s not pho soup, it’s not breakfast.
Delux Ocean View Room
I stayed with my family of four in the Deluxe Ocean View room with 2 twins view with a balcony overlooking the luxurious gardens. The Delux Ocean guest room 1 king had a direct view overlooking the swimming pools and the sound of the roaring ocean, which was very therapeutic. I was greeted by some wonderful French treats as a welcome to my stay. This attention to detail makes a five-star hotel all that more worth coming to.
The opulent abode boasts captivating features such as expansive panes of glass, arched entrances, and an abundance of natural materials comprising stone and timber. The 54sqm/581sqft room had a living and sitting room with an outdoor space to soak up and listen to the ocean. The wooden panelled doors at the entrance when walking to the room were lovely, this is a very loveable room due to its wooden French and Indonesian decor. I love the feel of traditional wood flooring when taking steps with my bare feet.
I am always a fan of a dedicated working desk and fresh sunflowers for me to work next to.
Nothing is more endearing than soaking in a huge tub overlooking nature. The marble bathroom with a separate bathtub and shower was lovely to use. Vietnam has its own local marble.
The Da Nang Marriott Beach Resort & Spa tranquil atmosphere immediately invited us as a family into the welcoming reception area, bathed in sunlight and sprinkled with rows upon rows of windows affording glimpses of its verdant grounds adorned with abundant greenery.
The serenely harmonious gardens meld seamlessly with the contemporary independent suites nestled amongst them. As a guest, the gardens intensify my sense of timeless tranquillity. Take the time to walk on the grass, it is so soft and soothing to one’s feet. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
