I am at my final two days stay in Vietnam and its 5:30 am, and here I am observing a stunning sunrise, thanks to Fusion Maia in Danang. Situated right on the beach is a luxury spa hotel which was mindfully created with inspired healing therapies. The holistic therapies fuse Reiki energy healing with traditional therapeutic treatments. Fusion Maia has a seven-day programme in which I could choose any treatments I liked at any time with either a male or female therapist. All Spa treatments are included in the price of your stay no matter how long your stay is.
Fusion Maia’s ultimate inspirational, wellness inclusive lifestyle services are a unique holiday experience. With the individualised care, I could immerse myself in thoughtfully created wellness experiences and let layers of tension and stress slip away. I had eight treatments and they were brilliant, but I will tell more about that in a separate review of the Spa Services. In this review, I will focus on the resort and its non-spa facilities.
The entrance to the Fusion Maia was already a statement itself, driving through a narrow road leading me through a tropical jungle tunnel which was a clear indication that nature comes first here. The reception was a simple open area where I was quickly checked in and where the staff prepared me for my next few days of pampering and being served.
The staff were well trained and understood how to work with me during my stay. No matter where I was in the hotel, the staff always made me feel welcome. They took the time to talk to me, which was a nice personal touch. The Fusion Maia team really prides itself as a unit of consistent serving, working as a whole team to simply serve me. Their relaxed approach to catering for guests is why my stay was a very memorable one.
Breakfast can be eaten anytime and anywhere, which I thought was a fabulous idea, especially if you have children that wake up at different times and have their own needs. It really took a lot of early morning pressures away.
Breakfast was well thought out here, regarding nutritional options to cater for all international guests. The food ranged from dishes inspired by Japan, Vietnam, Spain, Korea and I could even order an Australian steak.
There were so many unique and interesting dishes to choose by and pastries too. I could also choose from a fabulous set menu which had some unique, delicious inspiring food. One of my favourite was the tropical sunshine smoothie bowl, it is a must try. If you are staying here for seven days, the food choice is endless.
The beverages and juices here were fantastic too. There were so many interesting combinations of healthy detoxing drinks it was a fabulous experience. The coffee, was made to perfection as well. There is an additional buffet option which is open from the early morning till 10:30am, but you can order your extra breakfast dishes anytime of the day and you can ask for it to be served wherever you like, at your private pool or even on the beach.
If there is a description regarding heaven on earth, well the swimming pool was the place for it. The infinity pool was brilliantly placed to be able to overlook the South China Sea at any time of the day. Even in the evening, this pool was magical. The seating options were endless and for those who want a more private swim. There is another pool at the Spa area which is only for adults and was tucked away in a secluded tropical garden.
What I was amazed about when I sat here during the evening, there were no mosquitoes. It was truly wonderful to sit here at Fusion Maia late at night and listen to the calm sea.
Pool Villa One Bedroom
I stayed at a villa which had its own private pool. This indoor 55m2 and outdoor 33m2 villa was a fabulous hideaway. With all spa treatments included and breakfast anytime, anyplace this was so relaxing.
I also had my own coffee machine, which is not common in Vietnam hotels. One of my favourite parts of the villa was the see-through glass that overlooked the pool from the bathroom. The bathroom was big and I loved the granite throughout the bathroom. The gold double sink was gorgeous to use and the fluffy large towels were pure luxury. Regarding my sleep, the double bed was big and including my massive pillows, I rested very well here. There was also plenty of charging stations here for me to work and soak up this private villa, there was a good working space within this villa.
The outdoor area had plenty of places to rest including a sofa lounge and was surrounded by a tropical garden. My children at night would with a torch explore the little creatures lurking around with us. They loved swimming naked in the pool as no one else could see them. The outdoor sofa overlooking the pool with this space was brilliant and it made my stay very relaxing.
For two hours per day, there is an option where the children can experience their own luxury stay. They can have treatments such as a manicure, pedicure, getting their hair done or creative arts. The children can also have a private cinema experience with fresh popcorn and local fruits. They can watch their own private movie in a very loud cinema. My children could not wait for the children’s club experience every day.
Fusion Maia has an excellent reputation throughout Vietnam, Korea, and Japan. It is why during my stay I spoke to many Asian guests who return here year after year. The surroundings are very clean, and the private access to the beach which is not saturated with people is becoming increasingly rare to find these days. Fusion Maia is a life-changing experience for those seeking a spiritual journey. The food, the accommodation, the spa and the staff is why this has to be one of my top five stays in Asia so far. Danang International airport is only a 20-minute drive, so after a long flight, this is true bliss. Until we meet again, thank you for pampering me and my family.
