Admirers of gold will find themselves captivated by the distinctively luxurious decoration from the moment they enter the premises of Wyndham Danang Golden Bay, Vietnam. Curious about the extent of this theme, I ventured to inspect the public restrooms, which served as a preview of the gold-infused extravagance throughout the hotel.
Infinity Gold 24crt Swimming Pool
The distinguishing feature of Wyndham Danang Golden Bay hotel, setting it apart from any other hotel I’ve encountered through the years, is its expansive gold-tiled swimming pool—a sight unlike any other. The radiant gold tiles offer a mesmerizing experience, epitomizing what I believe hotels should provide: unparalleled and unique encounters.
For fitness enthusiasts in search of a lap pool that feels almost boundless, this is the perfect spot. The panorama of Da Nang, including the iconic bridge, transforms beautifully under the sunlight, with the gleaming river and mountains adding to the spectacle. Swimming here, with the river view merging seamlessly with the pool’s edge, creates the illusion of an infinite expanse.
F29 Restaurant Golden Pool Bar
Make sure to cap off your day with a stylish plunge at the Golden Pool Bar on Floor 29. Here, you’re greeted with a selection of tempting treats right next to the 29th-floor pool. Immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere as you relax with one of their exquisite cocktails, and let your spirits lift as you take in the panoramic views from above, all while enjoying the fresh breeze.
The snack portions are generous, and I particularly enjoyed feasting on the Korean fried chicken while sipping a local beer.
It’s a wonderful spot for a marriage proposal. I observed an impressive balloon setup asking, “Will you marry me?” One can only hope the answer was a resounding yes.
The Horizon Restaurant
The Horizon Restaurant, perched on the hill’s crest with views of Da Nang Bay and its ethereal, mist-covered peaks, is celebrated for its international buffet breakfasts, as well as lunches and dinners featuring set menus of high-quality cuisine. It was a delight to start the day gazing over the scenic bay while enjoying exquisite meals crafted by expert chefs, offering a taste of harmony! The variety of food is boundless, including a selection of Korean favorites.
Due to an early flight, we found ourselves at breakfast by 6 am, greeted by a surprisingly large number of guests—Korean visitors are known for their early dining preferences. Breakfast runs from 6 am to 10 am and, despite the rush, the staff’s attentiveness and efficiency in serving us were remarkable.
Jjimjilbang Korean Wellness And Spa
What exactly is a Jjimjilbang at the Golden Luxury Spa? Having never explored a Korean spa and wellness centre, my family and I were curious and dedicated a few hours to discover what it offers. It quickly became one of my top spa and wellness retreats. The concept has completely captivated me and my teenage daughters.
The facility includes separate changing rooms for women and men, each with its own jacuzzi, which my daughters and I greatly appreciated for its privacy and comfort.
You don’t need to bring anything but yourself; everything you need is provided and explained. Unlike traditional Korean practices where nudity might be common, Wyndham Danang Golden Bay maintains a policy of modesty.
The Jjimjilbang experience encompasses several rooms designed for both hot and cold therapies. These range from an Igloo ice room with temperatures dropping to minus 7 degrees Celsius, to a volcanic rock room heated to a staggering 57 degrees Celsius, where guests lie on countless tiny volcanic balls.
It’s important to walk on designated paths to avoid slipping—a lesson we learned the fun way! The experience was not only enjoyable but also provided instant relief to sore muscles. For those interested in skincare or male grooming, the infrared cave is a standout, even helping clear my daughter’s acne significantly.
The golden sauna room invites you to recline and immerse yourself in the intense warmth of 47 degrees Celsius. In all these therapy rooms, guests are provided with a towel and a special outfit at reception for lying down comfortably. While there is a communal area for interacting with family and friends, the emphasis on wellness encourages a quiet atmosphere at all times, enhancing the serene experience.
Allocate ample time to fully enjoy this exceptional facility, a unique experience for those of us from the Western world.
Corner Suite Bay View
The two-bedroom suite was the key to our family’s relaxing vacation. Currently, hotels serve as my home, and this suite met every need for my family of four, offering us comfortable accommodation. It featured a spacious living/dining area with a stunning view of the bay, perfect for mornings when I needed to work early. The kitchenette proved invaluable for room service and storing snacks for my children, allowing us to eat without cluttering the space.
The inclusion of laundry facilities was a significant perk, given how quickly laundry accumulates in a family. For those planning an extended stay in Da Nang, this 72m2 suite is perfectly suited for both business and leisure travelers. Additionally, the view of Wonder Park, a miniature European landmark, provided great entertainment for the kids and added enjoyment to our stay.
Bathroom Bay View
The suite featured two bathrooms, which proved to be incredibly convenient for my two teenage daughters. I appreciated the thoughtful placement of the first bathroom, discreetly located at the start of the corridor, allowing me to use it without disturbing anyone.
Entering the bathroom, I was delighted by the luxuriously spacious bathtub, complemented by a panoramic view of the bay. This setting created the perfect sanctuary for relaxation after exploring the distinctive offerings of the establishment. Even taking a shower in this space was a delightful experience.
Having scrutinized countless hotels over the years, my quest now centres on finding accommodations that not only cater to family enjoyment but also deliver exclusive experiences not found elsewhere. Among the myriad offerings, Wyndham Da Nang Golden Bay stands out with two remarkable landmarks that left an indelible impression on my family.
Firstly, the 24-carat tiled infinity rooftop swimming pool is an absolute gem, offering unparalleled fun for guests of all ages. The breathtaking vistas and exhilarating atmosphere make it a highlight of any stay, providing a memorable backdrop for family bonding and relaxation.
Equally captivating is the exceptional Jjimijilbang spa and wellness facility. Here, my family and I were treated to an unforgettable experience, indulging in a range of rejuvenating treatments and immersive therapies. From soothing massages to invigorating sauna sessions, every moment was infused with a sense of tranquillity and well-being, leaving us thoroughly refreshed and rejuvenated.
Overall, our stay at Wyndham Da Nang Golden Bay was nothing short of exceptional. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the staff for their outstanding hospitality and for curating such unforgettable experiences for families like ours.
