Vinh Hung Resort****

Our brief comments:
The flagship of the four Vinh Hung hotels in Hoi An, the resort is located on an islet in the river. In general, its an up-market international resort, but is let down by a few indifferent features.

The 82 rooms are in separate 8-unit blocks in a well designed tropical garden - 64 Superior and 16 Deluxe. They're a good size and well appointed, but the shiny ceramic floor tiles, heavy dark wood furniture and fussy drapes make the rooms feel austere instead of comfortable. Four Japanese style rooms are available for a modest surcharge.

The lobby is another weak point. It also suffers from shiny tile floors with dark wood, and is generally undistinguished. Around the corner, there is a row of computers and tour board on the wall - more akin to a backpacker cafe than a four star resort hotel.

To compensate, the free-form pool is good, and has a real pool bar where you can sit on your stool in the water to sip your margarita. Nearby, there's a small fitness centre with a few exercise machines.

The restaurant is another plus. Overlooking the river and pool, it's light and airy with good table linen and furniture. However, meals and drinks prices are high for the quality level.

The Vinh Hung is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Ancient Town. If you're not too bothered by a few tacky features, it's worth considering.
