City Getaway for Wellness
Wellness is a way of life in Vietnam. If you’re seeking to reconnect, re-balance, and restore during your holidays, you’ve come to the right place.
Take your pick of tranquil wellness resorts in Da Nang and Nha Trang, step into a few yoga or meditation classes in Hoi An, or do a full detox at a mountain retreat in Da Lat. Even in Vietnam’s most energetic cities, countless day spas offer professional massages and therapies at surprisingly reasonable rates. Healthy eating is pure pleasure in Vietnam. Here, ingredients are pulled fresh from the land and sea, and prepared in exquisite, nourishing meals. For a deeper journey into mindfulness, the ancient city of Hue beckons with Zen houses, peaceful pagodas, and uninterrupted serenity.
In this blog, Ziva suggests a beautiful destination for your upcoming wellness trip: Nha Trang. Nha Trang is known for its peaceful atmosphere and beautiful landscapes, but travelers may be surprised to find this coastal area also has an abundance of natural healing resources. Some of Vietnam’s top spa resorts have taken up shores around the city, and in recent years, Nha Trang has become a legitimate destination for wellness.
Best for relaxing with family and friends: I-Resort Mud Baths
Nha Trang’s natural mud and hot springs are believed to offer therapeutic benefits for skin as well as other health benefits. Just a short drive from the city, I-Resort Nha Trang is a popular place for travellers to have their first mudbath experience. The baths usually last 20 minutes at a time. The mud is warm and liquid, and perfect for soothing sunburn and rejuvenating the skin. After showering, relax by the mineral waterfall or sprawl out on a lounger by the turquoise swimming pools. The resort has separate changing areas, spa services, a restaurant and private rooms that couples or groups can rent for a full day of relaxation.
Best for personalised wellness programs: Six Senses Ninh Van Bay
Hidden on a peninsula north of Nha Trang, Six Senses Ninh Van Bay is reached via a 20-minute speedboat ride from the city. Six Senses’ award-winning spa is the heart of the resort facilities, and offers a comprehensive range of treatments from massages and scrubs to traditional healing modalities such as cupping and acupuncture. Embracing the wellness trend, Six Senses has an Integrative Wellness program combining the principles of Eastern healing with results-oriented Western medicine. An in-house wellness expert is also on hand to give lifestyle and nutritional advice, and design personalized programs of spa, fitness and wellness activities.
Best for beautiful beach scenery: Gran Meliá Nha Trang
