4 night stay in a pool villa at the Four Seasons Nam Hai, Hoi An Vietnam

Stay in the lap of luxury in this one bedroom, 2700 sq foot pool villa at The Nam Hai, located directly on the ocean, steps from the sea. The design pays homage to authentic Central Vietnamese garden homes (or “nha vuon”), with large timber frames, decorative panels inside that rise to a pitched roof lined with flat tiles, and a multi-functional central sleeping platform with gossamer nets that create a lantern-like effect.

Chris Shepherd can personally vouch for this place. He spent three nights here in 2015, and there’s a very good chance you’ll be bidding against him on this one.
