Spa & Foodie Retreat, Hoi An Vietnam

Go back in time when you journey to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Hoi An on Vietnam's central coast. This charming little village weaves along the canals and reflects a time of old. At every turn be delighted by traditional architecture from around Asia to reflect it's history as a bustling port town. The car free streets are lit with lanterns and it buzzes with the atmosphere of markets, restaurants, bars and tailors. Take advantage of the Free bike hire to explore your surrounds like a local.

Your visit coincides with the Hoi An lantern festival, this lively gathering of locals is an age old tradition where they honour their ancestors by releasing lanterns on the river, laying flowers & offering performances. Another spectacle is the burning of fake money to bring good luck and prosperity! On the evening of the full moon we dine on the river and soak up the atmosphere.

Learn to cook authentic Vietnamese cuisine at the world renowned Ms Vy's Cooking Class, we'll take a boat trip to the colourful central market where we'll watch and be involved in many cooking demonstrations followed by a 2 hour cooking class and lunch.

Visit An Bang beach, one of Asia's most beautiful beaches as voted by Trip Advisor just 3km away. 4 Daily shuttles from the resort make this an easy trip.

Rejuvenate and unwind in the heart of beautiful Hoi An at the award winning Almanity Resort & Spa. Every day you will go on one of their signature 'Spa Journeys' and enjoy treatments that take inspiration from Vietnamese fables and make use of traditional herbs, oils and massage techniques.

    Emily Spurling

    Emily is an eternal student of yoga globally and is formally trained in Hatha and Vinyasa flow, she has beautifully combined these styles to create her own much loved yoga experience. This 'fusion' style is the perfect blend of light and shade, one flow will have you generating heat and building lean muscle and the next you will be blissing out in a slow, opening restorative sequence.

    “I love watching the profound effect yoga has on my students, a transformation takes place from the moment they step on to the mat to when their eyes open after Savasana. Yoga has been invaluable in my life as a mum of two young children and also in my previous corporate job. Whatever your situation, yoga can help you navigate the roller coaster that is life. It is my pleasure to share this gift with you.”
