A 15 minute drive from the UNESCO world heritage town of Hoi An, this premium resort boasts a selection of deluxe villas, many with private pools, gourmet restaurants, a beach bar, a health club, a spa, and three infinity pools, all within 86 acres of manicured tropical gardens, fringed by the East Sea. Sophisticated and indulgent, Four Seasons Hoi An offers travellers a relaxing, upmarket oasis at the top end of the budget spectrum.
Open for breakfast and dinner, Café Nam Hi offers both buffet and a la carte dining, with a focus on international cuisine and Indian specialities. La Sen offers lunch and dinner with a Vietnamese and international menu. Note that a smart-casual dress code applies for both restaurants, and also for the resort’s chic cocktail bar, a popular venue for sundowners. There is also a relaxed beach bar with day beds, serving snacks and drinks, along with poolside service. Romantic private beach barbeques and private in-villa dining can be arranged.
At the heart of the resort are three stunning infinity pools. In addition to the substantial, 30m heated family pool, there is a 44m long lap pool and a vast Olympic size pool, both accessible to guests over 16 years of age. Additional sports facilities include four tennis courts, one badminton and one basketball court, with all equipment provided. Pool, table tennis, and table football are on offer at the Young Adults Club. Sailing and kayaking is available for water enthusiasts, and complimentary bicycles are ideal for exploring the extensive grounds or further afield. Enjoy a work out in the health club, with its extensive range of weight training and cardio machines, sauna, and steam room. Or simply relax on the beach, or indulge in a massage or beauty treatment at the tranquil spa, overlooking a lotus pond.
A range of accommodation includes spacious, beautifully appointed one bed villas, each accommodating three guests, with king or twin beds on a central raised sleeping area surrounded by drapes, plus an additional sofa bed. Offering tranquil garden or ocean views, each villa has a private garden with a lovely outdoor rainfall shower, a generous, contemporary bathroom and comfortable daybeds on a private terrace.

Families are warmly welcome, and each young guest receives a welcome pack on arrival. Two bedroom, two bathroom designated family villas each accommodate up to five guests. The resort operates a complimentary kids club, and a babysitting service can be arranged. Children’s menus are available in the restaurants. Cots, highchairs, pushchairs, and feeding equipment can be supplied subject to request, along with inflatable pool toys and pool fencing.
The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.
Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)
Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

Driver-guide: Very punctual, except for pick up for airport when he was delayed by >30 mins due to road closures. Vehicle very clean and well maintained- plenty of water and supplies of clothing for religious sites, tissues, postcards etc. Very good at understanding what level of conversation we wanted. Happy to stop for paracetamol, supermarket etc. Took us to signal box at railway since we were early (which was very interesting)
The Walawwa: Lovely place to arrive at and get a bit of rest. Great pool, lovely rooms and food etc. Peaceful oasis so close to town.
Wilpattu Camp: Wonderful food- really enjoyed trying lots of new things in excellent surroundings.Felt like the place had not been visited much recently (which I don’t think it had due to the terrorist attacks) so our safari guide had been brought up from another park and did not know the park too well- it worked out well though and we saw all the animals we hoped to see so no complaints on that front. We did feel that we should have been told about extra things we could have done- when we commented on the great food on final day we were told that they could have done a cookery demo for us, but it was too late at that point. It worked well for us but clients should probably know that they are likely to have multiple wildlife in their tents (eg frogs)- didn’t bother us at all, but others it might do. We were given a questionnaire to fill in at the end whilst all the staff were standing around, which wasn’t ideal as you felt a bit of pressure! Felt really well looked after here!
Water Gardens Sigiriya: Beautiful suites with plunge pools- quiet and peaceful with lovely big swimming pool. Food good
Jungle Beach: Beautiful location on beach. Rooms good. Food a bit limited I would have liked a bit more variety ideally.
Camellia House: Lovely location- beautiful views. Food OK but service below average- our food orders were wrong a couple of times and even pre-ordered food was delayed. Tea factory tour was only an hour and that was the main reason to be here. It was interesting but quite brief seeing it was the main attraction according to our itinerary. Also, we were taken there in a minibus which didn’t have seatbelts on all seats and was quite smelly- not up to the standard of the usual transportation. Rooms were described as having panoramic views- one did have amazing views but the other one definitely didn’t.
Galle Face: Lovely old hotel- but it did have some problems (leaking ceiling and ‘smuts’ coming out of air conditioning.) Weather very bad (spectacular storms). It was a shame the street food tour couldn’t take place but totally understandable given the weather, however we enjoyed our dinner here and free drinks/canopes!). Good choice at breakfast.
Pippa R reviewing Sri Lanka Highlights - Classic on 30 September 2019
Once again you organised a really good holiday for us.
If there was one criticism it was that there were too many flights. I don’t know whether you could do Bangkok first, Chiang Mai, then fly down South?
Your drivers and Guides - all really good. The variety of transport on the tours in Bangkok and Chiang Mai; we all loved.
Tamarind Village - Our room was a bit of a squeeze, with the 3 of us and 3 big suitcases.
Lisu Lodge- I enjoyed our time here. Going forward I would suggest only 1 night or they need to have some more activities. I liked how we ate on the floor, the food was really good. Staff very friendly. We liked the cycling, tea plantation, trekking and white water rafting.
Riva Surya- good location.
Elephant Hills- we loved looking after the elephants, the lake was also a really good experience. The guides were informative and looked after us well. The resort locations and tents were perfect.
Santiburi - amazing; we upgraded to a beach bungalow which was fantastic. The hotel is in a stunning location, the facilities and the service was impeccable. Sam has some private Thai boxing lessons, which he loved. We had cookery lessons and used the paddle boards. A perfect end to quite a busy holiday.
