Whether you want to spend your honeymoon in Vietnam exploring cities full of character, immersing yourself in local culture and traditions, hiking through tropical jungles to the sounds of native birds or simply lying on a beach and listening to the waves- or all of the above- Vietnam has it all.
Make the most of your Vietnam honeymoon by visiting ornate temples, browsing the bustling markets, tasting the delicious street food and taking part in the impossibly romantic full moon festivals, when cities are lit with candlelight and moonbeams, and paper lanterns, said to bring good luck, are floated on rivers- a breathtaking sight.
Out on the water, enjoy a private and secluded boat trip around Vietnam’s tranquil bays and islands, and visit the floating villages of the Mekong Delta. Don’t miss a luxury boat trip on Halong Bay- the ultimate honeymoon experience and the best way to see the dramatic cliffs and pristine waters. If it’s beachfront relaxation that you’re after, take your pick of Vietnam’s many beautiful beaches and you’ll be guaranteed an idyllic honeymoon spot, such as the beach havens of Phu Quoc and Ninh Van Bay. Take advantage of fine white sand and tempting aquamarine waters- swim, snorkel or dive, or simply relax on the beach in your very own paradise.
If you’d like to combine city and beach on your honeymoon, we highly recommend a visit to Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) followed by a few days on one of Vietnam’s enchanting islands- how about Con Dao, with its pretty beaches and stunning coral reefs? A perfect spot for a luxury Vietnam honeymoon, enjoy your own private villa (complete with a private infinity pool) at Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, where you can indulge in couples’ spa treatments and watch the sun set while sipping a glass of champagne.
For the best of all worlds, how about a cherry-picked tour of the country’s highlights? Explore colonial Hanoi, the historic port of Hoi An and old imperial capital Hue, and why not combine these bustling cities and villages full of local character with the beautiful valley of Mai Chau, a tranquil cruise on Halong Bay and some of Vietnam’s most perfect beaches, such as Phan Thiet? On this diverse honeymoon in Vietnam, you can pack all this in, and even have time for a thrilling Vespa tour of Hi Chi Minh City.
Fusion Maia Da Nang This luxurious five-star spa resort is the perfect place to relax and pamper yourself. Sprawled between Hoi An and Da Nang, with over 30 km of beach, you can’t fail to find an idyllic spot- that’s if you can drag yourself away from the private pool and courtyard in your villa...
Amanoi These stately villas offer luxurious solitude in the beautiful setting of Vinh Hy Bay, on the coastline of the stunning Nui Chua National Park. Enjoy panoramic views over the mountains, lake and East Sea, and take a dip in your very own infinity pool or discover hidden coves on a kayak.
Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai These stylish villas just outside the equally beautiful Hoi An have spacious indoor and outdoor areas set in elegant private gardens, some with their own pools. Tuck into fresh seafood while enjoying the views over the Cham Islands, and pamper yourself in the spa.
Halong Violet For a unique experience, board the luxurious Halong Violet for a cruise around spectacular Halong Bay. This floating hotel is a beautifully restored traditional junk boat and oozes romance, from the king-sized four poster beds to the marble bathrooms and private balconies- and you even get your own personal butler.
