Top 10 Luxury Beach Hotels for Less
Lifestyle Resort Danang, Vietnam
One of the newest properties on Vietnam’s prized central coast, the 186-room Lifestyle Resort Danang opened in March 2010, and boasts nearly 2.5 miles of unspoiled sand on Bac My An beach – not to mention a swimming pool with bar and full-service restaurant and lounge overlooking the South China Sea. Accommodations run the gamut from petite rooms with two twin-sized beds to private, two-bedroom villas; all come stocked with bathrobes and slippers, in-room minibars, and private balconies. On property, guests can choose from a hearty roster of activities like biking along Da Nang’s nearly 20 miles of coastline, playing tennis on one of two courts, and kayaking the sea’s challenging, wavy waters. The luxury beach hotel is close enough to the ancient town of Hoi An (about 20 miles away) for guests to spend the day exploring the UNESCO World Heritage village with its crumbling bridges, historic homes, and vibrant infusion of French culture, and be back at the resort in time for an evening dip and dinner. Summer room rates start from $200/night.
