3 luxury resorts in Vietnam where nothing is a problem (even being a vegan)


Check in to one of these 3 luxury resorts in Vietnam where nothing is a problem (even being vegan) and your request for something a little different, will be met with with total understanding. Instead of feeling like a ‘problem guest’ you’ll get to eat some of the finest Vietnamese food you’ll ever taste, as well as being treated to Western style fine dining that will leave you very happy indeed. It seems that even vegans can do luxury travel now…

The Nam Hai

Situated in Central Vietnam, near the ancient town of Hoi An, The Nam Hai has been winning awards since it opened in 2006, and deservedly so.

Nam Hai - Pool

This stylish resort has all the luxury bases covered; slick modern villas with personal butler service, a well manicured property with infinity pools and a full range of facilities and activities.

Nam Hai - Villa

Vegan dishes to try here include plant-based versions of speciality local foods like ‘Cao Lao’, a warm noodle salad and ‘Pho’, Vietnam’s famous herb-laden rice noodle soup.

Don’t miss out on a vegan luxury breakfast with champagne cocktails, homemade granola and fresh tropical fruits.

The beautiful spa offers treatments using vegan certified products, a rarity in the luxury resort industry so it’s well worth a visit during your stay.

An Lam Villas – Ninh Van Bay

Located in Ninh Van Bay, near Nha Trang, An Lam Villas can only be reached by private boat and offers a chance to escape it all in a romantic and luxurious setting.

An Lam - View

The collection of villas are all designed in harmony with the natural and rugged surroundings, and offer the choice of staying on the beach front, facing the lagoon or being hidden away in the tree tops.

An Lam - Villa

Enjoy exceptionally delicious vegan fine dining where Asian flavours are fused with more traditional Western styles to create dishes like a mouthwatering ‘Pickled Beetroot Salad’ served with a beetroot syrup infused with star anise.

An Lam - Beetroot

Other options include this mushroom and tofu dish, packed full of goodness and served in a light and flavoursome broth; no one will complain about tofu being tasteless ever again after eating it here.

Six Senses Ninh Van Bay

A superb resort set in a stunning location, surrounded by nature and awe inspiring views, awaits you at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay.

Six Senses - View

First class service and a choice of villas that all have that perfect sense of ‘being at one with nature’, ensure that your time here will be memorable.

Six Senses Ninh Van Bay have perfected the art catering for people who want to stay in one the best luxury resorts in Vietnam, but who don’t want their experience to be limited by their dietary requirements.

Six Senses - Arrancini

A well informed and knowledgable staff team are always on hand to guide guests through the wide range of dishes available, so you can relax in the knowledge that your special requests are not a problem here.

Six Senses - Tofu

Of course, you don’t have to be a vegan, or have any special dietary requirements to enjoy a stay at these resorts. But if you do, then rest assured they are more than capable of offering you the same level of luxury as every other guest.

    Fantastic read! The pictures are great and certainly make me want to explore Vietnam and stay at this hotel. The food looks delicious, thanks to Paul Eyers for the insight into his travels

    It certainly is great to know that these luxury resorts are more than happy to cater for vegan guests!

  4. Paul Eyers says:

    You should certainly visit Vietnam Laura, it is a wonderful location, the food is amazing and these resorts were the icing on a very big vegan cake:)

  5. Merja says:

    Thank you for the tips as it’s often really difficult to get vegan food in many Asian countries! My first trip to Vietnam will take place this winter. Any vegan tips for Ho Chi Minh City?

  6. Paul says:

    Very well written and interested article thanks. Visit Central Vietnam from Feb to June for just about perfect weather.

  7. Delia says:

    Yes, I have to agree with all of these. Six Senses also have a great resort on Con Dao, which feels like a private island and would cater to vegans just as well I’m sure!

  8. Long says:

    To Merja,

    In HCM there are many great places for vegan. I like Hum which is of zen atmosphere. This makes my life slow down with great food, but my wife does not like ít because of slow cooking. She adores Hoa Dang which is very goos food too.

    There are some more schools of vegan which their phylosophy goes on food. Come and experience


  9. Paul Eyers says:

    @Merja Thank you for your comment, Vietnam was truly wonderful and we managed to find great vegan food everywhere we went. Please feel free to get in touch through our Vegan Food Quest website or Twitter and we would be more than happy to share some tips and suggestions with you! Where do you plan to go when you are in Vietnam?

  10. Paul Eyers says:

    @Paul – thanks for your comment, nice to get positive feedback on our first post for Luxury Travel Blog ! We were so lucky as we had perfect weather even in September apart from 2/3 days in the whole month.

    Do you visit Vietnam regularly?

    What is your favourite location?

  11. Paul Eyers says:

    @Delia – Six Senses have a great philosophy and are all about sustainable cuisine even when not vegan. We have just visited Six Senses Yao Noi also which was stunning (reviews and blog ports to come soon!). We hope to visit Six Senses Con Dao when next in Vietnam, friends and also colleagues have been and speak very highly of it.

    Anywhere else you would recommend in South East Asia?

  12. Paul Eyers says:

    @ Long – Zen sounds good we will have to visit next time! We may get in touch for some local vegan info if you don’t mind?

  13. Cool! Thanks! The Nam Hai is absolutely one of my favorite resorts in Vietnam! Especially the long Olympic pool is amazing!

  14. Paul Eyers says:

    @Myrthe – it truly is a special place and you’re right, that pool is amazing! You say it is one of your fav locations in Vietnam, may I ask what are your others??

  15. Dale says:

    Fantastic to see that vegan options are there to be found in Vietnam. More fantastic finds by the Vegan Food Quest team :)

  16. Long says:

    @Paul- yes I am happy to share my local expertise. Feel free to get in touch with me, by message or a coffee by some table in Saigon ;-)

  17. Paul Eyers says:

    @ Dale – thanks for your comment! we loved Vietnam and will certainly return but not before Vegan Food Quest visits Thailand/Malaysia/Singapore/Sri Lanka/Maldives/Laos/Cambodia on the hunt for more delicious vegan food!

  18. Paul Eyers says:

    @ Long – we would love to join you for coffee and a chat when we return to Vietnam :)

    I have been to all the properties and I hated it.
    Sorry but Vietnam is just not a destination for luxury travelling.

    It all starts with the weather: don’t come in sept/oct/nov/dec/jan/fev/march.
    Storms are frequent – on the pictures you can see how palm trees are damaged by the wind and storms of the Chinese Sea. No, one can not bath here, it’s just marketing.

    And then: supporting dictatorship by travelling? Who would do this?
