Gran Meliá has debuted along Vietnam’s pristine coastline, bringing Mediterranean luxury to the oceanfront destination of Nha Trang. Located in a private bay framed by the region’s Fairy Mountain and endless turquoise ocean, Gran Meliá Nha Trang is an upscale sanctuary inspired by the local landscape.
94 contemporary villas follow a sleek and minimalist style with interiors dressed in luxury European brands and nods to the surrounding environment; the Ocean Front Villa’s dining room walls are adorned with a mosaic of dark sea blue stones to mimic the undulating waves of the ocean. The resort’s largest accommodation, the Grand Ocean Villa, is 686 square meters, featuring four bedrooms, lofty ceilings, stylish decor, and unobstructed sea views.
The hotel houses Asia’s first outpost of award-winning Hispania, the highly acclaimed Spanish restaurant, which is found at the property’s culinary heart. The property features four other dining destinations that serve up global flavours from Japan to the Mediterranean.
Inspired by the vibrancy and freshness of Vietnamese cuisine, Natura highlights the bounty of the natural world through a blend of local specialties and Mediterranean dishes. The contemporary menu focuses on the freshest seasonal cuisine, with locally sourced ingredients from farmers and fishermen.
The chic lobby bar Theia is named after the Greek goddess of sight and light. Centred around the bright blue sky, the bar embraces her essence with an abundance of natural light and ocean views through floor-to-ceiling windows. At night the space transforms into a high-class drinking spot as guests are invited to sip drinks from a curated list while sampling caviar and oysters. Whilst in the hotel’s grounds, the laid-back Sal pool bar offers refreshing cocktails and light bites with a tropical breeze, designed so guests can while away the day with access to delicious drinks and cuisine.
Wellness offerings at the resort include the Song Spa, which features four treatment rooms and a curated spa menu that promise to provide purification, cleansing and renewal; signature treatments include shiatsu, a Japanese-style massage. There is also an infinity pool, Pilates, yoga, and gym studio which overlooks the sea in addition to in-villa wellness experiences available to guests.
