Melia Ho Tram

Overview:
Dive into five-star seaside bliss at the Meliá Ho Tram Beach Resort, set along the soft white sands and unspoiled waters of Ho Tram, just a two-hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City.

Whether you’re honeymooning in Vietnam or just looking for a relaxing beach holiday after a busy HCMC adventure, this is the ideal place to unwind and reconnect with your partner. The resort’s unique blend of Vietnamese and Mediterranean architecture, combined with breathtaking East Sea views and Med-inspired dining options, creates a serene and romantic atmosphere.

The location:
The sun-kissed beach town of Ho Tram is around 120 km southeast of Vietnam’s buzzing Ho Chi Minh City. Although known locally for its balmy climate, walkable beachfront, and nearby hot springs, this slice of coastal serenity is still largely undiscovered by tourists. Set on 1.1 kilometres of prime beachfront, the Meliá Ho Tram Beach Resort is a tropical haven for couples visiting southern Vietnam.

Best room for two:
Choose from 152 well-appointed rooms and 83 glorious villas with private pools, each offering a contemporary-coastal style with prime sea or lake/garden views. Couples will love Meliá’s premium The Level experience (we did!). Choosing a Level Villa unlocks exclusive access to the lounge and The Level pool plus plenty of extra perks. We’re talking afternoon cocktails, tea, coffee, and snacks, detailed personalised service that caters to your every whim, a pillow menu, complimentary access to the spa steam rooms and sauna, and more. Such a treat for a romantic escape.

Food & Drink:
The Meliá Ho Tram Beach Resort has plenty of gastronomic delights to discover.

Elyxr is a cosy hideaway with modern touches in the Main Lobby, perfect for relaxing with a drink and something sweet. For something more substantial, head to Sasa for all-day dining. You’ll find traditional and modern Southern Asian and Mediterranean dishes and a divine breakfast buffet. Lunch and dinner options provide à la carte selections from handrolls to yakitori and plenty more, all with the bright flavours of Vietnamese cuisine.

Enjoying fresh seafood is a way of life in Vietnam, and this is reflected in the menu at Muoi. This was our favourite spot to indulge in classic Vietnamese flavours and ultra-fresh seafood. Featuring an open kitchen and bar, and a display of seven live seafood options (including lobster, grouper, and prawns, all handpicked from local fish markets), you can select how your seafood is prepared and served.

For those chasing a relaxed beach party vibe, head to Breeza Beach Club: serving Mediterranean cuisine for a casual lunch or dinner right by the shore. You won’t be able to resist the grilled steaks and seafood!

Spa & wellness
The resort has positioned itself as a compelling wellness destination in southern Vietnam, offering packages designed to rejuvenate and inspire long-term health benefits.

Inspired by the goddess YHI, the resort’s YHI Spa offers a tempting menu of massages, facials, body scrubs, and hair care. The spa has been extensively refurbished to provide wellness offerings that help guests establish beneficial habits such as exercising, eating, and sleeping well.

YHI Spa also has sustainability measures in place, such as sourcing locally produced organic oils, limiting waste, and banning single-use plastics. But, if spa and wellness isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there’s plenty more to do at Meliá Ho Tram!

See & do
Start your morning with yoga by the beach or try your hand at tennis, beach volleyball, or kite flying. For a more cultural experience, join in traditional activities like lantern making.

And, of course, there’s always the option to sleep late then hit the beach! The resort infinity pools, where you can pull up a sunbed or get comfy in a cabana, are also perfect for lazing the day away. We certainly lost track of time while lounging by the pool and taking in the breathtaking sea views. When the sun sets, the resort comes alive with outdoor cinema screenings and live music performances.

And while it may be hard to tear yourselves away, you’ll have one of Asia’s top golf courses nearby, the Greg Norman-designed The Bluffs, as well as Hamptons Plaza and Hamptons Pier, noted for being the first pier in Vietnam and the longest in all of Asia. Adventurous couples can explore the Coc and Linh lakes or visit the Binh Chau mineral hot springs and mud baths for a unique experience in this beautiful land.
