Luxury wellness holidays and retreats in Vietnam
Vietnamese Dong (VND)
Best months to visit
For an extended trip from north to south of Vietnam, March to May boasts warm temperatures and less rainfall. The central highlands are perfect for exploring at this time of year, before the likelihood of monsoon showers later in the year.
Thick rainforests and vibrant green rice paddies make way for bustling colonial cities and palm-fringed beaches, Vietnam is a dynamic destination - easy to explore yet impossible to forget. With its French influence and Belle Époque architecture, charming lantern-filled cities of Hoi An and Hanoi present a burst of culture and history. Step away from the bustling streets and into the rural Vietnamese life among the charming fishing villages and vibrant green rice paddies. Let Health Travel whisk you away to the tropical islands and coastlines for an adventure by land and sea. Set sail for a luxury wellness retreat with a twist in Ha Long Bay or on a riverboat along the Mekong Delta, with yoga classes and meditation hosted out on the deck. Soak up the clifftop views at Amanoi, a luxury wellness hotel renowned for meditation retreats and reiki overlooking Vin Hai Bay. Or experience aerial yoga and holistic sleep programmes at the acclaimed Six Senses Ninh Van Bay further south in Nha Trang.
