Whether it's swim-up bars, tropical gardens or spa access that appeals, here are our favourite hotels in Vietnam.
This Platinum-rated hotel is put together with classic Oriental flavours, boasting an on-the-beach location and its very own spa.
When you aren't basking in the swimming pool or whirlpool bath, the sandy shores of the Gulf of Thailand are only a few steps away. Free Wi-Fi and an on-site currency exchange take away your travel stresses, and a swim-up pool bar is the perfect accompaniment to high-end restaurant cuisine.
Offering three themed restaurants and a spacious outdoor pool lined with Balinese beds, you'll be in the lap of luxury at this contemporary 4* hotel. White-washed rooms adorn the shoreline, with the sparkling ocean waters providing unbeatable views from many of the Sol Beach House suites.
If the spa and gym aren't enough to keep you occupied, hire a bike and take a trip to the nearby Dinh Cau Temple, before returning for a choice of delectable dining options.
It's hard to believe a resort as lavish as this offers cheap package deals, but they do, and for your money you'll be staying in palatial surroundings.
Situated on one of Phu Quoc island's best beaches – Bai Dai Beach – a stay here gets you discount entry to the Vinpearl Safari Park, where you can see elephants, giraffes and mischievous monkeys at play.

Directly beside a spacious white sand beach, this modern venue has plenty to shout about. Choose from two glistening swimming pools with plenty of sunloungers around them to top up your tan, and drink and dine at a choice of options including a seafood restaurant and beach bar.
When you aren't exploring the local area you could be enjoying an oil massage, but with the restaurants and dozy bars of Duong Dong only a short distance away – plus popular Long Beach within view – the temptation to venture out isn't to be underestimated.
The 5* Salida Resort is rated as one of TripAdvisor's top luxury hotels in all of Vietnam for good reason. Beautiful tropical plants surround this scenic setting, perched on the edge of Long Beach and only a 10-minute drive from Duong Dong.

Another incredible 5* setting, La Veranda is a chic, boutique destination pressed right up against its own private beach.
You'll feel truly away from it all in this secluded setting, though in reality you're only a few minutes away from the lively streets of Duong Dong. Offering everything from beach barbecues to kayak hire to keep you entertained away from the poolside, Le Veranda will leave you feeling truly spoilt.
Picking a spot on the private beach and ordering coastal cocktails from the beach bar should be first on your list when you get to the Saigon Phu Quoc Resort.
