There is a wide range of golf resorts available if you are considering a Vietnam golf tour and selecting the right one for you can make the difference between a merely good trip and one of the best golf trips of your life. From international 5-star hotels in downtown Saigon and Hanoi, to all-inclusive golf resorts with private beaches and spa facilities in Nha Trang and Danang, to basic guest houses and local hotels in every destination you will have every choice imaginable for your accommodations when golfing in Vietnam.
Selecting a suitable resort for you vacation is extremely important as it will form the base for your golf vacation as well as for the most part determine your overall trip cost. A very important factor to consider is that prices and standards of Vietnam resorts in general are more than likely to be superior and less expensive to similar resorts in your own country. This is due to a number of factors including fierce competition and significantly more service staff employed by each resort.
For example, I have found that many golfers look at a certain budget for accommodation then select a golf resort based on this amount. Many fine 4-star resorts are available for around US$100 per night, 5-star properties near to the golf courses going for US$200 per night, and private golf villas available for US$300 and up per night.
Another factor in resort selection is location. In Saigon you definitely should get something in District 1 so you can be close to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. On the coast, this all inclusive Vinpearl Resort has its own golf course on a private island and both courses in Phan Thiet (Sea Links Golf & Country Club and Ocean Dunes Golf Club) have on-site accommodations that are attractive to many Vietnam golfers.
Further north in the Hue-Danang-Hoi An area, the accommodation choices are even wider. Many Asian’s like to stay in Danang where there are many inexpensive business hotels with attached spas and karaoke lounges. European and Australian golfers usually stay in Hoi An where there are good colonial hotels like Victoria and Hoi An Boutique resorts. My personal favorite however, is one of the upscale properties located on the beach between Danang and hoi An. The Fusion Maia with all inclusive spas and massages is great for golfers as are the private villas at The Ocean Villas and The Nam Hai. If you want an all-inclusive golf resort away from the main tourist areas, then the Banyan Tree in Lang Co is a great choice as well.
Nowadays, the internet is a good place to research Vietnam golf resorts. Once you decide, check with a local Vietnam golf tour operator to provide you with specific golf and up-to-date information as well as favorable package pricing. A local tour operator will handle your golf needs and when something arises unexpectedly (as it always seems to when in Vietnam), then your tour operator will be there to help and assure the success of your Vietnam golf holiday.
