Nestled on an islet overlooking the Thu Bon River, Namia River Retreat is just a short bicycle ride from Hoi An’s bustling central market and vibrant café scene. This tranquil oasis offers a unique blend of luxury villa stays, traditional wellness therapies, and cultural activities inspired by the rich heritage of the ancient town.

Luxurious Villas with Stunning River Views

Namia River Retreat features 60 luxurious pool villas on a picturesque islet. Each villa, inspired by the native Nipa palm forest, boasts an open-plan living room flowing into an outdoor terrace with breathtaking views of the forest or the Thu Bon River. The spacious bedroom includes a sunken bathtub overlooking the pool and an en-suite bathroom with a refreshing shower.

The resort’s main attraction is its experiential salt-water swimming pool with 180-degree views of the Thu Bon River. The poolside restaurant and bar offer relaxed, all-day dining inspired by local fishermen, with fresh seafood and locally sourced herbs from nearby Cham Island.

Culinary Delights

The mainland welcome lounge leads to Mia Dining, where the flavors of Hoi An come alive. Inspired by local arts and crafts, and the ancient trading port’s exotic spices and wares, Namia’s hyper-local culinary journey offers guests an authentic taste of Vietnam with nourishing farm-to-table ingredients.

Guests can savor authentic Vietnamese cuisine at Mia Dining or indulge in a riverboat dinner cruise for a memorable dining experience. The market display at Namia features locally sourced spices, artisanal coffee, and unique handicrafts, offering guests the perfect souvenirs to take home.

Spa Rituals

At Namia River Retreat, guest wellbeing is paramount. Each guest can enjoy a 90-minute wellbeing journey per person, per night, which includes a 30-minute herbal hammam using locally sourced herbs and a 60-minute traditional therapy. These treatments are perfect for detoxifying and calming the mind and body.

“The spa and wellbeing journey has a distinct Vietnamese story and is inspired by Thuoc Nam (Southern Herbology). We’ve also incorporated a visit to our apothecary, Duong Sinh (a traditional Vietnamese morning movement practice) as well as Xông Hơi (a folk remedy steam prescription) and Dien Chan (oriental facial reflexology) into the guest experience”, says Michelle Ford, the CEO of Lumina Wellbeing, the wellness and hotel operator of the resort.

“My vision is to create a resort that reflects our cultural essence in a modern way. I’ve shared my stories and childhood memories in the village with the team, which are now infused into design details or cultural experiences. The name Nam-Mia is about passing on my legacy to my two sons – the next generation. To be proud of our culture of Vietnamese hospitality and that it can be amongst the best in the world”, says Nam, CEO of the owning company HG Holdings. “I can’t wait to share this with you!”
