Vietnam welcomes its first Sheraton. 

Vietnam’s first Sheraton takes over a long stretch of pristine Non Nuoc Beach, just 20 minutes’ drive from downtown Da Nang and UNESCO site Hoi An, and 10 minutes’ walk from the tourist attraction of Marble Mountains.

The 258 rooms and suites of Sheraton Grand Danang Resort (www.marriott.com) face the vast peninsula of Son Tra, evoking a warm yet airy feel with creamy shades and floor-to-ceiling windows (from B7,649/night), all cut down the middle by an ultra-long pool.

Onsite there’s a poolside bar, beach club and mellow jazz lounge as well as a spa offering ancient Asian treatments. VietJet (vietjetair.com) just launched daily direct Bangkok-Da Nang flights (from B5,782 return).
