During my time in Da Nang, I had the opportunity to stay at the Pullman Danang Beach Resort, one of the top 10 beach resorts in this area. Located right on the ocean front of the East Vietnam Sea, it is a great value luxury beach resort in Danang
The resort has made a feature of its entry, with a pavillion style, exposed beam roof and plenty of open space. My eyes were taken immediately past the plush arm chairs in the middle of the room, and through to the sunken bar, the large open windows and that view! With the ponds, fountains, swimming pool and ocean, water is a key feature at this resort, and the design makes the most of it all.
As is customary at all the Vietnamese hotels I stayed at, the welcome drinks are brought out promptly and with pride. On a hot day, quenching your thirst with this refreshing ginger concoction is welcomed
This property is on a sprawling complex, bordered by a medium-rise apartment building on one side, and restaurants and other facilities on the other. The superior and deluxe rooms, and suites, are all located together in the main accommodation building.
The superior and deluxe rooms offer a more affordable luxury room, whilst the Suites, ranging from Junior, Grand and the Penthouse reach further up the luxury and price scale.
Stand alone, luxury cottages are a unique addition. Set aside from the main resort, and nestled in amongst private gardens, these are the ultimate in luxury, but come with an associated luxurious price tag.
As a guest of the Pullman Danang, we got to stay in a Junior Suite. Located on level 9, we had a glorious view of the ocean and towards the peninsula.
This was an extremely spacious room, with an executive desk, lounge area, separate (and large) bathroom and a massive wrap around balcony.
The two-way entry bathroom has a large shower and double vanities, and doors lead out onto the balcony. The jacuzzi, with it’s view out over the ocean is without doubt the feature here.
Great views can be had from the balconies. The smaller balcony off the bedroom offers ‘green’ views over the treetops, whilst the main balcony overlooks the ocean. Outdoor furniture in both areas are a nice inclusion.
Restaurants and bars
You’ll never go hungry here with multiple locations to eat and drink. From the fine dining restaurant Epice, to the more casual and relaxed Azure Beach Lounge, Infinity Bar. There’s something for everyone and for every occasion.
We had some fabulous food here, capped off with a special signature lunch. That one was so great that I will write about it separately to do it justice.
In the meantime, below is a sample of some of the food we had.
The resort has a well equipped gym. Both have a view of the pool and out towards the ocean. Kayaks, jet skis and bikes are also available. Three international golf courses are also located nearby.
Food is an integral part of the Vietnamese culture and they love teaching newcomers the secrets. Cooking classes are conducted onsite at the resort. Bookings are required.
If relaxing is more your style then you can spend time by the pool, take a Tai Chi class, or head to the Spa for a massage or treatment.
A great place to stay
It’s a shame I didn’t get to spend some more time here. One night really isn’t enough to be able to fully appreciate everything that a resort like this has to offer.
The weather was also terrible when we were here, meaning the beach wasn’t a pleasant place to be. But since we can’t control the weather, there’s absolutely nothing that could be done about that.
Lookout for the next article where I’ll be featuring our signature lunch in the Azure Beach Lounge.
How to get here
Pullman Danang Beach Resort is approximately 15 minutes from Da Nang International Airport.
If you are planning where to stay in Da Nang be sure to check it out.
Shuttle buses do operate from the hotel to nearby Hoi An, however they are not included as part of your room rate, which is unfortunate.

A special thank you to the Pullman Danang Beach Resort for extending the invitation for me to stay with them. As always, my thoughts and opinions are my own.
