Vietnam is a diverse country with a rich and fascinating culture. It is no wonder why it has won over the hearts of so many travelers and digital nomads, who come for a holiday or stay here for an extended time. As we have already written about on Gamintraveler, you can easily travel through Vietnam on a budget. But that doesn’t mean you have to – if your budget allows, you can have epic luxury experiences in Vietnam that will pamper all your senses.

No matter if you’re traveling to Vietnam for a holiday or if you’re staying in this Southeast-Asian pearl for a longer time, we have selected two amazing spots on the beautiful beaches of South Vietnam to visit for a luxury getaway. From Vung Tau near Ho Chi Minh City to the paradise island Phu Quoc – soak up the luxury and comfort at these beautiful beach resorts.

Vung Tau: The Grand Ho Tram Strip

Just 120 km outside of Ho Chi Minh City lies Vung Tau, a beautiful beach town with a luxurious beachfront entertainment complex: The Grand Ho Tram Strip. It is Vietnam’s first beachfront integrated luxury resort with a casino and golf course. The Grand offers two five-star resort towers with a total of 1,100 rooms and suites.

Set on a long stretch of white sandy beach, guests at The Grand can expect luxury and entertainment at its finest. 15 restaurants and bars will have your taste buds cheering, five swimming pools will leave you refreshed all day long, while two award-winning spas are ready to have your body and mind relaxed. What’s more is Asia’s top-rated golf course, The Bluffs, which was designed by Greg Norman. 

Another jewel of The Grand is its casino, which offers a tropical sort of Vegas vibe, where glitz and glamour meet a beachy atmosphere. On the gaming floor, guests will find a huge selection of slots and table games, which have been becoming increasingly popular over the past few years as the availability and accessibility of casino games have increased on the web in Asia and worldwide.

By now, there is such a big selection of gambling sites available online that websites such as Asiabet have curated a list of the best sites for Asian players to play and bet on. With this, it is easier than ever to play popular casino games such as slots online wherever you are. With over 600 electronic games, 90 gaming tables, and a VIP room, The Grand Casino in Vietnam offers a variety of games to play in an upscale atmosphere. At The Grand Ho Tram Strip in Vung Tau, luxury and entertainment await. 

Phu Quoc: Salinda Resort

It’s the perfect destination for a trip away from the city to soak up the sun and enjoy the pristine beaches: Phu Quoc island. You can easily reach the island by bus and ferry from Ho Chi Minh City to dig your toes in the sand and refresh in the ocean while getting pampered at one of the luxurious resorts on the island. Our pick for a luxurious getaway on the beach: Salinda Resort. With 121 deluxe rooms and villas just a few steps away from the sandy beach, you will be sure to enjoy a relaxing and luxurious stay.

Picturesque palm trees fringe the white sand in front of the magnificent deep blue of the seemingly endless ocean. Enjoy a drink in the evening and watch as the sun disappears behind the horizon, dipping the miraculous scenery in golden hues. 

But it’s not just nature that will have you relax, because the attentive and professional staff as well as the many amenities at the Salinda Resort will fulfill your every wish. Visit the spa to pamper yourself with massages, body treatments, and facials to let go of any stress that might linger in your body, and relax by the pool surrounded by nature to unwind.

Give your taste buds a treat at one of the exquisite restaurants available at Salinda Resort and enjoy a selection of cuisines, from local specialties to Italian favorites. With all this, it’s really no wonder Hotels.com rated Salinda Resort as the number one best luxury hotel on Phu Quoc. 

While Vietnam is a great place to travel on a budget, it also offers exquisite resorts boasting luxury for an exclusive getaway on the beach. Visit Vung Tau or Phu Quoc to celebrate a special occasion or simply to pamper yourself and enjoy the beach in luxury.
