Sunrise Hoi An Beach Resort
Travel Blogs from Hoi An
I arrived in central Vietnam in DaNong and traveled on to Hoi An. The weather here was quite a contrast to hot Cambodia and Thailand. Back into long pants. Now Vietnam is much more modern and organized than either of those two countries. The streets were spotless, the hotels immaculate. I stayed at the Sunrise Hoi An, spectacular hotel on the beach …
Having declared Tuesday a day of Luxury we were immediately impressed by the Sunrise resort. Two pools, easy access to the beach, great rooms, massive beds, why even the long hallways are beautifully decorated. Quickly realising that we should have taken better advantage of the amazing deal on Agoda and booked in for another night, we approached …
The bus to Hoi An is packed to the brim, mainly of other backpackers. The buses here seem crazy to us, you take your shoes off at the door and place them into a plastic bag before been allowed to bring them on board. Then the whole bus is decked out in bunk beds. Three rows stretching the length of the bus. And tiny bunk beds at that, if your short …
14th March This morning we are heading to Hoi An and i cant wait as I have heard so many great things. Our cab ride was meant to be a fixed rate at 350 Dong. Unfortunately for us our cabby had other ideas. On the way to the airport he stopped off at the cannon factory to speak with and grab something from his wife- awesome just what you wanna be …
We had a short and very cramped flight in a plane built with Vietnamese leg room - we felt sorry for the 6ft5 Dutch guy sat next to me. Fatima however didn't know what all the fuss was about, thinking she was in Business class with plenty of leg room!

How has this resort rated in the past?
We stayed at Sunrise for 3 nights in August and were more than happy with the experience. Some of the decoration is looking a tiny bit tatty already, but this is purely the odd chipped paint etc, nothing more.
The rooms are nice and modern and have all the amenities you want. WiFi was reliable which also seems a rarity in these parts.
The pool bar does a happy hour between 5 and 7 in which is't 2 for 1 on all alcoholic beverages. Just keep in mind that you will automatically get two of the same, you can't have two different even if they're the same price.
Drinks did seem a little expensive, not by western hotel standards but certainly for the middle of Vietnam. The Thai food by the pool bar really was superb, probably some of the best we had during out visit.
Other reviews mentioned the lack of English speaking front house staff. I must admit we didn't encounter this, all of the staff were very courteous and we had no problem in understanding one another.
There's a free shuttle bus to and from Hoi An old town on a reasonably frequent basis, and also a free shuttle to the airport, although a hotel taxi is only $15 anyway.
All in all a very enjoyable stay and a hotel that I would be happy to recommend.
