Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai… will be no exception and we are excited to mark our entry into Vietnam with such a desirable location and a luxury product that will appeal to regional and international travellers, as well as private residence owners,” he added.
As a Four Seasons, the resortwill offer 40 private residence villas and 60 newly-renovated resort villas, all featuring indoor and outdoor living spaces, terraces and outdoor showers. At the centre of the resort are three swimming pools which overlook a sandy beach and the sea.
