Discover Nha Trang with Gran Meliá’s Elevated Luxury

Gran Meliá Nha Trang, the luxurious seafront sanctuary which invites discerning global explorers to enjoy “a life well-lived” on Vietnam’s stunning south-central coast, has unveiled an exclusive new collection of experiences that will enable guests to rediscover the wonders of this idyllic destination, including its vibrant marine world, stunning seascapes, fresh, local produce, and world-class cuisine.

Nestled in its own private bay, set against the blissful backdrop of Fairy Mountain and overlooking the endless ocean, every aspect of this all-new five-star retreat is designed to ignite the imagination and stimulate the senses. Newly opened in July 2023, this five-star resort features 94 breath-taking private pool villas, indulgent wellness offerings and a passion for gastronomy, including the first Asian outpost of Hispania, the highly acclaimed Spanish restaurant, offering visitors myriad ways to unwind. With a series of exceptional experiences to choose from, couples, families and friends can create memories that will last a lifetime.

Dive into a world of conservation with the Coral Discovery

Nature lovers and passionate conservationists can help to protect Vietnam’s underwater world with newly-launched “Coral Discovery” marine conservation experiences. Guided by expert biologists, these meaningful journeys invite between two and 12 guests to learn the art of attaching new coral fragments to a colourful reef – either just steps from the resort’s sandy shore or further out at Tri Nguyen Island, which can be reached by luxury yacht or catamaran. As these young corals blossom, they will develop into an amazing ecosystem that attracts tropical fish and other exotic species, creating lasting benefits for the entire ocean. With a choice of two- or five-hour excursions suitable for accomplished divers and newcomers alike, plus refreshments and professional photos as a memento to take home, these unforgettable experiences will help all ages to foster a deeper connection with the environment.

Set sail on the sparkling sea with a Catamaran Voyage

Vietnam’s sparkling seascapes can also be admired with a private “Catamaran Voyage” aboard the resort’s luxurious yacht. Suitable for groups of two to 12 participants, this half-day private charter will let guests glide gracefully across the glistening turquoise sea, past enchanting islands, pristine beaches and jungle-clad mountains. Throughout the morning or afternoon, every party can customise their excursion with a choice of activities, such as snorkelling, stand-up paddle-boarding and sea fishing, and the boat’s expert crew will provide daytime refreshments and a delectable lunch or dinner. Every voyage will also include a stop at a secluded island, adding a sense of discovery to this day on the ocean.

Learn the art of gastronomy and soak up the local coastal culture with a Private Cooking Experience

Nha Trang is a paradise for seafood lovers, with an amazing array of local delicacies sustainably caught and sold fresh every day at bustling markets. Foodies can learn the art of Michelin-rated cuisine with a “Private Cooking Experience”. More than just a cooking class, this compelling culinary adventure commences with a trip to a bustling local fishing market, before guests return to Gran Meliá Nha Trang to craft an exquisite seafood paella according to a time-honoured recipe from the celebrated Spanish chef Marcos Morán from Hispania, accompanied by homemade sangria. Every guest will also be presented with a recipe book – allowing them to wow their friends at home with their new-found cooking skills.

Experience a new era of world-class Spanish cuisine at Hispania

Ever since it opened in December 2023, Hispania has become one of Vietnam’s most sought-after places to dine. Guided by Chef Marcos, the fifth-generation culinary master who already has two restaurants in Europe, including his Michelin-starred Casa Gerardo in Spain, this dazzling dining destination represents the pinnacle of Spanish gastronomy in South East Asia. Diners at Gran Meliá Nha Trang can now savour Hispania’s signature “100-Year” menu, so-called because it showcases century-old recipes that have been handed down through the generations and artfully reimagined with contemporary techniques. With fresh seafood crafted in authentic Iberian styles, prime meats cooked on a sizzling Josper grill, sublime soups, rich and flavourful rice dishes and more, all presented in a stunning seafront setting, this is the ultimate experience for lovers of fine gastronomy.

Enjoy unparalleled in-villa experiences

The 94 luxurious pool villas are adorned in a sleek, minimalist style with designer interiors and world-class facilities. Guests can unwind in comfort and privacy with a series of exclusive in-villa experiences, including a blissful bathtub ritual and bespoke spa therapies to soothe the senses, and curated culinary experiences such as afternoon tea and a private barbecue in the garden. With a selection of pool villas ranging from 314 to 699 square metres, all featuring lofty ceilings, stylish décor and unobstructed sea views in many rooms, Gran Meliá Nha Trang sets the stage for truly unparalleled experiences.
