Meliá Ho Tram Beach Resort has opened Vietnam’s first Spanish beach club, with panoramic views of one of the country’s best beaches, entertainment in spades and a distinct Mediterranean vibe.
Dubbed “the place to be”, Breeza Beach Club brings the spirit of the world-famous Mediterranean chill-out beach clubs and bars to Vietnam’s south, perched on some of the five-star resort’s most inspiring ground right on Ho Tram beach and adjacent to a 1491-square-metre pool at the heart of the 17-hectare property.
Breeza Beach Club is home to an open kitchen, a bright and airy interior that seats up to 160 people, as well as a capacious terrace with an outdoor cocktail bar at its centre designed to take advantage of Ho Tram’s sunsets, and picture-perfect cabanas peppered between coconut trees on the beach.
Referencing the beach clubs of Ibiza and Bali, yet exuding its own boho chic, Mediterranean feel, Breeza is open from 10.30am until 12.30am daily. The venue hosts live music by saxophonists, trumpeters and violinists, DJs spinning the decks, themed parties, dancing shows, large bonfires and more.
To pay homage to Spain’s famed gastronomy, the beach club’s chefs specialise in curing, then fire-grilling their own meats. Their colourful yet simple dishes include crudos, ceviches, and flamed and grilled seafood.
Breeza has concocted a selection of imaginative cocktails in consultation with celebrity New York mixologist Joseph Boroski, recognised as one of the globe’s top bartenders, and Hendrick’s ambassador Charmaine Thio, who is also a bartender at one of the world’s top 50 bars, Singapore’s 28 HongKong Street.
“Life is a breeze at Breeza and there isn’t a better place in Vietnam to be on the water,” said Meliá Ho Tram Beach Resort’s general manager Manuel Ferriol. “Our beach club is a tribute to Spain’s unique way of life, where we celebrate the pleasures in life such as delectable Spanish cuisine, chilled out entertainment and spectacular sunsets.”
Dotted with sofas, Breeza’s outdoor terrace lends itself to BBQs. The private cabanas, sprinkled around the beach club on the sand, come with exclusive premium drinks packages.
The beach club’s design, like the 152-room and 61-villa resort in general, deploys a neutral palette of colours as a complement to Ho Tram’s sandy shore.
Deemed one of the most prestigious properties in the global Meliá Hotels and Resorts portfolio, Meliá Ho Tram Beach Resort is a two-hour drive from Vietnam’s largest metropolis Ho Chi Minh city.
The resort celebrated its grand opening on April 20 this year, cutting the ribbon on three restaurants, three swimming pools, a swim-up bar, a coffee shop, a 10-treatment room spa, an executive lounge, a ballroom and conference facilities, a kid’s club, gymnasium, gift shop and more.
