Best-of-the-Best Luxury Tour of Vietnam

14 days from £4,780 per person

Vietnam is a food and culture lover’s dream. From delicious phos, lantern-lit temples and talented tailors to beautiful beaches, ancient fishing ports, and buzzing cities, Vietnam’s impressive roll call of highlights make her one of Asia’s most enticing destinations. She is also home to a handful of Ampersand’s favourite hotels and, for those who wish to experience the best of the best throughout their tour, we have designed the ultimate luxury tour of Vietnam staying at her finest hotels, incorporating her most indulgent experiences and expert guides.

Famous for her French cafés and honking mopeds, Hanoi is an intoxicating place to begin your journey. Take in the city’s sights and smells whilst spending 2 nights at the historic Sofitel Metropole; with its vintage Citroens and classy poolside cocktail bar, this grande dame hotel instantly transports you back to a refined and elegant era. Venture into the crumbling colonialism of Hanoi’s Old Quarter and enjoy a privately guided street food tour with local food expert, Mr Vu Long, who is head of the Hanoi Gastronomy Club, editor of Culinary Art magazine and a lecturer at Hanoi University.

Next, the UNESCO-protected Halong Bay beckons. Cruise through jade-coloured waters studded with towering limestone islands and experience the most luxurious vessel to sail these waters, the Paradise Peak. Launched in 2013, this 8 cabin boat is fitted out in sophisticated style with luxuries such as personal butler, beauty and massage facilities, Jacuzzi and sauna room, a gym and private balconies and sundeck to drink in the views. Start your day with a Tai Chi demonstration on the sun deck and discover the Bay of the Descending Dragon in the afternoon. Swim and kayak to surrounding caves, visit floating villages, have a Vietnamese cooking class or even do some late night squid fishing.

Spend 3 nights at the ultra-sleek Nam Hai resort, dividing your time between the pristine sands of Danang and the fairytale town of Hoi An, before heading to the newest – and, we think, best – Aman Resort in Asia, the Amanoi, set on a dramatic coastline on the edge of Nui Chua National Park. Designed by Jean-Michel Gathy, it is a temple of tasteful, understated décor and home to a truly exceptional Aman Spa. You’ll be fully relaxed and ready for the moped madness of Saigon, where you’ll stay at the city’s most luxurious hotel, the Park Hyatt. End the trip with your feet in the powder-soft sands of Con Dao island, flung 180 km off the mainland in the South China Sea. Sheltered by green hills and set on miles of white beach, the Six Senses Con Dao is the perfect spot to spoil yourself with treatments at the Six Senses spa or unwind with a long cocktail at your luxury beach villa.

It can be booked as it is, or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own ideal bespoke holiday to VietnamIf you'd like to see similar tours, take a look at our Ultimate Luxury VillasBeach Holidays, Spa & WellnessCulinary Tours and Honeymoon collections.

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
