A relaxing respite from the bustling city of New York, the Hamptons is known for its beaches, high-end restaurants, celebrity homes, and designer boutiques, all of which make it a popular vacation spot especially for the well-heeled. But did you know that you don’t have to fly all the way to the United States to experience a five-star retreat similar to what the famous Hamptons can offer? Coming from Manila, it only takes a two-hour flight to get to Vietnam’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport, which is a two-hour drive from Melia Ho Tram Beach Resort, a.k.a. an exclusive destination that’s now being touted as Ho Chi Minh’s answer to New York’s Hamptons, Rome’s Naples, and Sydney’s Blue Mountains.
If you’re aching for a luxurious stay with five-star facilities within your reach, Melia Ho Tram might just be the destination you’re looking for. The exclusive resort is home to three restaurants including a beach club, a swim-up bar, a coffee shop, a tranquil spa, a gymnasium, and multiple swimming pools, including their 1,491-sqm main pool anchoring the 17-hectare resort.
Melia Ho Tram also boasts of contemporary rooms, suites, and villas with incredible views of the ocean. You can choose to stay in one of their Tower Rooms & Suites, or take things up a notch and book an entire villa for a more lavish experience.
If you’re planning to visit for your honeymoon, you might want to consider booking their Romance Suite, a 120-sqm villa-style suite with a king-sized bed, a private pool with terrace, plus large living room and dining area, and a spacious bathroom with bathtub. You can even request to have floating breakfast served at your private pool. It’s an experience ideally designed for a romantic getaway!
Personally, when my husband and I recently visited Melia Ho Tram, we decided to skip the city tour at Ho Chi Minh and instead spend the entirety of our stay at the beach resort. There were so many things to do—hit the beach, go biking, lounge around the pool, get a relaxing massage, sip on cocktails at the swim-up bar, and take endless photos for the 'gram. You’ll easily find that a three-day stay isn’t quite enough for an experience likened to that of the Hamptons in New York.
Oh, and BTW, Vietnam is a visa-free country for Filipino tourists! So all you'd literally have to do is book a flight to Ho Chi Minh and plan your stay at Melia Ho Tram.
