We recently checked into the Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa in Central Vietnam. This luxury hotel is the perfect choice for families looking for a relaxing beach holiday in Vietnam, and is filled with child-friendly facilities to make your life easier. We especially loved the swimming pool with its water slide and sandy beach for the kids.
Bedtime at the Hyatt Regency Danang
As we were visiting as a group with four adults and four children, we opted for one of the ultra-spacious 3-bedroom residences. The residences, which also come in 1- and 2-bedroom configurations, are an excellent choice for families, as they benefit from fully equipped kitchenettes and separate living and dining areas. We also had an enormous balcony with stunning views over the resort and out to sea (see below), plus all the facilities you would expect from a 5* hotel. For the ultimate experience, I would suggest requesting a residence in block C, which is set just 7 metres from the beach, with unobstructed views out to sea.
Playtime at the Hyatt Regency Danang
The Hyatt Regency Danang is a family holiday paradise, with kids’ facilities galore. The main pool (there are five in total) is enormous, with plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. At one end you have the super-fun helter-skelter waterslide, and at the other end a sandy ‘beach’ dotted with buckets and spades, where the water is shallow enough for mum and dad to lie back with a cocktail while the kids run in and out to their hearts’ content.
The kids’ club, Camp Hyatt, caters for children aged 3-12 (or younger if you book a babysitter to stay with them) and has a full schedule of fun activities planned, from craft workshops and face painting, to rock climbing and treasure hunts. They are also fully loaded with Wiis and Playstations for the older kids, and there is kite flying on the beach every afternoon. And what a beach it is too! Endless miles of pure white sand stretching into the distance. Heaven.

Dinnertime at the Hyatt Regency Danang
There are three restaurants within the resort, plus a retail bakery and deli shop serving pastries, cakes and cookies, snacks, bottles of wine and coffee for takeaway. An extensive and generous breakfast buffet is served every morning in the Green House, which later offers up a selection of Vietnamese and Italian dishes.
We spent most of the time eating with the kids at the Pool House, which offers alfresco seating overlooking the beach and pool and is the perfect spot for lunches and sundowners. They dish up both Vietnamese and Western dishes (and if you have pizza fiends for children like we do, you can also order pizza from the Green House to be served here).
The dinner-only Beach House is best saved for nights when you opt for a babysitter, and can enjoy a sumptuous Vietnamese feast in peace. Also don’t forget that Hoi An is easily accessible for dinner and is famed for its fabulous cuisine. You can read our pick of the Best Restaurants in Hoi An here.
In the ‘hood
Beautiful and historic Hoi An is widely regarded as Vietnam’s most charming town, and is just a 30-minute drive from the Hyatt Regency Danang. Depending on the ages of your children, you could happily spend a few hours exploring the winding streets here, popping into the plethora of art and souvenir shops – or save your children’s little legs by hiring a cyclo driver to pedal you around for some exertion-free sightseeing.
Hoi An is also famous for its tailor shops and it’s hard to leave without having at least one outfit tailor-made for you – even my 3-year old enjoyed picking out some material and being measured up for a new skirt.
For those looking for some culture, the ruins of My Son Sanctuary are considered by many to be Vietnam’s most significant archeological site, and can be visited in a half-day trip, including a boat trip back to Hoi An.
