Our favourite rooms
All the villas are spacious and child-friendly, with sofas that can be transformed into extra beds for under-12s (an extra charge applies). They're pretty easy on the eye, too, thanks to romantic net-canopied platform beds flanked by divans and freestanding eggshell-lacquered baths that open up to private gardens and outdoor rain showers. Families with older kids will love the spacious Two-Bedroom Pool Villas, which have sleeping pavilions, lavish bathrooms, a secluded garden and alfresco rain shower. You’ll also have a kitchen, maid’s room and swimming pool at your disposal. If it's instant access to China Beach that you're after, opt for a Beachfront Villa.
There’s no dedicated kids’ pool but the temperature-controlled upper pool is ideal for little ones: it’s open to children every day from 7am to 6pm. Dropping down a level, there’s a long, narrow lap pool for over-15s. Down by the sea, the Olympic infinity pool is an adults-only R&R haven. A lifeguard is present at all three pools from 7am to 6pm.
Eight treatment rooms float above a koi fish-filled lagoon at the Spa at the Nam Hai, designed by architect Reda Amalou. Each room features an open-air relaxation deck complete with a deep soak tub and cushioned day-bed big enough for two. Mr and Mrs Smith and over-16s can enjoy warm stone massages, facials featuring rainforest mud and local seaweed, plus other beautifying treatments.
No need – just book your spa treatments, fancy dinners and babysitting upon arrival.
