We’re happy to have them on-board.”
Hon Tam Resort & Spa is located on Hon Tam, an eco-green island in the middle of Vietnam’s Nha Trang Bay surrounded by crystal blue waters and a private and pristine beach. This luxury resort features 49 cozy bungalows blending both traditional and modern Vietnamese architecture.

Nha Trang is known for its endless beach and warm tropical weather, as well as several notable islands such as Hon Tre, Hon Yen, Hon Rua and the Spratly Islands. The name Nha Trang is a Vietnamese pronunciation of a Cham word “Eatran” or “Yjatan.” Ea or Yja means river, and tran means reed. According to the locals, there once were a lot of reeds along Ngoc Hoi River, winding its way through town; Ngoc Hoi was later renamed Nha Trang.
Patong Bay Garden Resort is located on the popular Patong Bay in Phuket, Thailand offering a full range of facilities and activities, along with the classic touch of Thai charm and hospitality.
