The Ultimate R&R: Fusion Maia

8 December 2015

When I think about peace, tranquillity and total relaxation, Fusion Maia in Da Nang is the first place I picture. Even thinking about it now makes me feel calm - which says a lot given we live in such a busy, loud and hectic metropolis here in Hong Kong! The great news is that this serene oasis is but a mere 90-minute flight away.

Have you ever felt like you needed a quick getaway from work, a fun spa weekend with the girls, or a romantic couple of days with your significant other? Then look no further, as the Fusion Maia is the ideal place for you.

As soon as you set foot in the open-air lobby of this resort, you are immediately greeted by the unmistakable heady aroma of the surrounding frangipani trees; nothing evokes a sense of tropical paradise quite as much as the smell of these flowers. You are then escorted to the lounge area, where the check-in process is completed in the utmost comfort sitting on a sofa, sipping a refreshing beverage.

The resort offers only private villas, all with swimming pools, an outdoor area, and separate living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms so that you can fully relax in your own privacy and space. But how is this resort different to any other hotel in Asia boasting similarly exclusive private pool villas, I hear you ask? Well, how does "a minimum of two spa treatments a day" sound to you? Yes, this service is all included in the price!

These luxurious spa treatments include a range of indulgent massages, facials, body wraps and scrubs - meaning there is no fathomable way anyone could leave this resort feeling anything other than fully rejuvenated and rested. Fusion Maia is also perfectly placed on a long serene beachfront, with its pool overlooking the ocean and coconut trees swaying in the breeze; enjoy the opportunity to soak up some sunshine before for your next spa treatment!

Furthermore, with Hoi An only a short 20-minute drive away and a complimentary resort shuttle service at hand, you can easily visit this renowned Vietnamese UNESCO World Heritage Site to explore its stunning architecture, charming markets and meandering streets. This means a weekend getaway at the Fusion Maia should not only revitalise and reinvigorate your body and mind, but also fulfil all your gastronomic and cultural needs as well.

Now tell me… when can I go back, please?!
