The Hyatt Regency Danang is a sleek 5* beachfront resort with not just 1 or 2 pools, but 5 pools! One even has a slide! Then there are the ultra-modern rooms boasting glorious views of tropical gardens, dazzling pools and the enticing ocean. But this fancy resort isn’t just for couples, bring the kids too because there are a lot of special touches to make them feel right at home. Our stay coincided with Paige becoming horribly ill the day before arriving, let us tell you, the Hyatt Regency was possibly the best place in Vietnam for her to recover.

Hyatt Regency Danang
The Hyatt Regency is still relatively near new, having only opened in late 2011. Found in Danang, Vietnam’s fourth-largest city, this luxury resort is easily accessible within 15 minutes from the International Airport. It takes up a prominent position on a pristine beach, complete with powdery soft sand, turquoise water and plenty of palm trees. Note that although the location is close to the city centre, the property is quite isolated and you will need to catch a cab to get anywhere. This adds to the tropical retreat vibes though as you feel like you have a slice of paradise to yourself. Also, cabs are very cheap in Vietnam compared to Australian standards! However with a convenience store onsite, you could be forgiven for never even leaving the resort!
Minutes down the road you will find the famed Marble Mountains. And 40 minutes further, the UNESCO World Heritage town of Hoi An, a MUST visit. The Imperial City of Hue is only a train ride away. Slightly further afield is Ba Na Hills a cultural park of sorts where you will find a medieval-styled French village, entertainment and the oh-so-Instagrammable Golden Hands bridge.
The property consists of 198 guest rooms and suites. 160 one, two and three-bedroom residences, complete with kitchens and all of the properties facilities. Additionally there are 22 three-bedroom beachfront villas with their own private pools. There certainly is something here for everyone and groups of all sizes.
Inside Our Pool View King Room
We were warmly welcomed in the lobby and promptly taken to our room. A quick flash of our access card and we were greeted by our slick modern 42sqm pool view king room. Bright earth tones with premium furnishings and fittings set the tone for the luxurious standard of the room, and the Hyatt Regency in general. Immediately upon entry you will find the minibar and refreshment station, neatly hidden behind various drawers. There is a range of complimentary tea and coffee products, unfortunately, no pod coffees though. There’s also several bottles of water of which you can always call up for more if need be. Vietnam styled coffee pot and cups was a nice local touch.
The main room feels light and refreshing thanks to the sunshine flooding through the floor to ceiling balcony windows. A large king-size bed adorned with feather pillows and luxurious linens just beg to be jumped on. So of course with Ollie’s encouragement we obliged. Taking up the corner of the room by the window was a large, comfy L shaped couch, the perfect spot to kick back after a long day soaking up the sun. Or for a little kiddie to crash out and have a nap.
Sitting on the coffee table much to our delight was a selection of goodies and treats which we immediately opened up. The traditional drip coffee device and local ground coffee were super unique too. We may need to practice on our drip coffee making skills though haha!!
Tastefully hidden behind the minibar area is an enormous walk-in robe, seriously its massive. There was more than enough space for all of our excessive luggage, and then room for more. We love when rooms have large closets to be able to hide everything so that it doesn’t feel too cluttered.
The bathroom was spotlessly clean and very lavish. His and her sinks as well as a selection of nice Pharmacopia eco-friendly amenities. The standalone bath and rain shower have commanding views out the window of the tropical landscape below. James even commented on how nice the tap fittings felt and looked them up to put in our own home, after seeing the price we thought maybe not! No wonder it felt so nice!!
Then came the showstopper balcony, complete with a large circular daybed. Where better to cosy up reading a book, looking out over the pools and gardens below. The rail and glass were very secure and we felt safe with Ollie playing out there with us. We loved getting up early and enjoying our coffee on the daybed whilst watching the sunrise through the palm trees. Bliss!
The Regency Club is part of an exclusive accommodation package and can be added to your booking. It entitles various perks such as personal concierge, boardroom and deluxe lounge access, separate pool and sundeck area, daily continental breakfast, all-day refreshments and cocktails and canapes in the evening. We loved having access to the Regency Club and even just the cocktails and canapés make it oh so worthwhile! Seriously there are so many canapés on offer and even a main meal type dish that rotates each night. And then there were all the awesome desserts! And don’t forget the cocktails, of which there is a Cocktail of the Day on offer each day! We loved the mojitos. The Club also is home to an adults-only pool, which although looked lovely, we had to give a miss with Ollie in tow.
The labyrinth style swimming pool at the heart of the resort is absolute bliss. You will find it winding its way amongst lush tropical gardens at varying depths. Then there is the large pool complete with slide big enough to keep even the adults happy. Of course who could forget the separate pool aimed at the little travellers that is complete with a sandy beach and is the ideal depth for kids. There’s also another large pool on the other side of the resort and of course the adults-only one in the Regency Club. So you will never be able to say you couldn’t find a spot to laze about in the sun!! Of course if you do get sick of the five pools on offer. there is a perfectly manicured Snow White sand beach with plenty of loungers and umbrellas. Unfortunately, the weather was quite overcast during our stay but the pools it was still hot and the pools the ideal temperature. Also nowhere ever seemed particularly busy as everybody was so spread out.
The fitness centre is very modern and with a good selection of equipment and free weights. James went both mornings we were there and it was empty both times. Regardless though there is plenty of room and lots of benches so you will always be able to get your workout in.
Dining at Hyatt Regency Danang
Breakfast @ The Green House
The Green House is the biggest dining space on the property, yet is warm and inviting. This comfortable space looks out over the pool and beach through large floor to ceiling windows. It is also where the glorious Hyatt Regency buffet breakfasts are provided. If you can’t find something to eat here, there is something wrong with you, there is something for everybody and we mean it. There was a range of local and international food items and all of the staples you come to expect, as well as some cool additions. The thick-cut smoked bacon gets them some bonus points as it was delicious. They also have a rotating specialty item station where you can customise a type of dish to your liking. One morning this was smoked salmon bagels and the other mouthwatering banh mi. Make sure to sample the pastries too as they were much better than the average ones you get served up at some places. Coffee orders are also taken from the table which is always appreciated.
Lunch @ The Pool House
Adjacent to the main pool with stunning beachfront views is The Pool House restaurant. The Pool House serves up a variety of authentic Vietnamese dishes and western comfort food. We mean it when we say it, try out some of the local Vietnamese offerings, we had several and they were all absolutely incredible.
How Kid-Friendly Is Hyatt Regency Danang?
Amenities & Facilities
Everything you could need for a travelling child is available at the Hyatt Regency Danang, and if it’s not already in the room, its only a phone call away. Our room was set up with a cot awaiting our arrival. They even have baby amenities available such as soaps and shampoos.
If you are a Hyatt regular you will know Camp Hyatt is their kid’s club. Children from 3-12 can use it, whilst those younger can if they have a parent or nanny with them. This fun kids haven is full of toys both indoors and out, a large outdoor playground, pool table and various PlayStations and Wii devices. Camp Hyatt also offers a full schedule of activities to keep them occupied
As mentioned before there are 5 pools on the property, 4 of which the kids are free to use. And what kid wouldn’t be happy playing in a large shallow pool with its own sandy beach edge, with loads of buckets, spades and other toys laying on the sand! That massive slide leading into the main pool is sure to be a major drawcard to all the kids as well!
Dining with kids is a breeze here. Everywhere we ate the staff brought over high chairs and even colouring books as well as child-friendly utensils and crockery. Thoughtful kids menus mean they will always find something to eat. What we loved most though was the Kid Corner at breakfast. A specially lowered buffet section for the kids to go up to especially for them with cereals, pastries, fruits and beverages. An awesome touch that not many hotels offer.
