Fusion Maia Da Nang

DSC01644 (1)

The second hotel Amy and I visited in Da Nang, Vietnam was Fusion Maia. It’s located close to the main city but tucked away right alongside the beach, making it a hidden oasis and a separate world in and of itself. Everything is tailored around being mindful of the mind, body, and spirit and is designed to give you the most relaxing stay possible.ย I really appreciated the great attention to detail. The decor, service, food, spa, activity offerings, etc., all meshed together perfectly to give this place an absolute calming charm.

The energy of this resort felt very clean, soft, and tranquil. Maybe a significant part of this is due to the amazing staff. We were always greeted with warm friendly smiles and hellos from every passerby. Everyone whom we spoke with had a very calm and friendly demeanor about them. I don’t think I have experienced better service anywhere.

The most unique factor that follows Fusion Maia‘s theme of wellness and healthy living are the two spa treatments per day that is included with your stay. They have a variety of options ranging from different types of massages, body scrubs, therapies, and energy cleansing treatments.ย There are also exercise classes and activities throughout the day, every day, so there is always something new to try.

Often life can get so busy, I don’t think most people find the time to slow down and meditate or do things that really calms the spirit. I know I rarely do.ย Excuse me for getting a bit metaphysical here. After my spa treatments I was extremely relaxed. I was caught in that dreamy state where it felt like my mind had left my body and I was one with the universe, like a beautiful nothingness that is just simply existing and floating.

Do you guys ever get that feeling when you open your eyes and reality slowly sinks in and you’re bewildered that you’re you, a human that is alive and walking on this earth? It’s sort of like a natural high that makes you perfectly at peace with yourself and the world around you. Slowly that high will drift away and everything starts to feel normal again, but you feel a little calmer overall. I find it very hard and rare to reach this state so it is always a grand experience when I do. Even as I’m writing this now, I’m realizing how important it is to slow down. So I urge you to take some time to meditate or get a massage and clear your mind every now and then my friend!

Lastly, the food was AMAZING (see below). Definitely some of the best food I had over the course of my whole one month trip. There was a wide selection at the breakfast buffet and everything tasted light, healthy, and delicious. My favorite was the sautรฉed mixed mushrooms. We also tried the lover’s fondue dessert set which had a mixture of fruits and sweets.

I definitely had a very memorable experience staying here. Finding a place like this honestly inspired me to be more mindful of the health of my body and mind. It is definitely on my bucket list to come back again one day ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pullman Da Nang Beach Resort

I started out my journey in Da Nang, Vietnam with Amy at the Pullman Da Nang Beach Resort. We had a fantastic relaxing stay and the hotel grounds offers many scenic areas to explore. It was located near the main areas of the city but was a haven away from the noise and bustle. However take a walk outside and you’ll find restaurants, spas, and many other places to check out.

We stayed in the one bedroom cottage which was decorated with a lot of wood. I find that these type of places has a very calming effect. There are also pops of blue decor which fits perfectly with the tranquility of the space. Many dragonfly wire sculptures can be found throughout the resort and you’ll also find many live dragonfly inhabitants.

There is a huge selection of delicious asian and western cuisine during the breakfast buffet. As if that wasn’t enough, the breakfast selections are also changed daily to provide guests with even more variety.

We spent most of our time here either relaxing, taking photos or swimming. It may be a little strange but I would have to say that my favorite part of all of this was the outdoor shower. Because how often do you find a private outdoor shower? ๐Ÿ˜‰
