The Nam Hai to Host Yoga Retreat and Sanctuary in Vietnam

After being recognized for its soothing design qualities by Travel + Leisure magazine this year, The Nam Hai Resort & Spa has taken its holistic aura to another level by introducing an inimitable yoga workshop.

Led by accomplished North American instructor Ted McDonald, the seven-day retreat will take place Aug. 30-Sept. 6 and Sept. 6-13 and will offer specially developed cuisine, luxurious spa treatments, local cultural excursions and, of course, an array of rejuvenating classes.

"This is for like-minded, adventurous people who love the outdoors and want to nurture their soul through yoga and one-of-a-kind experiences," said McDonald, founder of Los Angeles-based Adventure Yoga Retreats. "The Nam Hai offers the perfect venue for such a retreat because of its serenity, its service and its proximity to so many amazing sites."

The 35-hectare, GHM-managed resort trumpeted the dawn of a new day in upscale luxury accommodation along the Central Coast when it opened in December of 2006. Since then, it has reeled in a string of awards, including "World's Best Resort" in Travel + Leisure's most recent design competition.

The wellness seminars will take place at various locations in the region as well as within the tranquil confines of The Nam Hai, which offers lush landscaping, unobstructed views of the South China Sea and 100 ultra-posh villas modeled on traditional residences of Vietnam.

Days start with sunrise meditations on property, include daily yoga practice and end with exquisitely crafted dinners by executive chef Kath Townsend, who trained under celebrated Australian cookbook author Bill Granger.

Guests can also choose exotic treatments at the award-winning spa or to relax by the resort's clutch of infinity pools, take a Vietnamese cooking class or explore the nearby ancient port town of Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage site and Mecca for tailor-made clothing.
