Vietnam may be a thin sliver of a country but it’s somewhere jam-packed with once-in-a-lifetime memories, spanning from its top to its toe, fit for any honeymoon.

You’ll really get under the skin of this vibrant South-East Asian country on this Vietnam honeymoon itinerary, while also ensuring you celebrate your marriage with plenty of romantic experiences along the way. Start your honeymoon in Hanoi with a guided city tour that puts local life under the microscope and an authentic cooking class. Hop over to Halong Bay in a seaplane and become spellbound on a cruise through its epic limestone karsts, before strolling the time-frozen lanes of sleepy Hoi An. Here, traditional practices like its morning fish market and sedge mat weaving have remained unchanged for generations.

Your next stop on this luxury honeymoon to Vietnam will be a few nights in Saigon, where you’ll witness its buzzing nightlife and street food scene from the back of a Vespa. You’ll also have time to spy some of the city’s most beguiling sights away from the typical tourist track, like the French-inspired Central Post Office and an old apartment that has been reborn with a bustling café culture.

You’ll fancy some downtime after all that and you’ll find it at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, a resort lauded for its gorgeous tropical seclusion. You’ll enjoy several romantic occasions throughout your honeymoon – a candlelit dinner on a floating raft and a sunset cruise among them – but the several dining experiences here are like one big romantic crescendo. A private barbecue on the beach and a toes-in-the-sand film screening are just a taster, while there’s always the resort’s pristine milk-white beach to recline on.


Experience highlights

  • Take part in a hands-on cooking class with a local chef in Hanoi. Go shopping for ingredients at the local wet market and prepare one of your first meals as a married couple in the kitchen of chef Ai’s family home.
  • Cruise past the limestone karsts of Halong Bay, before enjoying a leisurely pedal through the verdant Cat Ba National Park and lunching at a family-run homestay.
  • Mark your marriage with a romantic candlelit dinner on a floating raft in the middle of Halong Bay. Once your appetite is filled, go squid fishing under the cover of darkness.
  • Go kayaking among the jade-hued waters of Luon Cave, paddling among the towering limestone karsts to discover the cave’s secret green lagoons.
  • Spend time with an aromatherapy expert and learn about the art of aromatherapy and what effect each smell and oil has on the body. At the end, use your new-found knowledge to create your own essential oil.
  • Learn about time-honoured traditions in Hoi An by visiting a family-run fish sauce factory (an essential ingredient in Vietnamese cuisine) and visit a village known for its sedge mat weaving, where you’ll make one with your own unique pattern.
  • Take the time to reminisce your wedding – and your honeymoon so far – on a private sunset cruise with dinner along Thu Bon River.
  • Zip through the streets of Saigon (now known as Ho Chi Minh City) on a Vespa before turning off the ignition for a deep dive into the city’s culinary scene, tasting your way through several local eateries.
  • Peel back Ho Chi Minh City’s lesser-known local life, meeting its time-honoured artisans and the young creative minds behind the city’s chic café culture.
  • From Ben Tre, youll board a cruise along the Mekong Delta to get a glimpse of local life. Stop at a small brick workshop, see coconut pressing by hand and visit a family home where youll enjoy tropical fruits and honey tea whilst hearing how the family relies on fishing and farming. 
  • Enjoy plenty of romantic moments on the sun-dappled island of Nha Trang, including a romantic seafood barbecue on the beach and an exclusive dinner for two in Six Senses Ninh Van Bay’s wine cellar.

    Where you’ll stay


    Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel, Hanoi

    A restored French colonial hotel dating back to 1901, Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel is well-located in the heart of Hanoi. It boasts a rich history and a century-long tradition of hospitality for ambassadors, statesmen and writers and it has been an ever-present among the affections of A-listers – Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard had their honeymoon here. Its rattan fans, wrought-iron awnings and butterscotch-tinged marble whisks back to the height of French Indochina in the early 20th century.


    Leader 36 yacht, Halong Bay

    With a sofa, double sundeck and generously sized saloon, the Leader 36 yacht is excellent for soaking up the spellbinding landscapes Halong Bay serves up as you pass them by. By day, the interior saloon is a spacious open-plan living area that grants those oh-so-magnificent views while by night, your cabin will be transformed into a plush suite complete with bar. It effortlessly marries elegance with sporty performance.


    Four Seasons The Nam Hai, Hoi An

    The Four Seasons The Nam Hai blows your socks off the moment you walk into its lobby, greeting you with a stunning tribute to traditional Vietnamese architecture, with silver-hued stone, pagoda-style roofs and bejewelled lanterns hanging from palm trees. The resort’s location also wows, with sprawling tropical gardens and twenty five miles of platinum-blonde sand just begging to be strolled along, where you might bump into a fisherman hauling in his daily catch.


    Park Hyatt Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City

    You can’t get a more well-placed hotel in Saigon than the Park Hyatt. Just moments from some of Saigon’s most iconic sights like the Opera House, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Reunification Palace, the hotel itself expertly showcases French colonial architecture. The hotel was also used as a US base during the Vietnam War and the regular broadcasts made from there by DJ Adrian Cronauer were immortalised by Robin Williams in the hit film Good Morning, Vietnam.


    Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Nha Trang

    Only accessible by boat, tropical isolation comes naturally to Six Senses Ninh Van Bay. Squeezed in-between huge boulders that pepper the crescent-shaped bay, each one of the rustic wooden villas is far enough away from the next to guarantee maximum privacy. The rocky peninsula, cotton-white sands and lush rainforest promise an intimate encounter with nature with limitless opportunities to immerse yourself with your pristine surroundings.
