Located in Phu Yen on 98-hectares of lush green gardens and close to Quy Nhon, Zannier Hotels Bãi San Hô is a first-rate holiday resort that will open on December 1st 2020. Surrounded by spectacular hills and lush vegetation, this discrete peninsula lies far away from the mainstream tourist paths, in the province of Bình Định standing out with its soul and historical authenticity. The untouched and well-protected coastline unmasks an impressive coral bay.
Away from the usual tourist paths, Zannier Hotels Bãi San Hô, opening in December 2020, offers a unique opportunity to explore Vietnam’s best-kept secret. Located in Phu Yen, one of Vietnam’s most biodiverse regions with rich fauna and flora that can be observed on both land and sea, Zannier Hotels Bãi San Hô offers limitless opportunities for outdoor activities and experiences.
Bai San Ho, meaning “coral bay”, refers to the one kilometre long, blindingly white sandy coastline, which is still pristine and immaculate. The resort peacefully winds its way along with lush greenery and spectacular rolling hills. The bay itself is renowned for the majestic coral reef beneath its waters. At the heart of this little Eden, hundreds of local craftsmen were working hard to add the final flourish to a new hotel experience. Every corner of the resort, whether it is for relaxation, accommodation or dining, is primarily inspired by the surrounding nature and reflects the local history and Vietnamese customs.
The closest airports are Phu Cat (UIH) in Quy Nhon, and Tuy Hoa (TBB) in Phu Yen, that are a mere 60 minutes by car. Several daily flights connect Phu Cat and Tuy Hoa with Hô-Chi-Minh-city (1h10) and Hanoi (1h40). The Cam Ranh International Airport (CXR) in Nha Trang offers another alternative for international travellers. Limousine transfers are provided upon request.

Very intimate, almost hidden, Hầm Bar is a beautiful cocktail bar located in the main building. Its name can be translated into ‘shelter bar’, and perfectly illustrates the “gentlemen’s club” spirit of this secluded and modern cocktail bar. Hầm Bar is a fusion of Vietnamese and French styles, with some design references to Indochina, including a rococo-style décor and aristocratic influences. A selection of premium spirits and sophisticated creative cocktails is on offer in this intimate cocktail bar.
The traditional restaurant offers a culinary journey and invitation to dive into the authentic, minimalist and sophisticated cuisine of Vietnam. Overlooking the rice-fields of the property, Bà Hai is an impressive 12-meter high building, on stilts, very characteristic with its steep sloped (almost vertical) ceiling made of bamboo, rattan and wood. Open every evening, Bà Hai offers four fixed menus (to share). Each of them features ten communal dishes and one dessert, that best reflect four main cuisines of Vietnam from the North, South, the Center and a vegetarian options.
