Navigate your way through a range of activities

Nha Trang is a true beachside city, with both a beautiful coastline and the buzz of commerce. Event planners can easily split groups between activities such as sightseeing, watersports and shopping, as everything there is within a 10-minute drive.

Where to stay

Sheraton Nha Trang is the first five-star international hotel along this stretch and is specifically designed with regional meeting and incentive groups in mind. It is a new-look Sheraton with a fishbone layout designed to give all 284 guestrooms full sea views. Event facilities go well beyond the ballroom.

Starting at the top (level 28), The Altitude is a multipurpose sky bar with enough space for group check-ins. The entire venue is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean and surrounding city, and there is a good-size terrace. The huge poolside area on level six is popular for arrivals and welcome receptions, gala dinners, product launches and cocktail parties. The oceanfront space includes full-service bar Plunge, and backs onto a multipurpose games room that can be used as additional F&B space.

The 11 meeting rooms are well-equipped and spread across levels two and three, with plenty of indoor and outdoor pre-function space. The largest seats 260 for banquets. All restaurants can be taken over by groups, but the highlight is Feast, with interactive cooking stations. On-site activities include a two-floor Shine Spa for Sheraton, with nine treatment suites and a Vichy shower. The purpose-built cooking school can take 20 people at one time. Cycle to the markets with the chefs before preparing a meal under their guidance.

Evason Ana Mandara is a spectacular setting for executive retreats and high-end incentive groups. There are 17 villas containing 74 guestrooms, each with a private terrace. The Cham Room can seat 60 delegates in theatre style.

Most major hotel groups have started projects along Vietnam’s coastline in anticipation of direct international flights. Opening soon in Nha Trang is a 305-room Crowne Plaza with meeting facilities for 800 delegates. Also coming up is the 250-room Nha Trang Marriott Hotel, which will offer 670 sqm of events space from 2013. Westin Resort & Spa, Cam Ranh is located 10 minutes from the international airport with 330 guestrooms and villas, all with ocean views.

What to do

Nha Trang’s attractions are all nearby, so a lot can be built into a three-day programme with time left to unwind. Coaches are readily available and a short city tour will orientate the group before taking in the city’s attractions. The most well known is the Po Nagar Cham Towers, an eighth-century temple that is available for gala dinners. Other favoured options for off-site dining include a beachfront banquet for up to 220 people, or Xua for a taste of local cuisine in a great atmosphere (300).

DMCs can also organise coastline cruises in a luxury yacht, whitewater rafting, waterfall treks, visits to mud baths, night markets or, Vinpearl Water Park, or an evening of fireworks.

Useful information

Cam Ranh International Airport is new and efficient, but currently only accepts direct international flights by charter. It is only a matter of time before this changes. For now, Vietnam Airlines and Qantas subsidiary Jetstar, operate one-hour transit flights from Ho Chi Minh City throughout the days.

Most nationalities require visas to enter Vietnam, but these can be pre-arranged online for speedy processing on arrival.

Nha Trang enjoys 300 days of sunshine, but is best avoided from October to December.
