Big points for the Little Hoi An Group

Updated: Sep 1, 2021

Firstly, they don’t have the word “Little” in their name by accident. Whether you know it or not, it is the “little” things that make a hotel different, and this hotel group has them in spades. 5 to be exact and counting.

It must be hard for an intending traveller to decipher the best choice for a truly local experience that doesn’t blow their budget. From my latest check on websites like and Agoda etc, there are hundreds of places to choose from.

So first up; The Little Hoi An Group is locally owned. They are not part of an overseas chain. I thought this worth mentioning because no one wants, what I refer to as a “Cookie Cutter type version” of a hotel, that you could stay anywhere in the world. You want something that feels like the real deal.

This hotel group actually breaks dirt. They build their hotels from the ground up and their design focus is on capturing the charm and soul of Hoi An. Each hotel offers its individual kind of charm, but the general theme of design and quality finishings is consistent in all the hotels.

A couple of things to note:-

* All the hotels have fully equipped modern gyms and spotless Spas and Wellness centres with fully trained staff

* Little Riverside Hotel offers a rooftop pool and bar

* They own their own cruise ship for day or evening dinner cruises

* You get the shuttle, bikes to ride around town and wifi FREE

* You have access to their FREE private beach club

Getting down to the detail again, did I mention "The bathrooms"? They are divine. To me a hotel that offers spacious bathrooms has their guests interests truly at heart.

With an average room size of 40Sqm across all the hotels, that's certainly not little in my book.

Currently the group boasts 5 hotels in their portfolio, so the traveler has a great range to choose from and as the standard across all of them is so high is the reason they have got the HELLO rating of a 10.

If you prefer a beach stay, Little Beach Hotel would be your best choice, only 5 mins shuttle bus to An Bang beach. If you’d rather be close to the Old Town you have a choice of 4 hotels, La Residencia, Allegro, Little Riverside and Little Boutique in Cam Pho. All within easy walking distance to the historic parts of town and the restaurant districts.

I have been staying at these hotels as they have come up for over 6 years. As each one is opened, I have to check it out. Every time I do I meet people who are doing the same thing, as they can't go past the service and luxury that remains constant across all the hotels as they come on.

If I haven’t mentioned the food the hotels offer yet, I’ve been remiss! Italian Master Chef Giovanni leads the group’s sophisticated Asian Fusion menu, while still offering authentic Vietnamese favourites. As I have said, “nothing is too big or little” to ask for, so be prepared to have your palette tantalised with some great flavours and nutritious food.

2020 will see them break dirt once again to build a new Luxury brand beginning with another site in Hoi An called Little Charm and one in Danang called Bayview Danang. Watch this space!

Consistency is definitely the key and repeat visitors are the best measure that “little” things DO matter.
