TIA Wellness Resort, Da Nang, Vietnam: Sassy Tried & Tested

9 June, 2023

A closer look at exactly what’s on offer at TIA Wellness Resort in Da Nang, Vietnam

Da Nang has long topped our holiday lists. So much so that it was the first holiday this Team Sassy member booked post-pandemic! After an affordable, two-hour direct flight you can be sitting beachside, relaxing with a cocktail in hand or exploring the lantern-lined lanes of historic Hoi An. Not to mention munching on the fresh fragrant flavours Vietnamese cuisine is famous for.

So let’s just say it was a happy coincidence that we could spend a day checking out TIA Wellness Resort to sample the amazing prize on offer in the current Sassy giveaway.

TIA Wellness Resort

Just a short drive from Da Nang International Airport, we arrive at TIA Wellness Resort and are immediately struck by the boutique look and feel of the all-villa property. The lobby and main restaurant have a chic, modern Vietnamese design that flows through the picturesque gardens leading to the beachside infinity pool.

Despite its photogenic position by the sand, the pool is surprisingly quiet thanks to each villa having a private pool (more on that later!). We took full advantage, diving straight in! Likewise, we were able to lap it up, relaxing in the crystal clear waters of the South China Sea.

Breathwork, Yoga And Wellness Activities At TIA Wellness Resort

A unique concept, TIA Wellness Resort offers complimentary wellness classes for all guests. It offers daily breathwork, Tai Chi, yoga and creative workshops.

Hosted in a bright and airy studio within the spa sanctuary, the breathwork class was held to the meditative sounds of the waterfall, palm trees moving in the breeze and the melodic hum of the cicadas and birds. As we were all beginners, the instructor guided us through the basics, easing us into relaxation for the day ahead.

The session I was most curious about, if not a little sceptical about (if I’m being honest) was the creative workshop. Colouring with my kids aside, neither my husband nor I are the most artistic people. We went in with an open mind (and perhaps a few jokes about our creative capabilities). The workshop was surprisingly relaxing, as we were guided through colour choices to match our feelings and given a variety of mediums to work with.

No, I will not be showing you my masterpiece. But, in a turn that could only be described as fate, the session concluded with my husband and I revealing our very, VERY similar works of art. I’m going to assume it’s because we are soulmates so in tune with each other’s feelings rather than the sheer coincidence of a shared beachside view out the window (we both created ocean waves and sunsets in case you were wondering!).

Included Spa Treatments At TIA Wellness Resort

We couldn’t visit an all-inclusive resort without sampling the spa menu. Every guest has access to up to two spa treatments (to a maximum of 80 minutes) every day from a treatment menu with a variety of both 50-minute and 30-minute options.

Our session started with a private visit to the new and modern spa facilities. There are DIY scrubs to choose from, one of the most hypnotic steam rooms I’ve ever seen (the colour-changing lights on the ceiling were a lovely touch), a sauna overlooking the lush tropical garden, plus a shower room with a rain shower, Vichy shower bed and massage jets. Our 30 minutes was up all too quickly but set us up well for our treatments ahead.

We were led through to our couples’ room full of natural light. We both chose a 50-minute body massage (Himalayan salt stone for me and deep-tissue sports massage for him), followed by a 30-minute head and shoulder massage. Our experienced therapists knew exactly what they were doing and there’s a good chance one of us may have nodded off.

Wellness Cuisine

A huge part of visiting Vietnam is the food. Personally, I’d start every day with a cà phê sữa dá (Vietnamese iced coffee) if I could! As a health and wellness resort, I was curious to see the menu offerings. TIA Wellness Resort caters for all diets, from those on a full cleanse to those looking to indulge.

I was struck by the diversity of what was on offer at the breakfast buffet. There were vegan options and healthy wellness options (fresh spring rolls, chia puddings, protein balls and more) for those keeping it light. On the flip side, the traditional holiday treats — eggs, bacon, croissants and pastries were also available. Plus an al a carte option and made-to-order Vietnamese and barista coffees. Everything was delicious!

We also sampled the vegan lunch options at The Ocean Bistro. The poolside restaurant had a breezy, coastal feel to it and dished up innovative plant-based plates.

Private Pool Villas At TIA Wellness Resort

While we didn’t spend the night at TIA, we were treated to a sneak peek at its stunning private pool villas. No wonder the beachside pool was quiet — the villas are your own little sanctuary! With sleek and spacious interiors coupled with your own plunge pool, there’s little reason to leave. Well, except for those spa and wellness treatments!

Plus, if you miss the breakfast buffet you can order from the in-room dining menu at any time or snack from the included wellness-inspired mini bar.

Final thoughts on TIA Wellness Resort, Da Nang

Having visited Da Nang (and Vietnam in general) many times over the last decade or so I can safely say this is a property I’ll be coming back to. I particularly love that it caters for all wellness interests and mixed abilities. If you are someone looking to dive into cleanses, detox and daily yoga there are programmes available. At the same time if your travel companion is more interested in cocktails by the pool and a good massage they won’t be disappointed either.

I may already be planning a solo retreat for my next long weekend!
