Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi and The Nam Hai in Hoi An have been ranked among the top five hotel spas in the world by the US Travel&Leisure (TL) Magazine readers.
The honour was part of the 2013 World’s Best Awards, the 18th annual survey by the world’s highest circulating magazine of the finest “hotels, destinations and companies that define the very best in travel”.
The Metropole punctuated its achievement by making the grade in two other categories, including Top 100 Hotels at No. 52 and Best City Hotels in Asia at No. 5, three grades higher than last year.
The Nam Hai ranked fourth in the Top 10 Hotel Spas category and the central coastal resort took 12th in the Best Resorts in Asia. This is the first time The Nam Hai has won a World’s Best Award of any kind.
Spa rankings are based on readers’ ratings for ambience, treatments, service, facilities and value, while hotel rankings are based on ratings for rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food and value.
The results of the World’s Best Awards survey is the cover story of the August issue, on news stands in North America from July 19.
