Alma Resort, a 30-hectare oceanfront property on the Cam Ranh peninsula in southern Vietnam, was named the No. 1 family resort in Vietnam by the influential Australian-based Holidays with Kids magazine. The resort’s 12 “beautiful” swimming pools drew high praise in the editors’ review, which notes how the pools “cascade down to the beach” where a variety of exciting water sports are on offer.
“Families can enjoy the splash water park with its exhilarating slides, wave pool and lazy river,” the review continues. “There’s also a fantastic kids’ club and a youth club for teens with an abundance of activities to keep guests entertained.”
The Holidays with Kids Readers’ Choice Awards showcase the “best of the best” of family-friendly hotels and resorts in Australia and around the world. For a second-straight year, Alma won the top spot in the magazine’s ranking of Vietnam’s 10 best family resorts.
Alma’s managing director Herbert Laubichler-Pichler said the resort’s location overlooking the 15-kilometre-long Long Beach “couldn’t be better for family travelers.”
“Alma is truly one-of-a-kind with its unprecedented array of family facilities ranging from our 6,000 sqm water park with a lazy river, water slides, wave pool and kids pool, to our science museum, cinema, youth club, kids club, 18-hole putting green, sustainable farm and more. We offer all our guests the ultimate beach holiday,” he said.
Alma was also recognised earlier this year as the leading luxury beachfront resort in Vietnam by the Luxury Lifestyle Awards.
Situated on Vietnam’s emerging Cam Ranh peninsula fronting Long Beach, Alma resort commands some 30 hectares of inspiring ground. Emblematic of Vietnam‘s maturation as a destination, the bold and spacious integrated resort offers 580 oversized suites and pavilions that all afford sweeping vistas of the ocean, including contemporary three bedroom oceanfront pavilions each totalling 224sqm with a living room, four bathrooms and a private pool.
Alma features a broad spectrum of restaurants helmed by top chefs, a food court with an array of local and international cuisine, as well as a sports bar, pool bar and beach bar. Other highlights include 12 swimming pools cascading down to the beach, a waterpark, 13-treatment room spa, 75-seat cinema, convention centre, amphitheater, science museum, gymnasium and yoga room, 18-hole mini golf course, a youth centre with virtual reality games, a Kids club, water sports centre, a sustainable organic farm and even an ‘Alma Mart’ mini supermarket.
