Thien Thanh was our first stop on our five-week holiday in South-East Asia, and it couldn't have been a better introduction to such a wonderful and vibrant culture. The romantic, wholesome and colourful vibe of Hoi An was chrystallised in Thien Thanh - a charming and idyllic boutique hotel. Its serenity and slight removal from the central tourist hub was great, as it felt totally serene - heightened by the large balcony and dining area that hovers above the rice paddies.
The staff were nothing but gracious and kind and our room was incredibly beautiful and remarkably good value - spacious, comfortable and with an airy balcony. The freshwater pool, although freezing, served as a wonderfully refreshing end to those steamy Hoi An days. Also the spring rolls that the kitchen made were probably the best we had on our trip.
Perhaps, though, Thien Thanh was most unforgettable due to our host, Anh. She was incredibly cheeky, helpful and friendly with a wicked sense of humour to boot - we got on very well and she always seemed genuinely interested to learn about the type of people we were, and what we'd been up to that day.
If you're looking for an idyllic boutique hotel for good value that's a bit removed from the oft-touristy chaos of Hoi An, this is the place for you! More
