Journey towards mindful awareness
Start where you are
Gratitude Vietnam at a glance
Dear Friends, as the pandemic impacted tourism in Vietnam so heavily we have had to close Gratitude Vietnam. Gratitude Worldwide now exists as a company, and the hope is to open a retreat in Europe in the coming year or so. If you like what you see here, please join the mailing list for updates on progress towards the next chapter. Thank you for your love and support. With gratitude and love, Naomi and Hannah
Welcome to Gratitude Vietnam, a welcoming, eco-friendly oasis of total relaxation, peace and tranquility.
With a pool, 8 ensuite bedrooms, meditation room, garden, and purpose-designed outdoor space sheltered from the elements, the villa is perfect for hosting healing retreats or accommodating large groups for a private holiday or event.
We can take care of every part of your journey, making sure everything is as you’d like it to be.
Simply tell us what you need, and we’ll do the rest.
Retreats, training and private holidays
Whether you want to journey internally or explore the beautiful surroundings, we invite you to join us. However long your stay, you’ll leave with a truly memorable experience.
With eight ensuite bedrooms, we can comfortably accommodate up to 15 people.
Looking for a tailored group or private retreat? Simply contact us to tell us what you need.
Our villa is a purpose-built space for private retreats, events and boutique holidays. As such, we can accommodate a wide variety of bookings.
The retreat facilities include space and equipment for group yoga, creative activities, meditation and presentations. We can tailor your booking to your unique requirements – just contact us with your wish-list.
There’s plenty to do beyond the villa and we’d love to share our knowledge of the surrounding area with you. We can recommend places to visit, help to customize your experience to suit to your group. All activities (whether cultural, active, exploratory or historical) will be led by an English-speaking guide, and include private transport.
As retreat hosts ourselves, we understand the need for you to be able to focus on your participants, and we will work with you in advance of your stay to ensure that every detail is taken care of and that we have the equipment you need.
We can also organize private retreats. Or, simply pick and choose certain elements to include in your stay.
Wellness in Hoi An
Hoi An is a blossoming hub for wellness, yoga, meditation and wellness in Asia.
This beautifully conscious community offers a diverse range of talented practitioners and we are delighted to offer a range of quality workshops and 1:1 healing therapies with a range of available onsite extras such as massages to compliment your holiday or retreat.
The villa combines Vietnamese culture with western comforts to give you a relaxing, boutique home-from-home.
Vietnamese architects Cong and Phuong Nguyen designed the villa, transporting the late 19th century wooden columns and structure of an ancient building that belonged to a senior officer of the Nguyen Dynasty, over 120km from Hue. They then lovingly reconstructed the traditional wooden frame in its new home, before incorporating a modern twist to create a beautiful and unique space with eight ensuite bedrooms.
We strive to be zero-waste and single use plastic-free, and invite you to support us in reducing local environmental issues as we work towards a Gold Award with Travelife to benchmark our commitment.
We understand that food is an integral part of any retreat. That’s why we provide nourishing, beautiful, buffet-style meals that will bring a smile to your face and leave your belly feeling satisfied.
Where possible, all ingredients are locally sourced, farm-to-table and unprocessed. Aside from the occasional chunk of chocolate, all our dishes are refined-sugar free, and we strive to meet all dietary requirements.
Currently, we are only able to cater for transformational and hosted retreats, however we provide a delicious locally sourced granola and seasonal breakfast for all guests, and can offer a fabulous list of recommended restaurants to eat out in Hoi An, or for delivery.
An idyllic location
Based on the central coast in the beating heart of Vietnam, the villa is 50 minutes from Danang International Airport, and just a short bike-ride from the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site, Hoi An old town.
Set in a beautiful secluded garden on the river-island of Cam Nam, our villa gives you a quiet sanctuary to escape the hustle and bustle, yet it’s perfectly positioned to explore the area.
The province has it all, offering you a culturally rich and diverse range of activities. From scuba diving, cooking classes and cycling through paddy-fields, to lazy beach days or exploring the architectural wonders of the ancient town, you can do as much or as little as you wish.
Whatever your interests, we can help you organize a trip to remember. For inspiration, we’ve put together a list of suggested activities.
Or, if there’s something else you’d love to see or do, just let us know and we’ll endeavor to arrange it on your behalf. As well as local excursions, we can also facilitate yoga classes, 1:1 reiki, on-site massage, various meditations and mindful activities.
