Fusion Suites Vung Tau
It's safe to say that 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone. With routines disrupted, travel restricted and finances strained, taking the time to relax, recharge and refresh your mind set is even more important than usual!
With this in mind I welcomed the opportunity to escape the city for a weekend, and took the chance to celebrate my daughter’s birthday with a family trip to Vung Tau. Within easy reach of Ho Chi Minh City but with enough things to do to keep the kids entertained, Vung Tau is a popular choice for a weekend break among Saigon’s expat and local community. Perhaps, not this weekend though, as a storm was forecast and as we arrived on the coast, Vung Tau bay was certainly looking a little less busy and a little more choppy than you would usually find.
Luckily, we had been invited to spend the weekend at Fusion Suites Vung Tau and as soon as we arrived I felt confident that even if the weather was not going to be friendly to us, we would still have a fantastic time.
Conveniently located 300 meters from the Back Beach, on Truong Cong Dinh Street, Fusion Suites is a modern resort designed with modern travellers and families in mind. It offers comfortable, stylish suites, studios and apartments to suit all your needs and we were treated to a very friendly welcome by the resort staff when we arrived to check in.
Our comfortable Double Room was perfect for a family of four and offered stunning views over the bay from the balcony. Located within a few kilometres of most of Vung Tau’s main tourist sights and attractions Fusion Suites is well located if you want to explore the city, however, with the clouds rolling in and the wind picking up, I was also happy to see a spacious lounge and wide screen tv, in case an afternoon exploring had to be replaced by an afternoon watching movies inside!
Of course, as a 5-star resort, Fusion Suites also has excellent facilities for you to enjoy if relaxation is the aim of your visit. With complimentary spa treatments available for guests, you know that your body and mind are well taken care of here. But I suspect for many people the highlight of a visit to Fusion Suites is the Infinity Sky Pool that not only offers spectacular views of the city, but would be a lovely place to enjoy and drink and something to eat after an afternoon exploring.
Although we were able to sample the delicious food and drinks on the rooftop later that day, we had to wait until the next morning when the storm had run its course to take full advantage of the pool. Watching the sun beginning to shine brightly over the hills and the bay of Vung Tau and taking in the stunning panoramic views of the city, I felt totally relaxed and re-energised. And as my daughter had thoroughly enjoyed a luxurious birthday treat, I felt that perhaps I had found the perfect weekend getaway for anyone who wants a break from Saigon!
