Vietnam honeymoons and weddings
From incredible scenery and delicious food to fascinating culture, history and architecture, Vietnam has it all. Vietnam honeymoons are some of the most romantic in the world – and what’s more, they cost a lot less than many luxury honeymoons elsewhere! We’ve put together a guide to Vietnam honeymoons and weddings to help you decide where you’ll visit on your next trip, including some of our favourite luxury Vietnam resorts…
Best destinations for Vietnam honeymoons
Hoi An is popular with travellers thanks to its old world charm and fantastic blend of cultural influences. A mix of Chinese temples, Japanese bridges and French colonial houses, Hoi An’s atmosphere is one of a kind, as is the food. Don’t forget to pick up some new tailor-made clothing here!
Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi is a bustling and vibrant city packed with incredible food, sights and attractions. If you’re looking for a laidback, luxury honeymoon, then this might not be the destination for you, but for most travellers we recommend at least a couple of days in Hanoi.
This world-famous region of North East Vietnam is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and looking at it, it’s not hard to see why. Halong Bay is made up of thousands of islands set amid emerald green waters, and is home to Cát Bà National Park. This makes it a particularly good area for scuba diving, rock climbing and hiking, so perfect for adventurous honeymooners.
Also known at ‘The Alps of Vietnam’, this jaw-dropping region is home to Xuan Huong Lake and The Valley of Love – so where better to visit for a Vietnamese honeymoon? Based in South Central Vietnam, Dalat is best visited in the spring and summer, and boasts some seriously Instagrammable sights.
When to visit Vietnam
The best time to plan your Vietnam honeymoon or wedding depends on which area you’d like to visit, as this can vary massively.
For Northern Vietnam, we recommend travelling in April to May or September to October, as the weather is best around this time. We don’t recommend visiting from December to March as the temperatures drop considerably.
For Central Vietnam, we recommend January to June. The temperatures soar from May to August, making it too hot to travel, and there’s a lot of heavy rain in October and November.
The best conditions for Southern Vietnam are in January to April, but the weather is generally good year-round. Expect higher rainfall in May to November.

Romantic resorts for Vietnam honeymoons
For a truly secluded honeymoon, why not disappear to the lush green bay where Six Senses Ninh Van Bay is hidden away? This luxurious 5-star resort is only reachable by boat ride from Nha Trang, which gives you the impression that you’re on your own private island. You certainly won’t want to leave your incredible villa accommodation, whether you choose a Beachfront Villa set by the sea or a Hill Top Villa with breathtaking views of the bay. The resort boasts three mouthwatering restaurants, as a well as a wine cave and cocktail bar, and you can indulge in some post-wedding pampering thanks to the spa’s treatment and yoga pavilions with sea views.
With an unbeatable location on the Hoi An beach, The Nam Hai is made up of 100 spacious, chic villas, each with views of the white sand beach and pristine waters. Some villas even include private pools and butler service for that luxury Vietnam honeymoon experience. This 5-star resort features four bars restaurants with a range of cuisines, or you can arrange for private dining in your villa or a beach barbecue with a private chef. Apart from the location, the real draw here is the Heart of the Earth spa, which offers classic spa treatments as well as wellness services and relaxation experiences.
A 5-star Aman resort set on Vietnam’s South East coast, Amanoi feels more like a mountain-top shrine than a hotel. The resort is set on the coast of Nui Chua National Park, a natural conservation site, which makes it ideal for wildlife-lovers who want to explore the flora and fauna. Each of the 31 incredibly-decorated Pavilion rooms comes with a fabulous view of either the mountain, forest, lake or East Sea, and the unique location means Amanoi benefits from its own microclimate. The Aman Spa is set on a lotus-filled lake and offers a whole host of innovative treatments as well as an immersive wellness program. Take advantage of the complementary classes in the yoga pavilion before enjoying delicious food at one of the two restaurants.
Getting married in Vietnam
If you’re looking at the stunning scenery of Vietnam and thinking it would make a once-in-a-lifetime destination wedding location, you’re not wrong. After all, what better way to start your honeymoon than with a destination wedding? However, due to the sheer amount of paperwork and legalese involved, we recommend that couples book a celebrant-led ceremony in Vietnam and sign any legal paperwork in a UK register office.
Vietnam is a stunning choice for a vow renewal or destination celebration, and luckily all of the resorts mentioned above offer beautiful wedding packages that can be personalised to suit you.
