Ho Tram, Vietnam

Sanctuary is a luxury beach resort on the East Sea in Southern Vietnam. Only 105 km from Ho Chi Minh City, it is perfect for a weekend retreat or to begin your journey through Vietnam. The resort is right on the beach, with a harmonious backdrop of sea, sand and sun, ombining lush natural surroundings and innovative architecture to offer a unique opportunity for tropical living.

The resort features 28 luxury villas, each with a private pool and well-maintained gardens. Sanctuary’s villas have been built with an inside/outside living concept whereby large glass doors open up to create a flowing living space which effortlessly transforms from interior to exterior.

The small town of Ho Tram is located in the South of Vietnam, a comfortable hour and a half drive from Ho Chi Minh City. The region’s unique geography creates spectacular sunrises and sunsets by the beach, a rare feature in a country with a mainly East-facing coastline. Nearby attractions include our private beach, The Bluffs golf course, and the Ho Tram Casino.


Sandals’ chefs bring you local and western culinary delights, using only the best, locally-sourced ingredients. Our menu includes crisp salads, tender meats, fresh seafood and an assortment of wines and spirits.

In addition, we offer a variety of in-villa dining options from chef-cooked cuisine to fully catered dinner parties, without you leaving the comfort of your villa.
