The former Fusion Maia Da Nang, built in 2008 as a spa-inclusive resort in Vietnam, emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic as TIA Wellness Resort. Raising the bar on wellness, the resort enters the New Year with a new app, a new gym, a new roster of complimentary classes and healthy culinary options.
Perched on white sands between the port city of Da Nang and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hoi An, the property debuted as TIA Wellness Resort in March 2021. It has 87 private pool villas ranging from one to three bedrooms, plus a 22-room wellness center located in the middle of the property.
Good to know: Nearly half of the property’s menus consist of plant-based dishes. Guests can dine at two outlets, besides all-day breakfast and in-room dining options. As well, the resort’s wine list was refreshed during the pandemic and the team recently launched a fully organic and biodynamic, sustainable wine list that includes over 40 different international varieties.
What to know: The resort has created “Wellness Inclusive” and “Retreat Inclusive” stay options. Guests can avail of two spa therapies per day, besides a range of wellness activities including yoga, Tai Chi and breathwork classes. A personal wellness guide ushers “Retreat Inclusive” guests through their stay on a program that includes all the “Wellness” offerings, along with full board plant-based meals and more specialized retreat therapies, exclusive to “Retreat” guests.
TIA Wellness Resort’s custom-built app is set to debut in April this year. It acts as a digital wellness guide that guests can initiate prior to arrival, follow during the stay and afterwards. It also serves as a concierge to personalize guests’ wellness experience.
Each personalized stay is divided into two categories: “Stillness” and “Splash.” The first focuses on cultivating inner stillness and self-connection, while the latter helps guests to make a creative splash and embrace self-expression. Daily creativity workshops, part of both offerings, help guests express and release emotions via guided art activities.
In addiiton, this year, the resort’s poolside gym will undergo a renovation to further embody the “Stillness” and “Splash” concepts. A new 1,076-square-foot gym will be added to create two spaces for both endeavors. The class schedule will expand to include robust practices to complement the current selection of yoga, breathwork, Tai Chi and creativity classes, which are held each day and open to all guests.
All 60 wellbeing therapists are trained in Reiki. The resort offers a range of therapies including singing-bowl healing, meridian-point treatments, aromatherapy massages, Himalayan stone therapy, nourishing wraps using local ingredients, and cleansing scrubs and facials.
