Spa, beach, repeat
Fusion Maia Resort Danang’s all-inclusive spa packages mean two 50-minute treatments every day. Do your favourites first – maybe a body scrub and a Thai massage or a pedicure and a facial – then start getting adventurous with something like hot stone massage, bamboo rolling, reiki or crystal healing. Morning yoga and meditation are complimentary. The rest of the time, soak up the serenity at the beachfront pool cabanas. maiadanang.fusion-resorts.com
