What springs to mind when you think of Spain? Perhaps it's flamenco dancers, thrilling bullfights, or the robust red wines of Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. If you're a film enthusiast, you might visualize Spain's stunning landscapes, like those showcased in the iconic movie "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" — the majestic La Sagrada Família, La Pedrera's unique rooftop, or the art-filled Fundació Joan Miró museum.

Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, enticing scenery, rich culture, and exquisite cuisine, Spain draws more than 80 million travelers each year. Yet, If you can't cross 10,762 kilometers with multiple transit points to reach Madrid, Barcelona or Mallorca to experience Spain's elegance and charm, there’s a place in Vietnam that offers a taste of it.

Encapsulating the essence of Spanish architecture, gastronomy, and hospitality, bringing it to the beach city of Nha Trang, Gran Meliá is like a Spanish oasis in the heart of Vietnam.

Immerse yourself in contemporary European architecture

European-style architecture leans towards simplicity in layout and space, putting less emphasis on symmetrical layouts and ornate details seen in classical designs. Buildings created in this style capitalize on modern materials such as glass and innovative forms of concrete, exuding a sturdy, elegant aesthetic.

One defining feature that sets European-style homes apart is the soft, alluring curves. When woven into a modern framework, these curves not only harmonize the space but also serve as intriguing focal points. You'll notice them in rounded gypsum ceiling corners, arched decorative lamps, or inviting sofa sets.

Nestled on one of Vietnam's most exquisite beaches and surrounded by precious coral reefs, Gran Meliá Nha Trang exhibits a design heavily inspired by nature. Its interiors boast furnishings from prestigious European brands, such as the Italian furniture maker Minotti and the luxury bathroom brand Carner Barcelona®.

Gran Meliá Nha Trang houses 272 guest rooms, including 94 contemporary villas, each with a private pool harmoniously integrated into the natural setting. Every villa offers extensive dining areas and generous indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Savor a World of Cuisine: Mountains to Beaches

Spain is revered as a culinary titan, noted for inventive techniques, audacious culinary experiments, and high-grade ingredients. It's the origin of many world-renowned chefs, including Martín Berasategui, the holder of 12 Michelin stars.

Spanish cuisine upholds the importance of fresh, locally harvested, and seasonal goods. It is also renowned as a haven for different varieties of olives, and the use of olive oil is central to its cuisine. Moreover, the nation is celebrated for producing some of the world's most esteemed wines, particularly Sangria, a delightful red wine and fruit concoction.

A cornerstone of culinary principles at Gran Meliá Nha Trang is to provide an authentic and high-end Spanish gastronomic experience. Key Spanish staples such as olive oil, ham, wine, and cava are always on offer, served at their prime. Chef Marcos Morán, from the Hispania restaurant, crafts dishes with a creative flair that pay homage to Spanish culture, perfectly paired with a high-end wine selection.

In addition to Hispania, Gran Meliá Nha Trang also houses other restaurants like Natura, Shibui, Sal, and Theia, paying homage to the rich culinary traditions of Japan and the Mediterranean, with fresh local ingredients, served in an atmosphere of refined elegance.
