This beautifully preserved heritage house seamlessly blends vintage Vietnamese accents with crisp, modern design for the most charming atmosphere to unwind over coffee or wine.

7. Naia Cafe

At last, I’m so excited to let you my dreamiest little coffee spot in all of Hoi An – the absolutely enchanting Naia Cafe. Just picture this: a modern and charming little cafe with sprawling grassy lawn that spills right out onto the shores of Hoi An’s beach. It’s the kind of effortlessly romantic, “plucked-from-a-postcard” setting that Vietnamese beach town fantasies are made of!

Located on Nguyen Phan Vinh street, Naia offers the perfect laid-back escape from the bustle of the Ancient Town. The sweet little cafe itself is utterly charming, but truthfully, it’s that sweeping seaside lawn that steals the show. Can you imagine anything more idyllic than spending a lazy afternoon here with your travel buddy? Sprawling out on some cozy floor cushions, sipping icy Vietnamese coffee drinks, and lazily chatting the day away as the ocean waves provide the most blissful white noise backdrop.

While their food and drink menus are fabulous (the fresh juices and smoothies are refreshing!), for me the real deal is just inhabiting this blissful little seaside oasis. It’s like the cafe has bottled up Hoi An’s dreamy, off-the-beaten-track charms and serves it up in space so nurturing for the soul.

So whether you’re a salty beach bum or a cafe connoisseur, add Naia to your Hoi An to do list. An afternoon spent here will leave you utterly at peace, recharged and falling deeper in love with this small town!
