Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, and Macau announced the winners of the Luxury Awards Asia-Pacific 2023 this month, revealing their readers’ picks of the best destinations, hotels, pools, spas, and hotel general managers.
The historic city of Hue, Vietnam’s former capital, was named among the top ten destinations in the region and Alba Wellness Valley by Fusion landed two sought after spots in the top ten lists.
Alba Wellness Valley by Fusion, a hot spring resort on the outskirts of Hue, came in as number three in the Top 10 Hotel Spas in Vietnam and placed number five in the Top 10 Upcountry Hotels.
The property is located on 50 hectares of lush grounds at the foot of the Truong Son mountains. Alba features a Japanese-style onsen with indoor and outdoor mineral-laden pools, along with rivers of healing thermal water that wind their way through the property. In addition to a tranquil spa, the resort offers a diverse menu of wellness activities daily, including Tai Chi, Yoga, and both water and walking meditation. It regularly hosts wellness experts to hold retreats and workshops.

The resort's general manager Eugene Hendriks said, “While we’re delighted to be recognised in two different categories in these prestigious awards, we’re just as excited that two destinations in Vietnam, Hue and Hanoi, landed in the Top Ten Cities list.”
“The imperial city of Hue is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a must-see for anyone interested in the history and culture of Vietnam. When paired with a stay at Alba, a property that highlights nature, wellness, and relaxation, we believe guests will have an unforgettable experience of the country. This incredible achievement reflects the team’s dedication to helping people live healthier, happier lives,” continued Hendriks.
Alba Wellness Valley by Fusion’s Wellness and Spa director Nyoman Yastama said, "We are proud of our Spa Team for this outstanding achievement. Our therapists have put in a lot of hard work and personal growth in order to deliver these highest standards of wellness to our guests."
