Located midway between the old town and kilometers of pristine beaches, Hoi An Chic is set amongst the rice paddy fields of a rural village. From the comfort of your balcony or our restaurant bordering the rice fields, you can observe the daily activities of the local villagers. Although only minutes from the old town via our free US army jeep shuttle service, the rural outlook and serenity of the hotel’s location is the perfect tonic to the hustle and bustle of the old town.
Staying at Chic hotel allows you to be more connected to nature and the local community. As the seasons change so does the view from the hotel. The rice fields maybe in full bloom of vivid green or the local ladies wearing the conical hats are hard at work harvesting the rice.
The rice fields surrounding Chic has two growing seasons. From January to the beginning of May and from early June to the middle of October. From the beginning of each of these seasons the rice grows from tiny transplanted pods of green into a sea of vivid green towards the end of the period. In between those seasons the earth lays fallow as some of the rice husks are tilled back into the soil for fertilizer. Although not as beautiful as a sea of green, there is still much local life to observe.
Awake to birds singing in the trees and the ducks quacking as they search for snails in the fields. Watch the locals as they lead the buffalo to the fields, and school children ride their bicycles to school.
