Swimming pools

Our rating:

If you get bored of salt water and sand, you’re in luck as Nha Trang has gone wild with swimming pools that range from simple plunge pools to full blown water parks. Get your speedos on.

There are three beachside swimming pools along Nha Trang’s main drag. Louisiane Brewhouse has a modestly sized rectangle pool while a few blocks south is Central Park with a large meandering pool and a swim-up bar. Both are completely free to the public to use. They make their money renting sunbeds, lockers, towels, food and drink. Ana Beach House, the beach club at Evason Ana Mandara, has a gorgeous swimming pool with an equally gorgeous view of the ocean, but the upscale experience will require you to plunge into your wallet. A day pass with use of sunbeds and towels is US$40; US$15 of it can be used towards food or beverage.

Mud baths have become a thing in Nha Trang and the experience isn’t just sitting in a tub of mud supposedly with healthy, healing properties. Three of Nha Trang’s four mud bath parks also have swimming pools, waterfalls and hot tubs for a full-day of hydrotherapy overload. Thap Ba Hot Spring is the cheapest and busiest. We’d recommend spending a little bit more if it’s within budget for 100 Eggs Mud Bath (Tram Trung). Not only will you get a laugh out of the egg-stravagant egg-themed egg-stravaganza, there were several different pools (including a children’s pool), jacuzzi and waterfalls. It’s a more civilised, tranquil experience than Thap Ba. Use of the swimming pool is 120,000 VND for adults, 60,000 VND for children. A mud bath in a private egg-shaped tub is 200,000 VND and it includes use of the pools.

100 Eggs is eight kilometres southwest of the city on Nguyen Tat Thanh Boulevard (T: (058) 3 711 733). A daily shuttle runs from Nha Trang Centre Shopping Mall (on Tran Phu Boulevard) at 08:55, 09:55, 10:55, costing 10,000 VND per person. The return shuttle is at 13:00, 15:00, 17:00, and costs 15,000 VND per person. The baths are open daily 08:00-18:00.

Another good mud bath/pool option is i-resort, eight kilometres north of the city (19 Xuan Ngoc, Vinh Ngoc; T: (058) 3 838 838). Here you also pay per activity/service. Access to the “mineral springs” is 120,000 VND. Contact them if you need shuttle service, which is priced at 20,000 VND per person, one-way.

Last but not least, Vinpearl Land’s waterpark brings out the kid in all of us. There are slides that zip down, slides that go round and round, a children’s splash pad/playground, along with a lazy river and a wave pool. The waterpark and cable car over to the island is included in the general admission, adults 600,000 VND, children 500,000 VND. To get there take city bus #4 (Hon Xen – Vinpearl) south to the end of the line, for 7,000 VND per ride.
