Alma, a 30-hectare beachfront resort with a water park, science museum and 14 dining outlets, has clinched a coveted spot in a well-respected Australian magazine’s “Best Family Resorts Worldwide” list.
Holidays with Kids, part of the prestigious Signature Media Group, recently announced the winners of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards, which calls on its hundreds of thousands of readers to vote for their favourite resorts and hotels, holiday parks, and attractions.
Alma made the cut for the Holidays with Kids 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards Top 10 Best Family Resorts Worldwide category, coming in at third place.
Atlantis Dubai and Disney Hotel Paris took out the first and second placements respectively.
Alma’s managing director Herbert Laubichler-Pichler said his team was thrilled that the independently owned and operated resort has been recognised on the world stage for its awe-inspiring array of family-orientated attractions and services.
“There isn’t a better place for families to holiday in Vietnam than Alma, and this award is testament to that,” said Laubichler-Pichler. “We experience strong demand for multi-generational travel, welcoming families of up to four generations.”
He said the property had fast-gained a reputation as a premier family resort due to its host of facilities including Splash Water Park, a 6000sqm water park with a lazy river, water slides, wave pool and kid’s pool, as well as a science museum, cinema, youth club, kids club, 18-hole putting green and more.
“Our search for the very best (resorts for families around the world) … has taken us to theme parks in the UK, Paris and Hong Kong, beachside locations in Vietnam and the Maldives, luxury accommodation in New Zealand, game reserves in South Africa, and an underwater aquarium in Dubai,” Holidays with Kids said of the winners of the Best Family Resorts Worldwide list.
Alma was also deemed the winner of the Luxury Lifestyle Awards’ ‘Best Luxury Family Resort in Vietnam’ category in 2021, and was voted the winner of the Asia and Indian Ocean bracket of last year’s Luxury Travel Advisor’s ‘Most Instagrammable Hotel in the World’ competition, placing it in the poll’s top four resorts worldwide.
