Family Vacation Takes on New Meaning with Tết Traditions at Sheraton Grand Danang Resort & Convention Center

Families may spend many hours in close proximity, but between work, school and other activities, it’s difficult to attain real quality time and be truly present in the moment. For many in Vietnam, Tết is one of few, if not only times of the year where we can slow our pace and create memories that will be easy to recall years later and stand out from the blur of “normal life.” And while we can enjoy these moments anywhere, there are few places better than along the ocean.

Sheraton Grand Danang is one such oasis, located along Vietnam’s central coast and nestled at the confluence of Vietnamese character, equidistant between historic Hội An and modern Đà Nẵng.

While making sandcastles on the beach or splashing around in the 250m infinity pool, the city’s largest, are favorite familial pastimes, Sheraton Grand Danang’s team has crafted an extensive program of traditional Tết activities.

From the first (February 10) through the third day (February 13) of the Lunar New Year, younger guests can enjoy traditional Vietnamese arts and crafts activities. Conical hat painting and bracelet and lantern making will keep children entertained and tap into their creative whims. It’s an opportunity for young ones and their parents alike to maybe even make some new friends along the way. Each day will also provide guests with deeper insights into Tết traditions like cây nêu, a New Year tree in Vietnamese culture, made from a bamboo stalk, which has the effect of protecting and bringing peace to one's family.

The resort has also planned a diverse set of activities specifically related to each of the three days of Tết. Highlights of the program include a lion dance, walks on the monkey bridge, bamboo dancing, sack racing, ball/ring throwing, pottery breaking and stilt walking.

These varied and inclusive activities are sure to work up an appetite and Sheraton Grand Danang’s chefs have designed a number of Tết-themed menus – from a special Tết vegetarian set at Table 88 to Asian Gastronomy set menus at La Plage. The resort’s fine dining eatery, The Grill, offers fresh local seafood, prime steaks and an extensive wine list throughout the year.

While there’s plenty do experience on the property, families would be remiss not to take advantage of its proximity to Đà Nẵng. Lighthouses and banyan trees dot the city’s environs, and Bàn Cờ peak offers stunning views of Sơn Trà Peninsula’s beaches and immaculate sunsets.

Arts and culture highlights in the area include the Đồng Đình Museum which features a variety of artifacts from the area’s 20th-century fishing lifestyles, as well as cultural objects from ethnic minorities in the region. The city’s Fine Art Museum meanwhile houses hundreds of paintings, sculptures and carvings reflective of the region’s creative interpretations of history and local culture along with rotating special exhibits and collections on loan.

Works on display at the Da Nang Fine Arts Museum.

And of course, no visit to the area would be complete without a visit to one of Vietnam's most popular heritage destinations, the ancient trading center where merchants from all over the globe once congregated. In recent years, the town has been transformed into a vibrant UNESCO World Heritage site with traditional architecture; romantic, lantern-lit streets; shopping and some of the best food the country has to offer.

With everything from salt-kissed ocean breezes to a cornucopia of Tết activities, culinary offerings and access to Đà Nẵng and Hội An's rich cultural and natural landscapes, Sheraton Grand Danang provides families the ideal atmosphere to relax and add special moments to their scrapbook.
