Why My An Hot Springs is special ?

The My An mineral spa is surrounded by attractive cultivated gardens extending over 18ha. It offers therapeutic mineral water treatments, and accommodation in large traditional houses. The complex is owned and run by the Hue-based Huong Giang Hotel Company with Japanese investment.


A pleasant 7km drive from Hue alongside the river takes you past several interesting pagodas and commune houses. The spa complex is set back from the road. The main pool, therapy area and accommodation are complete. A second phase including a reception area and a large restaurant is under construction for completion in 2005. As the area being developed is completely separate from the completed elements, a visit or stay is perfectly feasible.


The mineral water artesian spring rises from a depth of 150m at a surface temperature of 52˚C. As you approach the spring, you become aware of the characteristic ‘bad eggs’ smell of hydrogen sulphide. The water, cooled to 42˚C, feeds a large attractive swimming pool. Adjacent is a smaller pool surrounded by fresh water shower cubicles.

What to explore at My An Hot Springs?

The Spring

The mineral water artesian spring rises from a depth of 150m at a surface temperature of 52˚C. As you approach the spring, you become aware of the characteristic ‘bad eggs’ smell of hydrogen sulphide. The water, cooled to 42˚C, feeds a large attractive swimming pool. Adjacent is a smaller pool surrounded by fresh water shower cubicles.

The Water

The air around the pool is apparently charged with negatively charged particles (ions). Breathing it is believed to give relief to sufferers from certain allergies, such as allergic sinusitis and asthma. Bathing or swimming in the water is reputed to be beneficial for skin ailments, healing wounds, slowing the effects of aging, reducing the risk of strokes, helping breathing and relieving indigestion.

The Spa produces a gargle and mouthwash based on the spring water.

The intrepid inspection team acted as guinea pigs to see if the Spas assertion that the water is drinkable was true. The answer is ‘Yes – just about’, but it’s better if you hold your nose. Drinking the water is said to be good for indigestion, constipation and flatulence.

The Accommodation

Well away from the pool and the pong, are several traditional wooden houses in a peaceful setting facing attractive gardens. They are the genuine article, dismantled and rebuilt. They come in two sizes – three-bay and five-bay. Although all are built to the same standard design of a ridged and tiled roof supported by heavy ironwood pillars, each house has different features.

The rooms are very large – the three-bay house has plenty of room for two modern double beds, one in each side bay, and a large traditional Vietnamese bed (a hard wooden platform covered with a rush mat) in the centre bay. The five-bay version has two large doubles and two singles with the central bay as a sitting area.

The bathroom has both a standard bath and a spa bath. Each house has air-conditioning, telephone, television and other facilities. The furniture is Vietnamese – heavy carved wood, chairs with straight backs and level wooden seats, and so on.

Other Facilities

There is a small temporary restaurant near the main pool. It has a good Vietnamese menu arranged in set meals based upon the foods therapeutic properties, some accompanied with Vietnamese medicinal wine (if only all medicine was like that!). A wide range of international dishes can be cooked to order. The wine list is commendable.

There is a block of wooden cubicles for traditional Vietnamese massage. Future plans include developing and marketing special skin treatments.

The pool is available from 5am to 8pm. Locals can take the waters for a modest sum. An average thirty or forty people take advantage of the Spa’s facilities, but only in the early morning and evening - the rest of the time is all yours.

Visiting the Spa

This new venture offers comfortable, well-appointed accommodation in large tropical gardens and a permanently heated swimming pool. It’s quiet and out of the way. For someone interested in Vietnamese medicine, or wanting to benefit from the water’s therapeutic properties, it’s an obvious choice.

The My Ann Onsen Spa located outside of Hue quite a bit aways from the hotesl. I believe they have a resort with accomodation on site, but I didnt try it. Although looking around, I think this would be one of the nice to place to visit but not stay there kind of resorts. Expected to see hot bubbly sulphuric water coming out of the ground but it turned out to be a set of about 3 pools with varying degrees of temperatured waters, hot to hottest. Wasn't really a bad visit, and quite relaxing actually lazing in the hot water. Depending on the package you purchase, you can get a small dinner snack of hot soup and the reception can arrange a taxi for your return back to the hotel. Should be around US$7 - US$ 10 depending where you stay. A massage is also available on site, by a "DOCTOR", who didn't look to happy when I requested a massage and got slapped all over mostly. I was told there is another hot spring further out of town, I think its called Than Tan but havent tried it.
