If you want a beach vacation without the crowds, this list features the top resorts for ocean views, great restaurants, high-end spa, exceptional service, and glamorous sunsets.

Whether you are a beach lover, a couple looking for a romantic getaway, or honeymooners planning a dream Vietnam vacation, here are the most gorgeous beach resorts that can make you feel like living a blissful life.
