Stayed at the Omni as part of a tour and found the hotel very good. It is a little bit out of town but not a problem as this made the rooms much quieter.
The food was good and we also enjoyed the spa at fair price. The rooms are quite comfortable, and there are amenities including the many fine-dining outlets, popular Irish pub Mulligan's, and fitness centre.
The breakfast buffet was extensive and the food of good quality, which applied also to the other eateries offered in the hotel. Staff were pleasant and efficient, though not especially friendly.
Situated about 15 minutes from the airport and about 25 minutes from the centre of town.

The Vinpearl Land, located on white sandy beaches of Hon Tre Island, is just 10 minutes by sea cruise to the luxurious five-star resort, off the South East Coast of the cultural and historic township of Nha Trang, Vietnam.
It is wonderful for families or young couples on a romantic holiday. Outstanding customer service, very clean and beautiful public areas and rooms, excellent food at reasonable prices, largest swimming pool in Vietnam, beautiful beach (but watch out for floating garbage), an adequate business centre, next to an amusement park good for young children, and a decent spa and beauty salon.

Nationals from some countries can enter Vietnam without a visa for certain period of time ranging from 15-90 days, such as Nordic and South East Asia. However, many travelers may wish to change their travel plan and stay in Vietnam longer than their given time. In this case, tourists need to apply for a visa while they are still in the country, and the fee they have to pay will be much higher than the normal one, around 50-70$ US.
So, keep in mind this problem when you plan your itinerary to Vietnam. It will save you a lot of money.
Laos is a mountainous and landlocked country located in the centre of Indochina. It has common borders with China, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Laos is 236,800 sq. km in land area, the major part being mountainous and forested. Geographically, the country is divided into three areas: the North, the Central and the Southern parts.
Laos is an adventurer’s paradise, offering treks to off the beaten track destinations that few tourists get to. It’s a country that receives relatively few visitors and that is one reason why it is so special and why we love it.
The first option would be air travel - there are several flights from Kansai Intl (KIX) to Sapporo (New Chitose - CTS). Flights depart at 16:45, 17:55, and 20:50. The price is 39,900 yen (US $335 at today's rate).
Another option is taking a ferry and train combination from Osaka to Hokkaido. Unfortunately, the ferry takes a lot of time - 19 hours one way, plus a couple of hours for the train. So flight seems to be the best option here.
