Amanơi, Vietnam’s most exclusive hillside resort, backed by an expansive nature reserve on the south coastline of Vinh Hy Bay.
Combining the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’ with nơi, meaning ‘place’ in Vietnamese, Amanơi is a contemporary beachside resort with 31 guest pavilions (16 with private pools), five villas, the lakeside Aman Spa and a Beach Club. Set on the dramatic coastline of Vietnam’s Vinh Hy Bay, the property is embraced by Nui Chua National Park. The National Park is part of Ninh Thuan Province, renowned for its spectacular coastline and majestic mountain ranges. A marine reserve adjoins the National Park and is home to a large variety of sea corals, tropical fish species, hawksbill and green sea turtles. Located on a wide, mountainous promontory of the National Park, Amanơi lies 55 kilometres south of Cam Ranh Airport.
The resort’s spectacular Cliff Pool and the Central Pavilion housing the Restaurant, The Bar and a library are set on a hilltop with magnificent sea views, while the Beach Club, with its dining area and second swimming pool, flanks a private sandy beach. From its hillside position, all of Amanơi’s guest accommodations come with impressive views – of Nui Chua National Park, the lake on the property, Vinh Hy Bay and the East Sea. Identical in layout and design, each Pavilion offers a combined living and sleeping area, as well as a timber sundeck with sun loungers. The Aman Villas each consist of four or five free-standing bedroom pavilions, living and dining pavilions, and a large private swimming pool. A live-in housekeeper and cook meet all guests’ needs.
Set beside a lotus-filled lake, Amanơi’s Aman Spa provides five two-person treatment rooms, two hydrotherapy suites, outdoor relaxation pavilions and a finishing salon. Fitness options include a spacious, light-filled gymnasium, a Pilates studio and a lakeside yoga pavilion. There are also two outdoor tennis courts. Hugged by rolling, evergreen-covered hills, the resort looks over the East Sea and pristine Vinh Hy Bay, allowing guests a sense of peacefulness through the natural beauty at Amanoi.
