This splendid Aman resort is set in Nui Chua National Park, 55km south of Cam Ranh Airport. Serenely positioned on a forested hillside, the resort is surrounded by mountains that roll down to the pristine coastline of Vinh Hy Bay, where an array of marine life including delicate corals, turtles and tropical fish awaits. While the remarkable surroundings of this ecologically unique pocket of the country may embrace nature in its wildest form, the resort itself offers its guests the ultimate in contemporary luxury. The 31 Guest Pavilions and five Aman Villas are designed to blend in with their surroundings and their curved roofs peek out above the treeline, with amazing views of the national park, Vinh Hy Bay and the mesmerising East Sea beyond. Some residences feature private pools and all draw on the simplicity of Vietnamese design but with a contemporary twist. Open-plan living and sleeping areas are complemented by a spa-like bathroom, while king-size beds, timber sundecks with comfy loungers, and modern conveniences like Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations complete the amenities. The extensive line-up of facilities at this designer resort includes a library, two swimming pools, tennis courts, a Pilates studio and gym, lakeside yoga pavilion and a decadent spa set beside the resort’s central, lotus-filled lake. A grand, central pavilion houses a fabulous restaurant and bar with an expansive terrace which makes the most of Amanoi’s breathtaking views.
