Although Vietnam never has been on our priority list of destinations, we planned a trip up here the moment we heared about the new Aman Resort property here. Amano’i is located along the west coast of the country along Vinh Hy Bay and near Vietnamâ€™s largest conservation sites, the Nu Chua National Park.
There are 31 guest pavilions (we are staying in number 11 with amazing private pool), and five Aman Villas (with freestanding bedroom pavilions, a dining pavilion and a living pavilion, private pool and comes complete with a live in housekeeper and cook) all positioned on the hillside with impressive views.
Amano’i has been stunningly designed by Jean-Michel Gathy mixing contemporary elegance with traditional Vietnamese architectural styles. Gathy is a fellow Belgian and a world renowed hotel architect. The Setai in Miami, One & Only Retih Rah in the Maldives, the Marina Sands hotel in Singapore and a number of Aman Resorts properties too like the just opened Aman Grand Canal in Venice.
Stay tuned for more sensational pictures of Amano’i!
