Amanresorts makes its debut in Vietnam with a contemporary beachside resort alongside a full-service Aman Spa. Named for the Sanskrit-derived word for "peace" and noi meaning "place," Amano'i is a tranquil retreat situated on a beautiful white-sand beach overlooking spectacular Vinh Hy Bay. After a scenic drive through Nui Chua National Park, guests ascend a broad bank of stairs to Amanoi's Central Pavilion. On reaching the top, one experiences an unforgettable sense of arrival, as the panoramic views of the sea and coastline spread before one are simply breathtaking. Inspired by a traditional Vietnamese communal hall, the Central Pavilion occupies the hilltop and houses the Restaurant, Bar and an expansive terrace, all making the most of the breathtaking views. The resort's Library offers a range of reading materials in several languages, together with a music collection and board games. Next to the Central Pavilion is the Cliff Pool, one of two swimming pools. The second is located at the Beach Club which overlooks the white-sand beach and offers dining and lounging areas, as well as a range of water sports equipment. The resort's Aman Spa is a destination unto itself, set on a tranquil lake and surrounded by the National Park’s verdant hills. Amanoi's fitness options include a spacious, light-filled Gymnasium, a Pilates Studio and a lakeside Yoga Pavilion. There are also two outdoor tennis courts and a number of scenic walking, running and trekking routes on the property. Guest accommodation includes 31 Pavilions, a number with private swimming pools, and five Aman Villas, all positioned on the hillside with impressive views. The design of the Pavilions and Aman Villas fuses contemporary elegance with traditional Vietnamese architectural styles. Views are either of Nui Chua National Park, the lake on the property, or Vinh Hy Bay and the East Sea. Pavilions are identical in layout and design, and each offers a combined living and sleeping area, as well as a timber sundeck with sun loungers. Features include a king-size bed, sofa, writing desk, LCD TV with international channels, sound docking system, wireless Internet, mini-bar and espresso machine.
