The spectacular coastline of Vietnam’s Ninh Thuan Province is the dramatic setting for Amanoi. Derived from the Sanskrit for “peace” and “noi” meaning place, it sits on a wide promontory of the Nui Chua National Park overlooking the white sands of the beach and the beautiful waters of Vinh Bay. The 55 kilometres drive from Cam Ranh Airport ends in a scenic journey through the National Park, which brings guests to Amanoi. Broad stairs lead up to the Central Pavilion which affords breath-taking views of the panorama below, making the arrival an unforgettable experience.
Situated on the hilltop, The Central Pavilion is home to The Restaurant and Terrace where the cuisine is a combination of delicious Vietnamese and Western dishes, prepared using only the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Also here are the Bar with a terrace which makes the most of the spectacular view, The Library which offers a place to relax with a book and The Boutique which sells traditional Vietnamese lacquerware and other handmade items.
This is the perfect resort in which to relax, with two beautiful swimming pools; one the Cliff Pool is close to the Central Pavilion while the other is at the Beach Club overlooking the white sandy beach. A range of water sports is available here with Hobie Cats and kayaks perfect for using to explore the caves and inlets around the bay. The sea of the Conservation area around Vinh Hy Bay teems with a myriad of fish and is renowned for its rare and beautiful corals, making it a paradise for snorkelers and scuba divers alike. Indeed fishing is the main industry in the bay and guests can walk or take a car to witness for themselves the bustle of daily life in the nearby village.
