IN VAR­I­OUS LAN­GUAGES, aman trans­lates as “peace”, “se­cu­rity”, “safety”, “shel­ter” or “pro­tec­tion”. But in­creas­ingly, it’s syn­ony­mous in English with “lux­ury re­sorts”. Amanoi is just one hour away from Cam Ranh In­ter­na­tional Air­port in Viet­nam. Like all the re­sorts in the Aman port­fo­lio, it’s an in­ti­mate re­treat with a fo­cus on well­ness. Just 31 vil­las are spread across 100 acres of land, giv­ing you com­plete pri­vacy when you need an es­cape. Set be­tween a na­tional park and a marine re­serve, you can com­pletely im­merse your­self in the un­touched wilder­ness. Or you can hide in your villa and en­joy the pri­vate pool – no judge­ment!

The ser­vice here is some of the best

I’ve ever ex­pe­ri­enced. Ev­ery­where I went, some­one was quick to of­fer sun­screen and wa­ter. (Of course, I still got burnt, but the well­ness cen­tre made me some sooth­ing aloe vera jelly from its plants, so I could head right back into the wa­ter.) From stand-up pad­dle­board­ing to beach vol­ley­ball, the re­sort has pretty much ev­ery wa­ter sport avail­able – and we made the most of it.

Un­like much of Viet­nam, May to Novem­ber is ac­tu­ally the dry sea­son here, so it’s a great time to visit. Make sure to wake up early, as each morn­ing Amanoi hosts a dif­fer­ent well­ness class on the lake – the per­fect way to start the day.
