"The essence of #design is the juxtaposition between architectural components and the boulders, vegetation and views. There is an ever-present contrast between the drama of the site and the refined architectural language" says Jean-Michel Gathy - the architect of #Amanoi. Curves mimic organic shapes such as the s-bend of the pool which echoes the shoreline metres away, or simple straight lines subtly marks the resort's presence in the wilderness.
Stepping away from everyday life to relax and return restored is no longer seen as an indulgence – it is a necessity in this fast-paced world. The chance to learn something new – breaking free from known routines and providing an enriching growth experience is also being increasingly recognised as key to renewed focus and stress release. With this in mind, #Amanoi has expanded its wellness offering with the introduction of five new holistic retreats. Cocooned in a pristine natural environment, its remote location encompassing a secluded white-sand beach, a lotus-strewn lake and cliffs plunging into the #EastSea, the resort provides a host of settings in which to pursue wellness goals, learn a new skill such as Qigong, and enjoy a peaceful pause #AmanWellness #AmanResorts #Vietnam

In the celebration of Tet - Lunar New Year, Vietnamese families love decorating their homes with some graceful pots of flower. At Amanoi, we place the charming chrysanthemums at the arrival hall to wish for prosperity and joy in the new year. With its round shape and bright yellow shade, this flower is an essential element in Feng Shui and is believed to bring longevity and luck.
At Amanoi, we are lucky to be a part of the unique semi-arid vegetation area of Nui Chua National park. Located on a promontory bordering a marine park with coral reefs, the park protects an impressive intact biodiversity, including 72 mammal species, 181 bird species and sea turtle nesting beaches.
"I was fortunate to spend a special birthday at Amanoi. What makes this place stands out is the location ... beautiful villas perched on the cliffs in a national park. Views and sunrises are stunning!!! Definitely worth getting the ocean pool villas. And of course the staff was amazing -- I had an issue when first arrived and they bent over backwards to fix the situation. And the food was absolutely delicious; from the main restaurant to the beach 'bar'. I would like to call myself an Aman Junkie and would say that this property is in my top 3 list of Aman properties. Must visit!"_ Review by Nicole on TripAdvisor

"Ensconced in the luxury of my spacious villa, I decided to take a late afternoon dip in my own private pool. It was a contemplative moment as I saw the fiery orange sun dip below the lush green mountains in the distance while a flock of egrets flew over the Lotus Lake right in front of my villa" _ quoted from a 4-page 'story' at Amanoi told by Luxurious Magazine
