Meaning “peace place” in Sanskrit, the newly opened Amano’i in Vietnam is for those who treasure tranquility, top-notch spas and white-sand beaches. But who likes that kind of stuff? Sandwiched between the sandy shores of Vinh Hy Bay and the granite cliffs of Nui Chua National Park on the eastern coast of Vietnam, this latest property from Aman Resorts is home to 31 guest pavilions, an infinity pool, romantic pavilion rooftops and lots of rustic timber. If you upgrade to an Aman Villa, the top tier room type, you’ll also enjoy a live-in housekeeper who will prepare food as you paddle around in your private pool. And when you’re not lapping up the luxury, ask about one of the outdoor excursions, such as Hobie cat outings, snorkeling expeditions or a hike through the forest, which is packed with 160 bird species and 60 types of mammals. Even the forest has bragging rights!
