Since April, Vietnam will reveal a new luxury destination for travellers looking to get away from it all. The spectacular complex Anam will bring a whole new level of luxury to Cam Ranh’s northern peninsula. Nestled in the middle of a 3,000 palm tree plantation, the verdant Vietnamese property is sited on 12 acres near white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, and sweeping headlands.
Guests will be treated to an off-the-beaten path adventure far away from the bustling lights of Hanoi. A wide assortment of activities are available, including kayaking, snorkeling, motorbiking, and fishing in authentic Vietnamese coracles. This is topped off with sumptuous accommodation at the five-star beachfront property.
In total, there are 117 capacious villas and 96 well-appointed rooms and suites at The Anam (from $175 per night). Lanterns, mosaic tiles, stone pathways, imperial-style roofs, timber accents, and big-bellied water vases create a casual and traditionally Vietnamese ambiance to evoke the spirit of the exotic country’s bygone Indochine era. Vietnamese artwork and photography adorn the walls, giving visitors intimate glimpses into the nation’s history and culture.
The airy accommodations boast with king-size beds and bathrooms with deep soaking tubs, rain showers, and slate-gray stone tiles. The villas have ample private gardens as well as terraces or balconies, and 27 include personal swimming pools. There are also two private pool villas, each equipped with steam rooms and sunken granite Jacuzzis to allow guests to indulge without leaving their villas.
The resort has its own restaurant, which serves Vietnamese, Western, and European dishes such as lobster chowder and bay scallops wrapped in Italian pancetta with green peppercorn papaya salsa. The Beach Club offers casual weekly seafood barbecues at the oceanfront Beach Club. Three swimming pools, a fitness center, a tennis court, and a pool bar provide plenty of entertainment opportunities for much-needed R&R. The Balinese SPA has 10 treatment rooms, where guests can treat themselves to Nepalese-style tea exfoliation treatments, Bourbon tea body wraps.
