Serving exquisite Vietnamese cuisine – renowned for its use of fresh herbs – as well as refined international dishes, each is open to both guests and non-residents. Private dining in spectacular outdoor settings can also be arranged.
The Restaurant and Terrace
From its hilltop perch, the Restaurant offers all-day dining celebrating the fragrant flavours of Vietnamese cuisine.
With a menu that makes the most of seasonal market produce and the daily catch from local fishing boats, the columned, air-conditioned interior spills onto a terrace with sweeping views of the dramatic coastline.
The Beach Club
Down beside the golden-sand shore, a short stroll from the sea, the Beach Club is backed by huge granite boulders with a shaded dining area and deck overlooking the pool. Open for lunch, as well as poolside drinks and snacks throughout the day, a specialty is freshly grilled fish.
Looking out over Nui Chua National Park from beneath the eaves of the Central Pavilion, the Bar is a relaxing atmospheric space drawing design inspiration from traditional Vietnamese teahouses.
With local art and photography on the walls and distant mountain views, it is a comfortable, contemplative space in which to sink into a leather armchair and sip a house cocktail.
Wellness & Fitness at Amanoi
On the shores of a lake dotted with lotus blossoms, the Aman Spa is a place to balance mind and body, where specialist therapists design personalised wellness programmes and deliver a wide range of Vietnamese and international treatments in a peerlessly serene and scenic setting.
Two secluded Wellness Villas serve as utterly private extensions of the Spa.
Globally renowned specialists
Throughout the year, Amanoi’s residency programme draws an international roster of holistic health experts and wellbeing practitioners to the spa.
Alongside the in-house team of therapists, these specialists share knowledge and insight of the latest healing techniques and research through a limited-edition programme of retreats and experiences.
Amanoi Spa Programs
Amanoi’s Individual Wellness Immersions and half- or full-day spa programmes are designed to promote profound change.
Ensuring palpable results and a deep sense of inner peace, they are carefully calibrated to boost immunity, shift unwanted weight, renew focus and spiritual connection, or promote internal balance and overall wellbeing for a longer, healthier life.
Amanoi Spa offers two private hydrotherapy suites, each featuring a heated stone treatment table, steam room, Jacuzzi and cold plunge pool.
These may be booked with or without a treatment. To bolster the immune system, we highly recommend a body exfoliation followed by time in the steam room, the Jacuzzi and the cold plunge pool.
Amanoi’s pair of one-bedroom Wellness Villas are ideal for guests wishing to bring the resort’s wellbeing experience to the convenience of their own accommodation.
Each benefit from dedicated therapists and integrated spa facilities, including treatment rooms, steam rooms, plunge pools, Jacuzzis and private pools, as well as a banya or hammam.
Personally tailored Wellness Immersions
Designed specifically to meet guests’ individual health and wellbeing goals, Amanoi’s bespoke Wellness Immersions are holistic, restorative retreats incorporating movement and bodywork, nutrition, mindfulness and spa therapies.
Lasting from three to 21 days, each spa retreat is developed to deliver defined, palpable results, to promote a lasting sense of inner peace, and to encourage profound, meaningful change in lifestyle and outlook.
Weight Management & Transformation
In the holistic philosophies of the East, disruptions in the flow of qi can lead to the imbalances in bodily systems, causing weight gain.
Amanoi’s weight-management Immersion combines this energy-focused perspective with a prescribed exercise and nutrition programme, concentrating on improving metabolism, digestion and the movement of fluid through the body to achieve an optimal healthy weight.
Built around the unique physiology and weight goals of the guest, the Immersion’s itinerary alternates movement sessions designed to stimulate metabolic activity and burn fat with herbally enhanced spa treatments and wellness therapies focused on boosting the effectiveness of the body’s digestive, lymphatic and circulatory systems.
In parallel, a personalised nutrition programme supports healthy, sustainable weight loss.
Detox & Cleansing
Cast off impurity, negativity and emotional clutter with a personalised pathway to a refreshed body and mind.
Formulated exclusively to sustain the physiological and emotional equilibrium of the individual guest, Amanoi’s Detox Immersion uses a bespoke combination of movement, massage spa therapies and nutrition to restore and enhance personal wellbeing.
Lasting from three days to three weeks, this individually tailored programme begins with a in-depth personal consultation to identify sources of toxicity, emotional obstacles and self-damaging behaviours – then uses a programme of targeted treatments and practices to eliminate them.
Participants can expect a tailor-made holistic programme of yoga, breath work and relaxation, teamed with physical therapies including massage and acupuncture, to release toxicity and tension, and promote lasting healthy living.
Mindfulness & Stress Management
It can be difficult to remain grounded in a fast-paced world. This mindfulness Immersion is designed to helps guests slow down and find moments of stillness in their everyday lives, encouraging a sense of connectedness and peace.
Through guided meditation classes, mindful movement practices and tailored nutrition, Amanoi’s programme takes a holistic approach to internal wellbeing in order to build lasting resistance to stress.
Personally designed in response to an in-depth lifestyle consultation, this programme uses specialist movement classes including yoga, Qi Gong and tai chi to help participants physically relax.
Alongside, expert-led meditation and spa treatments that soothe the central nervous system work to release tension and cultivate lasting harmony between body and mind.

Taking place at sunset ideally, on the shores of Vinh Hy Bay or high above with the entire coastline seemingly at your feet, this meaningful blessing invites happiness, joy and prosperity into life together.
Vietnamese Buddhist blessing ceremonies can also be arranged, followed by a celebratory dinner beneath the star-filled sky. Receptions, whether intimate or grand, showcase exquisite Vietnamese, French and international cuisines – and every detail of your big day is taken care of by Amanoi’s experienced events team.

The resort’s Villas and infinity pools with staggering ocean views vie for attention with the rolling hills of the National Park: No matter where you choose, the backdrop is mesmerising.
Then, after a day spent snorkelling pristine reefs, summiting Goga Peak or rejuvenating in the Aman Spa, dine and dance the night away as shooting stars crisscross the night sky.

Trekking the coastline
Hugged by hills, Amanoi is a gateway to the 29,000-hectare Nui Chua National Park which sits within the Nui Chua Unesco Biosphere Reserve – a rugged wonderland of diverse landscapes where hikers are rewarded with sweeping panoramas and myriad wildlife at every turn.
From the resort, the network of trails can lead guests on family-friendly rambles to picnics on secret beaches, or more challenging treks to the rock formations of Bai Da or the bay-view drama of Goga Peak.
Fringing the bay, a kingdom of coral awaits between the waves. Explore the pristine reefs on a guided snorkelling expedition, and discover more than 350 varieties of staghorn, plate and brain corals found in the Vinh Hy Bay conservation area, as well as colourful shoals of tropical fish including triggerfish, angel fish, trumpet, damsel and bat fish that make their home here.
Or glide over the surface of Vinh Hy Bay in one of Amanoi’s “glass” bottom kayaks. Made from durable, lightweight, shatter-resistant polycarbonate, the kayaks are completely transparent, allowing you to see whatever sea creatures happen to be swimming beneath you.
Journeys in the lost kingdom
Discover the ancient heritage of the region’s Cham people, who once dominated the coast of southern Vietnam, by exploring the ruins of 13th-century towered temple complex of Po Klong Garai.
Later, enjoy the sunset as a Cham Master conducts a sacred blessing and a traditional Cham family feast is served beneath the star-strewn sky.
Summit the King on a spectacular full-day trek
Explore Nui Chua National Park and the surrounding Unesco Biosphere Reserve with a 27km trek – the longest offered by Amanoi. A full-day affair that reveals some of the region’s most spectacular land formations, it begins in Da Hang Village, ascends King Peak and ends in Cau Gay Village, home to the Raglai.
