ASIA. NINH THUAN PROVINCE, VIETNAM.
Driving from Cam Ranh Airport to their resort, Amanoi guests may think they’re going the wrong way; rather than flocking south to Nah Trang beach with the other tourists, they’re heading north to a lonely retreat on a secluded bay in the wilds of Nui Chua National Park. Such isolation gives rise to Amanoi’s greatest asset: stunning, un-peopled ocean vistas as far as the eye can see. Unsurprisingly, life here centres on nature-based activities like diving and hiking, as well as on serenity at a spa that has been described more than once as “a destination unto itself ”.
