New luxury in the heart of glorious Vietnam

Anantara Quy Nhon opens its doors

Located in a secluded bay in south central Vietnam, Quy Nhon is best known to adventurous travellers for its incredibly wide beaches and emerald waters, as well as being rich in cultural attractions. With plenty to offer families, couples and  groups, the capital city of Binh Dinh province is now home to a luxurious new home away from home to entice even the most discerning traveller.

Quy Nhon Villas, Anantara’s latest all-villa resort, provides the perfect surrounds for a luxurious beachside holiday, with private pools, in-room butler services and unique spa treatments. Concealed by hectares of landscaped tropical gardens, the resort manages to seamlessly blend into the natural environment with locally-sourced materials, traditional craftsmanship and regional influences discretely incorporated into its contemporary design.

Anantara Quy Nhon boasts a collection of one and two bedroom ocean-facing villas with sleek timber and granite sundecks, oversized bathtubs, private lap pools and extended low overhanging roofs. What sets this resort apart though is the focus on personalised experiences, with in-room butler services and a range of customisable luxury amenities including a preferred room scent, Anantara’s signature soap collection and an in-villa wine cellar stocked with fine vintages and a delicatessen.

 Dining is opulent with a focus on celebrating the abundant local seafood and regional flavours. Notably, at signature restaurant Sea.Fire.Salt, Anantara’s Salt Guru elevates the dining experience with expert advice. An excellent in-villa dining concept aims to recreate a restaurant experience with gourmet breakfast in bed, fully catered poolside barbecues and a luxury Vietnamese street food concept. Anantara’s signature Dining by Design offers ‘castaway’ island picnics and fishing trawler expeditions followed by five-star dining.

Anantara’s exclusive Balance Wellness concept, an inspirational range of wellness experiences, is a must do for the schedule. The Masters of Wellness visiting practitioner calendar allows guests to book private sessions with alternative therapists who are trusted experts in holistic healing. The Spa is a destination in itself, perched high on the hillside overlooking a serene bay, with nature-inspired treatment suites that boast double massage beds and oversized bathtubs for nourishing coconut milk soaks.

It’s not just about overindulgence here though. There are several guest experiences that really showcase this undiscovered part of Vietnam and a visit here would not be complete without a visit to the relics of the ancient kingdom of Champa, an enduring power that lasted over 1500 years in Southern Vietnam. The Champa Towers sit within the city limits in a pretty park. Steep steps lead up to the temples, which retain some of the ornate brickwork and remnants of the granite statuary that once graced its summit. A guided Quy Nhon Explorer tour is the best way to see the sights, with a traditional hat weaving workshop, a home-cooked meal with a local family who will serve traditional Binh Dinh dishes, a visit to the Champa Towers and a hands-on rice paper making workshop.

Whether for adventure or for pure relaxation in idyllic surroundings, a stay at this new all-villa resort will leave you feeling refreshed, energised and enlightened.
