Water Puppet Tours

da

With its numerous national parks, white sand beaches, colourful villages, pagodas and ancient monuments, forests and islands, Vietnam is a land of often surprising beauty, offering cultural depth and history, increasingly combined with tourism-friendly areas offering all the facilities a modern traveller could wish for.

Vietnam’s people are its greatest asset: gregarious, friendly and eager to meet visitors. In the bustling cities, the often chaotic streets contrast ox carts with limousines, ancient rituals with sophisticated technology, and are ruled by the ubiquitous moped.

Our strength is in translating these opportunities into detailed, practical itineraries. We do luxury travel and event planning, as well as a wide range of beach, family, honeymoon, adventure, golf, veteran and cultural tours.

There is no better way to experience a destination than through the perspective of the local people. At Water Puppet Tours, this key element of local insight drives every step of our process of tour design and delivery. We provide tailor-made tours individually crafted for each client, achieving this by emphasizing the direct working relationship between the client and the tour designer and operator.

Amanresorts makes its debut in Vietnam with a contemporary beachside resort alongside a full-service Aman Spa. Named for the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’ and noi meaning ‘place’, Amanoi is a tranquil retreat situated on a beautiful white-sand beach overlooking spectacular Vinh Hy Bay.

Shaped like an elegant seahorse with its back to Laos, its tail embracing Cambodia and its belly curving into the western waters of the East Sea, Vietnam is one of Southeast Asia’s most fascinating countries. Its scenic coastline stretches in a sinuous s-shape over 3,200 kilometres from China in the north, to the Mekong Delta and beyond in the south. Famed for its cuisine and its rich history, Vietnam is increasingly gaining recognition for its natural beauty and biodiversity. Nui Chua National Park in particular protects an area of more than 29,000 hectares of pristine coastal and marine habitats in Ninh Thuan Province, northeast of Ho Chi Minh City.

It is on the dramatic coastline of this National Park – one of the country’s largest natural conservation sites – that Amanoi is situated. With the launch of Amanoi, Amanresorts adds Vietnam to its Southeast Asian circuit, with Amanpuri in Thailand, Amantaka in Laos and Amansara in Cambodia already on offer.

After a scenic drive through Nui Chua National Park, guests ascend a broad bank of stairs to Amanoi’s Central Pavilion. On reaching the top, one experiences an unforgettable sense of arrival, as the panoramic views of the sea and coastline spread before one are simply breathtaking. Inspired by a traditional Vietnamese communal hall, the Central Pavilion occupies the hilltop and houses the Restaurant, Bar and an expansive terrace, all making the most of the breathtaking views. The resort’s Library offers a range of reading materials in several languages, together with a music collection and board games. The Boutique features a selection of traditional Vietnamese lacquerware, handmade jewellery and local bronze, copper, pottery and ceramic items, as well as resort apparel. Next to the Central Pavilion is the Cliff Pool, one of two swimming pools. The second is located at the Beach Club which overlooks the white-sand beach and offers dining and lounging areas, as well as a range of water sports equipment. The resort’s Aman Spa is a destination unto itself, set on a tranquil lake and surrounded by the National Park’s verdant hills. Amanoi’s fitness options include a spacious, light-filled Gymnasium, a Pilates Studio and a lakeside Yoga Pavilion. There are also two outdoor tennis courts and a number of scenic walking, running and trekking routes on the property.

Facilities and Amenities:

Guest accommodation includes 31 Pavilions, a number with private swimming pools, and five Aman Villas, all positioned on the hillside with impressive views. The design of the Pavilions and Aman Villas fuses contemporary elegance with traditional Vietnamese architectural styles. Views are either of Nui Chua National Park, the lake on the property, or Vinh Hy Bay and the East Sea. Pavilions are identical in layout and design, and each offers a combined living and sleeping area, as well as a timber sundeck with sun loungers. Features include a king-size bed, sofa, writing desk, LCD TV with international channels, sound docking system, wireless Internet, mini-bar and espresso machine.

Amanoi provides five accommodation categories: Pavilions offer picturesque views of the surrounding mountains or the lake. Pool Pavilions feature a private swimming pool with panoramic views. Ocean Pavilions offer expansive views of Vinh Hy Bay and the East Sea, while Ocean Pool Pavilions offer similar views alongside private swimming pools. Each Aman Villa consists of four or five free-standing bedroom pavilions, as well as living and dining pavilions and a large private swimming pool. A live-in housekeeper and cook meet all guests’ needs, including the preparation of Vietnamese or Western cuisine in the villa’s private kitchen.

Aman spa: Amanoi’s extensive Aman Spa is a destination unto itself, providing a serene setting for relaxation and rejuvenation. Set beside a lotus-filled lake, it enjoys a prime position on the property, surrounded by the National Park’s rolling hills. Facilities include five double treatment rooms, all with unique double bathtubs, private dressing areas and showers; two hydrotherapy suites; hand & foot therapy rooms; and a hair & finishing salon where manicures and pedicures can be enjoyed. A number of relaxation lounges with tranquil views are ideal for taking time out before or after a treatment. The extensive Aman Spa menu offers body treatments, scrubs, wraps, facials and hair care using Aman Spa’s all-natural, chemical-free spa product range. This is complemented by traditional Vietnamese ingredients including aromatic herbs, rice and coffee.

Fitness facilities: Amanoi’s fitness options include a spacious, light-filled Gymnasium, a Pilates Studio and a lakeside Yoga Pavilion. There are also two outdoor tennis courts and two swimming pools – one close to the Central Pavilion on top of the hill, and the other at the Beach Club beside the white-sand beach. There are also a number of scenic walking, running and trekking routes on the property.

Beach club: Overlooked by magnificent granite cliffs, the Beach Club is located on the sandy white beach of Vinh Hy Bay. Designed to maximise the views, the Beach Club offers lounging and dining areas, as well as a swimming pool. A complete range of water sports equipment is provided including snorkelling gear and kayaks.

Excursions & activities: Ninh Thuan Province is home to the Cham, a key ethnic group in Vietnam. But it is the region’s natural beauty which is its main attraction, on land and beneath the waters of the East Sea. Amanoi offers guests easy access to the region’s spectacular beaches, marine reserves and pristine interior.

Nui Chua National Park: Originally a nature reserve, Nui Chua was awarded national park status in 2003. With a total area of more than 29,000 hectares, as well as an adjacent marine reserve of over 7,300 hectares, Nui Chua National Park ranges from sea level to the summit of Nui Chua Peak at 1,039 metres. As a result, the park offers a number of different ecosystems and diverse flora and fauna. The interior is typical of a tropical dry forest, with streams carving their way through ravines and rocky outcrops surrounded by verdant vegetation. The park is home to at least 1,500 plant species, 160 bird species and 60 mammal species, including the endangered black-shanked douc – an Old World monkey. Amanoi can arrange guides, picnics and all necessary transport for excursions into the park.

Snorkeling: The coral reefs fringing the East Sea feature delicate staghorn corals, and are home to a myriad tropical fish including triggerfish. In the Vinh Hy Bay Sea Conservation Area, there are 307 varieties of rare corals, including 50 varieties recently discovered in Vietnam. Snorkelling is particularly enjoyable as the protection offered by the many rock islands ensures calm, clear waters.

  • Scuba Diving: For those wishing to explore at greater depths, scuba diving is an option.
  • Kayaks & Hobie Cats: Vinh Hy Bay is known as one of Vietnam’s four most beautiful bays, and exploring its interesting rock formations, hidden caves and secret inlets by kayak or Hobie Cat should not be missed.
  • Fishing Village: Fishing is the main industry in Vinh Hy Bay. Amanoi guests can experience the bustle of the fishing village on foot or by car.
