Adding a third property to its portfolio of luxury resorts in Vietnam, Anantara Hotels and Resorts has announced the development of its newest villa retreat which is scheduled to open in late November 2018. Located in a secluded bay in south central Vietnam, Anantara Quy Nhon Villas will comprise 26 one- and two-bedroom ocean-facing villas ensconced amidst 7.2 hectares of landscaped tropical gardens.
A creative collaboration between HB Design and Marques and Jordy (M&J) architectural firms, Anantara Quy Nhon is designed to seamlessly blend into the natural environment. Locally-sourced materials, traditional craftsmanship and regional influences are discretely incorporated into the resort’s contemporary design. Spacious villas with their sleek timber and granite sundecks, minimalist plunge pools and extended low overhang roofs have a fresh, contemporary feel. Vietnamese blue stone keeps the look of the common areas vernacular while granite and marble elements introduce a touch of modernity.
Each villa at the new resort will come with dedicated butler services and a range of customizable luxury amenities such as preferred room scent ranging from exotic lemongrass to refreshing green tea, Anantara signature soap collection and in-villa wine cellar stocked with fine vintages and delicatessen.
At Sea Fire Salt, the all-day dining restaurant, the Salt and Wine Gurus elevate the dining experience with expert advice and guided tastings. At the swim-up bar premium cocktails, Vietnamese craft beers and Cuban cigars are served in a spectacular ocean-facing setting. In-villa dining aims to recreate a restaurant experience in the privacy of one’s villa with gourmet breakfast in bed, fully catered poolside barbecues and a luxury Vietnamese street food concept. Anantara’s signature Dining by Design delights with “Castaway” island picnics and exhilarating fishing trawler expeditions followed by five-star dining.
Situated on the hillside overlooking a serene bay, Anantara Spa is a jungle-shrouded wellbeing paradise. Anantara Quy Nhon guests will be able to take advantage of Anantara’s signature Balance Wellness concept offering a uniquely flexible approach to feeling good, through an inspirational range of wellness experiences and the total freedom to explore and indulge in between. The Masters of Wellness visiting practitioner calendar allows guests to book private sessions with alternative therapists who are trusted experts in holistic healing.
Rich in cultural attractions, Binh Dinh province, of which Quy Nhon is the capital city, is an attractive option for families, couples and groups of friends in search of meaningful and shared experiences with easy access to local cultural attractions, such as the relics of Champa civilisation and centuries-old Buddhist pagodas.
The resort is a 50-minute drive from Quy Nhon Airport, or Phu Cat Airport as it is known locally, and only a 20-minute drive from downtown Quy Nhon. Daily flights into Phu Cat Airport are operated from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
