Amanoi’s new spa houses and new wellness immersions bring guests a deep sense of inner peace and overall wellbeing, for a healthier life.

Located on the dramatic coastline of Vinh Hy Bay, Amanoi is a contemporary beachside resort with 12 guest pavilions, 16 villas, two spa houses, and five residences surrounded by Nui Chua National Park, including a lotus-covered lake with a yoga pavilion. Since its launch in 2013, Amanoi has perfectly encapsulated the essence of Aman, where peace, intimacy, privacy, and a sense of place take center stage.

Amanoi’s extensive Amanoi Spa provides a serene setting for relaxation and rejuvenation and is one of the most comprehensive and innovative in Vietnam. The resort recently opened two Spa Houses, the first of their kind for Aman. The brand’s meditative outpost in Vietnam is hugged by rolling hills, overlooking picturesque Vinh Hy Bay. The unveiling of the Spa Houses mark a milestone for Amanoi and complement the recent launch of Aman Wellness, which saw the dual introduction of Group Wellness Retreats and Individual Immersions across the collection in 2016.

Neighboring the 11,000 sq m spa that overlooks a calming lake strewn with lotus flowers, the two Spa Houses offer utmost privacy, with one, Thuy Lien Spa House, featuring tranquil and unobscured views of the lake, and the other, An Son Spa House, providing a serene vista of the national park. 

The Spa Houses mimic the refined architectural language of Amanoi, and with their clean lines, choice of materials and living roofs blending seamlessly into their magnificent natural surroundings. Setting a benchmark of the brand, this concept provides guests with an entirely new spa experience, indulging them with two specialist spa therapists and comprehensive private spa facilities in the convenience of their own pavilion.

Each Spa House encompasses a spacious double treatment room adorned with a mural from Vietnamese artist Bui Huu Hung, a Jacuzzi, and a steam room complemented by an ice fountain and cold plunge pool. The outdoor infinity pool, perched on a relaxation deck, provides an ideal setting for escapism and reflection.
In addition to the wellness amenities, the Spa Houses can accommodate between two and four guests in the pavilion’s beautifully appointed bedroom and living areas, providing the option of residing overnight for a fully immersive experience.

The two Spa Houses are similar in design and offer the same exclusive spa experience, yet their choice of thermal facilities and vistas differ. True to its name, Thuy Lien Spa House overlooks the lotus lake and is inspired by the vista, featuring a hammam at the core of facilities, while the An Son Spa House enjoys views of the national park and features a wooden-clad banya.

An extensive spa menu, including specialized massage techniques and treatments such as Watsu, Reiki, craniosacral therapy, acupressure, reflexology and Chi Nei Tsang, can be fully tailored, as well as therapies in two categories - Bodywork and Energywork - which will also be available at both houses.

To coincide with the launch of the Spa Houses, Amanoi has also introduced three individual wellness immersions that can be experienced in situ and are available all year around. The Eastern Approaches to Weight Management Immersion aims to remove dietary, health and lifestyle barriers for those trying to accomplish weight loss, while the Movement, Mindfulness & Stress Control Immersion combines practices and therapies that reduce external stimuli to bring about a renewed internal focus for those with high stress lifestyles. Finally, the Longevity, Rejuvenation & Detoxification Immersion aims to reduce toxic accumulations and the physiological hurdles caused by exposure to modern environments. 

The programs, which last between three to ten days, aim to gently steer participants onto a new path. The joint launch of the Spa Houses and immersion programs demonstrate Amanoi’s commitment to providing a tranquil, nurturing, and holistic environment in which guests can cocoon themselves, step away from their everyday lives, and allow their minds to quieten and heal from the outside in.
