The Anam, one of Vietnam’s most compelling new resorts and located in Cam Ranh, south-central Khanh Hoa province, has launched a series of Wellness Journeys that feature private yoga sessions, detoxifying and slimming massages, green tea body scrubs, and deep cleansing facials.

Introduced this month, the suite of new three- and five-day packages has been designed to provide a restorative holiday on Vietnam’s southern coast. The two programs, exclusive to guests staying at The Anam, are priced at VND5 million ($220) and VND8 million ($350).

“We seek opportunities not to just relax on the beach but to heal and re-energize physically and mentally as our lives grow all the more hectic and stressful,” said Mr. Pham Van Hien, owner and Chairman of the resort. “These new programs help people to spiritually discover the journey to wellness and our spectacular natural setting encourages the right mindset.”

Resident yogi Umesh hosts private 60-minute yoga sessions daily for both programs at several venues around the property, including a vast, oceanfront lawn and a yoga room and deck with an ocean view.

The calming three-day program entails a host of treatments at the Anam Spa, including a 60-minute “Sri Mara Arising” signature massage, a 30-minute green tea body scrub, a 30-minute Balinese Boreh body wrap, and a 60-minute facial.

Inspired by traditional Vietnamese and Balinese techniques, the signature massage relieves stress and restores harmony between body and mind as a result of the massage therapist’s focus on pressure points.

The Balinese Boreh body wrap is based on a centuries-old healing concoction comprising hand- crushed ingredients such as ginger, cloves, turmeric root, and cardamom, to boost blood circulation and ease muscle pain and arthritis.

The five-day slimming and detoxifying program includes a 60-minute coffee, orange body scrub and mud body wrap, three 60-minute detox and slimming massages using classic lymphatic massage techniques to stimulate blood flow and reduce water retention and inflammation in areas such as the stomach, buttocks and arms, as well as a 60-minute facial.

Freshly-squeezed juices such as orange, ginger and honey or lemon, and orange and ginger are also served daily.

Participants are welcome to round-out their programs with complimentary sunrise yoga sessions by the beach, as well as beach volleyball and sepak takraw (a sport known as “kick volleyball” and native to Southeast Asia), and time at the gymnasium, a fully equipped facility with state-of- the-art Precor technology, including treadmills, elliptical trainers, bikes, bench presses, and weights.

At an additional cost, The Anam’s personal trainer also holds personal training sessions at the gym and outdoors, while the Water Sports Center offers recreational pursuits ranging from kayaking and bravo sailing to surfing, body-boarding, and snorkeling.
