For the next few weeks I am going to post images of some of the destinations I have been privileged to experience. We are all dreaming of getting back on the road.
Aman heaven again. And you will be too!
Aman is a Sanskrit-derived word for peace and Noi means “place”
This property personifies that ethic.
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 everyone’s must travel list
Impossible to describe the serenity, sense of place, and spectacular decor.
A fabulous spot to wind down after a tour of SE Asia, Amanoi is perfect for a honeymoon and divine for a destination wedding.
The designer, Jean-Michel Gathy also did the spectacular Amanyara in Turks &Caicos
Not a “palm tree” resort. Amanoi is set on the coast in beautiful Vinh Hy Bay in the middle of the Nui Chua National park. Vegetation is subtropical, and incredible rock formations are everywhere. There is a wonderful beach with unusual shells and a darling fishing village on the other side of Vinh Hy bay. Landing in Na Trang, the drive is about an hour and 15minutes on an amazing coastal drive. The good news is that the car has WIFI so you can catch up on emails or track your progress on google maps.
Food was fabulous. Beef was flown in from Australia, all vegetables and fruits are local and organic, seafood was right out of the local waters. Couldn’t be more fresh.
I want to move into our villa- it is that comfortable. The beyond fab Spa has the only Pilates equipment and set up in Vietnam. They also boast hydrotherapy equipment.
New Years Celebrations at Amanyara are spectacular events. This year they had Grammy Winner Nile Rodgers, another year it was Mary J. Blige, 2012 it was Bryan Ferry and 2011 they had the ever fabulous- one and only – Prince! Make your reservations early for New Years 2015, they sell out quickly!
After weeks of 20 degree deep freeze, I flew down to the most divine resort in the Turks and Caicos, Amanyara. I am in heaven!! Clear water in a spectrum of blues, I am blissfully enjoying warm sea breezes. Amanyara is situated on the edge of the West coast in the North West Point National Park. No other buildings, cars, or people. Peaceful, peaceful quiet on top of the normal Zen quality that Aman lovers come to expect. all one hears is the crash of the waves on a white powder beach or the breeze wafting through the trees. I forget how clear and blue the waer can be.
