Trekking the coastline 

Hugged by hills, Amanoi is a gateway to the 29,000-hectare Nui Chua National Park which sits within the Nui Chua Unesco Biosphere Reserve - a rugged wonderland of diverse landscapes where hikers are rewarded with sweeping panoramas and myriad wildlife at every turn. From the resort, the network of trails can lead guests on family-friendly rambles to picnics on secret beaches, or more challenging treks to the rock formations of Bai Da or the bay-view drama of Goga Peak.

Reef encounters 

Fringing the bay, a kingdom of coral awaits between the waves. Explore the pristine reefs on a guided snorkelling expedition, and discover more than 350 varieties of staghorn, plate and brain corals found in the Vinh Hy Bay conservation area, as well as colourful shoals of tropical fish including triggerfish, angel fish, trumpet, damsel and bat fish that make their home here. Or glide over the surface of Vinh Hy Bay in one of Amanoi’s “glass” bottom kayaks. Made from durable, lightweight, shatter-resistant polycarbonate, the kayaks are completely transparent, allowing you to see whatever sea creatures happen to be swimming beneath you.

Journeys in the lost kingdom 

Discover the ancient heritage of the region’s Cham people, who once dominated the coast of southern Vietnam, by exploring the ruins of 13th-century towered temple complex of Po Klong Garai. Later, enjoy the sunset as a Cham Master conducts a sacred blessing and a traditional Cham family feast is served beneath the star-strewn sky. 

Summit the King on a spectacular full-day trek

Explore Nui Chua National Park and the surrounding Unesco Biosphere Reserve with a 27km trek – the longest offered by Amanoi. A full-day affair that reveals some of the region’s most spectacular land formations, it begins in Da Hang Village, ascends King Peak and ends in Cau Gay Village, home to the Raglai.

Swim in rockpools, pause over spectacular coastal vistas and learn the story of the region’s highest peaks – symbols of enduring brotherly love. A delicious picnic lunch is included, and transport to and from the start and finish.

Family Activities

Surrounded by pristine nature with opportunities for adventure at every turn, Amanoi is an inspiring environment for guests of all ages. Embark on a family adventure or take advantage of time alone while kids throw themselves into crafts, games and cultural or active pursuits.
