A world unto itself, with a private beach embraced by Nui Chua National Park, Amanoi offers all the seclusion, peace and outdoor magic one could possibly desire over the festive period. The resort is also home to one of the globe’s most comprehensive Aman Spas allowing wellness to be at the forefront of a holiday in this pristine coastal getaway. With hope for a brighter, healthier future and time with loved ones never more poignantly front of mind, this year Amanoi has curated a host of bespoke activities and exclusive dining experiences inspired by Aman destinations around the world to ensure an utterly memorable and wholly rejuvenating festive season on the shores of Vietnam’s East Sea.
24 & 25 December
Perched high on the cliffs of Amanoi’s dramatic coastline with all-embracing sea views, the main pavilion with its extraordinary open-air terrace will play host to both a lavish Christmas Eve dinner and a sumptuous evening meal on Christmas day. Work up an appetite on the 24th with a golden afternoon playing beach tennis, then prepare for a six-course degustation menu including crispy pork belly, poached turbot, butter roasted turkey and pear Mont Blanc.
After Santa’s visit to both Amanoi and the local village of Cau Gay the next morning, kids can decorate gingerbread cookies as carols drift through the balmy air. A delectable four-course dinner will combine the complex flavours of Vietnam and French cuisine.
31 December & 1 January
New Year’s Eve will begin with a Champagne and cocktail reception in the Bar, followed by a six-course gala dinner served in the Main Restaurant with live music by the Hat Jazz Band, traditional Cham dance performances, and magic shows throughout the evening. An international DJ will keep the after party going into the early hours.
On New Year’s Day, join local Buddhist monks at Vinh Hy Village Pagoda praying for good fortune in the months ahead, choose a meaningful phrase to be written in calligraphy by a local master, and take part in a private sunset Cham blessing ceremony overlooking the sea before a guided stargazing experience with champagne and canapes.
A global culinary adventure
22 December – 2 January
This festive season at Amanoi will take guests on a journey around the world with extraordinary dining experiences inspired by different Aman destinations. A seafood feast at the Beach Club on the 26th and a Vietnamese banquet on the 27th will celebrate Amanoi’s own tropical setting, while a multi-course Japanese dinner and sake tasting in the Main Restaurant will whisk you to Aman Tokyo’s Land of the Rising Sun on the 29th. After a sushi making class on the 2nd, celebrate the flavours of the world with an East Meets West themed evening of dining and entertainment.
