  • The Anam

    Believe it or not – it’s not freezing everywhere!

    Imagine escaping to The Anam, a lush 12-hectare resort overlooking 300 metres of beachfront on Vietnam’s scenic Cam Ranh peninsula, which averages more than 300 sunny days per year.

    One of Vietnam’s top coastal resorts, the five-star Anam celebrated its grand opening last year and boasts three restaurants and two bars, a 10 treatment-room spa, three capacious swimming pools, recreation and fitness centre, yoga room and deck, water sport centre, tennis court, and so much more.

    The Anam’s design pays homage to colonial-era and age-old Vietnamese aesthetics, evoking a nostalgic tone with its imperial Hue-style roofs, glowing lanterns, big-bellied water vases, decorative pools, customised mosaic floor tiles and stone pathways.

    The Anam’s villas are recognised by Worldhotels as ‘World Luxury’ – one of only six resorts worldwide to achieve this status. theanam.com
