Anantara unveils its first property in Vietnam
Monday 9, May 2011
Amidst a landscape of swaying coconut palms, in a paradise where the sea meets the sand dunes, Anantara is entering truly exotic new territory with the opening of its first Vietnamese property in the autumn of 2011 - Anantara Mui Ne Resort and Spa.
Creating a luxurious new gateway to the distinctive cultural charms of southeastern Vietnam, as well as a breathtaking first glimpse of refined coastal life in a much celebrated beach destination, Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa will welcome discerning travellers by harnessing the very spirit of this exciting locale. This will be combined with Anantara’s revered Asian hospitality and a range of signature spa, dining and discovery journeys.
Located 198 kilometres northeast of Ho Chi Minh City on the South East Coast of Vietnam, next to the town of Phan Thiet in the province of Binh Thuan, Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa is named after Mui Ne fishing village, in which it occupies an enviable central shoreline position and is surrounded by the village’s famously long and beautiful beaches, stunning mountains and desert-like sand dunes.
Mui Ne’s natural charms are enhanced by an ideal beach climate, being attractively warm and dry for the most part of the year with an average temperature of 29 degress Celsius and promising the lowest annual rainfall of the entire country. Accompanying winds coming in from the ocean transform the heat into a pleasant breeze and generate optimum conditions for kite surfing and windsurfing, as well as refreshing beach time.
Immersed in this alluring tropical scene, guests of Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa will take further inspiration from a fresh water lagoon and tropical gardens which will highlight an expansive swimming pool, while the resort’s traditional Vietnamese architecture will proudly embrace 89 rooms, suites and pool villas designed in contemporary harmony with local culture.
Guests will have a choice of a wide range of rooms and suites ranging from 42 square metres to the Presidential Suite of 178 square metres which offers different lagoon, pool and beach perspectives. In addition, 20 Pool Villas, ranging from 92 to 128 square metres, will boast a private lounge, open-air bathroom, private swimming pool, and spectacular outlook of the gardens, lagoon, pool or beachfront.
Food and beverage outlets marry the resort’s magnificent views and tropical setting with local delicacies and international flair.
Banqueting, event and meeting facilities include five conference rooms for up to 250 participants, as well as exceptional al fresco reception locations. Leisure time unfolds in a host of relaxing and rejuvenating pastimes, with amenities including a spa offering a wealth of health, beauty and wellness treatments, a stunning beach swimming pool, a fitness centre with modern gym equipment in a picturesque garden setting, a reading lounge providing books, magazines, CDs and DVDs.
Guests can look forward to experiencing an invigorating range of water sport activities or improving their swing at a nearby golf course, as well as delving into local culture and history with local points of interest including Mui Ne’s fishing village, port and sand dunes, Hon Rom Red Canyon, Lotus Lake, Dragon Fruit Farm, the Poshanu Cham Tower, Ta Ku Mountain, the Fairy Stream, and Water Tower, and Ke Ga Lighthouse.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
