Ultimate Luxury in Vietnam and Cambodia
In addition to its countless UNESCO World Heritage-listed archaeological sites, fascinating cultural heritage and bewitching rural landscapes, both Cambodia and Vietnam also flaunt a secret stash of world-leading, five-star resorts in the most serene of settings, as you’ll see during this tour. Begin the adventure in Siem Reap, an evocative sprawl of temples (including Angkor Wat), countryside and authentic city streets in Northwest Cambodia, staying at the sublime Amansara Resort. From here, it’s on to coastal Hoi An and the Four Seasons Nam Hai Hotel for pristine beaches, verdant paddy fields and a beautiful ancient town. Then, head further south for a sojourn at the sleek Amanoi in Vinh Hy Bay before culminating your South-east Asian odyssey at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, both stunning, secluded beach resorts that’ll take you to cloud nine.
Hong Kong – Siem Reap
Briefly touchdown in Hong Kong, before being escorted to the airport’s private terminal and onward flight to Siem Reap, where a VIP transfer awaits. Once there, it’s a short drive towards the Angkor Archaeological Park and heavenly Amansara Resort, your multi-award-winning home for the next five nights.
DAYS 2 - 6
There’s a wealth of cultural activities to enjoy and ancient sites simply crying out to be explored, all within touching distance of the five-star Amansara Hotel. While onsite however, revel in the property’s harmonious architecture, decorative pools and temple-like grounds, or head to the otherworldly spa where a zen state is all but guaranteed. Then, venture off to explore the UNESCO-listed Angkor Wat Temple and stunning sister sites of Ta Prohm, Preah Khan, Beng Melea, Koh Ker and Bayon.
You can navigate the mangroves and floating village-islands of Tonlé Sap Lake, uncover the treasures of Siem Reap Town’s museums or get back to basics with a bicycle ride through the countryside, cultural demonstration or Buddhist Monk ceremony. No matter how you spend your time, either in the lap of Amansara luxury or delving deep into Cambodian cultural history, perhaps a little bit of both, this particular resort and such heritage-rich surroundings are duty-bound to enchant.
Siem Reap – Hoi An
This morning, fly east to the charming coastal town of Hoi An, checking into the magnificent, beachfront Four Seasons Nam Hai Hotel. Spend the rest of the day at leisure among the grounds of this sumptuous five-star resort, with its hypnotic pools, waterside casitas and classy cabins.
DAYS 7 - 11
Staying at the Four Seasons Nam Hai can be as active or indulgent as you like, either making the most of its spa, seafront setting and lush grounds or exploring the surrounding region. A walking tour of Hoi An itself is the best way to get to grips with this UNESCO World Heritage-listed site of authentic streets, rooftop restaurants and intimate temples. You could saddle-up for a fun-filled day cycling through nearby rice fields that are not only scenic, as verdant hills roll into lush green plains, but also make for a great insight into local, rural living – Vietnamese style. Or, simply spend your time enjoying the untouched beaches and coastline of Hoi An, finding your own favoured spot on the bay during five frivolous days.
Danang – Vinh Hy Bay
A short flight transports you from Danang to Cam Ranh Airport, followed by a VIP transfer to your luxury hotel in Vinh Hy Bay: Amanoi. Settle in for a sumptuous five-night stay at this exquisite Aman property, nestled in the unspoilt surrounds of Vinh Hy Bay’s rainforest, mountains and sea.
DAYS 13 - 16
Vinh Hy Bay
Amanoi is preened for pure relaxation, given its soul-nurturing backdrop in a quiet, secluded corner of Vietnam’s southern coast, combined with the Aman’s signature sleek style. Scattered across 100 acres of verdant greenery, the resort’s pagodas are each exclusive and private, inspired by Vietnamese architecture in their design and with up-to-the-minute amenities to ensure a totally luxe experience. Surrender to the serene Aman Spa, choose between two infinity pools and enjoy daily yoga every morning by the lake.
The Nui Cha National Park is then on your doorstep when you’re ready to explore. Go hiking, cycle to rural villages, or kayak out from a beach below the hotel. You can try watersports, fishing, and local cookery classes too, or head to Cham temples on a cultural tour of the region. Back at Amanoi, have your personal chef then cook up a tailormade storm, and dine in your very own residence while gazing out to sea; bliss.
Vinh Hy Bay – Ninh Van Bay
After five nights at Amanoi, transfer to the Six Senses Ninh Van Bay across the water from Nha Trang, travelling by private car and boat. Upon arrival, meet your personal butler who will take care of every detail over the next 10 days – including informing you of any daily activities taking place, menus, weather changes and everything else besides, ensuring that you get the upmost out of your stay here.
DAYS 18 - 26
Ninh Van Bay
Six Senses Ninh Van Bay is a remote haven set on the shores of the East Vietnam Sea, promising a paradise-like setting with pampering experiences to match. Each wood-clad hideaway is delightfully private, bestowing stunning sea views from an elevated perch in the jungle, with voile-draped beds and even secret swimming pools in certain room categories. This all-natural environment is ideal for wellness-seekers, and the Six Senses spa, yoga and fitness offerings will more than satisfy your quest for wellbeing.
Over the next ten days, take advantage of seven bars and restaurants at your disposal, as well as private destination and in-villa dining. Work it all off with some watersports, hiking and cycling, or simply doing laps in the pool and immersing yourself in the blue waters of Ninh Van Bay. However you prefer to spend your days, at the end of it all there should be nothing left but a feeling of absolute rest and reinvigoration, courtesy of the one and only Six Senses’ wellbeing ethos.
