Amanoi, Vinh Hy Bay
The opening of Amanoi this month saw Vietnam's star ascend a little higher. Situated on the quiet curve of Vinh Hy Bay, with the wilds of Nui Chua National Park rising behind, it's the first property in the Socalist Republic by luxury hotel group Aman Resorts. The look inside is textbook Aman: there are 31 individual pavilions, some with views of the South China Sea, others with private pools, but all with the same polished, contemporary finish. A spa and hilltop restaurant round off the indulgence.
