In pictures: New resort along Vietnam’s Nha Trang shores pays homage to Indochina

Nostalgia meets beach at The Anam.

VIETNAM’S stunning shores of Nha Trang is fringed by a new beach resort – The Anam.

Located on Northern Cam Ranh Peninsula just 30 minutes from Nha Trang and 20 minutes from Cam Ranh International Airport, The Anam contributes to Nha Trang’s cause in selling itself as a high-end tourist destination.

The property’s aesthetic pays tribute to its colonial past with imperial Hue-style roofs, glowing lanterns, big-bellied water vases, decorative pools, customized mosaic floor tiles and stone pathways.

Some 3,000 palm trees shade the 12ha property that fronts 300m of private beach overlooking the East Sea – the definition of a barefoot sanctuary in the tropics.

All 27 villas have separate living rooms and private pools, and offer views of the vast ocean, towering headlands and lush gardens.

While East-meets-West themes are common in Asia, old-world elegance prevails throughout the property. Forests cultivated for sustainable harvests supply the hardwood, local artisans designed floor tiles that reference colonial French floors, and Vietnamese artworks hang from the walls.

On top of that, the soothing Sri Mara Spa has 10 treatment rooms, including four VIP rooms designed for couples, each equipped with two massage beds, a steam room, sauna, and outdoor granite jacuzzi.
