Travel East Asia in Luxurious Style with Aman Resorts

18 days from £7,955 per person

Deriving from the Sanskrit word for ‘peace’ and with 23 resorts in 19 countries, Aman properties are designed to complement the natural setting and to create the impression of private residences. This tour combines some of Southeast Asia’s most captivating highlights with stays at beach, city and rural Aman properties.

Start in China’s capital where the iconic Great Wall and Tiananmen Square await. Escape the chaotic city streets with a serene Chinese massage before retiring to Aman at Summer Palace with its century old pavilions, traditional architecture and state of the art facilities. The delicate combination of authentic and modern creates a comfortable yet distinguished setting for guests to relax and absorb the classic beauty of Beijing.

Experience a different China to that of Beijing by journeying south to Hangzhou and taking part in a guided tour of Longjing Tea Village and Nine Creeks. Stay in the historic Amanfayun settled among picturesque tea fields and forests, and revel in the ancient Chinese village ambience of the beautifully restored location.

Next, fly to Vietnam where Aman’s contemporary beachside resort and spa take pride of place along the dramatic coastline of Nui Chua National Park. Situated on a white sand beach overlooking the spectacular Vinh Hy Bay, Amanoi is Aman’s first property in Vietnam and perfect for rejuvenating the mind and soul at midway through the tour.

Arrive in Luang Prabang and transfer to Amantaka, then in the early evening enjoy a traditional Baci welcoming ceremony performed to celebrate important events and occasions. Stroll through charming streets filled with colonial houses and restaurants and watch long lines of saffron robed monks emerge from the morning mist to collect their alms. Visit the local market and the cascading waters of Kuang Si Falls before retreating to the airy and elegant Amantaka, whose delicate furnishings reflect the town’s French colonial history.

Fly south to Siem Reap and transfer to Amansara built in 1962 for King Sihanouk to accommodate visitors unable to stay at his royal residence. The 24 suite luxury resort is ideally located ten minutes from the entrance of the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage Site where guests can spend the day discovering the temples of Angkor with a private driver and guide.

Finally, experience Amanpuri in Phuket, Aman’s flagship property. Reflecting the style and elegance of Thai culture the resort’s pavilions and villas are situated in a coconut plantation overlooking the Andaman Sea. With a private white sand beach and a fleet of luxury cruisers Amanpuri is the perfect place to kick back and relax before returning to the UK.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.

- Susan Ford, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
