The duplex rooms are perfect for younger guest, couples and single travellers, offering comfortable privacy with each room comprising a separate living room with the bedroom located upstairs. The top suite, called My Alma, is a spacious VIP suite with a capacity of up to six adults, it is ideal for families or groups of friends.

To complete your stay, a complimentary holistic spa journey is included for each night at the hotel, allowing guests to experience a treatment inspired by ancient traditions with distinct focus and benefits.

Dining at Almanity is a delight; Four Plates Restaurant takes guests on a culinary journey across the world with four international show kitchens serving authentic Japanese, Italian, Vietnamese and grilled fare. The Blue Bottle Bar Café offers infused drinks and tea tonics, while the Blue Teapot Terrace serves light bites, cakes and pastries.

Hoi An Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with another two, My Son Cham ruins and Hue Citadel, close by. The hotel is a short walk from the old town or a quick cycle to the countryside where guests can explore scenic rice fields and coconut plantations. After a day of exploring the local sights, the sun terrace, loungers and salt-water swimming pool provide a welcome escape from the heat, while the powder-white sandy beaches of Cua Dai and An Bang are the ideal place to relax under a palm tree with a lunch of fresh local seafood.

Client Testimonials

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!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
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
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
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.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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!
- Jaime Benitez, South 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
