Vinh Hy Bay

Top 10s logo 

Vinh Hy Bay is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Summer Holiday Destinations in Asia.

Vinh Hy Bay lies in the scenic Ninh Thuan Province of Vietnam and is home to the exquisite Amanoi. One of Ampersand's ‘Top 10 Beach Hotels’, as well as one of our ‘Top 10 Aman Resorts in Asia’, this property guarantees an unforgettable stay with its state-of-the-art design and knock-out pool, which reflects the cobalt-blue sky perfectly to meet the deep blue South China Sea on the horizon. Here, it is impossible not to unwind as it’s a complete oasis of calm.

The bay still remains unspoiled due to its proximity to Nui Chua National Park and thanks to this stunning setting, it has become a corner of the tourism triangle. Vinh Hy Bay is 55 kilometres south of Cam Ranh Airport, making it just an hour and half's hour scenic drive away; while the first half of the drive from the airport is nondescript, you suddenly hit the coastal road and a part of Vietnam is revealed unlike anything you've ever seen. The phenomenal landscape reminds us of the Adriatic coast or Sardinia with large boulders dramatically sticking out of the green flora. The last 30 minutes of the drive to Amanoi are spectacular as the winding road hugs the rugged coastline, passing by 5 to 6 vast sweeping bays.

As an eco-tourist spot, the bay has preserved its rural beauty with white sandbanks circling steep rocky mountains and extensive green forests. Some great coral reefs for diving and snorkelling can be found in this area, but fishing is the main trade here. A range of water sports can also be enjoyed, from kayaking to water skiing, which are sure to keep the most active of visitors entertained. For those that prefer to explore on dry land, the National Park nearby is a great place to hike among the peninsula's beautifully jagged terrain.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Bill Bryson

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
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
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
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
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.
- Mr David Wallace, North 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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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
