Trekking the coastline 

Hugged by hills, Amanoi is a gateway to the 29,000-hectare Nui Chua National Park which sits within the Nui Chua Unesco Biosphere Reserve - a rugged wonderland of diverse landscapes where hikers are rewarded with sweeping panoramas and myriad wildlife at every turn. From the resort, the network of trails can lead guests on family-friendly rambles to picnics on secret beaches, or more challenging treks to the rock formations of Bai Da or the bay-view drama of Goga Peak.

Reef encounters 

Fringing the bay, a kingdom of coral awaits between the waves. Explore the pristine reefs on a guided snorkelling expedition, and discover more than 350 varieties of staghorn, plate and brain corals found in the Vinh Hy Bay conservation area, as well as colourful shoals of tropical fish including triggerfish, angel fish, trumpet, damsel and bat fish that make their home here. Or glide over the surface of Vinh Hy Bay in one of Amanoi’s “glass” bottom kayaks. Made from durable, lightweight, shatter-resistant polycarbonate, the kayaks are completely transparent, allowing you to see whatever sea creatures happen to be swimming beneath you.

Journeys in the lost kingdom 

Discover the ancient heritage of the region’s Cham people, who once dominated the coast of southern Vietnam. Bringing alive the rich and historic past of the Champa Kingdom, Amanoi’s guide will take guests on a journey of discovery into this ancient culture starting in Phan Rang with a visit to the Cham Museum. From there the tour takes guests the Po Klong Garai Cham Towers. Built in the 12th and 13th centuries to honour the great King Po Klong Garai, the towers are perched atop a hill with 360-degree panoramic views. Three of the six original towers are remaining and provide a fascinating insight into the Hindu and Islamic influences on the Cham culture over the centuries.

Sacred Cham experience

The journey starts at dusk with a gentle walk to our hidden spot set in the middle of nature. The Cham is well-known for their cuisine, thus a Cham feast is a requisite in this special journey. While enjoying dinner, allow your senses to embrace the beauty of nature, listen to the sounds of wildlife, feel the ocean breeze and gaze at the graceful ‘starry night’ sky. There are very few masters in a Cham society, due to high requirements of deep knowledge, practices and skills. Fortunately, a one-of-a-kind rendez-vous with a master is made for you right in the mystic jungle of Amanoi. Join him for a blessing ceremony in the Cham style - a truly unique and interesting way to feel something you have never experienced before.

Golf Experience 

Enjoy an off-site golf course rests between the majestic Nui Chua mountains and the sweeping sand dunes of the local beach. Perfect for golfers of all abilities, each of the 18 holes are designed with five different tees and offer a breathtaking backdrop for a memorable round. Whether a beginner or professional, the course makes the ideal half or full-day trip from Amanoi, with return transfers also available.  

Summit the King on a spectacular full-day trek

Explore Nui Chua National Park and the surrounding Unesco Biosphere Reserve with a 27km trek – the longest offered by Amanoi. A full-day affair that reveals some of the region’s most spectacular land formations, it begins in Da Hang Village, ascends King Peak and ends in Cau Gay Village, home to the Raglai.

Swim in rockpools, pause over spectacular coastal vistas and learn the story of the region’s highest peaks – symbols of enduring brotherly love. A delicious picnic lunch is included, and transport to and from the start and finish.

Family Activities

Surrounded by pristine nature with opportunities for adventure at every turn, Amanoi is an inspiring environment for guests of all ages. Embark on a family adventure or take advantage of time alone while kids throw themselves into crafts, games and cultural or active pursuits.
