Vietnamâ€™s Cam Ranh Bay is fast shaping up as a resort destination, and the latest product to materialise there is The Anam, a luxurious 117-villa and 96-room resort framed by swaying palm trees (3,000 of them!) and turquoise waters of the East Sea.
The Anamâ€™s design pays homage to both colonial-era and age-old Vietnamese aesthetics by way of imperial Hue-style roofs, glowing lanterns, big-bellied water vases, decorative pools, customised mosaic floor tiles and stone pathways.
The independently owned and operated 12-hectare hotel dangles a 10 treatment-room spa, a 3D movie theatre, three swimming pools, a water sports centre, a yoga room, a tennis court as some of its myriad recreational lures, making it an attractive reward stay for top achievers.
Business events were considered in its design and construction too, with The Anam offering The Colonial Room (170 pax theatre-style or 80 pax banquet), The Au Lac Room (250 pax theatre-style or 120 pax banquet), and three other meeting rooms. The movie theatre can be hired for corporate presentations too, and can seat 60 guests.
A kids club providing various indoor activities and games adds to The Anamâ€™s ability to satisfy business event travellersâ€™ growing desire to inject personal pleasure into their work trips.
