Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas scoped out some of Vietnam’s most idyllic beaches before settling on a site—two hours northeast of Ho Chi Minh City—that’s perfect for their first Vietnamese property. Opening this fall, the Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa is surrounded by stunning scenery. The tranquil fishing village of Mui Ne used to be a closely-guarded secret among backpackers; and ever since 1995’s total solar eclipse, when thousands flocked to the beach to check out the celestial event next to the South China Sea, the area has been on the traveler’s radar.
Located on a former coconut plantation, the Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa will have 89 rooms, suites, and villas nestled in tropical gardens. The Pool Villa sounds like choice accommodations- with a private lounge, pool, and sweeping views over the lagoon. Other facilities include a signature Anantara Spa, open-air seafood restaurant on the beach, fitness center, and water sports like kayaking, kite-surfing and sailing.
