By the end of the summer, Aman Resorts will be crossing off another hotel opening of its to-do list for this year: Amano’i, its brand new resort on scenic Vinh Hy Bay in Vietnam will have the first lucky guests jumping in that gorgee-ous infinity pool on September 1.

Combining the usual Aman (Sanskrit for ‘peace’) and no’i (‘place’ in Vietnamese), Amano’i sits on the coast northeast of Ho Chi Minh City. There are just 31 pavilions and five villas, with arrival happening at a central pavilion on the hilltop, offering in-your-face views of the coastline.

If our time at Amanpuri is anything to go by, those pavilions should be pretty spectacular, and the first images certainly don’t disappoint. Designed by Jean-Michel Gathy, it’s all contemporary restraint, with one open-plan living and sleeping area and outdoor sundeck.

Some pavilions have pools, which look like the perfect setting for a late night (skinny) dip. Villas consist of individual bedroom pavilions grouped around living/dining pavilions and a private pool and come with a housekeeper and personal chef.

Down by the sea there is a Beach Club with a second pool and a range of leisure facilities. The main restaurant is in the central pavilion, as is the library, bar, and boutique.

Amano’i follows the opening of Aman Canal Grande in the Palazzo Papadopoli in Venice, an exuberant canal-side Venetian palace with a storied past (interestingly enough, the noble family that has owned it for generations still does, and continues to live on the top floor). With Venice and Vietnam up and operating, that leaves two more to go (at least – rumors of other resorts are rife): AmanDayan in the western Chinese city of Lijiang, and Jordan. We’ll keep you updated on those.
