Cultural Immersion During a Luxurious Vacation at The Anam Resort
Relaxing just inside a resort became outdated long ago. People try to see the land they are visiting by booking tours, renting cars and going out to explore cities. However, what if there was a chance to take a deep plunge into the country’s local culture and experience it the way its natives do every day? The Anam resort, this year’s winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of Luxury Resort in Vietnam, has made it possible for you!
The dreamy and romantic resort, chosen as a filming location for both the reality TV hit The Bachelor in the US (for season 23, 2019) and the German version Der Bachelor in 2018, is the first true five-star colonial beach resort in Vietnam. It pays homage to a remarkable bygone era with its atmosphere, serenity and the highest quality of services.
Undoubtedly, one of the reasons The Anam stands out from its competitors is the creation of truly authentic experiences for guests that help explore the fascinating local culture. Mama’s Cooking culinary event is the perfect example of such an adventure. Each Friday evening about half a dozen mothers of the staff cook delicious Vietnamese meals, handed down the generations, the way they would be making them for their own families.
Another way of plunging into the marvelous world of Vietnam is the “Day in the Life” program from The Anam resort. Tourists get to spend a day with a local family and see their life “from the inside”. Activities include breakfast with baguettes from the family’s favorite local bakery, a visit to the market, the Vietnamese family shops, as well as the herb garden and a noodle-making house. The host family introduces its guests to local farmers and fellow community members. A cooking lesson in the afternoon usually follows, while children simply enjoy playing with each other. Such dishes as bò nướng lá lốt (grilled beef in betel leaf), bún bò Huế (Hue-style beef noodle soup) and bánh xèo (crispy Vietnamese pancakes) are typically on the menu, while other recipes, passed from generation to generation, are also shared. After that, everybody sits down together to enjoy the meal and a pleasant conversation.
The host family is carefully selected and matched to the visitors’ profile. Tourists are usually left with not only great new skills and impressions but also a recipe book to keep along with their memories.
In addition to these unique local experiences, The Anam offers wonderful amenities under their “Indochine Charm. Modern Luxury” philosophy. 300 meters of the private beach by the East Sea, lavish accommodations (77 villas and 136 rooms and suites) and a kinglike 10 treatment-room spa are surrounded by luxurious turquoise waters, dramatic headlands and offshore islands to become your perfect haven for rest and rejuvenation.
The resort also features a fine dining grill, an all-day dining restaurant, a Vietnamese restaurant and bar, a classic bar, a beach club, in-room dining, a 3-D movie theatre, three capacious swimming pools, a ballroom, conference rooms, a recreation and fitness center, a tennis court, a yoga room and deck, a kids club and more.
You can be sure that spending your holiday at The Anam will give your body and soul that well-deserved luxurious restoration, while filling your mind with new knowledge and your heart – with unforgettable emotions of life in Vietnam.
