A new resort boasting elegant accommodations, top-notch spa facilities and fine dining, all in a stunning oceanfront setting, has opened its doors in Vietnam.
Azerai Ke Ga Bay, the sumptuous, secluded retreat in the south east of the country is the third property in Azerai Resorts’ growing portfolio. The 46-key resort, a combination of suites and private-pool suites, succeeds Princess D’Annam Resort and Spa on the same site following an extensive renovation, and is located 180km east of Ho Chi Minh City on a sweeping five-kilometre white sand beach overlooking the East Sea.
Framed to the north by Ke Ga Island, with its historic 1899-built colonial French lighthouse, and to the south by soaring sand dunes, the resort, which officially opened in November, cultivates one of the most naturally splendid oceanfront settings in the country.
Azerai founder Adrian Zecha said: “Azerai Ke Ga Bay offers much that travellers would look for in a secluded beach resort – panoramic ocean views, lush ginger gardens with tropical trees and flowers, and a location that’s close enough to be easily accessible but far enough away to offer real privacy and escape.”
“At Azerai Ke Ga Bay, like at our other resorts, the destination is just the beginning,” Zecha added.
The guest suites at Azerai Ke Ga Bay evoke a contemporary aesthetic defined by elegance and minimalist design, with 10 units boasting either plunge pools or larger private pools.
The Azerai Spa fronts the ocean with 10 private treatment rooms (six single rooms and four double rooms) in addition to modern hydrotherapy facilities, individual or shared relaxation lounges and daybeds, a beauty studio, a Jacuzzi, and a gym including the latest cardiovascular and strength-training equipment.
The Terrace, The Dining Room and The Living Room provide a variety of dining and lounging options, including both indoor and outdoor settings with views of the beach and pool front tables to invoke a relaxing feeling for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The culinary team crafts an array of local delicacies, with a focus on plentiful offerings from the sea.
The resort’s four swimming pools include an oceanfront pool with sunbeds positioned on terraces, a free-form pool set back from the beach and surrounded by lush tropical gardens, and two square pools set within mirrored courts, flanked by guest rooms.
Also on site is a boutique offering a range of local handmade products, as well as sport and fashion apparel; a children’s centre with babysitting services; and a meeting room for corporate events and functions. The resort’s intimate setting and prime beachfront location and tropical gardens make it well suited to host weddings, family gatherings, and other celebrations.
Azerai Ke Ga Bay marks the brand’s first beach resort, and follows Azerai La Residence, Hue, a historic city resort overlooking the Perfume River in Vietnam’s former imperial capital, and Azerai Can Tho, a peaceful retreat set on a lush islet in the Mekong Delta.
