Anam Mui Ne channels French colonial charm on Vietnam's south coast

Soak-up Vietnamese beach vibes at The Anam Mui Ne.

A spectacular new property has opened on Vietnam’s south coast this month, overlooking the ocean and channelling the elegance of the Indochine era.

The Anam Mui Ne opened its doors this week at Mui Ne, a popular seaside destination whose closest city is Ho Chi Minh. It is a sister property to the Anam Cam Ranh which opened in 2017. The moniker 'An Nam' comes from the name given to Central Vietnam during the French Indochina period.

The Anam Mui Ne is an independently owned family resort with two restaurants, a bar, spa, two pools, water sports centre (try your hand at kitesurfing, jet skiing, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, bodyboarding, Kymera bodyboarding and surfing), fitness centre, yoga room and a kids’ club. There are six accommodation categories, with rooms set in a 'u' formation and with views of the ocean, gardens, pool and Mui Ne town. Private pool suites and the Presidential Suite lead the suite categories, boasting their own pools, terraces and loungers.

If you come for a stay, don't expect a bland, 'could-be-anywhere' resort experience. Pham Van Hien, the founder and owner of the two Anam properties, played a significant hands-on role in the design of The Anam Mui Ne. The décor is inspired by the aesthetics of the grand colonial era and classic Vietnamese style; think Cham decorative vases, teak furniture, stone from Thanh Hoa and Nghe An and thatched roofs from Binh Thuan. In an inspired touch, Vietnamese artists were commissioned to create 250 oil paintings, one for each room and suite, as well as the lobby, restaurants and hallways.

“My ambition for The Anam has always been to create, through and through, an intimate, classic and distinctly Vietnamese hotel brand that is a welcome counterpoint to the industrialised hotel chains that are increasingly targeting Vietnam with properties that, quite frankly, you could find anywhere,” said Hien.

The Anam Mui Ne soaks up sweeping views of white sand beaches and the South China Sea. Guests can explore the local natural attractions, including dunes, a fishing village and a ‘fairy stream’ - a shallow stream that flows through orange and white limestone formations.

Head over now to beat the rush; an international airport is slated to open in Mui Ne in 2025.
