Two and a half hours beyond Ho Chi Minh City, via a newly constructed highway, Azerai Ke Ga Bay in Vietnam’s Binh Thuan province opens the gate to a corner of the country waiting to be discovered. The careful planning and sustainable development of Azerai Ke Ga Bay has already made a strong impression as an award-nominated and -winning pioneer of 5-star boutique hospitality in this emerging destination, drawing in an adventurous new generation of affluent international guests.

The gorgeous, beachfront boutique resort is defined by 11 acres of landscaped tropical garden and an adjoining 5-kilometer-long sandy beach. As the only international resort tucked into a long-hidden fishing village community, the layout keeps things down to earth with only 57 spacious suites, thoughtfully designed pool suites, spa and three swimming pools and pavilions, and a chic restaurant.

Even with its many sophisticated comforts, Azerai Ke Ga Bay feels worlds away from the country’s big cities and modern high-rise tourism resorts. It was built with intention into an environment allowing visitors to unwind within an unspoiled coastal landscape of natural and cultural wonders, from the pristine beaches to traditional fishing communities, hot springs to the salt fields and fruit gardens. The bay is framed to the west by soaring sand dunes and by Hon Ba Island and Ke Ga Lighthouse to the east. The oldest lighthouse in Vietnam dates to 1897 and can be reached by the hotel’s private boat tours.

Vietnamese hospitality at the resort can be further enhanced by a choice of immersive tours, making Ke Ga Bay an ideal place for travelers who want to balance old-world Vietnamese luxury with adventure. Sustainable activities connecting guests with the spirit of their destination include non-motorized water sports, small-scale tours to local attractions such as dragon fruit farms and village visits virtually free from bustling tourist crowds. At the resort, Vietnamese cooking classes, spa experiences, outdoor yoga and meditation abound.

The newest Azerai location is a part of a recently launched brand of resorts offering guests simple elegance, refined design, and discreet and attentive service in places of unique beauty and cultural interest. It was founded by hotelier Adrian Zecha, who named his hotel group with his initials combined with the latter part of a Persian word, caravanserai, which references the storied old inns of the Middle East. Azerai Ke Ga Bay marks the brand’s first beach resort, following Azerai La Residence in Hue, a historic city resort overlooking the Perfume River in Vietnam’s former imperial capital.

Amansara Review

It was more than a car journey; it was a transition between worlds. At our first hotel in Siem Reap, huge coaches constantly pulled up outside the lobby to deposit or receive international tour groups; we departed in very different style, in a 1965 black Mercedes limousine once owned by King Sihanouk. The mundanities of mass tourism were left behind. We progressed through the chaotic Cambodian streets in regal comfort and soon arrived at a solid gate.
