Experience Vietnam's Emerging Destinations a Different Way with Azerai

Today, people’s definition of luxury has moved beyond the price of a physical object. Many now consider exclusive moments, laughter, health and wellness, knowledge, and culture among the most authentic of luxuries. The resort group Azerai understands this and invites travellers to discover the true essence of Vietnam via three beautiful boutique resorts, which showcase the heart and soul of their destination and make every encounter feel truly priceless.

Created by international hotelier Adrian Zecha, who previously founded Aman Resorts, Azerai’s original concept has already been introduced to three enchanting and intriguing parts of Vietnam: Ke Ga, Can Tho, and Hue. These culturally rich locations all exude a sense of authentic charm and capture the essence of this captivating country.

Each Azerai resort is designed to envelop guests in an ambience of sophisticated yet understated luxury. At Azerai Can Tho, luxury means privacy in elegant low-rise buildings nestled on a secluded islet in the Hau River, which is only accessible by boat, while Azerai Ke Ga Bay immerses visitors in the timeless grace of a luxurious seafront residence, with chic pavilions inspired by the organic hues of sand, stone and sea.

At Azerai La Residence, the joie de vivre spirit of the art-deco era has been revived for today’s discerning explorers.

People are at the heart of great hospitality, and Azerai believes in creating a positive, family atmosphere that permeates every aspect of its guests’ journeys. This is reflected by the longevity of many of its hotel staff, such as the security chief at Azerai La Residence, who has spent 23 years at the hotel, and the executive chef who has delighted diners in Hue for more than ten years. So, whichever destination they choose, every traveller is assured of a warm welcome and heartfelt service.

The Birdview Beachfront Pool Bar

Nestled in 4.5 hectares of tropical gardens on Vietnam’s stunning southeast coast, Azerai Ke Ga Bay invites travellers to experience laid-back luxury in this pristine corner of the country. A curated collection of chic suites, pool suites and pavilions offer between 65 and 185 square metres of personal space, designer interiors and first-class facilities.

When visitors are not relaxing in their own private paradise, enjoying indulgent therapies at the spa or savouring world-class cuisine on an oceanfront terrace, they can stroll along the 5km-long sandy beach, feel the spray of the ocean with water sports, or visit local attractions such as the local salt farms, dragon fruit farms, fishing villages, Ta Cu Mountain temple and so much more.

Within this coastal enclave, culinary enthusiasts can learn the ancient art of Vietnamese cuisine with a new “Five Senses Cooking Class”.

Led by the resort’s culinary experts, guests will experience the timeless flavours and fragrances of Vietnamese ingredients before being taught cooking techniques they can use to wow their friends and family back home.

Deep in the verdant Mekong Delta, Azerai Can Tho is a five-star boutique retreat where luxury-seekers can unwind in privacy and serenity, surrounded by lush tropical gardens.

A collection of pristine one- to five-bedroom pool villas range from an expansive 636 square metres to a truly opulent 1,583 square metres and offer luxurious indoor and alfresco living spaces, panoramic views and even a gym in the Mekong Pool Villa.

With a soothing spa, yoga pavilion and bespoke activities ranging from private boat trips to floating markets to dinners under ancient banyan trees, this is a sanctuary for the senses.

Azerai La Residence, Hue, lets guests step into a glamorous bygone era in Vietnam’s heritage-rich imperial capital. Nestled on the banks of the Perfume River, this former French colonial residence exudes a sophisticated atmosphere with tropical gardens, a revitalising saltwater pool, a bar and a brasserie restaurant.

Travellers seeking “accessible luxury” can choose from six different types of suites with chic interiors, including four-poster beds, parquet floors, and large terraces with views across the gardens or river.
