Anantara Quy Nhon Villas

Mar 18, 2019

A key staging area on the central coast for the U.S. military during the Vietnam War, little-known Quy Nhon is blessed with a perfect parabola of white sand and, to date, minimal invasive tourism. Anantara has just opened the first luxury resort in the region, but with a mere 26 private-pool villas, they’re thankfully still keeping things on the down-low. Marvel at local Cham ruins or doze off in Anantara’s tree-canopy spa: life in this fishing-dominated town is a breeze. JENINNE LEE-ST. JOHN
