Ana Mandara Hue sets the standard

18th November 2010 Print

Vietnam’s newest luxury resort – Ana Mandara Hue – is already making its presence felt by establishing a new benchmark for exclusive guest experiences.

Operated by Hotel Collection Indochine, the resort is located 15km east of Hue City and stands on three hectares of tropical parkland fronting 400 metres of white sand beach.

Secrets of Hue and Unique Signature Experiences
Central Vietnam’s historic Hue has always been a favourite destination for travellers to discover monuments, the perfume river and the charm of this beautiful town. Ana Mandara Hue has put together some signature experiences for guests to explore these off-the-beaten-track attractions.

Private excursions include a visit to the Tiger Arena – an Asian version of a Roman Coliseum, where nobility and distinguished guests would watch tigers, elephants and leopards in past battles. Another masterpiece of ancient architecture, and arguably Vietnam’s most beautiful, is Than Toan Bridge. It can be difficult to find but it’s well worth a visit.

Escape cliché excursions with an Ana Mandara Hue private car tour of Central Vietnam’s Hue region. Take a guided tour by traditional cyclo around the laneways, canals and corners of the town that only the locals know; enjoy coffee with them and lunch in local restaurants before enjoying a gourmet picnic on a secluded beach. It is all possible for guests of Ana Mandara Hue.

In fact, one of the biggest secrets has to be the location of Ana Mandara Hue – Thuen Beach – a wide open white sand beach with clear waters and which is still relatively undiscovered. Thuen is a small fishing village on one side, with the picturesque Tam Giang-Cau Hai lagoon on the other.

Ana Mandara Hue is a place where visitors can stay in five-star luxury with a relaxing beach experience whilst combining cultural explorations.

Chef Anthony Kramer presents Hue Flavours at Ana Mandara
When the Nguyen Dynasty relocated to Hue, the Emperors constructed an impressive capital to demonstrate their supremacy over their subjects and their enemies. Within its walls they lived in the Forbidden Purple City to maintain distance from their subjects, who were not permitted to emulate the clothes, music or any other aspects of the Imperial Court lifestyle. This ban extended to food. However, with the passing of time and of the Imperial Court, the cuisine became open to all and placed Hue cooking amongst the country’s finest.

Ana Mandara Hue’s executive chef, Anthony Kramer and his team have designed menus so that visitors and locals can enjoy the exceptional gastronomic specialties of Hue, together with the tastes of Vietnam’s varied regions and styles. The selection is vast, taking advantage of the local fishing village’s catches.

The intimate Vietnamese Restaurant seats only forty guests, ensuring that the preparation and service is personalised with high attention to detail in all aspects of the dining experience. This is truly beachfront dining at its very best.

Boutique Conferences and Meetings 
Undivided attention with personalised and friendly service in a chic resort environment – this is an event to remember at Ana Mandara Hue – from a conference for up to 250 attendees to an intimate board meeting.
