Azerai Ke Gay Bay is an organic oasis where chefs grow fresh fruit, herbs and vegetables to craft flavoursome local dishes. Join the hotel’s culinary experts and learn the art of Vietnamese cuisine, including timeless recipes such as fresh rice paper rolls, caramelised fish, and chicken with lemongrass & chilli.

 

Exploring The Mekong Delta

 

Over at Azerai Can Tho, the enchanting natural retreat nestled on a private islet in the Hau River, a series of experiences connects guests with the unique culture of the Mekong Delta. Accessible only by boat, this verdant retreat promises complete seclusion and serenity, surrounded by lush gardens and dramatic banyan trees. With 60 rooms and five pool villas, this is an oasis of pure tranquillity.

 

Take a boat ride deep into the Mekong Delta and embark on a journey of discovery to the remote village of Phu Ly – the gateway to a hidden Khmer temple which is over 350 years old. Ang Kuli, which means ‘fingers’ in English, was built by hand in 1672. Once inside, you will be blessed by a Khmer monk.

Then return to the resort for a hands-on dessert making class with Azerai Can Tho’s talented chef.

 

Crossing The Frontline DMZ

 

And, at Azerai La Residence, Hue, the sensitively restored Art Deco-style mansion on the banks of the Perfume River, puts guests in the heart of Vietnam’s imperial capital city. First constructed in the 1930s as a French colonial residence, this impressive property features a collection of elegant rooms with river views, a lush tropical garden, a soothing saltwater swimming pool, a bar and a brasserie restaurant.

Hue was on the frontline of the Vietnam War (or American War), and the city still bears the scars of this deadly conflict. Head out to the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) and explore some iconic wartime sites, including the ancient town of Quang Tri, Hien Luong Bridge, Doc Mieu Firebase and the Vinh Moc Tunnels.

 

For something a little more enchanting, take a private cruise down the Perfume River on the hotel’s traditional wooden boat. Locally built, this 55-foot (17-metre) craft can accommodate up to 12 passengers for a series of serene voyages: an afternoon tea cruise, a sunset cocktail cruise and a dinner cruise.

 

Rates at Azerai’s hotels and resorts in Vietnam start from just Bt8,900++ (US$250) net per night.
