The popular Southeast Asia-focused journey returns in 2024, providing the perfect introduction to the Aman Jet Expeditions, and an in-depth cultural immersion for guests interested in this compelling region. Begin on the dramatic Vietnamese coast and take in the Unesco-listed town of Luang Prabang and the ancient seat of the Khmer Empire in Cambodia before concluding at the original Aman, Amanpuri, in the Andaman Sea.

Our jet is a luxurious custom-outfitted Airbus ACJ 319, modified to feature 19 seats instead of the standard 130, and is one of the finest ultra-long-range private aircraft available. The interior is configured in a spacious lounge design—there are two large cabins—creating a relaxed, comfortable, and social atmosphere that is quite unlike commercial jets.

DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T DO GROUP TRAVEL

Each journey accommodates a maximum of 16-18 guests, ensuring ample space and an exceptionally comfortable in-flight experience, where you want to relax with a book or enjoy a cocktail with new friends. So, while expeditions involve a fun social group atmosphere, they retain the benefits of private travel. With this hybrid model, we describe the Aman Jet Expeditions as being designed for people who do not usually do group travel. 

  • Fitted with 19 seats (instead of 130)
  • Two pilots, two flight attendants, one chef & one engineer
  • Two lounges
  • Three restrooms

Amanoi Vietnam

Perched over Vinh Hy Bay, this secluded retreat inspires both adventure and serenity. There is much to explore within the bounds of Nui Chua National Park: the private beach and colorful coral reefs, and the protected wilderness hugging 20 miles of coastline. Equally powerful paths of discovery are uncovered in the healing philosophy of the Aman Spa, and in pioneering Wellness Villas that offer total immersion in this exceptionally beautiful setting.

Amantaka Laos

The pace of Luang Prabang is seductively slow. Observe the ebb and flow of the Mekong, and see flashes of saffron as the Buddhist monks tread softly between temples in Laos’s spiritual capital. Overlooking the town at the foot of sacred Mount Phousi, the French colonial building retains a genteel tranquility from the past, whereas private pools and an expansive state-of-the-art spa keep contemporary souls in their comfort zone.

Amansara Cambodia

Once a residence for guests of the king, Amansara is a masterpiece of 1960s New Khmer architecture – an unabashedly modern style. A careful and sensitive restoration brought the building back to its former glory, retaining the original single-level layout, curvilinear pool and monochrome minimalism. Gardens and a canopy of mature trees create an introspective atmosphere, continued in the Suites, which open onto private courtyards and ponds.

Amanpuri Thailand

Scattered with coconut palms overlooking the Andaman Sea, the Amanpuri peninsula on Phuket’s west coast provides a peaceful enclave in which to relax and rejuvenate in complete privacy. The iconic flagship resort features Ayutthayuan-style upturned roofs of the guest pavilions sheltering sleek, spacious interiors, which have all received a meticulous reconfiguration, enhancing their Thai design heritage.

Day 1–3

Ninh Thuan
Amanoi

Arrive at Amanoi by private transfer; enjoy a complimentary spa treat and spend the rest of the day relaxing at this stunning bayside resort. Gather in the evening for dinner and cocktails with your fellow guests and expedition leader.

The following day offers a mix of local exploration and leisurely use of Amanoi’s world-class amenities. Discover local villages and markets on an offroad bike ride. Embark on a 45-minute hike to the hidden Temple Cove within the National Park, offering breathtaking views of Amanoi. Enjoy complimentary water sports activities like kayaking, paddleboarding, hobie cat sailing, and snorkeling at Amanoi’s Beach Club. In the afternoon, a special shared experience includes exploring Vinh Hy Bay by boat. Alternatively hike to the summit of Goga Peak for panoramic views of Vietnam’s rugged coastline, or explore the dense forests of Nui Chua National Park.

Day 3–6

Luang Prabang
Amantaka

After a leisurely morning at Amanoi and lunch aboard our private jet, arrive at Amantaka in the Unesco-protected old town of Luang Prabang. In the evening, we have arranged a traditional Baci ceremony for you with a special local guest. 

Your time in Lao is characterized by many memorable experiences including meeting the gentle giants rehomed at an elephant sanctuary, swimming in the waters of the three-tiered Kuang Si Waterfall, delving into the remote hill tribe cultures of northern Laos, shopping for artisanal products at the Hmong Night Market, and more. Highlights include witnessing the timeless tradition of almsgiving, as saffron-robed monks process through the streets at daybreak. A special shared experience sees guests travel up the Mekong River by boat to the hidden Pak Ou Caves, home to over 10,000 Buddha images.

Day 6–9

Siem Reap
Amansara

Arrive in Cambodia in the early afternoon following a short private jet transfer from Luang Prabang. Siem Reap is yours to explore with your private car, driver, and guide — we recommend visiting APOPO Hero Landmine Rats, where trained rats help detect landmines, or exploring the atmospheric Ta Prohm Temple with an archaeologist guide. In the evening, you can attend the mesmerizing Phare Acrobatics Show, a fusion of visual arts, music, and acrobatics. 

The following morning, rise early for a sunrise visit to the iconic Angkor Wat. Witness the grandeur of this 12th-century temple as the sun casts its first rays upon it before exploring the ancient walled city of Angkor Thom, awe-inspiring Bayon Temple, and Banteay Srei, known as the "Citadel of Women," and renowned for its intricate carvings. Later enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter ride over ancient Angkorian ruins. In the evening, enjoy a special private dinner among the evocative temples of Banteay Samré with traditional Cambodian dance performances.

Day 9–11

Phuket
Amanpuri

Arrive at Amanpuri, the original Aman resort, in the sparkling Andaman Sea and enjoy the afternoon at your leisure – with the beach, spa, yoga, gold, scuba diving and water sports all on the agenda. If you wish, charter a private helicopter for a thrilling ride over Phang Nga Bay, where hundreds of towering limestone karsts thrust up out of the turquoise sea. 

The following day, we have arranged a farewell lunch excursion aboard a private yacht. Board a yacht and cruise on the sparkling water of Unesco-listed Phang Nga Bay. The shallow bay comprises 42 islands and at least 28 species of mangrove and is home to many diverse and endangered species, including the dugong. Stop on an island to spend time on the beach and swim. Rest and relax in the tropical bliss of Phuket for the remainder of your time here. 

The following day, enjoy Amanpuri at your leisure before a private transfer to Phuket International Airport, when you are ready.
