1
Amanoi, Ninh Thuan, Vietnam
  • Your journey through Southeast Asia begins at Amanoi, where great care has been taken to ensure harmonious coexistence between its 36 villas and pavillions and both the coral-rich Vinh Hy Bay and landscapes of Nui Chua National Park.

  • Discreet natural materials, latticed windows, and curving roofs draw on graceful and artfully simple Vietnamese design.

  • Villas and pavilions showcase grand timber sundecks designed for enjoying natural scenes at your leisure.

  • In each destination, each couple will enjoy totally private touring with their own vehicle, driver and guide. In Vietnam, explore the bucolic fishing villages, Cham ruins (above), rugged coastline and national park surrounding Amanoi, or relax down at the beach club.

  • Adventure can be found along a network of rambling trails that lead to rocky peaks, waterfalls, farmlands, protected forests, and quiet beaches.

  • Relax and play in the bay. Amanoi’s private beach allows for romantic picnics, exploration by kayak or catamaran, and a variety of complimentary water sports including Hobie cat sailing, stand-up paddleboarding, windsurfing, and snorkeling.

  • Ancient Cham fishing villages dotting the bay avail local schools, morning markets, and fisheries ready for discovery. Explore the region by bike, following coastal roads and dirt tracks.

2
Amantaka, Luang Prabang, Laos
  • The journey continues to the charming UNESCO town of Luang Prabang, on the banks of the Mekong, where you will stay at stately Amantaka, a restored colonial mansion, surrounded by gardens.

  • Laid around a central courtyard and fringed by manicured lawns, Amantaka’s long breezy corridors and white walls encompass 24 elegantly appointed suites. Each is bright and airy with four-poster beds set under high ceilings, while large terraces offer respite from the sun beneath shady mango trees.

  • The pace of Luang Prabang is seductively slow in Laos’ spirtual capital. Observe the ebb and flow of the Mekong and the saffron hues of robed Buddhist monks treading softly between temples fringed by forests, rolling hills and staggered waterfalls. You have the opportunity to meet local hill tribes including the Tai Lue, Khmu and Akha Erpa in the surrounding areas.

  • The Old Town is a well-preserved townscape of traditional Lao and French urban structures that evoke bygone days. Heritage buildings housing quaint cafes, shops, and museums commingle with gilded temples and stilted wooden homes

  • Take a leisurely cruise upstream on the Mekong past green-carpeted hills and sleepy villages to the holy site of the Pak Ou Caves, a vast network of caverns overlooking the river, where pilgrims have been leaving Buddha statues as offerings for centuries.

  • In the dawn’s breaking light, over 1,200 saffron-robed monks spill from temples and traverse the town accepting alms. Awake early to make your own offering to the monks just as the locals do.

  • Immerse yourself in the spirituality of Luang Prabang and its serene atmosphere. Over 30 temples serve locals and visitors seeking guidance and peace. We have arranged for a special baci ceremony conducted by Prince Tiao Nithakhong Somsanith to commemorate the journey and long-lasting memories you have made.

3
Amansara, Siem Reap, Cambodia
  • Your Southeast Asia odyssey by private jet continues, next stop Siem Reap. The ancient Khmer capital is home to arguably the best-preserved wonder of the ancient world, a growing creative scene, and a unique entry in Aman’s portfolio, Amansara.

  • Once a residence for guests of the king, Amansara is a masterpiece of 1960s New Khmer Modernist architecture. A careful and sensitive restoration brought the building back to its former glory, retaining the original single-level layout, curvilinear pool and monochrome minimalism.

  • Smart suites are minimally dressed in pale terrazzo and timber, opening up to private courtyards with option of garden or pool.

  • Take in Angkor Wat’s full grandeur at daybreak as the sun slowly illuminates its iconic prangs. With your private guide, get close up to Angkor Wat where your first impressions of the complex will be enhanced by the morning light, which highlights the incredible detail and geometric precision.

  • Have your choice of iconic temples spread across the UNESCO-designated Angkor area, including Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm (pictured). Later, take to the skies on a private helicopter flight over Angkor offering an unparalleled angle on the scale and meticulous design of the complex.

  • Seek the modern iterations of olden traditions that hold fast in the rapidly changing town. Haute couture featuring local silk, Khmer acrobatics, cocktails and a private fashion show are all in store, while other activities include meeting the heroic rats trained to detect landmines, and visiting a charity dedicated to providing clean drinking water for local visitors.

  • Marking the last night in Cambodia is a private Khmer banquet on the grounds of Banteay Samré. The evening will include a performance of traditional Cambodian dance, the perfect send-off.

4
Amanpuri, Phuket, Thailand
  • The grand Amanpuri sets the iconic paradisiacal scene: tropical breeze, white sand beach, blue waters, palm trees, and a coconut drink awaits. This idyllic Thailand escape is a short private jet flight over.

  • The original Aman resort claims an entire peninsula and time here is yours to enjoy it all.

  • Set on a hillside on Amanpuri’s peninsula, each hillside pavilion is dressed in contemporary furnishings with traditional Thai teak trimming, and upturned roofs in the style of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya. Oversized bathrooms and secluded sundecks with salas overlooking Phuket’s west coast are made for leisure and lounging.

  • The view of the Andaman from Amanpuri’s pool.

  • Among the special shared experiences in Phuket is an exhilarating helicopter ride over Phang Nga Bay, where hundreds of limestone karst peaks thrust up out of the sea in a variety of formations, towering over the turquoise water.

  • We have also arranged for a private yacht to take you on a cruise through the sparkling waters and karsts of 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. We will drop you off on a secluded island to spend time on the beach and swim. A Champagne lunch is served onboard.

  • Amanpuri’s Beach Club is fully equipped with world-class water sports equipment and activities that you may enjoy at your leisure. If you wish, stop at an elephant sanctuary where you can feed, walk and observe the elephants as they roam throughout the sanctuary, socialize and bathe.

  • Stay at five Amans in just one journey.

  • Handpicked special experiences including art, culture, outdoor adventure and more, thoughtfully curated by Remote Lands’ expert team and Aman’s concierge.

  • Gain a new perspective on Canyon Country’s extraordinary geology with a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon.

  • Enjoy a sleigh ride dinner in the snowy wilds of breathtaking Jackson Hole.

  • Explore idyllic uninhabited islands in the Turks & Caicos archipelago by yacht, fully stocked with Champagne and with a gourmet lunch served.

Catherine Heald

Co-Founder & Ceo
Remote Lands

Catherine is an adventurer, an Asiaphile and a serial entrepreneur. She describes her greatest fear in life as mediocrity, and her second greatest as boredom -- and the combination being the stimulus for Remote Lands. A former software engineer, technology entrepreneur and founder of three software companies since 1989, she considers herself lucky to have found her true calling at the age of 42, and to have been able to turn her life's passion for Asian travel into her profession.

Wanderlust is in Catherine's blood, inherited from her great-grandparents from Pittsburgh who circumnavigated the world multiple times in the 19th century on Asian art and antique-buying trips. Catherine's Asia obsession began back in 1985 when she read James Clavell's 'Tai Pan' and was instantly smitten. She had already lived in France and had traveled widely throughout Europe, but she had never been to Asia, and was determined to go. In 1987 she flew to Hong Kong with two phone numbers in her pocket and her total savings of $1,000, got a job selling Apple computers, and ended up staying for seven years -- travelling constantly all over Asia and the world for both business and pleasure.
