Luxurious beachfront resort The Anam has unveiled a 10-night getaway replete with bubbly, roses, massages and more for fans of reality TV series The Bachelor, romantics and honeymooners alike.
Amid fierce competition worldwide, the five-star colonial-inspired resort was selected as the filming location for the grand finale of Der Bachelor, the German spinoff of The Bachelor, a hugely popular American matchmaking show that has notched up more than 20 seasons.
Inspired by the dreamy backdrop of the finale, when real estate agent Daniel Völz, 32, hands over his last rose, Anam has launched its “Following The Bachelor’s Trail” package.
The 10-night experience’s highlights include limousine transfers, a sublime couples massage, bubbles and a bouquet of roses in a stunning villa, and a Vespa trip through the countryside that concludes with a gourmet picnic and wine by a waterfall.
On the same pristine beach captured in Der Bachelor, where toast-brown sand, turquoise waters, dramatic headlands and offshore islands come together as one of Vietnam’s most picture-perfect seaside enclaves, the couple indulges a delectable seafood BBQ dinner under the stars.
The package divides the couple at one point, with one half heading for the resort’s Sri Mara Spa for a three-hour massage, manicure and pedicure, and the other half to the kitchen and the tutelage of professionals. He then decorates the resort’s only table for two on the edge of the lawn fronting the sand with roses and candles before a private waiter serves the five-course seafood feast.
The package also features a private movie screening of either the grand finale or Hollywood films such as La La Land, Forever Love and Pretty Woman at the resort’s cinema, complemented with champagne, popcorn and ice-cream, and access to the Anam’s Colonial Club Lounge where high tea is served. The couple also takes home two plush bathrobes.
“Filming the finale here over 10 nights was such an out-of-this-world experience that we wanted to recreate that romance and magic for the romantic at heart,” said the resort’s founder, owner and chairman Pham Van Hien. “Yet the most marked difference is that couples experience ‘the love nest’ in private, away from the cameras and crew.”
“It was such a coup to film the grand finale at The Anam in up-and-coming Cam Ranh, to showcase our beach, our colonial-era design referencing age-old Vietnamese aesthetics and much more,” added general manager Herbert Laubichler-Pichler.
Blazing new ground in a destination emerging as a high-end alternative to nearby Nha Trang, the independently owned and operated 117-villa and 96-room resort celebrated its grand opening in April last year, cutting the ribbon on a host of world-class facilities including three restaurants and three bars, a ballroom, conference facilities, water sports centre, yoga room and deck, tennis court, gym, three swimming pools and more.
Referencing Vietnam’s bygone Indochine era, Anam’s romantic design evokes a nostalgic tone with its imperial Hue-style roofs, glowing lanterns, big-bellied water vases, decorative pools, customised mosaic floor tiles and stone pathways.
