Azerai’s first resort in Vietnam has opened, complete with a spa set beneath a canopy of banyan trees.
Designed by architect Pascal Trahan, Azerai Can Tho is inspired by traditional architecture with a contemporary interpretation and features 60 bedrooms.
The Azerai Spa includes six treatment rooms and two outdoor treatment suites. The spa menu features a range of treatments from deep-tissue to gentle massages, as well as stone therapy, body scrubs, wraps and facials, and therapists use ancient Vietnamese healing techniques. The products are blended with local natural ingredients such as Mekong rice, sweet almond oil and coffee.
A thermal zone includes drenching shower rooms, sauna and steamrooms, tropical rain shower rooms, and ice-therapy fountains.
The resort also includes an infinity swimming pool, tennis court, gym, Pilates studio, and yoga and meditation studio overlooking a canal. Founded by hotelier Adrian Zecha, who launched luxury hotel brand Aman, the first Azerai opened last year in Luang Prabang, Laos
Azerai takes its name from a combination of Zecha’s initials, AZ, and the Persian word ‘caravanserai,’ which means a resting place with a central courtyard for travellers.
