Lush Landscaping at Asian Hotels Rivals Botanical Gardens

A rose is a rose is a rose, but the same can’t be said of a garden. From Bali to Vietnam, gardens can be places of sanctuary and healing in more ways than one.

Meticulously Landscaped Gardens Offer Lush Haven for Luxury Villas in Central Vietnam

At Maia Resort Quy Nhon in south-central Vietnam, the star of the garden is the meticulously nurtured helioptropium foertherianum, locally known as the Storm tree, which provides a verdant frame around each of the resort’s private luxury villas. Nestled in an idyllic beachside location, Maia Resort Quy Nhon is renowned for its magnificent landscaped gardens and golden sands alike. A dedicated 37-person landscaping team tends the resort’s lush grounds, ensuring that they are always at their most presentable. Pathways at the resort are also lined with towering palm trees that sway gently in the seaside breeze.

Lotus Ponds and Mythical Sculptures in a Balinese Resort

Ubud is known as the spiritual heart of Bali so it makes sense to take in a flower imbued with sacred meaning in this popular spot. The lotus flower, associated with rebirth and resilience, can be found throughout Tanah Gajah, a Resort by Hadiprana, with several lotus ponds graced by swans within the tropical grounds. The most impressive of which cascades out from the main swimming pool. Equally as captivating are the more than two dozen stone Ganesh sculptures dotted throughout the gardens. Each of which was either personally found or commissioned by the late Hendra Hadiprana, a pioneer in Indonesia’s art scene. 

Thousands of Palm Trees Shade A Cam Ranh Resort

A lush 12-hectare property overlooking Long Beach’s white sands and turquoise waters, The Anam Cam Ranh is dotted by some 3000 native palm trees. Along with pink and white Frangipani, Banyan trees, banana fans, hedges of hibiscus and bougainvillea, and beds of spider lily and canna, the impressive number of palm trees anchor the resort’s landscaping and cool the beachfront plot amid a tropical climate averaging 26.7 degrees Celsius year round. The resort’s verdant landscaping involved precise planning at the very earliest stages to ensure plant placement did not require adjustment once construction began. 

Flowering Gardens Make for a Burst of Colour on Scenic Vietnamese Peninsula 

The 84-acre resort Alma Cam Ranh is festooned in flowers year-round, making its gardens a perennial riot of colour.  The abundance of Costus Woodsonii, better known as Red Button Ginger, is a highlight, dotting the landscaping with scarlett cones that attract plenty of butterflies and bees. With edible orange-yellow flowers emerging from the plant’s vivid red bracts, the plant is believed to treat all sorts of ailments from high blood pressure and bladder disorders, to ear infections and sore throats. Alma’s green thumbs tend to a variety of flowering plants including Purple Showers, Yellow Bell, Plumeria, Bougainvillea, Cherry Blossom, and Freshwater Mangrove, as well coconut, banana and mango trees.
