WELCOME TO AMANAKI THAO DIEN

WELCOME TO AMANAKI THAO DIEN

 

To see the world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild  flower
- Auguries of Innocence (1803), William Blake, English poet

Sur la rivage - on the shore - always lies an essence of hope.

        “Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically” thus began D.H. Lawrence’s best known literary work. Such sentiment can be expressed by anyone to ably describe the very age that they’re living.

        Here at Amanaki - i.e hope in [Polynesian] Tongan language - we wish to encapsulate a more balanced hope transcending rejection and acceptance, embracing traditional finesse and modern complexities, embodying both personal yearnings and universal realities.

        Nestled at the inevitable shoreline of changes, Amanaki soars up like a symbolic oasis of harmony and contradictions, an aspiration to bring together the ageless allures of Saigon in a contemporary, internationalizing space.

        Entering Amanaki, one cannot help feeling transposed into a time capsule, where time, like life itself, seems to freeze, with which one attains peace and clarity. Such enables a mental, and within a physical, space necessary for reflection, a mental journey across the not-yets and the could-have-beens, and further beyond.

        From South-Western furnitures to South-Eastern pottery wares, our collection of items in display and use clearly represents the finest values of old, from borrowed French colonial aesthetics of École des Beaux-Arts de l’Indochine (EBAI) to the highly accentuated artistry of South-Vietnam craftspeople and echoes a modern yet experimental twist of multiculturality.  Meanwhile, our respect towards Nature guides us through our daily operations and as an indispensable component of our immersive offered experience.

        In our pursuit of aesthetic and moral pleasures, we turn hope to a tower, and love to a harmony with nature and the community.

        We wish that our visitors dwell upon these values the same way they more often converse with nature anytime they stay at our residence.

        In hope abounds creativity for greater expression.

        Let the dialogue with hope begin.
