I asked myself the same question when booking my visit in July...decided to go with 4. For my personal taste (at any property), 3 feels incomplete, 5 is slightly too long, fortunately, there's just one number in-between the two

Really looking forward to it!

Thanks for the quick reply! Now the only decision is whether to go for the full-board "Hideaway" package (with one daily activity), or to leverage the free fourth night on the "Undiscovered Indochina" package and pay for all meals and activities? What'd you go with?

We had fun for 7 nights, as there is a lot to discover on the grounds and through great excursions.
Also we enjoyed the package, since we did not have to think about money at all through that.

There are some changes happening in the Amanoi Room terminology:

1. Yes, there are still the fantastic Pool Pavillions, they are luckily not demolished.
But they are now called "Pool Villa".

2. The Non-Pool-Pavillions, although same building size as Pool Villas, they are still called "Pavillion".

3. Whereas the things formerly called Villas are now called "Residences".

4. Mid-January two new kinds of room are opened: "Spa Houses", one at the shores of the Lotus Pond, one nearby with views to the mountains. Both with their own pool, treatment room, Hammam, Steam Rooms, Yacuzzi.

I wonder if this change in terminology is going to be global for Aman, specifically Amanpulo, Amanpuri, Amanusa - previously Aman has always shied away from using the word 'villa', except to mean a residence with private chef, butler, pool etc.

Whereas the term 'villa' has been far more liberally used by other resorts to mean anything stand-alone/spacious, where the term 'residence' is more often preferred for what Aman refers to as villas.

You'd be surprised at how much potential business Aman has lost due to this strict terminology.
