PRINCESS D'ÂN-NAM is proud to introduce its Ginger Garden, a unique collection of rare plants, the first of its kind in Vietnam. The focal point of an all-villa luxury resort, the garden adds a touch of tropical freshness to the PRINCESS D'ÂN-NAM’s timeless and magnificent architecture. Nestled among meandering walkways, the resort’s neo-colonial villas are screened by tall, leafy species with fragrant tissues and perfumed flowers with long yellow or red inflorescences. This garden of great beauty was designed by Alan W. Carle, whose work at the Singapore Botanic Gardens won him acclaim. Conceived as a natural transition between the villas and a forest type of environment, it brings a totally novel and fascinating experience to the Vietnam resort landscape. A journey to PRINCESS D'ÂN-NAM is even more rewarding when combined with the exploration of the rich eco-system of Binh Thuan province, with its sand dunes, red canyons and rain forests.
 

Gingers are a common feature of tropical flora. Used as ornaments, spices or medicinal preparations, they vary in height and size. The Etlingera eliator(commonly known as rojak in Malay) can grow to more than 8 meters in height while certain species remain close to ground level. All ginger species are perennial herbs with an underground stem called rhizome, usually aromatic and consumed in mixtures as food or medicine.

              

The edible ginger found in commerce is known botanically as Zingiber officinale, probably originating from the Arabic word Zanjabil and the sanskit word Singabera. The origin of Zingiber officinale is unknown. It could have been cultivated in India or China ages ago and later introduced to South-East Asia. In ancient times, this was one of the most commonly traded spices.

Zinziber gives its name to the whole ginger family, known as Zingiberaceae. The family is comprised of more than 1,000 species, the large majority of which can be found in tropical Asia. Zingiberaceae is part of the order of Zinberales, which is comprised of eight families:
            Musaceae    Zingiberaceae
  Lowiaceae   Costaceae
  Heliconiacae   Cannaceae
  Strelitziaceae   Marantaceae

 
 

 

The Zingiberaceae family is itself comprised of tribes: Globbeae, Zingibereae, Hedychieae, Alpinieae. Gingers are abundant in the lowlands and hill forests between 200m and 500m above sea level. They have been part of Asian culture since ancient times in Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore and their neighboring countries.

 
Gingers are truly amazing plants. An essential feature of South-East Asia flora, their diversity and biology have still not been completely understood or documented; new species are still being discovered. PRINCESS D'ÂN-NAM is proud to contribute to the bio-diversity of Vietnam Binh Thuan province by bringing its unique collection of gingers to the bay of Ke Ga, one of the most scenic locations in Vietnam.
