Luxury resort set to launch in Vietnam

25th Jun 2012

Visitors to Vietnam will soon have another option for accommodation as the Banyan Tree Group has announced it will launch the country's first integrated luxury resort in November.

The global hotels chain plans to build upon the success with its Laguna Phuket hotel in southern Thailand by constructing a new haven for tourists called Laguna Lăng Cô. It will be the company's first venture on Vietnamese soil.

The resort will span 280 hectares in the Chan May region close to Lăng Cô Bay. Its surroundings feature flourishing countryside on one side and a three kilometre beach on the other, with a view of the East Sea.

It is situated within an area famous for a range of stunning sceneries from jungles to coastlines, and is within close range of Vietnam's UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which include the My Son relics and the cities of Hue and Hoi An.

Guests of the community development can indulge themselves in a multitude of activities, such as spa treatments by Banyan Tree and Angsana hotels, as well as an 18-hole golf course created by Sir Nick Faldo.

The Banyan Tree Indochina Hospitality Fund, a real-estate fund set up by the firm four years ago, provided the first phase of the project with 200 million dollars towards constructing the resort, set to open on November 1 this year.
