Bangkok, 24 August 2020: Avani Hotels & Resorts, one of Asia's fastest-growing contemporary hotel brands, has announced the signing of the first Avani+ upscale resort in Vietnam - Avani+ Ho Tram Resort (www.avanihotels.com/ho-tram) that is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2023.
The new property will expand Avani Hotels & Resorts' already robust development pipeline in Vietnam. Currently, the brand has a total of three properties under construction in Ho Chi Minh City, Doc Let and Cam Ranh, as well as two hotels in operation in Hai Phong and Quy Nhon.
Developed and owned by Hai Vuong Tourism Joint Stock Company, a German-Vietnamese developer with an established track record for high-end property development in Vietnam and Asia, Avani+ Ho Tram Resort is located in the serene beach town of Ho Tram in Ba Ria, Vung Tau Province, less than a two-hours' drive from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam's largest metropolitan conurbation.
Occupying a scenic beachfront site, the 200-key Avani+ Ho Tram Resort is located in an area that is a rapidly developing destination given its proximity to Ho Chi Minh City, pristine wide beach and the appeal of the action-packed Ho Tram Strip 2.5 kilometres away.
The latter is home to a convention centre, Vietnam's first open table casino, shopping precinct, restaurants, bars and a world-class 18-hole golf course designed by Greg Norman. A new water park under development will undoubtedly add to the destination's appeal. The resort is an excellent base for day trips and half-day adventures: exploring the natural hot springs at Binh Chau, beach-hopping along the coastal road or touring fishing villages and fruit plantations.
Once completed, Avani+ Ho Tram Resort designed by leading German-Vietnamese designers Korn Architects will be the focal point of Hai Vuong Tourism's 'Sanctuary' villa development that will include a lazy river, a beach club, a conference centre and a pier. The property's 200 standard rooms and five 90-sqm bungalows will operate as a resort, while 268 one, two and three-bedroom managed residences in two towers will be available for purchase by individual homeowners and investors.
Avani+ Ho Tram Resort makes good use of Vietnam's sunshine with extensive leisure facilities including two pools, a fitness centre, a kids club and a third-party destination beach club. A spacious, all-encompassing spa will offer re-energising treatments and facials using indigenous ingredients and drawing on regional wellness traditions.
The resort's signature restaurant will serve Thai-Vietnamese seafood, while the all-day dining venue and Pantry by Avani will specialise in international cuisine and refreshments, respectively. The pool bar will be serving up tropical concoctions, mocktails and Vietnam's famous craft brews on tap.
From conferences to product launches, the development offers extensive banquet and meeting facilities that can comfortably accommodate up to 500 guests theatre-style in the state-of-the-art 684-sqm ballroom that is divisible by three. Two additional meeting rooms are ideal for board meetings, teleconferences and more intimate events.
Due for completion in 2025, Long Thanh International Airport is located approximately 40 kilometres east of the centre of Ho Chi Minh City and is a 1.5-hour drive from the resort. In addition to serving domestic and international holidaymakers, it is expected to become a vital commuter airport for business and MICE travellers.
Avani currently operates over 30 hotels and resorts in 18 countries. The brand recently debuted in Cambodia and South Korea. Avani currently has a pipeline of over 15 upcoming hotels, including recently announced projects in Doc Let - Vietnam, Koh Lanta - Thailand, and Nairobi - Kenya.
