HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Vingroup plans to launch its Vinpearl Resort Phu Quoc in Long Beach area in the district island of Phu Quoc this November.

This would be the second five-star hotel on the island, after the Salinda Premium Resort and Spa opens in mid-August.

The resort, which is now under construction, is spread over 300 hectares and will include a five-star hotel, villas, an entertainment centre and a 27-hole golf course.

According to Vingroup, two blocks of the seven-storey buildings are designed in the shape of an arc that will surround a big swimming pool and 30 villas. Once completed, Vinpearl Phu Quoc will become the largest 5-star hotel on the island, with 750 rooms that can accommodate a maximum of 2,000 people.

The resort also includes a modern conference room with an area of more than 1,500 square metres that will be fully equipped with facilities of international standards.

There will be a special aquarium showcasing hundreds of varieties of fish and other aquatic creatures like penguins, crocodiles, King Crabs, turtles and dolphins. The resort will also offer water sports such as surfing, sailing and scuba diving.

According to a recent CBRE report, Phu Quoc with its warm and turquoise waters, and secluded and sandy beaches attracted more than 622,000 tourists last year, but until now didn't have a single five-star hotel.—VNS
