Cam Ranh, new tourist destination in Khanh Hoa Province

Tuesday, Jan 08, 2019 16:00

For many years now the south-central province of Khanh Hoa has been a popular destination on the Vietnamese tourism map with its very famous tourism city of Nha Trang.

In recent times, however, Cam Ranh has become an alternative choice for people visiting Khanh Hoa.

With wild beaches, including Dai, and primeval forests, Cam Ranh is becoming an attractive destination with many features different from Nha Trang.

Demand for leisure tourism keeps increasing

A report from the province Department of Tourism said the number of visitors coming to the province grew by 17 per cent a year in 2010-17.

As of the end of November this year the province received over 6,3 million visitors. Of the arrivals, nearly 2.6 million were foreigners, a 39 per cent rise.

This year there has been a sharp rise in the number of tourists from South Korea, Malaysia, China, and Russia.

It is notable that the average stay by travellers, especially foreigners, at hotels in Khanh Hoa is quite high compared to other coastal cities. It now stands at 3.95 days and is increasing year after year.

Chinese tourists stay for three to four days when visiting Khanh Hoa while Russian travellers often stay between 10 and 12 days.

It is this long period of stay that has spurred the development of the luxury hospitality market in Khanh Hoa.

They staying-time in Khan Hoa is quite high than other coastal provinces

While the tourism sector in Nha Trang is steady and haslittle land for further development, Cam Ranh is becoming an alternative tourism destination in Khanh Hoa.

The place will be developed with many facilities like leisure tourism areas, airport and trade and conference centres that meet national and international standards.

Cam Ranh, choice of high-income tourists

Cam Ranh has a plethora of tourism attractions with its many bays and islands.

Thanks to its nice, warm weather all year round, Cam Ranh has become an ideal destination for tourists who prefer to enjoy sunny summer and avoid cold winters.

Three-star hotels, which account for 36 per cent of the rooms available in Nha Trang, are now the main segment.

In Cam Ranh all the hotels that have opened since the second quarter of this year are five-star properties. The average occupancy rate is 75 per cent.

Terminal 2, which opened at the Cam Ranh International Airport last June, is expected to boost local tourism.

Transportation infrastructure has developed strongly here. Cam Ranh is also at the crossroads of roads, railway, air transport, and international and domestic maritime transport. Thanks to this, Cam Ranh will surely become the key tourism destination in the south-central region.

At the end of June terminal 2 at the Cam Ranh International Airport was put into operation with a capacity of four million passengers a year, and the capacity will be doubled by 2030.

Giant investor flocks to the market

Novaland entered the Cam Ranh hospitality market with a new project called Novabeach Cam Ranh.

The million-dollar resort hub in Cam Ranh is along the 8km Dai Beach between Cam Ranh International Airport and Nha Trang. Dai beach has attracted many giant developers and foreign hospitality players.

Giant developer Novaland Group has announced its 2019 strategy, which will see it develop NovaBeach Cam Ranh Resort in Cam Ranh.

It will have a 350m beach and be situated 10 minutes from Cam Ranh International Airport.

NovaBeach Cam Ranh Resort will be a complex containing villas, bungalows, hotels, condotels, and many international-standard amenities.

Novaland Group signs agreement contact with Minor Hotels Group

NovaBeach will be operated by Minor Hotels group,which is famous for brands like AVANI, and Oaks.

Minor operates 530 hotels with 76,000 rooms in 51 countries around the world.

Being a member of the Global Hotel Allience, the biggest luxury hotel manager in the world, it had over 10 million loyalty members in 76 countries as of the second quarter of this year.

The tie-up between Novaland and Minor Hotels surely augurs high profits for the project when it is up and running.
