Speaking at the ceremony, Mai Anh Nhin, vice chairman of Kien Giang People’s Committee, said the project would help ease the shortage of five-star hotel rooms in Phu Quoc.

Olivier Berrivin, a representative of Best Western in Asia-Pacific region, said the project is one of the largest scale for Best Western Group in Viet Nam.

Tran Dao Duc, deputy general director of CEO Group, said the project showed their commitment to turning Phu Quoc into an international tourism centre. It was also a step to develop a five star resort chain of 3,000 to 5,000 rooms nationwide by 2021. — VNS
