Dusit International has planted its second flag in Vietnam with the signing of a management agreement with Vietnam-based property developer Hoi An Royal for a beachfront resort.
Dusit Thani Hoi An is expected to open in 2021 in Dien Ban Town, near the UNESCO-heritage town of Hoi An, a popular destination for tourists.
It will be among the largest internationally-branded resorts in the area with 180 guest rooms and 69 luxury villas.
Resort amenities will include an outdoor swimming pool, gym, a bar and lobby lounge, and spa. There will also be several functions rooms for meetings and events.
The resort is within 30 minutes of Da Nang Intenational Airport and within 10 minutes of attractions such as Hoi An’s Riverside and Old Town centre.
“Hoi An’s reputation as a must-visit destination is growing from strength to strength”, said Nguyen Phu Quy, chairman, Hoi An Royal Group.
The town welcomed almost five million visitors last year, up 5% from the 2.4 million in 2017, said Nguyen.
The new signing is Dusit International’s second move into Vietnam. Last May, it opened the Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort on the southern Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc.
