SINGAPORE, 30 November 2015: Carlson Rezidor signed a management contract, last week, with Eurowindow Nha Trang Investment and Tourism Joint Stock Company to manage the Radisson Blu Cam Ranh Bay.
Scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2019, the beachfront property is one of a cluster of tourism and hotel developments now underway along the Cam Ranh Bay coastline.
“As we grow across Asia-Pacific, we are pleased to expand our footprint in Vietnam and in a segment that is currently underserved in the region,” said Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group president, Asia Pacific, Thorsten Kirschke.
Carlson Rezidor property pipeline extends Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang, while it continues to explore upcoming destinations such as Phu Quoc, Hue, Dalat, Quy Nhon, Mui Ne, Sapa, and Hai Phong.
Vietnam is accelerating infrastructural projects related to tourism using a USD 100 million promotional fund, while relaxing of visa regulations and adding more domestic flights and routes.
According to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, the number of international visitors to Vietnam in 2014 was 7,874,312, which represents a 4% increase over the previous year. And international visitors arriving in Hanoi in the first half of 2015 grew 8.8% higher than the same period last year, while Ho Chi Minh City saw a 3% rise in international arrivals.
Radisson Blu Cam Ranh Bay is a 290-key, new build, beachfront resort situated 4 km from Cam Ranh International Airport, which is one of Vietnam’s busiest and expected to handle 8 million passengers annually by 2030.
The hotel will be close to tourist attractions including Ba Ho Waterfalls, Fairy Spring Waterfalls and Thap Ba Hot Springs. The Long Son Pagoda, Po Nagar Temple, Buu Phuoc Pagoda and An Ton Church are also within easy reach.
Radisson Blu has more than 280 hotels in operation in 62 countries.
