Hoiana is set to be Vietnam’s first world-class integrated resort (IR), with the first phase scheduled to open in 2019. The opening will be headlined by a world-class casino, an ultra-luxury Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, a 445-room hotel and 200 condominiums, as well as a golf course-country club by Robert Trent Jones II. Recreational facilities will include a beach club and entertainment venue for live shows and events, watersports and dive centre, and a promenade packed with bars and restaurants.
Located to the south of the historic town of Hoi An in Quang Nam province, Hoiana is being developed at a cost of US$4 billion in a joint-venture between VinaCapital, a leading investment management and real estate development firm in Vietnam, and Gold Yield Enterprises Ltd, a joint venture between the Suncity Group of Macau and a private investor from Hong Kong.
Over the next 10-15 years, Hoiana’s masterplan envisages a host of complementary tourism and leisure-related projects through subsequent development phases. The ultimate vision is a thriving township of hotels, residential and lifestyle zones, trendy beachfront village, convention centre, hospitality training college, water sports hub, and a giant lagoon for safe year-round swimming. It is estimated that Phase One will create 2,000 jobs for local residents.
The developers have also committed to establishing a hospitality school that will train employees not only for Hoiana, but other tourism businesses in this growing region.
“Hoiana is set to rank among Asia’s most renowned resort destinations, offering a self-contained world of entertainment, leisure, pleasure and luxury lifestyle,” said Amy Do, Hoiana’s head of business development. “This unrivalled, world class integrated resort and leisure playground will set a new benchmark for high-end tourism in Vietnam, bringing economic prosperity and opportunity to Quang Nam province.”
