Best Western Hotels & Resorts has signed a license agreement with Vietnam’s CEO Group for a new resort in Phu Quoc.
Set to open in January 2019, Best Western Premier Sonasea Phu Quoc will offer 565 guestrooms, each featuring a balcony and complimentary Wi-Fi. There will be villas running along the freeform outdoor pools, which stretch down from the main resort building to the beach.
This Best Western property will be one of the 250 projects earmarked for the Vietnamese island
The resort will also offer local and international cuisine, bars, a fitness centre, and access to a private beach.
Said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western’s managing director of international operations – Asia: “Having welcomed a record 10 million international arrivals in 2016, Vietnam continues to surge in popularity among tourists from across the world. With its unspoilt beaches, fast-developing infrastructure and relaxed visa regulations, Phu Quoc is at the forefront of this growth.”
Phu Quoc Island attracted over 550,000 visitors in 1Q2017, an increase of over 80 per cent from the same period last year. This included 139,000 overseas visitors, up 53 percent year-on-year.
And with 250 investment projects worth approximately US$14 billion earmarked for the island, including an expanded international airport, Phu Quoc is expected to continue rising in the years ahead.
