Radisson Blu, the upper-upscale hotel brand that delivers personalized service in stylish spaces, celebrates the opening of an exceptional new beachfront resort on the pure shores of Vietnam.
The new Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh is nestled on Long Beach, a stunning 18km-long stretch of sand in Khanh Hoa province, on Vietnam’s south-central coast. Located just 10 minutes’ drive from Cam Ranh International Airport, which offers direct connections to and from major Asian cities including Bangkok, Hong Kong, Seoul and Shanghai, this elegant seafront resort will provide an inspiring retreat for domestic and international travelers alike.
Celebrating the beauty of the local culture, Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh brings elements of the Vietnamese fishing heritage into the hotel’s design, from an expansive lobby that features a weave pattern of the fishermen’s baskets, floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the sea, to the warm beige palette complemented by soothing blue and turquoise tones reflective of the sandy shores and calming ocean.
The resort features 292 rooms, suites and pool villas, which range from a generous 45 square meters to an expansive 140 square meters with panoramic ocean views. The 36 villas also boast private pools, cabanas and alfresco dining areas – perfect for life’s special occasions.
Wine and dine at the resort’s six stylish restaurants and bars – Sunrise, the vibrant all-day dining destination; BLU Lobster, the signature Vietnamese restaurant and seafood grill; Cheers Bar Bits N Bites, the lively bar; and Waves Beach Bar, a casual and upbeat beach club. The Lobby Bar offers a sophisticated setting for catching up with family and friends, while the Get Wet Pool Bar is a great spot to enjoy a drink under the tropical sun. Guests staying in premium rooms, suites and villas will enjoy access to the Executive Lounge and an array of services including breakfast, all-day refreshments and evening cocktails.
Guests can relax on the beach along the resort or take part in water sports activities, enjoy the resort’s spa facilities such as the Himalayan crystal salt chamber or Ice grotto, plunge into the outdoor infinity pool or work out in the fully equipped fitness center. Event planners can organize creative meetings and social functions in nine state-of-the-art facilities, including the versatile Grand Ballroom that can seat up to 385 persons for a gala dinner, and all stays are underpinned by Radisson Blu’s ‘Yes I Can!’ service philosophy.
“We are delighted to introduce guests to Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh, our new jewel on Vietnam’s golden coast. With a beachfront setting, outstanding accommodation and world-class facilities, we are confident that this will become a sought-after destination for couples’ escapes, family vacations and memorable events, including weddings. We look forward to welcoming the world to Cam Ranh Bay,” said Peter Tichy, General Manager, Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh.
Radisson Hotel Group is currently embarking on a significant expansion strategy in Vietnam; lead by its upper-upscale Radisson Blu brand, which is suited to the country’s upmarket resort areas. Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh will be the group’s second seafront resort in the country, following Radisson Blu Resort Phu Quoc. Two further projects are in the pipeline: Radisson Blu Hoi An and Radisson Resort Phu Quoc Long Beach.
“Vietnam’s hospitality industry is booming. Fresh opportunities are emerging across the country, driven by a strong economy, record visitor levels and expanding infrastructure. Khanh Hoa province welcomed 2.8 million international visitors in 2018 and leisure travel spending is forecast to increase 6 percent per annum over the next decade. With its beautiful scenery and pristine coast, this region is perfect for the Radisson Blu brand, which is focused on creating characterful hotels in highly desirable destinations,” stated Andre de Jong, Vice President, Operations, South East Asia and Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group.
Vietnam welcomed 11.3 million international visitors in the first eight months of 2019, up 8.7 percent year-on-year. This puts the country firmly on track towards achieving another full-year arrivals record. This upward trend is expected to accelerate in the years to come; the International Air Transport Association (IATA) forecasts that Vietnam will be the world’s fifth fastest-growing aviation market over the next 20 years, adding 112 million annual passengers. Hotel development is also booming, with STR revealing that nationwide room supply is set to surge by almost 30 percent.
With such rapid growth rates in all areas of Vietnam’s travel and tourism industry, Radisson Hotel Group envisages exciting opportunities for its brands’ expansion across this dynamic South East Asian country.
