(23 Feb 2021) Mandarin Oriental has signed a management agreement for a new luxury resort with branded residences in Da Nang, one of Vietnam’s most popular leisure destinations.
The project is scheduled to open in 2024.
The Mandarin Oriental, Da Nang will be located on a 30km stretch of beach which links Da Nang in the north with Hoi An in the south, a great location from which to explore the attractions of the surrounding area, notably Hoi An, My Son and the royal city of Hue, all of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Accommodation will comprise 69 villas and 18 Residences at Mandarin Oriental, each set in their own landscaped gardens with private pools.
The property will also feature five restaurant and bars – all with waterfront settings, a variety of event space, a spa, a large, beachfront outdoor pool, a water sports pavilion and a children’s club.
Two championship golf courses, designed by Colin Montgomerie and Greg Norman, are close by.
“Da Nang is a leading leisure destination in Asia, and we are delighted to be working with our partners to create a world-class resort here together with residences,” said James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental. “The project will complement our hotel in Saigon, which will open in 2022, providing our fans with an opportunity to visit two of Vietnam’s most fascinating destinations,” he added.
The project is owned by Dinh Ba Thanh, a Vietnamese businessman, entrepreneur, and the Founding Chairman of DatVietVAC and The Nam Khang Corporation.
