Marriott has signed a management agreement with Vietnamese-American Hotel and Resort Limited Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the American company, ITC Spectrum, LLC, for two luxury hotels in Vietnam.

The 100-villa Vinh Hoi Bay-A Ritz-Carlton Reserve will be the first Ritz-Carlton Reserve and the 320-room JW Marriott Vinh Hoi Bay Resort & Spa will be the third JW Marriott property announced for Vietnam. Construction on both properties is expected to begin in early 2012 with openings scheduled for 2014.

Speaking for Marriott International, Mr. Fuller, President & Managing Director, Lodging International, said, “These resorts will rank among the best, most luxurious properties in Asia and we are honored to participate in the emergence of Vietnam as world-class resort destination. We are confident that, given the hospitality of the Vietnamese people coupled with the unique beauty and historic significance of this particular part of Vietnam and the extraordinary ambience of these two distinctive resorts, both properties will be in high demand from the start.”

Both resorts will be located on Vinh Hoi Bay, approximately 25 kilometers north of the city of Quy Nhon, on the central coast of Vietnam. They will be part of a 325-hectare oceanfront, fully-integrated, mixed-use development which will initially include three resorts, including the Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott properties, a championship 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II, residential villas, a retail village, an arboretum and other recreational amenities. Later phase of the development will feature three additional resorts, more residential properties, an equestrian center, a marina and other amenities.

Quy Nhon is located in Binh Dinh province between Danang and Nha Trang. Its origins date back to the 11th century and the Champa kingdom for which its legacy—the Cham culture’s temple complexes - can be seen throughout Quy Nhon. The topography of Binh Dinh province is diverse and attractive, offering visitors lush highlands, forests, alluvial plains, lakes and beaches - all in one destination. The airport, which is located 20 minutes from Vinh Hoi Bay, is slated to offer direct international flights in the coming years.

Vinh Hoi Bay - A Ritz-Carlton Reserve

The 100-villa Ritz-Carlton Reserve will be perched along a hillside on the southern edge of the complex in Quy Nhon. Accommodations will offer ocean views, private plunge pools, indoor and outdoor showers and will be set among lush indigenous flora.

For dining and entertainment, the resort will have three restaurants including a specialty restaurant that will offer its guests sea views and open-air seating, a lounge and bar adjacent to the lobby and a lounge on the beach.

Recreational amenities will include a spa with eight treatment rooms, each with a private steam room, restroom and indoor and outdoor shower and bath, a spa boutique, a yoga/meditation pavilion and a hair and beauty salon. The resort will also have a swimming pool located near the fitness center, children’s and teens clubs and a library/business center. Additional amenities will include a wedding chapel and gift shop.

For social events and small conferences, the resort will have 200 square meters of function space that will be divisible into two sections and will feature an open-air pre-function area.

JW Marriott Vinh Hoi Bay Resort & Spa

The beachfront, 320-room JW Marriott Vinh Hoi Bay Resort & Spa will be the centerpiece of the complex. Besides offering expansive sea views from most guest rooms, the resort will have a lake around which its front entrance, conference facilities, spa and some of its restaurants will be clustered.

Accommodations will have baths with separate showers and tubs; upgraded Griffin Club rooms will have five fixture baths. A stand-alone Griffin Club Villa with indoor lounges and an outdoor patio, permanent food service and reception desk will be located adjacent to the Club rooms and suites wing for the convenience of its guests.

For dining and entertainment, the resort will have four restaurants and a pool bar. Meanwhile, a spacious, contemporary lounge and bar near the lobby will change its mood and look throughout the day, inviting guests to linger over a morning coffee or gather spontaneously with friends or acquaintances from morning through evening.

Recreational amenities will include a spa featuring 10 treatment rooms; three swimming pools including a quiet pool at the Club wing and a separate children’s pool; a state-of-the-art fitness center including sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi; a Kids Club; recreation room/library and a water activities center.

Additional amenities will encompass a full-service business center offering a comprehensive spectrum of business services, hair/beauty salon, concierge desk, gift shop and a retail arcade.

For social events and conferences, the resort will have 960 square meters of function space including three meeting rooms in varying configurations and a board room.

Marriott International currently manages two established and popular properties in Vietnam - the Renaissance Riverside Saigon and the New World Hotel Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City. Four additional properties are currently planned or under construction in Vietnam. They include the 250-room Nha Trang Marriott Hotel and the 200-room Courtyard by Marriott Ham Tan, Vietnam, both of which are scheduled to open in 2013. The 450-room JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi and the 271-room JW Marriott Danang Resort are expected to open in 2014.
