An integrated resort, Laguna Lăng Cô, will open in Vietnam on 1 November 2012.

 Nestled along the coast of tranquil Central Vietnam, Laguna Lăng Cô is Banyan Tree’s first foray in the country, and echoes the ethos of Laguna Phuket, the company’s flagship integrated resort community in southern Thailand.

Framed by a three-kilometre beach and lush countryside, the 280-hectare community resides near Lăng Cô Bay in the Chan May region overlooking the East Sea, an area renowned for its pristine coastline, tropical jungles, rugged mountain peaks and proximity to the country’s most storied UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the cities of Hue and Hoi An along with the relics of My Son.

The development is nestled in a crescent bay, and will include Banyan Tree and Angsana branded hotels and spas, an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Sir Nick Faldo, private villas and residences available for sale, convention facilities and a plethora of recreational activities for guests of all ages.

Phase 1 of the project represents a US$200 million investment funded through the Banyan Tree Indochina Hospitality Fund, the first real estate investment fund established by the group in 2008.

“Banyan Tree has long been interested in establishing a presence in Vietnam to replicate the success of our flagship integrated resort in Phuket,” said Mr. Ho KwonPing, Executive Chairman of Banyan Tree Holdings, Ltd. “Central Vietnam is an ideal foothold for our inaugural development in Indochina with its natural beauty and areas of rich historical interest such as Hue and Hoi An. We are confident that Laguna Lăng Cô will flourish as a holiday and premium properties destination for both domestic and international luxury tourism.”

Hotels

Banyan Tree Lăng Cô features 32 one-bedroom lagoon villas (131 sqm) and 17 one-bedroom beach villas (124 sqm) set on the shores of Canh Duong beach. A spa highlights Banyan Tree’s treatments and services, while a Marine Centre provides opportunities to learn about and explore the vibrant waters of the East Sea.

Banyan Tree’s sister hotel, Angsana Lăng Cô, is a contemporary getaway featuring 229 suites (from 52 sqm to 179 sqm), 100 of which come equipped with their own private pools. All suites in every room category feature picturesque mountain, lagoon, or sea views, and incorporate local materials such as bamboo and mother of pearl, along with traditional arts with a contemporary twist, lanterns and elegant framed calligraphy.

Lăng Cô

Tucked away in traditional Cu Du Village in the Phu Loc District of Thua Thien Hue Province, the rustic hinterland of Laguna Lăng Cô is historically a favoured holiday retreat for Vietnamese royalty. The destination resonates with mystique and natural beauty and is accessible within an hour’s drive from the airports of both Da Nang and Hue.

 Laguna Lăng Cô sits at the crossroads of several distinctive UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the ancient capital city of Hue on the shores of the Perfume River, the charming and age-old city of Hoi An and the ruins of My Son, a sanctuary featuring a wealth of temples and monuments with intricate carvings.

Resort Residences

The resort residences present an array of ownership opportunities with villas and condominium units offering ocean views. Taking inspiration from Vietnamese traditions and culture, each one, two or three-bedroom villa (from 158 sqm – 236 sqm) of Banyan Tree Residences Lăng Cô features a private plunge pool.

 Limited villas are available for sale, and ownership confers membership in Banyan Tree’s worldwideprivate residential community.

Angsana Residences Lăng Cô showcases the rich history of Vietnam with a modern twist. The first three-storey beachfront condominium development of its kind in Vietnam, each one or two-bedroom Angsana Residences home (from 88 sqm to 254 sqm) features a contemporary aesthetic complemented by a modern plunge pool and sea views.

Owners of Banyan Tree and Angsana Residences Lăng Cô will also enjoy exclusive privileges on global exchange programmes, golf memberships and other services offered within Laguna Lăng Cô.

Championship Golf Course

The Laguna Lăng Cô Golf Club, an 18-hole, par-71 championship course designed by Sir Nick Faldo, delivers a golfing experience that can be enjoyed by skilled and novice players alike. The site’s natural rugged terrain has been preserved, offering a distinctive course with changing landscape framed by mountains on three sides and the East Sea to the west. The course weaves between soaring trees, flowing streams, verdant rice paddies and dramatic rock features, and are noted for their oceanfront footage.

Tours & Activities

Laguna Lăng Cô offers a wealth of activities to meet the needs of groups, couples and families of all ages. The Marine Centre features aquatic activities such as jet skiing, parasailing, water skiing, wind surfing, kayaking and banana boat rides, while the Activities Centre offers archery, mountain biking, all-terrain vehicles (ATV), kids’ ATVs, 2-seater mini cars and horse riding. The Handicraft Centre immerses guests in Vietnam’s rich artistic legacy with classes in various fine arts led by local masters.
