Starwoods Westin Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement with Phat Dat Real Estate Development Corporation for a Westin resort to be developed on a beachfront site in Cam Ranh Bay, Khanh Hoa Province on the southeastern coast of Vietnam. The 330-room Westin is targeted to open in 2012.

The Westin Resort & Spa, Cam Ranh will feature 330 rooms and a range of Westin products and services including the Westin Heavenly Bed, Westin WORKOUT and Heavenly Spa. Other hotel facilities will also include eight food and beverage outlets, a health club, swimming pools, Westin Heavenly Spa, Westin Kids Club, business center and a retail shop.

Cam Ranh Bay is a protected inlet off the South China Sea situated between Phan Rang and Nha Trang, approximately 290 kilometers northeast of Ho Chi Minh City. It is well-known for its white sandy beaches and pristine turquoise waters. The site features an extensive beach frontage of 550 meters.

Due to the beachfront location and undulating terrain of the site, all guest rooms and villas will feature views of the ocean. The Westin resort is approximately a 10-minute drive from Cam Ranh airport and a 40-minute drive to the Nha Trang city center, the capital of Khanh Hoa Province.
