Stay + Play Golf Promotions in Vietnam

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 20 May 2009

Two of Vietnams top golf courses have teamed with three Accor hotels to create a selection of special promotions.

In Dalat, for just US$81 per person per night players receive a Standard Room at the historic Novotel Dalat hotel, 18 holes of golf with caddie at the Dalat Palace Golf Club and breakfast at Caf de la Poste. Stay in a suite and the price is just US$139 per night. Whats more, if guests book more than a night, they receive unlimited golf privileges during their stay.

Those who prefer the next level of luxury in Dalat win, too - thanks to the 5-star Sofitel Dalat Palace, which is offering a Superior Room and 18 holes of golf with caddie at the Dalat Palace Golf Club for US$150 per person per night. The deal includes breakfast at La Rabelais restaurant - in the hotels lobby. As with the Novotel, guests opting to extend their stay receive unlimited golf.

If youre a golfer, these packages couldnt be more attractive, said Jeff Puchalski, Dalat Palace GCs director of golf. You get great golf and luxury lodging for next to nothing. To steal a golf term, theyre right down the fairway.

The promotions are not limited to Dalat, either. Specials can also be scored in Phan Thiet, where the Novotel Ocean Dunes & Golf Resort has gotten into the swing of things, even as high season tees off.

A Standard Room and 18 holes of golf with caddie at the Ocean Dunes Golf Club is available for US$110. Breakfast at either Seahorse restaurant - on the hotels ground floor - or the courses clubhouse is included in that price. Just as in Dalat, stay at least two nights, and enjoy unlimited golf.

Its the perfect time to play too because the clubs tournament schedule dies down this part of year, said Kenny Saunders, Ocean Dunes GCs operations manager. You can pretty much tee it up, whenever you want. And because theres less traffic, the course is in great shape.

The 43-room Sofitel Dalat Palace was built in 1922 as the anchor to the fledgling colonial resort of Dalat, 300 kilometers northeast of Ho Chi Minh City. Twelve years later, the 140-room Novotel Dalat was erected as an annex to the Palace.

The Novotel Ocean Dunes & Golf Resort was the first Accor resort to grace the shores of Vietnam when it opened in 1996. Embraced on three sides by a Nick Faldo - designed golf course and by a private, 1.5-kilometer stretch of the East Sea, the six-storey, 123-room facility continues to stand as beacon of the vibrant resort scene along the South-Central Coast.
