Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 26 January 2009

Life Resorts has begun construction on its new development among the fabled karsts of Ninh Binh in Vietnam.

A total of 32 bungalows and 42 additional rooms are planned for the Life Wellness Resort Ninh Binh, scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2010. The five hectare site, comprising bungalows and hotel buildings, spa, pool, restaurant, gardens and lotus ponds, will be buffered by 20 additional hectares of protected land near the Thai Vi Temple.

Ninh Binh, with its wonderful heritage as Vietnams 10th Century capital and its otherworldly, limestone landscape, is a destination sure to loom as the next great find in Vietnam, said Chris Duffy, general director of Life Resorts Management Company. At Life Resorts, were mindful of Vietnams incredibly diverse appeal, and were anxious to introduce Ninh Binh to an upscale international audience.

The Ninh Binh resort will be the second, branded Wellness resort in the companys growing portfolio of owned and managed properties. Elsewhere in Vietnam, Life has completed 70% of the work on the prototype of its first boat for Halong Bay. The keels of five additional boats have been laid as Life forms the nascent fleet of the Life Heritage Resort Halong Bay.

Life Resorts is aiming for a December 2009 opening for the Life Resort Danang, a managed, 187-room property now also under construction on Danangs China Beach.

By this time next year, well be on the verge of having twice as much Life-branded stock on the market, said Duffy. In short, were about to double the size of our base.

The company had been working on development of a resort in Sa Pa, but, due to the current economic climate, those plans have been put on hold indefinitely.

Like the companys Wellness resort in Quy Nhon, which trades on the appeal of Cham architecture, the Ninh Binh property will echo the appeal of north-central Vietnam. The resort has been designed to look and feel like a Vietnamese village, with cottages, stone houses, cobbled streets and proximity to a 500-year-old temple.

The bungalow rooms be around 65 square-meters in size and feature private, individual gardens. The Life Spa will detail a full range of massage treatments, body wraps and baths in an inimitable, natural setting.
