Meliá Ho Tram Beach Resort to open this month
Heralding a new era for Meliá Hotels International, the resort is the first property to open in southern Vietnam under the Meliá Hotels & Resorts brand and the fourth for Vietnam. Meliá Ho Tram Beach Resort joins Meliá Hanoi, Meliá Danang and Meliá Ba Vi Mountain Retreat as part of the Spanish company’s burgeoning portfolio.
Plans call for Meliá Cam Ranh Bay and Meliá Saigon Central to open in 2020. With a design that pays tribute to contemporary aesthetics and traditional Vietnamese touches, the resort is blazing new ground in Ho Tram, a two-hour drive from Vietnam’s largest metropolis.
When the 17-hectare resort marks its grand opening on April 20th, after a soft launch March 15th, it will cut the ribbon on a host of world-class facilities such as three restaurants including a beach club, three swimming pools, a swim-up bar, a coffee shop, a ten-treatment room spa, an executive lounge, a ballroom and conference facilities, a kids club, gymnasium, gift shop and more.
“Ho Tram is fast developing a reputation as Ho Chi Minh City’s answer to New York’s Hamptons, Rome’s Naples and Sydney’s Blue Mountains; a go-to retreat where the well-heeled flock for a getaway that’s close by, upscale and restorative,” said the resort general manager Manuel Ferriol Argent.
Shaded by 1,800 coconut palms, the resort’s design deploys a neutral palette of colours as a complement to Ho Tram’s sandy shore. Its high ceilings and floor-to-roof glass panels take advantage of the natural surrounds and abundance of sunshine.
The 152 rooms and suites and 61 villas afford unencumbered views of the ocean, lush gardens, lakes and swimming pools, including the 1,491sqm main pool anchoring the resort.
