Vinh Hoi Bay Resort & Outrigger Hotels

Outrigger Hotels and Resorts Asia signed an agreement with developer Vietnamese American Hotel and Resort Co. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of American company ITC Spectrum, LLC, to co-design and manage a luxury resort to be built along the central coast of Vietnam. The Outrigger Vinh Hoi Bay Resort and Spa will be part of the fully integrated Vinh Hoi Bay Golf Resort being constructed on 325 hectares with four other hotels along a 1.6-mile secluded white sand beach five miles north of Quy Nhon in Binh Dinh province.

"We look forward to being a part of what is sure to become Vietnam's most recognized resort destination," said Darren Edmonstone, Outrigger's senior vice president for Asia.

Outrigger, a family-owned company with more than 60 years of hospitality experience, said its participation is included in an agreement signed with developer Vietnamese American Hotel and Resort Co. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the American company ITC Spectrum LLC.

"Vinh Hoi Bay is a world of peace and tranquility in an off-the-beaten-path area of rural charm," said Canh Tran, chairman and CEO of ITC Spectrum, "The pristine mountain and beach setting of the Vinh Hoi Bay Golf Resort offers a distinctive variety of environments and varied terrain to provide the basis for the most unique and memorable integrated resort experience in Vietnam."

The five-star Outrigger Vinh Hoi Bay Resort and Spa will offer 210 rooms and themed suites, plus a collection of 46 private villas offering one- and two-bedroom accommodations, and a two-story Grand Villa. Six food and beverage outlets are planned, in addition to a cooking school, a Navasana wellness center, a kids’ and teenager amusement zone, fitness center, library, adventure center and retail outlets.

The Vinh Hoi Bay Golf Resort will include a total of five luxury destination hotels, as well as individual villas, with the centerpiece of the resort being an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II. Other outdoor amenities will include an equestrian center, marina and arboretum. The resort will be completed in multiple phases. Outrigger Vinh Hoi Resort and Spa will begin construction during phase one, with the hotel expected to accept its first guest in late 2013.

Vinh Hoi Bay Resort is located in Binh Dinh province on Vietnam’s central coast, between Danang and Nha Trang. Its origins date back to the 11th century and the Champa kingdom, whose legacy, the Cham culture’s temple complexes, can be seen throughout the province. The topography of Binh Dinh province is diverse and attractive, offering visitors lush highlands, forests, alluvial plains, lakes and beaches, all in one destination. The area is currently served by Phu Cat Airport from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The airport, which is located 21 minutes from Vinh Hoi Bay, is slated to offer direct international flights in the coming years. For more information, visit
