The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) announced on October 30 that the FLC Samson Beach & Golf Resort, invested by the FLC Group, has officially reached international five-star standards.
“This is recognition of the Group’s efforts not only in completing projects sooner than scheduled but also in bringing excellent products and services to the market,” said General Director of the FLC Group Ms. Huong Tran Kieu Dung.
As the first five-star hotel complex and resort in northern Thanh Hoa province, FLC Samson Beach & Golf Resort covers an area of 200 ha and received total investment of VND5.5 trillion ($246.6 million).
