Agreement signed over development of resort, to be opened in 2017.
M.I.K Land Company signed a management contract on December 8 with Mövenpick Hotels & Resort, a Swiss hospitality group, for an integrated resort on Phu Quoc Island. M.I.K Land will become the exclusive unit developing the project while Mövenpick will be responsible for management and consulting.
“Mövenpick Resort Phu Quoc will create new standards for hotels and resorts in Vietnam and bring the island onto the international tourism map,” said Deputy General Director of M.I.K Land, Mr. Le Thi Hai Chau. “We chose the group to cooperate with based on its reputation, with extensive experience in the hotel business and its rapid expansion in the Asian hotel market.”
The resort is expected to be operational by 2017 on an area of about 50 ha, with around 250 rooms, 100 apartments, and 50 villas. Additional facilities include a retail area called “Swiss Village”, a water park and a pool, a spa, a 1,000 sq m conference center, a theater, an outdoor cooking school, beach clubs, children’s play areas, a water sports center, a fitness area, and adventure activities. The resort will have a vocational hospitality school with fully-equipped accommodation for students.
“This attractive project will be a key project in Vietnam and is considered the first step of the group to expand its management of large-scale resorts across the region,” said CEO of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Mr. Jean Gabriel Peres.
On the same day M.I.K Land also signed a strategic cooperation agreement with two leading groups in construction and design consultancy - the Hoa Binh Construction Group and Baumschlager Eberle Vietnam - to implement projects of MIK Land in Vietnam.
