The Truong Thanh Development Investment Company Limited has recently signed a cooperation agreement with the Ben Thanh Tourist Services JSC and the Viet Finance Investment JSC to co-invest in the Casa Marina Islands Resort and the Bai Xep International Marine Resort in south-central Binh Dinh province.

Mr. Tran Buu An, Deputy Director of the Binh Dinh Investment Promotion Center (IPC), confirmed with VET that “the investment policy for both has been approved by local authorities.”

Under the agreement the three parties will jointly develop the Casa Marina Islands Resort and the Bai Xep International Marine Resort, which have total investment capital of around $36 million and are to be completed by August and December of 2018, respectively.

The Casa Marina Islands Resort is located on the two islands of Hon Dat and Hon Ngang, about 650 meters and 2 km from the coast, respectively. It will be built on an area of 41.3 ha and feature restaurants, bungalows, wharfs, climbing and diving services, electronic and gaming combining, as well as aquaculture and a marine creature preservation area.

It looks out over Bai Xep Resort, giving the two projects a certain harmony, and will have mountain-view resort villas and home-stay areas.

The Bai Xep International Marine Resort is located in an eco-tourism complex in Ghenh Rang ward, about 10 km from the provincial capital of Quy Nhon city, and will cover an area of 19 ha. There are many landscapes and beautiful beaches with strong development potential for eco-tourism and coastal recreation in the area. The fishing village of Bai Xep, known for its wild beauty, was voted among the 16 most amazing destinations in Asia by Business Insider Magazine.

The projects will contribute to the diversification of tourism products and tourism development in Binh Dinh province and the central region, which has been evaluated as having an important role to play in national tourism development in the 2020-2030 period.

Truong Thanh Limited is a unit of the General Security Agency at the Ministry of Public Security while Viet Finance Investment has strong financial potential and has reorganized its resources to focus on tourism development in the central region, including hotels, resorts, and amusement parks, and is pushing for the opening of new domestic and regional flights.

Ben Thanh Tourist is one of the leading travel companies in Vietnam, arranging for growing numbers of tourists to visit the central region every year. It has a skilled management team that will ensure the success of the projects and see them put it into operation as soon as possible.

A subsidiary of Truong Thanh, the Truong Thanh Quy Nhon JSC, has also proposed it invest in Service Tourism Area No. 9 to the west of Quy Nhon, which will be connected with the Casa Marina Islands Resort to form an eco-tourism complex.

The number of domestic and international travelers visiting Binh Dinh province has been increasing and pushing up demand for entertainment and relaxation facilities. Hon Dat and Hon Ngang Islands both have favorable natural locations with major potential for island tourism but are still seeking investors, according to the Binh Dinh IPC.
