Two sign management agreement for Crowne Plaza Phu Quoc Starbay, which is scheduled to open in 2017.
The InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has signed a management agreement with the Vietnamese real estate investor and developer the M.I.K Corporation (M.I.K) for the 300-room Crowne Plaza Phu Quoc Starbay on Phu Quoc Island.
“Phu Quoc is going through exciting times,” said Ms. Leanne Harwood, Vice President, Operations, South East Asia, at IHG. “We’ve seen the positive impact that development of the new international airport has brought and the upcoming expansion of the cruise terminal will also help drive tourism.”
Visa-free entry for travelers from a number of countries has also helped growth in visitor arrivals. “We’re entering Phu Quoc at a great time and couldn’t have asked for a better location on the island to open Crowne Plaza Phu Quoc Starbay with M.I.K Corporation,” she added.
Slated to open in 2017, Crowne Plaza Phu Quoc Starbay, located along the coast of Dai Beach in the island’s north-west, will be part of the new Star Bay/Green Hill development, which will also feature a lagoon, a beach village and a range of shops, restaurants and bars.
The hotel is close to both the island’s main city of Duong Dong and the new Phu Quoc International Airport, making it a prime venue for corporate and leisure events.
The new Crowne Plaza hotel will also have a business center to address guests’ business needs during their holiday. One of its main highlights will be a beautiful wedding chapel; ideal for couples looking for a unique wedding destination.
Crowne Plaza Phu Quoc Starbay will be IHG’s first hotel on Phu Quoc and the third Crowne Plaza in Vietnam, joining Crowne Plaza West Hanoi and Crowne Plaza Danang.
