Vietnam’s first U.S. style five-star resort opens in Phu Quoc

Vietnam’s CEO Group recently inaugurated its Best Western Premier Sonasea Phu Quoc resort in the southern province of Kien Giang. Located in Phu Quoc Island’s Duong To Commune, the resort has an area of more than 34,800 square meters and was developed at a cost of $64.6 million USD.

The new resort is Phu Quoc’s first US-style five-star resort and will be managed by Best Western Group. The resort has 549 apartments and 16 high-end sea view villas. The CEO Group is one of the three biggest investors in Phu Quoc and also runs the Novotel Phu Quoc Resort and the Novotel Villas.

Speaking at the resort’s opening ceremony, Mai Anh Nhin, Vice Chairman of the Kien Giang People’s Committee, said the project would help ease the shortage of five-star hotel rooms in Phu Quoc.

Olivier Berrivin, a representative of Best Western in Asia-Pacific region, said the project is one of the largest projects that Best Western Group has undertaken in Vietnam.

Tran Dao Duc, Deputy General Director of CEO Group, said the project showed their company’s commitment to turning Phu Quoc into an international tourism center.
