The Flamingo Cat Ba Beach Resort project started on Saturday with an investment of VND3 trillion (US$132 million).
The resort with a view of Lan Ha Bay is located on Cat Co 1 and Cat Ca 2 beaches, Cat Ba Island, Hai Phong City.
A conference centre with 800-2,000 seats will be built in the resort. It will provide an entertainment area specialised for tourists, cinemas, children games area, cuisine area, swimming pools and a fitness centre.
The project follows the architecture of the Forest In The Sky project located at Flamingo Dai Lai Resort which received five Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies certifications for a green building.
Accordingly, sky villas in the project of Flamingo Cat Ba Beach Resort will provide customers accommodation close to nature.
Nguyen Van Tuan, chairman of the Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism, said the project will contribute to developing the local economy and tourism.
“Before tourists came to Cat Ba Island in the summer only,” said Tuan, “I expect that the project will lure tourists the site all year round.”
The project is scheduled to be completed in the end of 2019. — VNS
