PHU YEN, VIETNAM - Zannier Hotels Bãi San Hô is counting on its remote and prestine location to draw small meetings and incentive groups when it opens this December.
Located in Phu Yen, one of Vietnam's most biodiverse regions with a rich fauna and flora, the 71-villa resort with rooms ranging from 41-88 sqm, will offer traditional Vietnamese culture, gastronomy, dramatic landscapes and pristine waters. Phu Yen is a province on Vietnam's South-Central coast, characterised by mountains and beaches. Its capital is Tuy Hoa, and Quy Nhon is the closest city.
The resort's standalone villas are tucked away in 98 hectares of lush vegetation, along a 1km white beach with coral reefs. Phu Yen's dry season starts at the end of December until August. Temperatures range from 25-34°C in the day and around 22°C at night.
Regular transfers from and to the nearby airports of Phù Cát (UIH) in Quy Nhon and Tuy Hoà (TBB) in Phu Yen are provided. They are 60 minutes by car. Limousine transfer services to/from those airports are available for US$50 per person one way (free for children under 6 years old).
"Being located on a remote peninsula with stand-alone villas, our resort is ideal to limit the contact between guests. It can offer all-inclusive packages to make it ideal for MICE customers. With its authentic design and large service offering, Zannier Hôtels Bãi San Hô has many features that differentiates it from the current offer in Phu Yen," said Mr Arnaud Zannier, founder of Zannier Hotels.
