VinGroup launches luxury resort complex on Phu Quoc island amid pandemic

Phu Quoc United Center stretches over 1,000 hectares in the north of the island

Despite uncertainty when and to which extent global tourism will recover once the Covid-19 pandemic subsides, Vietnam just got a new holiday resort as the country’s property development giant VinGroup officially launched its $2.8-billion resort on the southern island of Phu Quoc.

The “Phu Quoc United Center,” located in the north of the island and described as a “super tourism resort entertainment complex”, opened on April 21 on more than 1,000 hectares, boasting around 12,000 hotel rooms across a number of five-star hotel brands.

Further, the complex includes Vietnam’s largest theme park, VinWonders Phu Quoc, plus an animal conservation park, an 18-hole golf course, a shopping and entertainment precinct, exhibition and conference facilities, multimedia shows, 24-hour street markets and a hospital. The development also comprises the only casino in Vietnam at which locals are allowed to gamble.

“With a diverse ecosystem to meet high-quality life in addition to a large-scale and world-class entertainment industry, Phu Quoc United Center will not be merely an entertainment complex but a top resort, business and luxury product in Vietnam,” VinGroup said in a statement.

“It also marks a step forward, turning Vietnam into a new international destination on the world tourist map,” the statement added.

More luxury resorts

The launch of VinGroup’s new Phu Quoc resort comes shortly after one of its subsidiaries, leisure and hospitality firm Vinpearl Co, announced a proposal to develop a new $2.2-billion integrated resort, also including a casino, on Hon Tre island in southeastern Khanh Hoa province.

If approved, the development would offer a 1,200 room five-star hotel, a convention center and its own transportation system, plus an area for development of more luxury hotels.
