HÀ NỘI — Regent Hotels & Resorts signed a management agreement with Vietnamese property developer BIM Group on Friday in Hà Nội to manage Regent Phu Quoc - a luxury resort and residential development on Phú Quốc Island.
Regent Phu Quoc, which is expected to be launched in 2019, will increase the global luxury hospitality brand’s property portfolio to nine, from current properties in Beijing, Berlin, Chongqing and Porto Montenegro, as well as Singapore and Taipei, along with pipeline developments in Jakarta and Harbin.
Located at Bãi Trường (Long Beach) on the west coast of Việt Nam’s largest island, just 10 minutes drive from the airport, Regent Phu Quoc consists of luxury hotel rooms and private residences in three styles - lake villa, beach villa and sky villa - which offer a magnificent sea view and private pool.
The waterfront property, featuring 400 rooms and world-class facilities, combines indigenous design with the luxurious yet understated essence of Regent Hotels & Resorts to provide guests with an exclusive lifestyle accommodation experience.
Regent Phu Quoc is an important construction of BIM Group’s Phu Quoc Marina, which has an integrated master plan, being developed to become the future tourist mecca of the island.
Đoàn Quốc Việt, chairman of BIM Group, said the cooperation with Regent Hotels and Resorts would create a property which set new standards for Việt Nam’s tourism industry.
Steven Pan, chairman of Regent Hotels & Resorts, said Asia was the focus of the group’s global expansion plans, given the huge potential for the hospitality industry.

Steven said he was deeply touched with BIM Group’s sustainable development value, adding that preserving nature and the environment and doing business in a harmonious way that benefited society were critical for development.
