HỘI AN — Construction of the Cồn Bắp Eco-Resort began in Hội An’s Cẩm Nam Commune on 27.49ha with total investment of VNĐ950 billion (US$42 million) on Monday.
Chairman of Cồn Bắp eco-tour company, the project owner, Đỗ Anh Tuấn told Việt Nam News the resort will include a 142-room hotel, a restaurant, a township residential area and a museum.
He said the company has built a 1.2km concrete dyke on Thu Bồn bank and needs to prepare a construction site, equipment and a road for construction trucks.
Tuấn said the project, which was delayed due to financial difficulties last year, will provide more accommodation and entertainment services for tourists visiting the UNESCO-recognised world heritage city.
The eco-resort will become operational in the first quarter of 2019.
Earlier this year, the Hoàng Gia Hội An company began construction of the Hội An Royal Residences project with total investment of $44.2 million in suburban Hội An.
In the first six months of this year, the city welcomed about 700,000 visitors. — VNS
