Development is to proceed at the integrated resort island of Quan Lan in northern Quang Ninh province. According to the plan, it will have eight resorts, tourist and residential towns, a golf course, transport and cargo ports, a cultural park, and an industrial park, with all waste processed on the island.

The project was proposed by Mr. Paul Stoll, CEO of Chao Global. The concept aims to elevate Vietnam’s tourism development to new heights and serve as a model development for environmentally-conscious and high-quality tourism. It is supported by the Vietnamese Government, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC), and Arcadis, the lead consultants of the project, and has become part of the country’s master plan approved by the government.

Lifestyle hospitality and tourism brand Chao Global will be in charge of the development of a luxury resort on the integrated resort island. The full-service resort will be located on a stunning 70-ha site and include 160 rooms, 90 villas, and various facilities and services.

“The architecture and design of the resort is spectacular and follows the spirit of environmentally-friendly development, setting the bar high for this new type of quality tourism in Vietnam,” said Mr. Stoll.

Quan Lan is part of the Van Don Special Economic Zone, which has been earmarked to drive economic development in the north of Vietnam with a focus on quality tourism.

The area has already become Vietnam’s hottest investment zone, with fast-rising land prices, strategic incentives, and an international airport, which was opened on December 30. The Hai Phong - Van Don Expressway also opened recently, connecting Hanoi, Hai Phong, Ha Long city, Van Don and Mong Cai, and shortens the previous five hour travel time to two and a half hours.
