HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii-based Outrigger Enterprises Group has announced it will co-design and manage a luxury resort to be built along the central coast of Vietnam.

The five-star Outrigger Vinh Hoi Bay Resort and Spa will be part of the Vinh Hoi Bay Golf Resort being constructed along a secluded beach north of Quy Nhon in Binh Dinh province, the company said Wednesday in a news release.

The hotel that is expected to open in late 2013 will offer 210 guest rooms and suites, 46 private villas and a two-story grand villa. Six food and beverage outlets are planned, in addition to a cooking school, a wellness center, amusement zone, fitness center, library, adventure center and retail outlets.

“We look forward to being a part of what is sure to become Vietnam’s most recognized resort destination,” said Darren Edmonstone, Outrigger’s senior vice president for Asia.

Outrigger, a family-owned company with more than 60 years of hospitality experience, said its participation is included in an agreement signed with developer Vietnamese American Hotel and Resort Co. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the American company ITC Spectrum LLC.

“Vinh Hoi Bay is a world of peace and tranquility in an off-the-beaten-path area of rural charm,” said Canh D Tran, chairman and CEO of ITC Spectrum, “The pristine mountain and beach setting of the Vinh Hoi Bay Golf Resort offers a distinctive variety of environments and varied terrain to provide the basis for the most unique and memorable integrated resort experience in Vietnam.”

The Vinh Hoi Bay Golf Resort will include five luxury destination hotels, as well as individual villas. The centerpiece of the resort will be an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II.
