Thua Thien-Hue (VNA) – Multi-industry group Bitexco will splash out nearly 545 billion VND (24.4 million USD) on building the My An hot spring resort in My An village, Phu Duong commune, Phu Vang district, in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue.

Covering an area of 36,762 square metres, the project will include a conventional hall which can serve up to 300 people, a Japanese traditional Onsen bathing and spa, a floating restaurant, villas, and a five-storey hotel and a parking lot.

The resort will feature a special swimming pool and soaking system, which is divided into different sections with various temperatures.

The project will begin in September this year and is expected to become operational in August 2017.

According to initial research from the Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy, My An hot spring contains essential microelements for health, which can be compared with the world’s famous mineral springs like Koundour in Russia and Paven Banis in Bulgaria.

Spa bathing will do good for people’s health, especially those with rheumatism, hypertension and arteriosclerosis.

The My An hot spring resort is one of the projects to be implemented under the cooperation agreement between the provincial People’s Committee and Bitexco Group.

According to Nguyen Van Cao, Chairman of the local People’s Committee, as a strategic investor, Bitexco will develop projects in tourism infrastructure in line with international standards and branch out top-notch tourism products to attract visitors to the locality. They include a 8.5 million USD luxurious hotel and resort under the group’s brand of Aman Resort in Hue city.

The group also upgraded the Sai Gon Morin hotel to meet the five-star standard with an investment of 10 million USD, while establishing a group of international standard hotels and resorts with a total capital of 30-50 million USD to promote Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events (MICE) tourism in the locality.

Earlier, it built two hydropower plants in the province, which generate a combined 200 million kilowatts and contribute 30 billion VND (1.34 million USD) to the local budget every year.-VNA
