Hotel brand and management company Dream Hotel Group signed its first hotel in Vietnam with locally owned Beegreen Group to develop Dream Oceanami Villas & Spa in Long Hai, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, the country’s top tourist destination.
Set to open in June 2017, Dream Oceanami Villas & Spa will be the first of four new resort hotels developed by Beegreen Group and managed by Dream Hotel Group in Vietnam over the next two years. Future locations include Vung Tau City, Hoi An, Ho Tram and Con Dao.
The 347-villa resort destination, featuring eight dining and nightlife venues, including its signature Dream Beach Club fronting the South China Sea on a one-kilometre stretch of pristine beach in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, is the first Vietnam development for the brand and a pivotal step in the group’s global expansion strategy. Joining Dream Phuket Hotel & Spa and Dream Bangkok in Thailand, Dream Oceanami Villas & Spa marks the third Asia-Pacific property for the group.
Dream Hotel Group plans to open more than 30 hotels and resorts in Asia over the next four years across all its hotel brands—Dream, Time, The Chatwal and Unscripted—continuing to solidify its burgeoning portfolio.
Earlier this year, Dream Hotel Group announced $1.5 billion in new hotel development for the Dream Hotels brand, including Doha in Qatar, the company’s first foray into the Middle East, and five other U.S. locations, all with independent hotel development partners. Future U.S. locations include Nashville, Dallas, Palm Springs, and two additional New York properties in Times Square and Long Island City.
The news follows that of the highly anticipated David Rockwell-designed Dream Hollywood opening at 6417 Selma Avenue in January 2017, and the first location of Dream Hotel Group’s new Unscripted brand, set to open in Durham, North Carolina in May 2017. Located in the heart of downtown Durham, the 74-room property will breathe new life into the old Jack Tar Motor Lodge, a mid-century design icon reimagined.
