The wellness-inspired resort and hotel chain Fusion has announced this week that it will bring a Fusion to the oceanside of Bao Ninh Beach, Dong Hoi, Quang Binh Province.
Fusion Resort Quang Binh
Located at the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park with Son Doong – the world’s largest cave, the three-hectare resort will offer Fusion’s unique all-spa inclusive service plus a range of original, exciting, and wellbeing-oriented concepts and services.
The white and private sands of Bao Ninh Beach will play host to the latest member of the Fusion Resort family, offering the modern traveler the understated five-star elegance for which the brand is well-known.
“Quang Binh is an up-and-coming destination,” says Peter Meyer, Fusion’s Chief Executive Officer. “Exploring Son Doong Cave and the many other natural gems in the area will make this province the newest travelers’ bucket list destination alongside the likes of Ha Long Bay, Sapa, and Hoi An.”
Blending natural and contemporary design elements with a strong focus on earth tones, textures, and materials, the property’s 60 well-appointed villas start at a spacious 132m² (1,421ft²) up to a palatial 800m² (8,611ft²), each offering private gardens and plunge pools and either a sea view or an enclosed tropical garden. Ideal for couples, young families, or groups of friends, the low-lying resort will make full use of the breathtaking views, the surrounding natural vegetation, and the crisp natural light, with floor-to-ceiling windows and an interior colour scheme of the natural world. “Fusion Resort Quang Binh,” adds Peter, “will be an ideal place for Vietnamese and international travelers who are searching for original contemporary design, a healthy and balanced resort experience, and a fresh approach to hospitality. That’s our primary aim with any new resort or hotel development.”
Fusion’s holistic approach to well-being begins with the recognized “all-spa inclusive” service. As with every Fusion Resort before it, Fusion Resort Quang Binh will offer daily spa journeys to all guests at no extra cost – a concept not found anywhere else in Quang Binh. In addition to providing a fresh and often surprising guest experience, even for those familiar with the brand, the resort will launch a new and unique spa concept: Water & Earth. Supported by 10 double treatment rooms, the spa menu will include massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, plus body scrubs, wraps, and a signature mud treatment, all featuring 100% natural products. Complimentary wellness activities such as yoga and meditation will also be offered, plus hot steam and cold plunge experiences for total rejuvenation and a healthy boost to the body’s immunity.
“We always say that vacations are a great time to rest and relax,” adds Peter, “but they’re also an ideal opportunity to get fit, healthy, and active, all the while making some positive lifestyle changes to hopefully last long beyond your time with us.”
As with all Fusion properties, Fusion Resort Quang Binh will boast a selection of dining options including Fresh restaurant, the brand’s signature all-day dining spot (here featuring a rooftop beanbag sun terrace), the Zen Bar, and a seafood restaurant. All will offer indoor and outdoor seating with beautiful views of the ocean and a warm, casual, and friendly Fusion vibe. Bringing wellbeing once again into the spotlight, each menu will feature a carefully balanced selection of nutritious and attractive offerings, each created with the freshest and finest ingredients.
Beyond an international morning buffet, served each day in the spacious Fresh restaurant, Fusion’s flexible “anywhere, anytime” breakfast service invites guests to enjoy the most important meal of the day whether it’s midday or midnight and whether they’re by the pool, on the beach, or in their villa’s stylish custom-made bathtub. “It’s your vacation,” says Peter, “not ours. We want you to have breakfast whenever you want, wherever you want. It’s that simple.”
With the introduction of Fusion Resort Quang Binh, Fusion is expanding into all of Vietnam’s top destinations, with a total of five hotels and resorts now in operation in Da Nang, Cam Ranh, Ho Chi Minh City, and Phu Quoc island. Besides Quang Binh, three more Fusion properties are currently under development for 2019 and 2020 openings including Darwin – a Fusion Original in Ho Chi Minh City, Fusion Resort & Villas Da Nang, and Fusion Suites Vung Tau.
“Our growth continues to be fueled by a rising demand for quality wellness-branded accommodations,” says Peter. “Vietnam’s tourist sector is currently among the fastest developing in the world. Quang Binh alone welcomed over 3.9 million visitors in 2018 and is expecting a total of 4.3 million by the end of 2019, a number that is only expected to increase in the coming years. We hope that Fusion Resort Quang Binh will bring a high level of service to the area’s rapidly developing tourism sector, attracting domestic and foreign tourists alike.”
Since its launch in 2008, Fusion has become a leading innovator of wellness-inspired hotels and resorts and is now the only fully vertically integrated hospitality company in Southeast Asia. Under one roof, Fusion conceptualizes, designs, builds and manages beachside resorts and city hotels through its uniquely branded hospitality concepts. Fusion has opened six resorts and hotels in Vietnam so far, with a team now boasting more than 1,800 employees, including 300 spa specialists. At present, guests can experience Fusion’s original “all-spa inclusive” concept, and “breakfast anytime, anywhere” service, along with their inventive approach to the hospitality sector, in Da Nang, Cam Ranh, Ho Chi Minh City, Hue, and Phu Quoc.
