Life Resorts and Hoang Tra Travel and Trading Co. Co-developing
a 182-room Resort on Danang's China Beach in Vietnam

DANANG, Viet Nam (22 Sept. 2008) — The Life Resorts signed an agreement with Hoang Tra Travel and Trading Co. last Thursday for the co-development of a 182-room property on Danang’s China Beach.
Life Resort Danang plans to open its four-hectare (10 acre) resort in the fall of 2009. Located three kilometers from downtown Danang and 30 kilometers from Hoi An, the new beachfront property will emerge as the largest entity in Life’s growing suite of owned and managed properties in Vietnam.
“After several years’ operation in nearby Hoi An, we’ve realized that we’ve only scratched the surface of travelers’ interest in central Vietnam,” said Chris Duffy, general director of the Life Resorts. “There’s an incomparable depth of attraction, and density of attraction here, whether a traveler is seeking a profound cultural engagement with this country or a stint on the sands of its most renown beach.”
The resort’s initial design calls for several food & beverage outlets, including a 250-seat flagship venue, a spa and health club, casino and a business center than can accommodate 500 for banquets and 750 in theater-style seating. 
A pair of four-storey hotel blocks house most of the resort’s rooms, including 10 executive suites and a presidential suite. Fifteen stand-alone villas flank one side of a long pool corridor splicing the middle of the resort. 
The new Life property boasts proximity to three UNESCO World Heritage sites — Hoi An, Hue (90km distant) and My Son (40 km), the former colonial French hill stations at Bach Ma and Ba Na, the Marble Mountains, Son Tra Peninsula, Lang Co and the Hai Van Headlands.
The resort will be located on Ho Xuan Huong Street, at Bac My An Beach.

Beyond Danang, Life Resorts owns and operates the 94-room Life Heritage Resort Hoi An. Reopened in August after a major six-month renovation, the resort evokes the colonial splendor of a bygone era on a quiet stretch of the Thu Bon River within walking distance of the trading port’s world-famous downtown. The company also owns and operates the Life Wellness Resort Quy Nhon. Inspired by the architecture of the Kingdom of Champa, the 63-room hideaway boutique is dedicated to the tenets of wellness, from yoga, tai chi and Pilates to an ample range of spa treatments and anti-stress and detox programs.
Elsewhere in Vietnam, the Life Resorts are developing a suite of new resorts, from the limestone karsts of Ninh Binh, to the mountains of Sapa and the emerald waters of Halong Bay. Life Resorts also manages the Blue Ocean Resort in Mui Ne. The 84-room Blue Ocean Resort features a 153-meter private beach, a newly renovated 26-meter swimming pool, as well as some private bungalow plunge pools, on-site waterfalls, fountains, tranquil water features and lush tropical grounds.
