Karma Group launches new resort in UNESCO World Heritage site Hoi An, Vietnam
Karma Group is proud to announce the official opening of the completely refurbished Karma Cây Tre, just outside the Vietnamese town of Hoi An, on the banks of the beautiful Do River.
The resort marks the group’s first entry into Vietnam and expands its luxurious boutique portfolio to 27 Karma Resorts worldwide.
Karma Cây Tre is a collection of opulent standalone deluxe rooms spread across 10,000 square metres of verdant gardens. Simplicity and understated elegance combine to create a soothing ambience, where comfort is paramount. Each of the 22 air-conditioned rooms boasts a private balcony, which gazes out over the river, or lush tropical flora.
“We are delighted to welcome Karma Cây Tre to the Karma Family,” said John Spence, Karma Group Founder and Chairman. “Vietnam has an extraordinary mix of history and culture and an increasing reputation for world-class hospitality”.
“I fell in love with the central coast area of Vietnam, with its incredible beauty, rich multicultural heritage and landmark towns like Da Nang, Hué and of course, Hoi An. Throw in stunning beaches and brilliant sights and you have a perfect fit for the Karma experience.”
Karma Cây Tre is located close to historical Hoi An, an alluring destination home to much of the nation’s finest architecture and cultural influence. The town’s cosmopolitan character has continued to develop with the advent of tourism – it’s a great foodie destination and alongside its traditional aspects, the town offers a host of comforts to visitors, from boutique restaurants to sophisticated bars.
Hoi An is a UNESCO world heritage site largely thanks to the Old Town, which is one of the best preserved examples of a trading port in the region. Its culture and heritage derives from the ancient Cham kingdom, which once controlled the lucrative spice trade from far eastern Indonesia. But atop there are a myriad other influences – notably Chinese – and the Old Town is filled with Chinese shop fronts and temples as well as Japanese and European influenced buildings.
