Interval International, a leading global provider of vacation services, has added LiV Resorts, the shared ownership component ofthe Citadines Pearl Hội An, a mixed-use resort development on the outskirts of Da Nang City, Vietnam, to its exchange network. The 21-acre property overlooks An Bang Beach on the South China Sea, named one of the top 25 beaches in Asia by Trip Advisor in 2019.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Abodos Co. Ltd. to the industry with the launch of LiV Resorts, Interval’s first affiliate in Vietnam with a local sales operation,” said Joe Hickman, Interval’s vice president and executive director of business development for Asia-Pacific. “Vietnam is a beautiful destination, with a rich history and cultural heritage rivaling any other country in the region.”
Just a 20-minute drive from the resort, Hội An historic town has beendesignated a UNESCO World Heritage site and is a major draw for international tourists. Laced with canals, the former port is a melting pot of cultures, reflected in its mix of wooden Chinese shophouses and temples, colorful French colonial buildings, ornate Vietnamese tube houses, and a Japanese covered bridge with a pagoda.
The resort’s design celebrates Hội An’s aesthetic and culture, along withthe laid-back feel of An Bang Beach. Set on a lush, palm-shaded lawn, the property includes spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites with an open- plan kitchen, living room, private balconies, and plasma TVs. Amenities at the resort range from a large free-form swimming pool, kid’s pool, to two restaurants and retail shops. A shopping complex with a cinema is coming soon.
“Travelers in Vietnam have only become familiar with vacation ownership over the last few years, opening new opportunities for developers. We situated our property within the Citadines Pearl Hội An complex because its wide array of amenities appeal to consumers of all ages, making it an ideal venue for our new program,” said Nguyen Ky Tam Anh, CEO of LiV Resorts. “We are confident that our relationship with Interval will be most beneficial, as we increase our presence in this sector and build on the opportunity in a growing tourist market.”
