March 27, 2017 – Karma Group has recently launched the completely refurbished Karma Cây Tre, just outside the Vietnamese town of Hoi An on the banks of the beautiful Do River.
Karma Cây Tre is a collection of opulent standalone deluxe rooms spread across 10,000 square metres of verdant gardens. Here 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 the lush tropical flora of the gardens.
“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.”
The spacious rooms at Karma Cây Tre emphasize understated elegance, with an insistence on quality and taste when it comes to décor and furnishings. Guests enjoy the semi al fresco courtyard restaurant, which serves delicious renditions of classic Vietnamese dishes as well as international fare. Guests can refresh themselves in the expansive pool, enjoy specially prepared barbecues riverside and discover the secrets of the local cuisines with farm tours and cooking classes. Karma Cây Tre is the gateway to one of Southeast Asia’s most exciting and up and coming destinations.
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.
The resort marks the group’s first entry into Vietnam and expands its luxurious boutique portfolio to 27 Karma Resorts worldwide.
