VinaCapital to Open $4b Casino in Vietnam

The gambling venue of HOIANA will be located on the beaches near the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hoi An and it will feature a hotel with 445 rooms and over 200 residential apartments.
The property comes with a Rosewood luxury resort with 75 villas and 25 residences, a beach clu, a watersport and a diving centre casino and a golf course which are all be included in the first stage of the project building.
The CEO of VinaCapital Don Lam expects HOIANA will become Asia’s most renowned resort destination and a new benchmark for high end tourism in Vietnam.
