Karma Group recently affiliated the newly acquired property, Karma Cây Tre to RCI, the global leader in holiday exchange and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN).
Just outside Hoi An on the banks of the purling Do River is Karma Cây Tre – 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.
The spacious rooms emphasize understated elegance, with an insistence on quality and taste when it comes to décor and furnishings. Guests will 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.
The resort marks the group’s first entry into Vietnam and expands its luxurious boutique portfolio with 17 Karma resorts now available to RCI members.
John Spence, Karma Group Founder and Chairman, said: “We are delighted to announce another resort affiliation with RCI, this time in Vietnam. We look forward to adding even more fantastic resorts in exciting destinations to our successful partnership, to benefit Karma and RCI members.”
RCI members can choose from eight river-view suites designed for couples and honeymooners, six deluxe poolside rooms, or for a more luxurious experience, the superior garden suites offer views of the delicately landscaped gardens.
All suites are decorated to give guests a soothing experience and understated elegance. This RCI Gold Crown resort provides private balconies for guests to relax in the tropical surroundings.
Dimitris Manikis, Vice President of Business Development, RCI Europe/Middle East/Africa, said: “We are excited to strengthen our relationship with Karma Royal Group even further, while expanding our resort offering in Vietnam with the affiliation of Karma Cây Tre.
“Karma Cây Tre is the perfect resort for RCI members looking for rest and relaxation. Vietnam is very much an up and coming destination, and is the ideal choice for members looking for something new from their RCI Exchange Holidays.
“We commit to providing our members with flexibility, choice and quality, and Karma’s vacation exchange destinations help us to deliver on this.”
The latest resort affiliation is located close to historical Hoi An, an alluring destination home to much of the nation’s finest architecture and cultural influence. The cosmopolitan town is also a hotspot for foodies.
