Ho Tram Strip was the first integrated resort to have launched in Vietnam. Its immaculate beaches and close distance to Ho Chi Minh City, only a two-hour drive away, has turned it into a renowned leisure area and preferred offsite spot for meetings, incentives, conferencing, exhibitions (MICE).

Once renovated, InterContinental Grand Ho Tram will be able to accommodate its guests in 533 luxury rooms. This integrated resort will have a golf course, gym, spa, outdoor pools, three F&B outlets, a cutting-edge convention centre with five meeting rooms and a large ballroom, and retail space with a variety of entertainment options such as a casino gaming floor, restaurants, lounges, bars, and clubs.

On the other hand, Holiday Inn Resort Ho Tram Beach will have 502 rooms with facilities specially designed for families, including a cinema, food court, water park, bowling arcade, swimming pools, and a 360-degree rooftop bar with magnificent views of the coastline.
