2 June 2018 marked a magical and memorable evening for Azerai Can Tho, as the hotel celebrated its Grand Opening with a gala event. The hotel in Can Tho, Vietnam, transformed into a magnificent party ground, where the swimming pool was converted into a fashion catwalk, while guests dined under the stars. From the fireworks display to the beautifully choreographed performance, the evening was presided over by Azula Chairman, Adrian Zecha, Novaland Group Chairman, Bui Thanh Nhon, and international supermodel, Naomi Campbell.
Azerai Can Tho came to life through the combined passion of the leading real estate developer in Vietnam, Novaland Group, and the Azerai Hotel brand of hotelier Adrian Zecha. Azerai offers an ideal resting place, with a blend of Mekong waterscapes, local culture and history, combined with refined services, ensuring relaxation for discernitravellersers.
Bui Thanh Nhon, Chairman of Novaland Group, and investor of Azerai Can Tho shared in his opening speech: “[The] Mekong River is beyond doubt a masterpiece of nature, filled with cultural history. Famous for its variety of tropical fruits, fresh food, riverside beauty and heartwarming locals, Can Tho is truly rich with heritage.
“The Grand Opening of Azerai Can Tho has not just marked a major milestone in the development of Novaland group but also the opening of a brand-new travel destination for the world. With passion and the right efforts, the southwest region will have enough resources to face climate change. The environment, natural landscape and timeless river culture will be preserved. The Mekong Delta will be a place of peace and calmness. [The] Mekong Delta is where we touch our heritage, our traditional values, blended with modern quintessence.”
Adrian Zecha said: “Vietnam is one of the most fascinating … travel destinations, in which the Mekong Delta region is considered as one of the most beautiful landscapes in Asia. With deep local understanding, Novaland group has shared the same orientation and business vision as the Azerai brand: to develop Azerai in line with sustainable tourism development in Can Tho. After three years of construction and lots of efforts by many people, Azerai has exceeded my expectations.”
With its enviable setting and offerings, Azerai Can Tho is a unique lifestyle destination hotel catering to both leisure and business travellers.
Can Tho is the leading city in the Mekong Delta and is regarded as the ‘Rice Bowl’ of Vietnam. A visit to the region will leave heart-warming impressions of the Delta’s vibrant and enduring river culture, and its delightfully diverse colours, images and sounds. Every morning, fishermen and farmers take their sampans and houseboats through tree-lined canals that lead to traditional floating markets and riverside towns.
Located on Au Islet and set in the Hau River, Azerai covers an area of over eight hectares with 60 rooms. Facilities and services include a wide range of fitness-enhancing opportunities as well as a comprehensive spa,
junior zone, restaurants, lounge and bar, boutique, and an arrival pavilion and pier to assist boat transfers to the hotel.
