Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will manage a new resort with branded residences in Phé Yên, a province on the south-central coast of Vietnam.

Scheduled to open in 2026, Mandarin Oriental, Bai Nom will be the hospitality company’s third property in Vietnam. It will sit on an 800-metre beach, surrounded by plateaus with views of the coastline and the ocean. The architecture and design will incorporate many natural Vietnamese elements and local cultural references.

The resort is being developed by Indochina Kajima, a joint venture between Indochina Capital in Vietnam and Kajima Development Pte in Singapore, a subsidiary of Kajima Corporation in Japan. Mandarin Oriental and the resort’s Owner are working together to ensure the resort is designed and developed in a responsible way.

Mandarin Oriental, Bai Nom’s 72 suites and villas, including 25 Residences at Mandarin Oriental, will be spread across the 29-hectare site. Located on the beach and through the hills, accommodations will feature private terraces and pools. The branded residences will house three to five guestrooms on large lots with private gardens, pools and terraces.

The resort will also be home a Mandarin Oriental branded spa. Sitting on the resort’s cliff top, it will provide 360-degree views of the surrounding area and ocean. In addition to the Group’s signature wellness therapies and treatments, the spa will offer a variety of personalized or group-based practices, from yoga to meditation to fitness training and nutritional guidance. Spa facilities will include indoor and outdoor heat and wet experiences, a 30-metre lap pool and a sunset pavilion serving healthy refreshments.

Other planned amenities and experiences at the resort include:

  • three restaurants and bars offering a variety of cuisines in venues surrounded by nature;
  • a broad range of activities, including water sports, outdoor adventure and local excursions to private coves, dive sites and hiking trails;
  • traditional and Padel tennis courts;
  • and a Children’s Club with dedicated pool and outdoor adventure spaces.

“We are excited to be bringing Mandarin Oriental’s legendary service to what promises to be a world class hotel and we are delighted to be working with our partners who share the same strong commitment to responsible tourism,” Said James Rily, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental. “The project will complement our two hotels under development in Saigon and Da Nang. This will provide our fans with an opportunity to experience three diverse and fascinating aspects of Vietnam.”
