This is the second consecutive year the resort has earned the first ranking in the two categories. Graham Cooke, founder of the World Travel Awards, said that the recipients exemplified the best of Asia's travel and hospitality industries. “They are all playing starring roles in spearheading the travel and tourism recovery,” Cooke indicated.

Nestled amid lush greenery and the blue ocean, the starfish-shaped resort on Bai Truong does not aim to overwhelm visitors with stuffy, luxurious design but rather to exude intimacy, serenity, and sincerity via simple yet meticulous and sophisticated details.
