According to Yoshimune Odaka, general director of Mikazuki Group, the project of expanding Xuan Thieu tourism area will be financed from a total capital of $100 million. This project has an overall area of 12.23 hectares and is located at Xuan Thieu Beach (Hoa Hiep Nam ward), one of the most stunning beaches of Danang.
Odaka said the hotel was designed with a distinct Japanese character and will include a 250-metre swimming pool that is built akin to a glade in a dense forest. There will also be an onsen-style hot-water infinity swimming pool on the top, offering a view from 95 metres above.

All hotel rooms feature an outdoor bath on the balcony, and the smallest room will be 69.5 square metres in area. There will also be a one-hectare indoor entertainment complex behind the hotel. The restaurant will serve oriental dishes centred around Japanese tastes, interwoven with European and Asian buffet dishes. The first phase of the project will be put into operation in 2020 and the complete resort complex will include 500 rooms in 2021.
Mikazuki Group is a famous hotel brand from Japan. Currently, the group has four big hotels in Japan, operating more than 1,000 rooms.
