In recent years, it has been hard to choose an ideal holiday destination for the elderly who prefer shorter trips but longer stays. Many families are therefore considering to invest in a second home – a type of property which can accommodate long stays and offer many healthcare facilities for older family members.

Second home – an ideal destination to relax

Vietnam has been voted by the US News & World Report as one of the three best Asian countries to retire with its typical tropical climate, favourable nature, and reasonable cost.

According to the report, when elderly people choose a place for their sunset years, the cost of food and accommodation are both significant factors but not the deciding ones. The ideal place for retirees must be where they can live happily with their friends, without any pressure.

In Vietnam, there is a growing trend of elderly from the northern provinces visiting resorts in the South Central Coastal areas.

According to statistics from the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, more than 70 per cent of tourists choose the beach as their top vacation destination. Moreover, 60 per cent of northern people prefer going on a vacation instead of just visiting and sightseeing, especially in beaches.

Many older tourists prefer resorts with a warm beach and beautiful, quiet landscapes – yet enough facilities for comfort.

In particular, beautiful beaches with sunshine are often considered a "paradise" for the elderly because bathing is an extremely effective means of preventing and treating osteoporosis.

Elderly people also prefer places with enough felicities for entertainment, tourism, and vacation, meeting the demands of all family members for relaxation without the need to travel far.

According to experts, the development of the second homes with an “all-in-one” concept will meet the demands of multiple generations. Especially, projects catering to the needs of the elderly are shaping up to be an effective investment in the coming time.

Assets for saving

Second home ownership in the south-central provinces has been a gathering storm in the past two years, growing at double-digit annual rates.

Reports from various market research consultants indicate that a major percentage of second home buyers want to have accommodation for long-term holidays for their grandparents and parents when they retire.

The majority of customers prefer second homes located near the sea and part of integrated tourism and resort complexes with a full suite of internal facilities.

The NovaWorld Phan Thiet entertainment and tourism complex developed by Novaland Group appears to be a premier second home product consisting of resort houses and villas offering favourable geographic conditions and plentiful natural endowments. This project has received a great deal of attention from investors and customers in the north recently.

Located on a 1,000 hectare area in Phan Thiet city of Binh Thuan province, NovaWorld Phan Thiet boasts azure seas, breath-taking beaches, hills of golden sand, and especially a long history of Champa culture.

In particular, the project integrates hundreds of world-class facilities with a specialised healthcare centre for the elderly, retirement villages with home-nursing services, an international general hospital system co-operating with international partners in healthcare and beauty care services from Korea, Japan, and Cuba, among others.

Viet, a buyer from Haiphong city said that she and her husband retired two years ago and like to travel to the southern provinces for holidays.

“Recently, I decided to invest in a beachfront townhouse at NovaWorld Phan Thiet for long-term relaxation. Here we can enjoy both the sea and the healthcare services. Later on, Phan Thiet will have its own airport, so our family and relatives can visit to enjoy vacations with our grandparents,” Viet said.

Recently, goalkeeper Dang Van Lam also shared his intention to invest in a second home in NovaWorld Phan Thiet for his parents to relax during the winter holidays. Lam said he was considering and learning more about this project since he was very interested in the facilities, especially the sports facilities and healthcare services for the elderly.

NovaWorld Phan Thiet is offering an attractive investment package for buyers with the initial payment of only 30 per cent. The rest can be paid gradually in 2 years with interest rates from 7 per cent per year.
