Highly-skilled French hotelier and pre-opening expert brings his extensive experience and expertise to the Swiss hotel brand’s new 500-key seafront destination.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has appointed Brice Borin as the General Manager of Mӧvenpick Resort Cam Ranh, a spectacular new beachfront resort nestled on a 600-metre-long stretch of sand in Khanh Hoa province, on Vietnam’s stunning south-central coast.
A French national, Brice has more than 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry, 20 of which have been spent in Asia Pacific. He has enjoyed GM roles with exclusive hotels including Soori Bali, The Regent Phuket Cape Panwa and The Regent Maldives, and also oversaw the opening of three Anantara resorts.
Most recently, Brice spent two years with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, including a highly successful spell as the pre-opening GM of Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru Maldives. During this role, Brice launched this US$50 million project, which became the Swiss hotel brand’s first location in the Maldives.
“I can think of no better person to oversee the opening and operations of Mӧvenpick Resort Cam Ranh than Brice Borin. With several decades of top-level managerial expertise in Asia Pacific and many hotel openings to his name, Brice knows exactly what it takes to breathe life into a new international resort. I am confident that with Brice at the helm, this will rapidly become one of the most talked-about new destinations on Vietnam’s picturesque coastline,” commented Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of Accor, Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives.
Mӧvenpick Resort Cam Ranh is a breath-taking new seafront destination with a choice of accommodation and fantastic facilities for all types of stay, including family vacations and one-of-a-kind events. The 500-key property comprises 250 rooms and suites, 118 pool villas and 132 residences featuring up to three bedrooms. Every guest will be offered sea views.
Six F&B outlets include a vibrant all-day restaurant and an exotic beach club, while the Swiss Village combines daytime activities such as sports courts, a fitness centre, a clubhouse and billiard room with exhilarating nightlife including a bar, club, karaoke, casino and a beer house. Kids can make a splash in a series of swimming pools and a giant water slide park, while the Cam Ranh Rope Park and climbing wall provide plenty of thrills. The Little Birds Club will keep youngsters fully entertained, while parents can soothe their senses in the Serenity Spa, with 23 treatment rooms.
Finally, for the MICE market, Mӧvenpick Resort Cam Ranh will provide four bright, well-equipped and flexible function spaces, including a 714m² ballroom, plus a selection of exquisite alfresco venues for gala dinners and weddings – including the soft, sandy beach.
“I am thrilled to take on this exciting project. Mӧvenpick Resort Cam Ranh is quite simply world-class, with a range of accommodation and amenities to rival any resort on Vietnam’s long coastline. I look forward to working with our entire team to create outstanding guest experiences, as we introduce a new era of international hospitality to Cam Ranh Bay,” Brice added.
Located just 6km from Cam Ranh International Airport, Mӧvenpick Resort Cam Ranh will become Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ first beachfront resort in Vietnam. It will also complement Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi, a stylish urban hotel in the heart of the country’s capital city.
