“We can’t wait to officially reveal our revitalized dining and social venues, including a vibrant beach club restaurant with cabanas and live kitchens, our rebranded Italian restaurant, the new Camp Hyatt with its four inspiring outdoor and indoor play zones, a bright and inviting art gallery, revamped pool villas and more. This will enable us to attract affluent travelers to Vietnam and support the country’s tourism recovery,” Heekyung added.
