Among different projects in Hue under Bitexco investment, the Kawara Mỹ An Onsen Resort is the first resort of the province. Is this a new strategy of the investor?
Mỹ An Onsen Resort is 7km distant from Hue city and close to My An hot spring located in My An village, Phu Duong commune, Phu Vang district, Thua Thien Hue province.
The project is invested by My An Tourism Joint Stock Company, a member of Bitexco Group, with the total investment cost of approximately 600 billion Vnd.

This is a strategic project of My An Company. In 2018, the company focused on the construction design and finished the hot spring drilling survey for the project, as well as to prepare key manpower and look for the Japanese operator to make sure the project once opening would meet the international operational standards.
Besides, the project will create jobs for roughly 250-300 labors at locality. The local tourism labors will also be trained to raise their skills with Japanese experts.
Why does the company select the Japanese partner in this project?
The management contract signing with Kawara Company (Japan) marks a milestone in the development of Kawara Mỹ An Onsen Resort, because Kawara is an experienced operator on onsen and hotels in Japan.
