Making The Most Of Quarantinetime
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, people all over Vietnam have been urged to practice social distancing to protect themselves, their families and the people around them from the virus. In the busy modern world and the hustle and bustle of Vietnam’s major cities, all of a sudden, we have all found ourselves with more time on our hands than ever before.
While it feels like another lifetime, it was just a few short months since we were all rushing around with our work, our to-do-lists, as well our kids and their education and their other activities. How quickly the world changed! Now we find ourselves with Ministries issuing Stay Home orders and quarantine camps nationwide to attempt to contain the pandemic and flatten the infection curve. So how do we make the most of this sudden influx of free time?
Spend time with your family
With those to-do lists suddenly looking a little clearer, there may never be a better time to build lasting bonds with your family and take the chance to spend quality time with your relatives.
We are normally out most nights – dinners with clients and partners and work events fill our evenings faster than we sometimes realize. Now is the time to prepare family dinners, to teach the kids some of their favorite recipes, and then spend the evening helping them with their online homework.
And while we are always focusing on our kids, let’s also not forget our own parents. Don’t forget to call grandma and grandpa and make sure they are doing well and getting to spend some precious time with their grandchildren.
It’s often hard to find the time to simply finish that book you started on your last vacation. Now’s the time! Maybe even join online classes in areas that interest you to make sure that when the office reopens, you are performing at your peak.
We often extol the virtues of reading to our kids, yet forget to pick up a book ourselves. Reading has proven its worth time and time again in everything from knowledge on any topic imaginable, to improving vocabularies, to better focus on concentration. Now’s the time! Whether you kick off the new program with some bedtime fiction or start your morning focused on some non-fiction in your field of work, now’s the time to hit the books!
The amount of online course materials and educational videos available – either free or paid – is staggering. There is a Ted talk for everything, and they are all online and subtitled in virtually any language you can think of. Meanwhile there are prominent sites offering university level education for either free or nominal charges – often with certification at the end. Courses can be anything from a few hours to a few weeks, and with the lockdown freeing us up, there’s so much out there to learn.
Refresh your living environment
Clear that clutter! It’s super therapeutic to climb into the old cupboards and closets, find those old outfits you can’t imagine you ever wore anywhere, and those old appliances that you never used but seemed like a good idea at the time! It’s time for them to go! Donate the clothes, sell the appliances, give things away to people who will put them to better use. A clean home is a happy home, so get to it.
And, as an added bonus, cleaning up burns about 200 calories an hour, so it counts as exercise too!
Don’t forget your home workouts
The Ministry of Health has recommended everyone get moving to keep immune systems firing on all cylinders throughout the pandemic. The Ministry has suggested 30 minutes a day will keep your body in tune, and why not share the time with the kids. While the gyms are closed in many provinces, a lot of them are offering streaming workouts such as Cali x Home, so join those and keep in shape!
Research your next vacation
We’re all starting to fantasize about beaches and sunsets while we are trapped inside. So why not pull the family together and start planning your next getaway.
There are great deals everywhere right now.
Just a couple of hours out of Ho Chi Minh City, The Grand Ho Tram Resort and Casino is offering three terrific getaways, including 30% room rate discounts in their City Escape Package, their three nights for the price of two “Stay 3 Pay 2” package, and 50% reductions on rates and F&B vouchers for the Family Staycation deal it now offers.
The airlines are also offering amazing deals, including unlimited domestic travel vouchers for those looking to explore the country while international travel remains restricted.
While the social distancing program continues around Vietnam, and is vital to Vietnam’s war on the COVID-19 virus’ spread, it does present some opportunities for us all to better ourselves and better our relationships with the people that matter the most.
KAHUNA TO MAKE WAVES IN HO TRAM
HTP announces new villa and condo development at Ho Tram Strip
Ho Tram, Vietnam, 15 June 2017: The Ho Tram Project Company (HTP) today announced the development of the third phase of its Ho Tram Strip project, its residential tower, condotel and villa development.
Kahuna Ho Tram Strip, is a 244-key development located adjacent to the north-side of The Grand and will feature a combination of 164 one and two bedroom condominiums as well as eight penthouses located inside a 12 storey tower, as well as 44 premium beach villas, ranging in size from 218 to 223 square meters.
Named for the legendary waves of Hawaii, Kahuna continues HTP’s long history of bringing world class entertainment and hospitality offerings to Vietnam.
“The company that first brought Vegas to Vietnam, brought the best Asian Tour event that the golfing world has seen is today thrilled to announce that we are riding that Hawaiian wave across the Pacific and on to the shores of Vietnam’s East Sea with our new residential development,” said HTP’s Executive Chairman Michael Kelly.
“We have made it our primary focus to ensure that Ho Tram is Vietnam’s entertainment capital, and in line with this, The Grand has unveiled countless new lifestyle amenities.
We are viewing Kahuna as an extension of this. This is not just another residential development, this is a chance to be a part of all of the energy that has made the Ho Tram Strip what it is today,” Mr. Kelly continued.
The company, which also offers the course-side residential Gallery Villas, located on its adjacent golf course, The Bluffs, has been extremely active in the past year. Its second hotel tower – The Beach Club – is quickly rising and is set to begin welcoming guests to its 559 rooms early in 2018; and plans are underway for the commencement of facilities ranging from waterparks and amphitheaters to HTP’s planned international private airport. Pricing for condominiums begins from US$88,800, while villas begin at US$350,000. Kahuna has been designed by leading HCMC based architectural firm Korn Architects and anticipates breaking ground in Q4 2017.
HTP – a wholly owned subsidiary of Asian Coast Development Ltd. – is the largest international investor in Vietnam’s rapidly expanding tourism industry, and among the largest private-equity US investors operating in the nation today. It has thus far deployed and committed over US$1.1 billion of the total $4 billion investment it intends to make into the Ho Tram Strip project. The Grand Ho Tram Strip houses Vietnam’s first international-standard casino which was the first official facility licensed to offer live gaming to foreign patrons from the resort’s opening four years ago. HTP recently became the first company to submit an application to host Vietnamese nationals for a pilot gaming project.
THE GRAND HOSTS ORPHANAGE FOR TWO-NIGHT VIP PARTY
Ho Tram, 5 July 2017: Vietnam’s entertainment capital, the Ho Tram Strip, today hosted the kids of Allambie for two fun-filled nights at the award-winning Grand Ho Tram Strip. Grounded in the empathy of its founder, Ms. Suzanne Thi Hien Hook, herself orphaned during the Vietnam-American War, before being adopted by a family in England. She returned to the land of her birth in 2007, planning to spend a year teaching English to other orphans, only to find a one year project become a transformative mission to raise the orphaned-kids of the nation.
Thus, Allambie was formed – a UK-registered charity noted for channeling 100 percent of its proceeds direct to the kids it assists. Located in Ho Chi Minh City, the center aims to provide a family for kids whom fate and circumstance have found themselves without one of their own.
“It is hard to hear Suzanne’s story without being touched,” said The Grand Ho Tram StripExecutive Chairman, Mr. Michael Kelly. “We looked at all kinds of ways to support Allambie, and decided maybe the best way to start would be to give them a day of fun – Ho TramStyle!”
“Our team followed the kids around the resort for a while today,” he continued. “The team has all been humbled by seeing the looks on their faces when they take in all that we often take for granted for the first time. I hope that today’s little celebration with them kick-starts a long and fruitful partnership between Allambie and The Grand.”
“This was a trip of a life time for our kids,” said Suzanne. “Many of the kids in our center had never even seen the ocean before. They have had such hard lives that giving them a day like this – away from the realities of orphaned life – provides them with memories to take forward, into the class-room and into their lives. It gives them something to aspire to, something to dream of.” “We’ve been able to make a real difference in the lives of our kids,” said Suzanne, citing Sa, her long-time friend, and the first orphan to move from the care of Allambie into tertiary education. “Sa told me in 2007 that she dreamed of one day becoming a tour-guide, and her hard work and determination sees her about to graduate with a diploma in Tourism Management, fulfilling a dream that once must have seemed impossible.”
Learning of this, Mr. Kelly remarked: “Then she can start her career with us,” before offering Sa an internship with the company to commence upon her graduation in September – an offer that Sa described as “the best news of my life”. Co-organized with Saigon SOS, the trip to Ho Tram saw the kids of Allambie spend their days swimming, water-sliding, mini-golfing, shooting hoops, and trying their hand at various watersports, before capping off the day in the new Khoi Barbecue restaurant, where they were the first guests to sample the seafood delights on offer before being tucked-in to their suites for the evening.
In addition to the US$1.1 billion that Ho Tram Strip developer, Asian Coast Development Ltd has in deployed and future-deployed capital, the company has a long history of supporting causes around the nation, including work with Operation Smile, the Red Cross, the Vung Tau Tourism Vocational College, Ho Tram Water Safety, and it regularly hosts charity golf events and conducts giveaways to local residents at Tet.

The Grand reopens Khói Barbecue following major expansion and renovation
Ho Tram, 7 July 2017: The Grand Ho Tram Strip today declared its all new Khói Barbecue “open for business” in a celebration at the site that also saw a preview of The Grand‟s new water fountain show and an exclusive VIP luncheon for a group of Vietnamese orphans who were visiting the site with Allambie Orphanage.
Nestled between two of the integrated resort’s five pools, with views across the water’s surface toward Vietnam’s East Sea on one side, and at The Grand’s forthcoming fountain-show on the other, the Khói seafood barbecue was first launched in mid-2016.
“Khói became an instant phenomenon,” explained Michael Kelly, Executive Chairman of The Grand Ho Tram Strip. “We had line-ups every week. So, today, after a six-week full refurbishment, the new Khói is open for business.” Named for the Vietnamese word for „smoke‟, the 100-seat Khói spans 400 square meters, and features freshly caught delicacies of the deep, sourced market-fresh.
The restaurant now includes six live tanks with both salt and fresh water fish on display for diners, and indoor/outdoor seating options. The Grand’s Executive Chef, Mr. Jean-Francois Meteigner, who was tasked with designing the menu for Khói commented that Vietnam is the real star in the barbecue outlet’s offering.
“Seafood direct from the ocean before us, grilled with charcoal and served to share in traditional, Vietnamese family style,” he remarked. “From day 1, local guests have filled Khói, drawn to the fresh, live offering, and affordable pricing for the entire family.”
Menu highlights include live garoupa, baked and fried oysters, live flower and steamed or wok-fried mud crabs, clams and razor clams, fresh and salt water prawns, BBQ pork ribs, imported beef Korean-style, Grilled Eggplant, corn fries, seafood rice, sun dried squid, and King Prawns.
“We are covering all the BBQ bases with Khói,” Chef continued. “My own recommendation is to start with the seafood tanks – these will feature a variety of fish, changing daily and market-fresh. Sold by weight and served from tank-to-table against a stunning backdrop with the lights of The Grand reflecting over its pools and the East Sea – it just can‟t be beat.”
“The refurbishment of Khói has seen a significant investment into our diners here, and caps-off an overhaul of our family amenities over the past 18 months,” Mr. Kelly continued. “In the past year or so, we have opened a mini-golf course, family karaoke, sports bar, video arcade, spacious parklands, an overhaul of several F&B venues, designer retail space and a 2D/3D cinema, which all told has seen a sevenfigure investment into the guest experience we offer here.”
This is in addition to housing Vietnam’s only international standard casino and one of the world’s top golf courses, The Bluffs. “We have made it a mission to be the top entertainment destination for guests in the nation, and day by day we are fulfilling that mission.”
The Khói overhaul is the latest in a wave of announcements emanating from the multi-award winning 2.2 kilometer beachfront site.
Last month, its developer, the Ho Tram Project Company, announced a $60 million investment into the Kahuna Ho Tram Strip condotel on the site immediately north of The Grand and followed that with the signing of a $63 million memorandum of understanding with PetroVietnam Low Pressure Gas Distribution JSC to provide electricity for the 164 hectare site with its own natural gas power plant.
Meanwhile, The Grand’s second tower, the 559-room five star hotel named The Beach Club is 13-floors out of the ground and estimated to top-out within three months. The second tower will include a waterpark and 2000 person amphitheater as well as extensive leisure amenities for guests.
All told, the Ho Tram Project Company’s parent – Asian Coast Development Limited – has US$1.1 billion in deployed and forward-deployed capital invested in its Vietnam project to date.

The 541-room Grand, which is owned and operated by the Ho Tram Project Company (a wholly owned subsidiary of Asian Coast Development Ltd), is the first phase of the Ho Tram Strip, Vietnam’s leading tourism and entertainment destination. In the midst of a flurry of announcements at present, the Strip’s second hotel – The Beach Club – is presently on level 15 and set to top out in around 60 days, ahead of a 2018 opening. The new resort will add 559 rooms to the site. The next phase of the project’s development, the condotel and villa development Kahuna, was announced a little over a month ago, and was followed promptly by yet another investment by the company into its own power station.
The Grand Ho Tram Strip, which has entertainment at its core, also houses Vietnam’s first international standard casino, which previously hosted the table gaming pilot program for international guests, and recently became the first applicant to host local Vietnamese players, following the March 2017 announcement that local gaming would become legal in future.
“It’s an incredible time to be a part of the Ho Tram Strip,” said Mr. Kelly. “We have over US$1.1 billion in deployed capital here, and every day brings a new wave of excitement. We cannot wait to showcase the Fountains of Ho Tram to our guests from around the world.”
