The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip
The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip was designed to capture the essence of links-style golf. Set on the coastline — as all great links courses are — The Bluffs is routed over and around towering sand dunes, which have been shaped by the elements. The wind plays a major role in the experience here; it’s always strong, and its prevailing direction differs depending on the time of year.
Said the course’s designer, Greg Norman: “The experience of playing true links golf among the dunes of southern Vietnam and having dramatic ocean views throughout your round makes playing The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip one of the most unique golf experiences in the world.”

Minh Dam Tour
With a focus on providing a personalized blend of excitement and relaxation, The Grand Ho Tram Strip now offers the great Minh Dam Tour for guests to experience some of the fantastic attractions that surround the resort.
The complimentary Minh Dam Tour is a 3-hour program (travel time included) that takes travelers into the historic Minh Dam Mountain. Known for its lush forests and numerous rock caves, Minh Dam Mountain is awash in history as a revolutionary base during Vietnam’s marathon struggle for its independence.
Staying with this revolutionary theme, guests will next hike the 323 meters trail to the top of Da Che (Split Rock) Mountain, which once also was a troop station, and where the panoramic views of Ho Tram continue to expand on the final ascent to the region’s rooftop.
Changing themes here, guests will then visit the spiritual heart of Ho Tram, taking in the Hon Mot (Linh Quang) Pagoda, where idyllic settings provide ideal backdrops for beautifully ornate temples, statues and terraced bonsai gardens.
The final stop on The Grand circuit sees a visit to Trúc Lâm Chân Nguyên Monastery, known colloquially as the Monkey Pagoda. Its cherry blossom forest gives way to a serene meditation space that blends seamlessly into its natural surrounds – a forest home to the countless monkeys from which it derives its nickname. The friendly primates are an attraction in their own right, and travelers often bring bananas and other fruits for them.
To participate in this complimentary historical tour, The Grand guests simply have tour booking made prior their check-in at the resort.
