Azerai Plans Early 2020 Opening of Azerai Ke Ga Bay in Vietnam

Viet Nam, Ke Ga Bay. January 16, 2020

Azerai Ke Ga Bay, a luxurious and secluded oceanfront retreat in southeastern Vietnam, is set to launch in early 2020 as the third property in Azerai Resorts' growing portfolio.

The property is scheduled to open April 1, 2020, with first bookings available online early in the New Year.

The 55-room resort, which will succeed Princess D'Annam Resort & Spa on the same site following a six-month renovation, is located 180km east of Saigon on a sweeping five-kilometer white sand beach on the South China Sea.

Framed to the north by Hon Ba Island, with its historic 1899-built colonial French lighthouse, and to the south by soaring sand dunes, the property cultivates one of the most naturally splendid oceanfront settings in the country.

The guest rooms, suites and villas at Azerai Ke Ga Bay evoke a contemporary aesthetic defined by elegant and simple design, with 21 units boasting either plunge pools or more spacious private pools. The resort's three villas are generously proportioned at 360 square metres and complemented by private pools.

Azerai Ke Ga Bay marks the brand's first beach resort, and follows Azerai La Residence, Hue, a historic city hotel overlooking the Perfume River in Vietnam's former imperial capital, and Azerai Can Tho, a tropical retreat set on a peaceful islet in the Mekong Delta.

Human Resources: Confronting a Labor Shortage

With the unemployment rate at its lowest level in decades (3.7%), what has always been a perennial problem for human resource professionals - labor shortage - is now reaching acute levels of concern. It is getting harder to find and recruit qualified applicants. Even finding candidates with the skills to succeed in entry-level positions has become an issue. In addition, employee turnover rates remain extremely high in the hotel industry. As a result of these problems, hotel HR managers are having to rethink their recruitment strategies in order to hire the right talent for the right job. First, hotels have been forced to raise their wages and offer other appealing perks, as a way to attract qualified candidates. Secondly, HR managers are reassessing their interviewing techniques, focusing less on the answers they receive to questions and more on observable behavior. Part of this process includes role-playing during the interview, so that the recruiter can gauge how a candidate works through specific problems and interacts with other team members. Additionally, some HR managers are also creating internal talent pools as a way to address labor shortages. Instead of utilizing department resources to find new hires with specific skills for needed positions, hotels are cultivating talent pools internally and preparing their employees to assume leadership roles whenever the time comes. They are also placing greater emphasis on a company culture that is more performance-based, as a way to curb employee turnover, increase employee satisfaction, and assure higher levels of customer service. Finally, recognizing the importance of employee retention as a way to lessen the impact of a tight labor market, some HR managers are instituting generous reward programs in order to retain their top performers. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these and other issues in their departments.
