Peter Tichy Appointed Opening General Manager of New Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh Bay

Belgium, Brussels. November 18, 2019

Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh Bay, the brand new beach resort nestled on Vietnam's stunning south-east coast, has announced the appointment of Peter Tichy as its opening General Manager.

A highly-skilled hospitality professional with more than 30 years of industry experience, Peter has enjoyed an impressive career that included spells managing hotels in Russia, Sweden, Germany, Ukraine, Egypt, Nigeria and now, Vietnam. He also has a proven track record of hotel openings, having successfully launched multiple new properties worldwide.

Peter is no stranger to Radisson Blu, having previously managed four of the upper-upscale brand's hotels, as well as properties under its sister brand, Park Inn by Radisson. This makes him the perfect person to introduce Radisson Hotel Group's exceptional international standards to Cam Ranh Bay, one of Asia's most attractive new resort destinations.

Nestled on Long Beach, a spectacular 18km-long stretch of sand in Vietnam's Khanh Hoa province, Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh Bay is a world-class property with 292 contemporary rooms and suites, 36 pool villas, five F&B outlets including the iconic Blu Lobster, a destination spa and conference facilities for up to 550 delegates, all supported by the "Yes I can!" attitude of the staff.

Approximately 25 minutes' drive south of Nha Trang, the popular resort town, Cam Ranh Bay is becoming one of Vietnam's most desirable upmarket resort areas. It is just seven minutes' drive from Cam Ranh International Airport, which offers direct connections to and from major Asian cities including Bangkok, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai and Seoul. The recent opening of a new international Terminal 2 has accelerated the airport's growth, with almost five million passengers now arriving and departing each year.

"I am delighted to have been given this opportunity. Vietnam is one of the world's most exciting emerging destinations, and beautiful beach resorts like Cam Ranh Bay are the driving force behind this growth. We have a pristine location, with pure white sands and turquoise seas, but we are also very well connected and easily accessible. I look forward to working with the entire team here as we prepare to welcoming our discerning guests to Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh Bay," said Peter Tichy.

Vietnam's hospitality industry is booming; this captivating country welcomed a total of 12.9 million international visitors in the first nine months of 2019, 11 percent higher than the same period last year. This puts Vietnam's tourism industry on track towards achieving another record year.

Capitalising on the opportunities Vietnam offers, Radisson Hotel Group is currently undertaking a significant expansion strategy in the country. This is being driven by the upper-upscale Radisson Blu brand, which is highly suited to the country's upmarket resort areas. Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh Bay will become the group's second seafront resort in the country, following Radisson Blu Resort Phu Quoc. A third project, Radisson Blu Resort Hoi An, is also in the pipeline.

Radisson Blu is one of the fastest growing upper-upscale international hotel brands, with 400 hotels and resorts currently in operation and under development globally, including 74 in APAC.

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
