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.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
