Dhawa Quy Nhon Vietnam is the second phase of Pegasus Education Tourism Development. The development’s first phase kicked off with the opening of Outward Bound Vietnam (“OBV”) in 2016. Pegasus Education Tourism Development spanning about 60 hectares with its own beach front is part of Pegasus Chairman Mr Ricky Tan’s vision to strategically combine outdoor adventure education facilities with ecotourism hospitality development.

Mr Tan said: “The signing of the royalty agreement for Dhawa Residences Beachfront Quy Nhon cements our long-term investments in Vietnam and marks a significant day for KinderWorld Group of Companies. This second phase of Dhawa Quy Nhon offers the first-of-its-kind hotel with villa residences, in a mixed education tourism development in the central coast of Vietnam. When Singaporean firms collaborate and synergise together, sustainable and purposeful international projects can be achieved.”

“We are delighted to advance our strategic alliance with Pegasus with the opening of the first Dhawa Residences within our dynamic multi-brand ecosystem. Located adjacent to the Dhawa Resort Quy Nhon, also scheduled to open in 2025, this additional experience strengthens Banyan Group’s expanding presence in high-growth travel destinations and exemplifies our commitment to excellence across a broad spectrum of offerings,” said Mr Ho Kwon Ping, Chairman of Banyan Group.

Inspired by paddy terraces, Dhawa Quy Nhon Vietnam spans 10.5 hectares on tiered platforms descending to the seafront. Rooted in a design philosophy embracing panoramic sea views and deep sensitivity to the natural topography, Banyan Group’s Dhawa brand blends seamlessly, emphasizing smart design, distinctive aesthetics, and fresh thinking. The resort caters to discerning travelers, providing unique experiences in stylish, one-of-a-kind settings, encapsulating the essence of choice, comfort, and discovery.

In 2023, Dhawa Resort Quy Nhon was awarded with the Best Resort Interior Design at the Asia Architecture & Design Awards. The resort design is praised for featuring distinct zones inspired by different aspects of Quy Nho’s cultural treasures, celebrating local culture which seamlessly blends with the natural surroundings, emphasizing the region’s rustic charms.

The Binh Dinh province in central Vietnam is gaining popularity as a destination for tourism and hospitality, with a unique and ideal combination of historical structures, untouched beaches and lush greenery. With approved masterplan for an international airport in Binh Dinh, international tourists will also be drawn to Dhawa Quy Nhon Vietnam‘s tranquil yet contemporary setting for an immersive experience.
