Hcmc, Viet Nam (PressExposure) October 26, 2011 -- Trendsetter Fusion Resorts, known for its groundbreaking Fusion Maia's all inclusive spa, Fusion Alya's all inclusive dining and Fusion Zana's fashion resorts, is currently working on a new apartment concept for the Vietnamese market. Not only does the design of Fusion Suites Da Nang Beach fuel curiosity, but service wise the creative minds behind the Fusion brand have come up with a special management concept for the building ensuring the return of investment of the buyers....to be revealed later this year.
According to Marco van Aggele, CEO and Co-founder of Serenity Holding, "The addition of an apartment concept to our collection of innovative resorts will breathe fresh air into the quite standard way of looking at apartments for sales in Vietnam. Thus far, most apartment developments across Vietnam are marketed on the price per square meter, making it very hard to distinguish yourself from other developments other than the price. With our strong background in hospitality, we think that our Fusion Suites collection will truly capture the essence of apartment ownership. Whether our buyers use it as a pied-a-terre, live there permanently or put it in our Fusion rental pool; our highly efficiently planned modular Fusion Suites are the answer for the currently distressed apartment market of Vietnam.
Fellow Dutchman and Design Director of Serenity Holding, Mr. Rolf van Valkenburg explains: "Constantly talking with customers and investors has helped us gain deep insights into their underlying needs which surely a customer survey cannot find out. And we know that both investors and customers are never demanding less. Creating new products and concepts to us is a must and a key ingredient for our developments' survival. The "double-skin" design theme of Fusion Suites Da Nang Beach is somewhat strange for Vietnam, but it is a very effective and simple way to keep a building evolving throughout time, while contributing to a more eco-friendly operation. We truly hope the concept will be embraced by those Vietnamese investors and guests in search for a boutique lifestyle."
Marco van Aggele continues: "Supported by our in-house team of dynamic managers and designers, Serenity always aims to look a few years ahead of the curve by conceptualizing innovative hospitality and real estate concepts in the very preliminary stage of a project. The new proposed Fusion Suites concept will put property investment in a different light. No longer will people have to invest in an "empty" apartment with no reasonable expectation of generating rental income until they resell the apartment. The fully furnished units of Fusion Suites can be put in and out of the rental pool depending on our client's personal desires. This flexibility will be the key to the success of our Suite concept".
Even though still in its concept phase, Fusion Suites Danang Beach has already received many pre-registered buyers in search for a smart way of investing in property. The attractive price point of a fully furnished, and ready to rent out unit (starting at 1.3 bln VND, which is around 65.000 USD) is only one of the reasons of this great demand. The unique look of the building give the buyers a feeling that the future value of their investment in safeguarded in the tough market of Da Nang. Other Fusion Suites development in main cities, such as Hanoi, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City are currently under discussion.
