Iconic basket boat-shaped convention center opens in Vietnam

Must read

Axi Plaza celebrated its grand opening today at its spectacular beachfront location, overlooking Long Beach on Vietnam’s scenic Cam Ranh peninsula. Its host of remarkable facilities include a vast state-of-the-art conference hall, a 360-degree rooftop venue, a stunning outdoor beachfront event space, and about 10,000 sq.m dedicated to shopping and dining outlets.

The largest multipurpose convention center in the region, Axi Plaza marks The Anam Group’s third major development, following the launch of luxurious resorts The Anam Cam Ranh and The Anam Mui Ne in 2017 and 2023, respectively.

Following The Anam Cam Ranh with 213 rooms, suites and villas, Axi Plaza is breaking new ground in Cam Ranh, which was once renowned as Southeast Asia’s greatest deepwater harbor and is now rising as an upscale alternative to nearby Nha Trang.

Billed as affording “meetings above the beach”, the 1,197-sq.m conference hall and ballroom area on Axi Plaza’s third floor accommodates up to 1,000 people. Dominated by a high ceiling with timber beams fashioned in a fan formation, the hall features a cutting edge 75-sq.m LED screen and panoramic vistas encompassing swimming pools, a manicured lawn and the ocean.

Covering 1,077 sq.m, the 360-degree rooftop area on the fifth floor has been designed for receptions and company events and offers sweeping views of Long Beach’s white sands and turquoise waters. A dramatic headland named “Song Lo”, meaning the ‘wave next to the mountain’ in Vietnamese, rises up to the immediate north and west.

Situated behind Axi Plaza’s vast second floor entrance and reception area, the 200-sq.m Axi Plaza Lounge overlooks the swimming pools and serves Vietnamese fare.

In addition to MICE and indoor and outdoor dining areas on the fourth floor, Axi Plaza’s first floor is dedicated to 46 shops ranging in size from 14 sq.m to 239 sq.m.

“Axi Plaza is a game changer for Cam Ranh and Vietnam’s entire coastline – there’s nothing like it for business and leisure travellers alike,” said The Anam Group’s founder Pham Van Hien at the grand opening celebrations.

Together, Axi Plaza and The Anam Cam Ranh will offer a complete package of services and amenities for bleisure guests in one location.
