Island Destination Planning

Key Service: Destination Planning
Location: Cat Ba Island, Vietnam
Product: Destination Development Plan
Office: Horwath HTL Singapore

Scope of Work
Horwath HTL was commissioned to assess tourism potential and the overall feasibility of developing Cat Ba Island into a quality, resort-styled, sustainable destination. We provide a detailed master-plan strategy for the phased development with multiple zones of hotel accommodations, tourism components, retail areas and residences. The developer aims at unlocking tourism growth potential of the Ha Long Bay – Cat Ba archipelago, an extended word heritage area known for unique limestone karst topography.

Description of the Outdoor Project
The main objective is to make the Cat Ba Island regionally competitive, and to have a better outcome than what was previously experienced in the neighboring Ha Long Bay. Some of the proposed recommendations are related to natural encounters and adventure activities as points of differentiations, such as glamping, eco lodges, hiking, biking, camping, cave exploration and mangrove tours. Aside from common commercial developments, the long-term plan involves the conservation and showcasing of the island’s natural elements through animal research/rescue centre, nature education centre and wetland parks.
