VENUE

The entire resort opened its doors as the first top-class casino resort in Vietnam in 2013 with 541 rooms. The Grand Ho Tram Strip in Vietnam teamed up with the World Gaming Group (WGG) to open a world-class poker room. Surrounded by beaches, an amazing golf course, and with a world-class poker venue in the making, Ho Tram looks set to bring in tourists and poker players from across the world as their popularity spreads.

With a fresh perspective from new management comes a whole new approach, and that can be seen in the way that Ho Tram markets itself as a poker players dream location, with the inclusion of golf. The golf course – The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip – which is situated on its doorstep was designed by former world number 1 golfer, Greg Norman. This works alongside a beautiful ocean view, with a swimming pool to create a holiday resort feel, rather than just a simple casino.
