Flamingo Cat Ba Resort

Flamingo Cat Ba Resort


Flamingo Cat Ba Resort is a beach paradise, ideally located in Cat Ba Town with views of the sea, mountains, and Lan Ha Bay. Guests will enjoy the beaches of Cat Co on the resort’s property and the well-designed living spaces within the resort.

The resort features a distinctive design with the exterior covered in more than 10,000 trees. From a distance, the building resembles a tropical jungle and connects the resort to its surrounding environment.

The hotel was also designed to utilize resource-efficient design features and technologies to reduce its environmental impact. Solar hot water collectors, LED lighting, and a water-cooled chiller will contribute to the building’s energy savings, while low-flow plumbing fixtures and auto shut-off faucets will contribute to the building’s water savings.

Flamingo Cat Ba Resort is aligned with developer Flamingo Holding’s commitment to the sustainable development of its projects. By covering the resort with trees, Flamingo Holding helped preserve the beauty of Cat Co beaches, while bringing economic benefits to the community. Flamingo Holding has also EDGE certified its Forest in the Sky project in Hanoi.

Flamingo Cat Ba Resort has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from SGS Vietnam.

Hotel Le Parc, Beyond the Stars

Hotel Le Parc, Beyond the Stars


The Le Parc project is a new building complex in Quito, ideally located on República del Salvador street in the financial center of the city. The project’s two 18-story towers will incorporate the existing Hotel Le Parc and will include space for homes and offices. A vertical mixed organizational system and independent fixed points of entry will differentiate the spaces.

The redesigned Hotel Le Parc will serve as example of resource efficiency for the hospitality industry in Ecuador. Guests of the hotel, whether in Quito for business or leisure, will enjoy the property’s numerous amenities.

The complex will utilize resource-efficient design features and technologies to reduce its environmental impact and lower its carbon footprint. The hotel and accompanying spaces will use a multitude of technologies such as high-performance glass, LED lighting, solar photovoltaics, water-efficient plumbing fixtures, and a rainwater harvesting system to save energy and water.

The promoter for the project, Commonplace/Gabriela Sommerfeld, was determined to develop the complex and restore Hotel Le Parc in an environmentally friendly way. Christian Wiese Architects, Adriana Hoyos Design Studio, and Arch-Bio Company were enlisted to include green features in the design and construction of the property.

Hotel Le Parc has received an EDGE Advanced certificate from GBCI.
