Okay so The Grand started out as a casino destination in Vietnam. But with it being the closest weekend getaway from Ho Chi Minh City, it’s really the ideal place to escape to for families. But aside from swimming in the pool, other water activities, and getting a tan on the beach, what else can you do?
And for the Vietnamese who actually cannot go to the casino and hates to get a tan, there should be other “family-oriented” activities to do.
This isn’t something new in The Grand but if you want to get a breather from taking care of your kids, you can leave them here for a fee. And maybe sneak in the casino for a bit if you’re a foreign-passport holder.
3D Movies are now shown in The Grand towards the end of the week, mostly movies for families. Popcorn included.
The Game Center is found near the lobby before you get to the ballroom area.
There’s a variety of games here but it’s not huge so it doesn’t mar the resort-feel of The Grand. I also spied another game room being prepared for adults with table tennis and foozeball.
From our room, we saw the Mini Golf so we were all excited to try this out. It opens from 2:30 till 10:30 PM.
You just have to call on ahead if you want to play. It’s free so it can get crowded during late afternoon.
I gave up on the 18th hole (last).
Coming soon is an outdoor playground.
Just beyond the playground, behind the pine trees is a basketball court.
Now you can mark your vacation with a souvenir photo which you can take in photobooths installed in The Grand (I saw 2).
You take a photo and just send your preferred shot via email.
Now there’s 7 more reasons to stay at The Grand with the whole family. 🙂
