An epoxy terrazzo flooring with a sparkling finish was installed at the stunningly beautiful Belle Maison Parosand Danang Hotel in Vietnam’s City of Light, Danang. Located on Pham Van Dong Beach, close to East Sea Park on the East Coast of Vietnam, the Belle Maison Parosand Danang Hotel takes design inspiration from the ever-changing nuances of light and arts in the city, which hosts the famous Danang International Fireworks Competition and Danang Light Festival, and is popular with tourists from all over the world.

The hotel, which opened its doors in 2017, offers guests quality accommodation coupled with generous amenities and exceptional service.

Flowcrete supplied close to 700 square metres of their epoxy terrazzo flooring system, Mondéco Crystal for installation in the hotel’s lobby lounge and à la carte seafood restaurant, Big Plate. Installed at 6mm thickness, Mondéco Crystal contains a blend of clear crystal and mirrored glass aggregates within the epoxy resin mix. Once cured, the material is diamond ground to reveal a smooth, level, hardwearing and sparkling finish underfoot.

The entire floor installation was completed within a challenging three-month window in time for the hotel’s official opening. The application process was executed amidst the continual construction and maintenance work going on around the floor area.

Green building practices were an important aspect of this development, as the architects designed and planned the project to meet LEED certification. Flowcrete’s Mondéco Crystal epoxy terrazzo flooring system addressed this requirement adding to the site’s green credentials, with most of the decorative aggregates being reclaimed from waste streams to minimise the amount of material taken to landfill. Additionally, the durable floor has a long lifespan, which avoids the environmental impact of a flooring refurbishment.

Flowcrete also supplied 150 square metres of their exterior resin bound gravel system, Rustik UV for the hotel’s sky deck to provide a slip-resistant finish around the hotel’s outdoor pool. Containing colourful natural stones in a clear aliphatic, UV stable polyurethane resin, Rustik UV delivers a highly durable wearing surface with enhanced UV resistance that will prevent deterioration of the floor when exposed to prolonged periods of intense sunlight in the outdoor pool area.

In addition to the decorative flooring systems installed in public areas, Flowcrete supplied about 80 square metres of their antimicrobial polyurethane floor finish, Flowfresh for the hotel’s catering kitchen. The material contains a silver ion based antimicrobial additive that inhibits the growth of bacteria between wash cycles, providing a hygienic solution for catering kitchens. HACCP International certifies the material as food-safe for use in both wet and dry food processing environments operating a food safety management plan based on HACCP principles.
