With 16 years of operation, TMS Group is oriented to be a multi-discipline economic corporation, including real estate, education-training, tourism, retail, energy, infrastructure development, health care, and hi-tech agriculture.

TMS Group has tied up with prestigious local and foreign partners such as Hoa Binh Construction Group and Vietnam’s leading banks such as Vietinbank and Military Bank. The group also partnered with world-renowned architecture firms like CallisonRTKL, Ten design, Aedas, Humphreys & Partners, and B+H.

TMS Group is focusing on real estate as a key activity with rapid and sustainable growth. With a view to become a prestigious property developer, TMS Group has implemented many large-scale projects in the residential and hospitality segments such as TMS Hotel Danang Beach at My Khe Beach, one of the 10 most attractive beaches on the planet. The project was put into operation in Danang in October 2018.

Meanwhile, TMS Hotel Quy Nhon Beach is a new five-star hotel with a scale of 42 floors, becoming the tallest tower in Quy Nhon city, Binh Dinh Province. The topping-out ceremony for the project was held at the beginning of June 2019. TMS Hotel Quy Nhon Beach is slated to be put into operation in the second quarter of 2020. The hotel will provide a luxury living experience for tourists to Quy Nhon.

TMS Grand City Phuc Yen is designed as a Japanese-style urban area with modern amenities and services, offering convenience, green space, and serenity for its residents. The first phase of the project was put into operation in June 2019, creating a self-contained complex meeting Japanese standards right in Vinh Phuc. The project has become a centre for entertainment, recreational and cultural exchange activities for citizens in the locality and neighbouring regions.

In the coming time, TMS Group will implement a wide range of high-end real estate projects meeting international standards. The projects will be located in the beachfront or downtown areas of fast-growing cities like Binh Thuan, Quang Binh, Vinh Phuc, Bac Giang, and Thai Nguyen.
