Mövenpick Hotels sign first hotel in Danang

In a bid to strengthen their presence in Vietnam, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts signed its sixth property in the country.

The new property will be located in the coastal city of Danang and is in partnership with Vicoland Group Joint Stock Company. The 150-room hotel and 354 branded residences is scheduled to open in Q3 of 2019.

“The property is specifically being designed to serve Vietnam’s rapidly developing tourism and business and MICE sector while also meeting emerging demand for extended and long-term stays,” explains Andrew Langdon, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts chief development officer and senior vice president Asia.

The hotel will offer a range of contemporary amenities such as riverside rooms, including a signature rooftop lounge and restaurant, lobby lounge and speciality restaurant. Leisure facilities include a swimming pool, fitness centre, spa and kids’ club, as well as a ballroom and meeting rooms.

“For Mövenpick, this development is all about creating an urban lifestyle venue that appeals to leisure and business guests. Danang is experiencing a development and tourism boom, as is Vietnam. The growth within the country’s economy and a general increase in disposable income are driving domestic tourism and the property market simultaneously” Langdon continued.

Danang welcomed 4.6 million international visitors in 2015, an increase of over 20% on 2014 and is home to famous China Beach. It is also close to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites and in November 2017 will hold the APEC summit.

In Vietnam, Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi is already open and operating, while five other properties are in development phase. They are Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Danang Vietnam (2019), along with Mövenpick Resort Cam Ranh Bay (2018), Mövenpick Hotel Quảng Bình (2019), Mövenpick Resort Phu Quoc (2019) and Mövenpick Hotel Quy Nhon (2020). The hospitality company is actively pursuing development potential within Asia and is currently working towards an on-target goal of 30 operating properties in Asia and 125 globally by 2020.
