Expanding its hospitality portfolio in Vietnam, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed for a landmark property in Ho Chi Minh City.
Slated for a 2020 opening, Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City will house 815 rooms, comprising 288 hotel rooms and 527 serviced apartments, as well as a comprehensive collection of upscale business and leisure facilities.
The impressive project will form the centrepiece of Kenton Node Hotel Complex, a major new mixed-use development currently rising on the Rach Dia river bank, Nguyen Huu Tho Street, Saigon South, located just 10 minutes from downtown Ho Chi Minh City.
The property will feature numerous dining outlets, an outdoor infinity swimming pool, a private spa, a fitness centre and conference and banqueting venues, including a ballroom and meeting rooms.
The surrounding 84,000m2 Kenton Node complex will boast high-end retail malls, restaurants, a multiplex cinema and other leisure facilities, plus office space, residential units, a marina, a riverside promenade and parks. The development will become a major new landmark for Ho Chi Minh City, attracting locals and international visitors alike.
The signing of Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City forms a key part of a major phase of expansion for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts in Vietnam. At present, the company is established in the capital city Hanoi, but the next few years will see the launch of a series of new hotels and resorts in key destinations across the country, including Cam Ranh, Phu Quoc, Quy Nhon, Quang Binh, Danang and Lang Co.
“Tourism in Vietnam is riding the crest of a wave, with proactive government policies and positive investments leading to record-breaking visitor arrivals and a buoyant economy with strong GDP growth,” chief development officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Andrew Langdon commented. “With its versatile collection of hotel rooms, residences and world-class facilities, Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City will cater to a wide variety of customer profiles in both the short- and long-stay segments. This impressive flagship project will take our Vietnam portfolio to eight properties, and we look forward to further expansion across the country in the coming years.”
