VIETNAM’S inventory of four- and five-star rooms is poised to balloon over the next three years.
Last December, Six Senses Resorts & Spas opened its 50-villa Six Senses Resort on Con Dao Island, which is served by daily flights from Ho Chi Minh City.
The InterContinental Hotels Group has signed up two seaside resorts. The 250-room Holiday Inn Resort Cam Ranh will open in 2013, followed by the 250-room Holiday Inn Resort Phu Quoc Duong Dong Beach in 2014.
Meanwhile, Hilton will unveil its second property in the country, 226-room Hilton DaNang Hotel, in 2013.
Vietnam has an estimated 12,400 five-star and 12,650 four-star rooms. Of these, 2,800 five-star and 1,400 four-star rooms are in Hanoi; 4,300 five-star and 1,400 four-star rooms, in Ho Chi Minh City.
