The 815-key Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City is slated to open in 2020 as the centrepiece of the Kenton Node riverside mixed-use development, currently under construction along the Rach Dia river bank.
Offering 288 hotel rooms and 527 serviced apartments, Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City will also feature a choice of restaurants and bars, an outdoor infinity swimming pool, a private spa, a fitness centre, and conference and banqueting facilities including a ballroom and several 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, riverside promenade and parks.
The signing of Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City is a “key part” of the Swiss chain’s ambitious expansion plans in the country, and will take its Vietnam portfolio to eight properties strong and over 3,000 rooms by 2020, said Andrew Langdon, chief development officer for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
At present, the company is established in 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.
