InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is set to debut the InterContinental brand in Halong Bay, Vietnam, with the signing of two new properties.
InterContinental Halong Bay Resort and InterContinental Residences Halong Bay, developed in partnership with Ha Long Investment and Development, a member of BIM Group, marks IHG’s expansion into the Quang Ninh province, Vietnam.
Slated to open in 2023, InterContinental Halong Bay Resort will feature 175 guestrooms, while InterContinental Residences Halong Bay will be made up of 60 apartments, ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, and 41 villas.
Guests and residents alike will be able to enjoy five restaurant and bar outlets, four pools, a gym, kids’ club and spa. Event hosts can avail the property’s six meeting rooms, with the largest room able to accommodate up to 500 people.
Guests can own an apartment or villa at InterContinental Residences Halong Bay, allowing their residence to benefit from inclusion in a rental programme, with apartments and villas available for third-party guests to book through IHG’s global channels.
On top of immersive resort facilities, the property also boasts its very own private beach. Leisure guests will enjoy convenient access to attractions including theme parks, water parks, beaches, integrated resorts, golf courses, popular shopping areas and night markets. Business travellers can benefit from the property’s proximity to MICE and convention centres, deep sea port operations, and upcoming commercial clusters.
IHG currently has 14 hotels in Vietnam across four brands, with plans to open 15 hotels in the next three to five years.
