Accor has deepened its partnership with owner Novaland with three new hotel signings in Vietnam, with plans for seven more in the future.
The latest additions are the 248-room Mövenpick Phan Thiet and 250-room Novotel Phan Thiet within NovaWorld Phan Thiet, as well as Mövenpick Ho Tram, a 209-room hotel at Wonderland – NovaWorld Ho Tram, a complex under development by Novaland.
All three hotels will feature a range of recreational, wellness and F&B facilities, while Novotel Phan Thiet and Mövenpick Ho Tram will offer venues for meetings and events.
Currently under development, the NovaWorld Phan Thiet complex is a 1,000-hectare project on the Tien Thanh coastline. It will comprise a theme park, a waterpark, a 16-hectare ocean park with a marina, 36-hole golf course, a 7,000-seat events stadium, a 3,500-seat tennis court, a marathon track, a mall, food courts, a hospitality school, an international village, a senior centre and over 20 resorts managed by international operators such as Accor.
The NovaWorld Ho Tram complex spans 1,000 hectares along a 30km coastline from Loc An to Binh Chau.
The latest signings are part of Accor’s strategic development plan to expand into emerging destinations, introducing world-class hospitality brands for both domestic and international travellers. Accor will manage a further seven properties in the newly developed complexes by Novaland in Binh Thuan, Ba Ria Vung Tau and Ho Chi Minh City.
“Following on from the launch of Mercure Vung Tau and ibis Styles Vung Tau last year, we are extremely pleased to further develop our partnership with Novaland and look forward to leveraging our global distribution capabilities and extensive experience to successfully introduce the Novotel and Mövenpick brands to NovaWorld Phan Thiet and NovaWorld Ho Tram. With their untouched natural beauty, both destinations are very promising and have the potential to be the most visited coastal areas in the country,” said Garth Simmons, CEO, Accor Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea.
The hotel company now has 35 hotels in Vietnam and a strong pipeline of committed projects across the country.
