IHG Hotels & Resorts has landed a three-hotel portfolio deal in Hoi An with ConBap Ecological Tourist – making the company one of the largest international hotel operators in the Danang-Hoi An area.
The agreement will see the expansion of boutique lifestyle brand Hotel Indigo and premium hotel brand Crowne Plaza, as well as introduce IHG’s fastest-growing brand Holiday Inn Express to Vietnam.
From 2024, the 175-room Hotel Indigo Hoi An Ancient Town, 300-room Crowne Plaza Hoi An Ancient Town and 193-room Holiday Inn Express Hoi An Ancient Town will join Hoi An’s hotel inventory. All will be located within a new mixed-used development, Hoian d’Or.
Crowne Plaza Hoi An Ancient Town will come with a 2,000m² convention centre.
Facilities across the three hotels will include six restaurants and bars including a unique riverfront club, outdoor pools, gyms, spas and a business corner. Located on the riverfront, the development is a 35-minute drive from Da Nang International Airport and offers easy access to Hoi An’s many popular attractions.
The project aligns with the Quang Nam Provincial Government’s plan to rejuvenate and expand Hoi An to ensure it maintains its position as one of Vietnam’s most visited destinations.
Serena Lim, vice president, development, South-east Asia & Korea, IHG, said: “Having a broad mix of our brands, each providing a different stay experience, is the perfect approach in Hoi An as we know people head there for many reasons.”
Thanh Vu, CEO of ConBap Ecological Tourist, said: “At Con Bap, we’re passionate about creating sustainable developments that open up the stunning cultural and natural wonders of Vietnam for many more people to discover and enjoy. Hoian d’Or is a dream project that will create a destination within a destination and elevate the Hoi An visitor experience through a range of cultural, commercial, entertainment and hotel features including a retail village, museum, convention centre and botanic gardens.”
