The Group will continue to augment its regionwide portfolio of hotels and resorts in 2023, while initiating attractive promotions and leveraging the strength of Best Western Rewards, its global loyalty programme, to attract new and returning guests.
The expansion will focus on a series of key strategic markets, including Thailand and Vietnam, while also introducing more of its 19 diverse brands to the region.
Key openings in Vietnam this year will include Executive Residency by Best Western Cen Riverside Hanoi, which will mark the debut of its extended-stay Executive Residency by Best Western brand in Southeast Asia, as well as Venezia Binh Chau, BW Premier Collection by Best Western, a spectacular new development on the country’s southeast coast.

Multiple new openings are also planned in Indonesia, and exciting new concepts will be introduced to the Philippines, including Cebu’s first SureStay Plus hotel.
