Meliá Hotels International has recently just signed off on several new hotels across Vietnam, with two new properties in Ho Chi Minh’s financial sector and in Halong tourist bay, both of which will be the group’s first property in those areas of Vietnam.
The group already owns several hotels in the Vietnam area, including boutique hotel in Saigon, with these new hotels increasing the group’s number of properties in the country up to a total of 10. The hotels are distributed across two brands; Meliá Hotels & Resorts, and Innide by Meliá. These new properties will operate alongside the Sol Beach House Phu Quoc, Meliá Danang and the Meliá Hanoi. The new properties to open in Ho Chi Minh’s financial center, District 1, will be located in close proximity to the Tan Son Nhat International Airport.
One of the new properties will be the Meliá Saigon Central, which is the current Amena Residence and Suites boutique hotel in Saigon which the group will rebrand under the Meliá brand starting from the March of 2018. The hotel will be fully renovated sometime in 2019, should the schedule hold. This new property will have the capacity of 75 rooms following the first development phase, with a capacity of 159 rooms when the project is officially completed.
The new Meliá Saigon Central will be located in the middle of Saigon’s tourist destinations, not far from the Saigon Opera House, and the Basilica, among others.
Two other properties other the Innside name will be opened, one in 2018 and the other in 2020, with both located in the heart of Saigon’s economic zone. The 72-room Amena Suite Hotel Ton That Dam will be rebranded into the Innside Saigon Central, and will open in 2018. To be located near it is the 115-room Innside Saigon Mariamann, currently under renovation as the Lavander Boutique hotel.
The last opening will be the Innside Halong, the group’s first property in the Halong Bay UNESCO World Heritage Site. This 251-room hotel will open in 2019, if schedule holds, located near the area’s newer tourist attractions, such as the Dragon Park.
