IHG Hotels and Resorts has signed a three-hotel deal in Vietnam, with its Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express brands set to open in a mixed-use development.
The agreement with ConBap Ecologoical Tourist Co. Ltd. will see the three hotels open in the Hoian d’Or development in Hoi An in 2024. The development is located on the riverfront and is a 35-minute drive from Da Nang International Airport and a ten-minute walk from the ancient town – a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The hotels will include 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. Facilities across the three properties will include six restaurants and bars including a riverfront club, outdoor pools, gyms, spas and a business corner.
The development will also be home to the largest meeting space in Hoi An, at over 2,000 sqm.
Serena Lim, VP development South East Asia and Korea, IHG said:
“This landmark deal demonstrates the strength of IHG’s brands in Vietnam, and the value of having great local knowledge while leveraging on the power of IHG’s global systems, enterprise and programmes. It’s wonderful to partner with Con Bap on such an exciting and forward-looking development and I’d like to thank them for their partnership with this project.
“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. Hotel Indigo will bring to life the pulse and rhythm of the city, telling the story of its neighbourhood in everything from its intriguing design to the local flavours on its menus.
“Crowne Plaza will add an extra dimension to the development as we operate the largest meetings and events venue in Hoi An on top of offering guests its trademark work/life blend experience, ideal for the modern traveller. And in Holiday Inn Express, we’re achieving another first, by introducing the brand to Vietnam, confident in its ability to provide the ideal place for visitors to rest and recharge, and the perfect launchpad to enjoy everything Hoi An’s mesmerising ancient town has to offer.”
This deal makes IHG Hotels and Resorts one of the largest international hotel operators in the Danang-Hoi An area. The group has 15 hotels open in Vietnam, with plans to double its estate by 2027 through a pipeline of 20 properties with over 6,000 rooms.
The group will also introduce its Voco Hotels brand to the country, with the opening of Voco Ma Belle Danang, following its debut of Regent Hotels and Resorts brand with the opening of Regent Phu Quoc.
Additionally at the start of the year the group signed an agreement with Sun Hospitality Group to add four properties comprising a total of 2,709 rooms in Vietnam.
