Halong Bay, a Unesco-listed World Heritage area, receives its first internationally branded hotel property when the Novotel Halong Bay opens on October 1.
Located on a beachfront, the 214-room property is within easy walking distance of local markets and the pier where tourists board cruises to see scores of towering limestone rocks (more like small mountains) sometimes rising over 500m into the sky.
Facilities include an outdoor swimming pool overlooking the Bay, a spa with an extensive menu of treatments, fitness centre, all-day dining restaurant, executive lounge on the 12th floor and a lobby lounge which provides the perfect place to enjoy tropical cocktails and a spectacular sunset.
In addition, conference facilities capable of hosting up to 300 delegates, supported by the latest in audio-visual equipment are available.
Go to www.notovel.com/asia for more information and special launch offers good until December 31.
