Swiss-Belhotel International, the global hospitality management chain, has revealed plans for a major expansion of its hotel collection in Vietnam, one of the world’s most exciting and rapidly-emerging tourism markets.
At present, the group operates one hotel in Vietnam, Swiss-Belresort Tuyen Lam, an enchanting upscale retreat in the country’s Central Highlands, not far from Da Lat. Blending graceful local hospitality with European style, this 151-room resort is popular with leisure travellers, golfers and meeting planners alike.
But the company is now aiming to expand its Vietnamese portfolio to at least 10 hotels and resorts by 2021, including landmark openings in important business and leisure destinations all across the country.
Swiss-Belhotel International has already signed two new hotels in Vietnam. Firstly, Swiss-Belhotel Suites & Residences Ha Long Bay is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2019, overlooking the northeast Vietnam’s spectacular UNESCO World Heritage-listed seascape. This impressive new property will feature 350 apartment-style rooms for short and long stays, plus extensive facilities including a spa, fitness centre, swimming pools, multiple F&B outlets, a ballroom and meeting rooms.
Then in 2022, Swiss-Belresort Bai Dai Phu Quoc will open its doors on the pristine coast of Phu Quoc, southern Vietnam’s island jewel. Nestled directly on the sandy beach, this exquisite resort will comprise 218 rooms and villas, plus outdoor pools, a spa and a choice of dining options, including a seafood restaurant and beach club. It will also provide space for events and weddings.
