By Minh Tuan
HCMC – The world’s leading operator of hospitability facilities AccorHotels targets to add 19 more hotels in Vietnam in the next two years, the group said at a press conference here on October 26.
AccorHotels currently has 28 properties across the country, 12 of which are in the luxury and upscale segment. The group plans to add 19 more hotels to its portfolio within the next two years following the acquisition of Fairmont, Raffles, Swissôtel, and most recently, Mövenpick.
“In the past few decades, Vietnam has become one of the top travel destinations in the world, attracting travelers to its lush mountains, bustling cities and golden sand beaches. Despite rapid modernization in Vietnam’s urban centers of Hanoi and HCMC, the numerous ancient landmarks and colonial structures are rich in indigenous architecture and reflect centuries-old mercantile influences,” Patrick Basset, chief operating officer, Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives, said at a press conference in HCMC on October 26.
AccorHotels is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the opening of Sofitel Saigon Plaza, its first luxury brand in HCMC.
“Over the last 20 years, Sofitel Saigon Plaza has established itself as an iconic hotel that blends the French art of living with the modern colonial structures and ancient citadels of the city. A luxurious urban retreat, the hotel is located in a quiet enclave just steps from the excitement of the metropolis,” said Olivier Revy, general manager of the Sofitel Saigon Plaza.
Besides Sofitel, AccorHotels is operating some other luxury brands in Vietnam like Pullman, MGallery, Novotel, and Ibis.
