As part of a deal with Vinpearl, a Vietnam-based hospitality company, Marriott is expanding its presence in Vietnam with an additional eight hotels, the hotel giant announced this week.
The eight hotels will start rolling out later this year—six of the eight are conversions and are expected to be part of Marriott by the end of 2022, while the other two are new builds that are expected to debut sometime in 2025.
The six conversions include:
- Vinpearl Landmark 81, Marriott’s first Autograph Collection hotel in Vietnam. This new property will sit high up in a 1500-plus sq. ft. tower on the banks of the Saigon River, with 223 total rooms and suites.
- Danang Marriott Resort & Spa on Non Nuoc Beach, close to downtown Danang. The plan is for this property to feature 200 rooms and suites, 39 villas, five different food and beverage outlets, a kids club, a dive center, and more.
- Sheraton Long Beach Phy Quoc Resort, located on Vietnam’s largest island. This resort is expected to include 500 rooms and villas, three food and beverage outlets, three pools, a spa, a kids club, and more.
- Sheraton Hai Phong, located in Vietnam’s largest port city. It will debut with 362 rooms with a heavy emphasis on meetings space with a ballroom and four function spaces.
- Sheraton Can Tho located in the Mekong Delta city, a 262-room hotel on the banks of the Can Tho River.
- Four Points by Sheraton Lang Son, a 21-story hotel in the northern city of Lang Song, offering 127 rooms and suites
The other two, which are both new builds, are the Sheraton Vinh and Four Points by Sheraton Ha Giang, two hotels that Marriott says will attract not only domestic but also international travelers.
Currently, Marriott is operation 10 hotels and resorts in Vietnam. Today’s announcement, combined with a previously-announced deal to add 30 hotels in the country, brings Marriott’s Vietnam plans to close to 40 hotels.
