Marriott International to introduce its upscale Marriott brand to Vietnam

Marriott International has signed an agreement with Sao Sang Nha Trang Co. Ltd. that will result in the opening of its first deluxe Marriott Hotels & Resorts-branded hotel in Vietnam in 2013 and its fifth property in the country. Construction is expected to start by year-end.

The 250-room Nha Trang Marriott Hotel will be located on Tran Phu Boulevard in the heart of Nha Trang City facing Nha Trang Bay, widely considered one of the most beautiful bays in the world. Known for its pristine beaches and as the scuba diving center of Vietnam, Nha Trang is one of the most popular holiday destinations among residents and visitors to Vietnam. Nha Trang is a vibrant beach town that offers a multitude of things to do and see – from water sports, boating and fishing, to outdoor activities like cycling through the countryside and trekking in the mountains, to visiting historical and cultural sights such as the Po Nagar Cham Towers and the National Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam. Visitors to Nha Trang also enjoy fresh seafood and a lively nightlife scene on the beach. Nha Trang is served by Cam Ranh Airport, which is located approximately 30 kilometers south of the city and is slated to offer direct international flights in the coming years.

“We’re excited by this latest addition to our hotels and resorts portfolio in Vietnam and to have a presence in Nha Trang,” said Ed Fuller, president & managing director of international lodging for Marriott International. “With our strong representation in most of the major source markets for Nha Trang such as Russia, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia and closer-in regional markets like China and Japan, we are confident that the beautiful Nha Trang Marriott Hotel will be a success from Day One.”

Speaking for Sao Sang Nha Trang Co., Ltd., Chairwoman Ms. Nguyen Thi Xuan Thuy said, “Nha Trang City is regarded as the tourism paradise of Vietnam and has a great potential for tourism development. To build a hotel with international standards, Marriott is the only name we considered after much careful deliberation. We are confident that our cooperation will bring the best in class hotel to Nha Trang. Besides, with a large client base from Marriott’s global network, we expect to attract more visitors from Asia, Europe and especially from the U.S., where Marriott has its strongest presence.”

Guest rooms at the stylish and vibrant Nha Trang Marriott Hotel will be the largest in the city.  The vast majority will have balconies; all will offer beach views and all will feature bathrooms with separate tubs and showers. In-room amenities will include Marriott’s famous plush bed and bath linens and amenities; high definition, flat screen television; high-speed internet access; mini-bar and safe.

For dining and entertainment, the hotel will have a casual, all-day restaurant featuring a permanent buffet; a pool bar and specialty restaurant serving lunch and dinner; and a lobby lounge that will flow into the hotel’s spacious, open lobby.

Recreational amenities will include an outdoor swimming pool; a full-service spa including a relaxation lounge and four treatment rooms; a fitness center and a Marriott kids club.

Conference and social event space at the Nha Trang Marriott Hotel will comprise 670 square meters. The space will include a 500-square meter ballroom that will be divisible into three sections; two meeting rooms in varying configurations and a 40-square meter boardroom.

The Marriott International portfolio in Vietnam current consists of two hotels: the 336-room Renaissance Riverside Saigon Hotel and the 538-room New World Saigon Ho Chi City. Two luxury JW Marriott-brand properties are under construction: the 450-room JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi, scheduled to open in 2012 and the 271-room JW Marriott Danang Resort, planned to open in 2013.
