Wyndham Hotel Group has signed a deal to open a hotel in Danang’s tallest building.
The 779-room, 57-story hotel tower will be part of a four-tower hotel and “condotel” complex currently under construction. The $446 million project, expected to open in September 2018, is being developed by PPC An Thinh Danang. Wyndham Hotel Asia Pacific Co. will manage the hotel.
Wyndham Soleil Danang, located close to My Khe Beach, will be the brand’s second location in Vietnam following the opening of Wyndham Legend Halong Bay last month.
“With airport improvements underway, as well as its proximity to scenic beaches and UNESCO World Heritage sites, Danang is a market poised for great growth within a country popular with world travellers,” Barry Robinson, president and managing director of Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim, said in a statement.
The country, he said, has attracted more than 5.5 million visitors so far this year—“an increase of more than 20 percent over last year.” As such, Robinson said, the company is focusing its efforts on increasing its presence in emerging destinations throughout the country.
