Radisson Hotel Group has signed three new hotels for Vietnam’s coastline.

Slated to open in 2023, the Radisson Blu Resort, Quy Nhon will be in the Binh Dinh province, approximately halfway between the cities of Nha Trang and Hoi An. The property will have 120 rooms and suites in the main building and 160 standalone villas along with several restaurants, bars and function spaces. Phu Cat Airport, which offers direct flights to and from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, is less than an hour’s drive away.

In Q2 2020, the Radisson Hotel Danang will bring the Radisson brand to the largest city on Vietnam’s central coast. The hotel is under construction in the city’s central Phuoc My Ward and will have 182 rooms and suites, a restaurant, a lounge, a spa, a fitness center, a swimming pool with pool bar and several meeting spaces. Danang International Airport is a 10-minute drive from the hotel.

Lastly in Q1 2021, the Radisson Hotel Quang Binh will open in the seafront city of Dong Hoi in a colonial-style building. Upon opening, this downtown hotel will have a restaurant, a lobby lounge, a swimming pool, a fitness center, a ballroom and meeting spaces. Dong Hoi is located on Vietnam’s north-central coast, 266 kilometers north of Danang, and is the capital of Quang Binh province. 

“Vietnam is one of the world’s most attractive countries, with strong economic growth, a vibrant culture and spectacular scenery,” said Katerina Giannouka, president, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group. “Danang has emerged as an important regional hub for business and leisure travel, while Quy Nhon and Dong Hoi are prime locations about to open up to international tourism. Our upscale Radisson and upper-upscale Radisson Blu are perfectly suited to domestic and overseas guests in these up-and-coming destinations.”

Vietnam’s tourism industry is riding the crest of a wave: The country reported 14.5 million international visitors in the first 10 months of 2019, up 13 percent year-over-year, according to the country’s tourism board. This puts it on track toward achieving another full-year record. Rising affluence and improving infrastructure also are driving domestic tourism growth. As a result, demand for accommodation is surging: According to the latest data from STR, there are now almost 30,000 rooms under construction in Vietnam, which equates to 28 percent of the country’s existing inventory.

Radisson Hotel Group’s upper-upscale Radisson Blu brand is already present in Phu Quoc and Cam Ranh, and the company soon will launch in Hoi An, while the upscale Radisson brand soon will debut in Phu Quoc.
