The new-build Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City will have 288 guestrooms and 527 serviced apartments. The hotel opening in 2020 will be part of the Kenton Node Hotel Complex mixed-use development, which is currently being constructed on the Rach Dia river bank near downtown Ho Chi Minh City. The surrounding 21-acre Kenton Node complex will have retail malls, restaurants, a multiplex cinema, other leisure facilities, office space, residential units, a marina, riverside promenade and parks.

“With its versatile collection of hotel rooms, residences and world-class facilities, Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City will cater to a wide variety of customer profiles in both the short, and extended/long stay segments,’” Andrew Langdon, CDO for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, said in a statement.
The signing of Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City is also part of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts' expansion in Vietnam. The company currently has a hotel in the capital city Hanoi and a resort in Cam Ranh, which opened in January 2018. However, over the next few years, Mövenpick will open a series of new hotels and resorts in key destinations across the country, including Cam Ranh, Phu Quoc, Quy Nhon, Quang Binh, Danang and Lang Co. The 148-room Mövenpick Resort Lang Co is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2018.
