Dusit International has signed a management agreement with Ha Dat Company to operate dusitD2 Vung Tau, the first dusitD2 branded property in Vietnam.
The hotel is slated to open in quarter two of 2018.
Situated approximately 90 kilometres from Ho Chi Minh City in the south of Vietnam, Vung Tau is the former capital of Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province and is spectacularly located on a peninsula with extensive beaches.
Vung Tau serves as a popular seaside getaway for domestic travellers as well as tourists from around south-east Asia.
The upscale dusitD2 Vung Tau is located on the west of the peninsula approximately ten minutes by car from Vung Tau centre.
Upon completion, the hotel will comprise 100 rooms set within independent bungalows along with two grand villas.
In line with dusitD2 branding, dusitD2 Vung Tau has a contemporary design with creative and vibrant décor.
Facilities include an all-day-dining outlet, seafood restaurant, a stylish bar, a spa and gym, and a ballroom.
“Last year, Vietnam welcomed ten million international tourists, an increase of 26 per cent from 2015, and this positive growth only looks set to continue,” said Suphajee Suthumpun, group chief executive, Dusit International.
“So now is the perfect time to introduce our contemporary dusitD2 brand to the market, and we are delighted Ha Dat Company has given us this opportunity.
“We now look forward to providing a hotel experience that not only delights guests with our signature gracious hospitality inspired by authentic Thai values, but which also elevates Vung Tau’s profile as a destination while having a positive impact on the local community.”
With 29 properties currently in operation across four brands in eight countries, Dusit International is in a significant growth phase which will see the number of Dusit properties reach 70 within the next three to four years across key markets worldwide.
