IHG increases its Vietnam portfolio
IHG, one of the world’s leading hotel companies, signed agreements with Ho Tram Project Company Limited (HTP) to rebrand The Grand Ho Tram at the Ho Tram Strip integrated resort to InterContinental Grand Ho Tram within a year after refurbishments. The signing reinforces IHG’s growth in resort locations in Vietnam, and strengthens its presence in the region.
Serena Lim, Vice President, Development for IHG South East Asia & Korea, commented: “This signing marks a new milestone in our growth in Vietnam, as we continue to expand our InterContinental brand. As international and domestic travel continues to grow, the expansion of the property and facilities puts us in a great position to provide different experiences for a diverse group of guests.”
As the first integrated resort to have launched in Vietnam, the Ho Tram Strip has developed a reputation as one of Vietnam’s most popular leisure and offsite MICE locations due to its pristine beaches and short two-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City. Its accessibility makes it an attractive getaway for both domestic and international travellers.
With The Grand Ho Tram to be rebranded InterContinental Grand Ho Tram, the 533-key luxury property is an integrated resort with three F&B outlets, a state-of-the-art convention centre that can accommodate up to 1,300 people inclusive of a large ballroom and five meeting rooms, outdoor pools, gym, spa, golf course, along with a retail space featuring a multitude of entertainment options including restaurants, bars, lounges, clubs and a casino gaming floor. Also situated on the Ho Tram Strip is the renown 18-hole links championship golf course, The Bluffs, designed by Greg Norman, and ranked top 100 in the world by Golf Digest.
Mr. Michael Kelly, Chairman and CEO of HTP, said: “We are delighted to continue our long-standing partnership with IHG with the developments on the Ho Tram Strip. IHG has an impressive track record in Vietnam with a large presence and is a strong brand-fit for our property with InterContinental. Together, we look forward to hosting guests and delivering memorable experiences here in Ho Tram.”
IHG currently has 13 hotels in Vietnam, with more than half under the InterContinental brand including award winning properties such as the acclaimed InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort and InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort.
