Movenpick Hotels & Resorts underlines its presence in Vietnam by signing up to manage the Movenpick Resort Lang Co on the country’s tropical central coast.

The upscale property is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of this year in an idyllic beachfront location and is the hospitality firm’s sixth pipelined property in Vietnam. Cocooned by the East Sea and an unspoiled stretch of white sand beach, it offers 148 spacious guestrooms, suites and luxury one, two and three-bedroom villas, all equipped with state-of-the-art amenities and deluxe furnishings.

“Vietnam is a prime development focus for Movenpick as we look to secure our presence in strategic locations across Asia,” said Andrew Langdon, chief development officer at Movenpick Hotels & Resorts.

“Our upcoming property in Lang Co will fill a gap in the market for upscale properties on the country’s attractive central coast, home to stunning beaches, a rich cultural heritage, and deemed an idyllic haven by international travellers who have only just started discovering the area.”

Guests can take advantage of several leisure facilities designed for couples and families including a spa, fitness centre, outdoor swimming pool and kids’ club, while the 18-hole Laguna Lang Co golf course, designed by sporting legend Nick Faldo, is located just minutes away.

During their stay, guests can relax with a refreshing drink at the pool bar or in the lobby lounge and dine at the two all-day restaurants, which will serve Vietnamese dishes and international cuisine.

Perfect for special occasions and seminars, the hotel also has meeting rooms and an expansive ballroom to cater to all types of events, from corporate retreats to incentives. The resort will be easily accessible from Danang International Airport, which now offers direct connections to and from many of Asia’s largest cities including Bangkok, Singapore, Seoul, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Beijing, as well as domestic links across Vietnam.

This development strategy will gain further traction with the launch of Movenpick Resort Phu Quoc in 2019 and the opening of Movenpick Resort & Spa Quy Nhon, Movenpick Hotel & Residences Han River, Danang and Movenpick Hotel Quang Binh in 2020.
