Minor International Signs Three More Avani Hotels in Vietnam
Minor International has strengthened its relationship with the Vietnam-based Novaland Group, with the signing of three new Avani hotels in Ho Chi Minh (Saigon), Vung Tau, and Cam Ranh.
Scheduled to open at the end of 2021, the Avani Saigon is located in the historic District 1 of Vietnam's largest city and is surrounded by a blend of colonial and modern architecture with street-side cafes and coffee shops. Just a 30-minute drive from the Tan Son Nhat International Airport, the 217-key property will be part of a 38-storey mixed-use complex that includes retail shops and residences and will feature an all-day dining restaurant and an AvaniSPA.
Avani Cam Ranh Resort & Villas, opening at the end of 2022, will feature 300 rooms and suites, as well as 315 private villas, an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty bistro, a beach club, and 1,200 square metres of meeting and banquet space.
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels, said, "Avani is one of our fastest growing brands, and we are pleased to be working with Novaland Group to develop three properties in Vietnam as part of Minor Hotels' strategic expansion in Southeast Asia. Vietnam is one of the region's most dynamic economies with tremendous growth potential in both domestic and international tourism, thanks to a winning combination of cultural attractions and natural beauty. We look forward to expanding our footprint in Vietnam with Novaland Group and to creating an exceptional product for Avani guests."
Avani currently operates 24 hotels and resorts in 15 countries and has 15 new hotels in the pipeline.
