Hilton has announced a further expansion of its Vietnamese portfolio by signing two management agreements with two affiliates of the BRG Group for DoubleTree by Hilton Vung Tau in Vung Tau and Hilton Garden Inn Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City, both of which are scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2022.

“DoubleTree by Hilton Vung Tau and Hilton Garden Inn Saigon are significant additions to our expanding footprint in Vietnam,’ said Mr. Guy Phillips, Senior Vice President, Development - Asia & Australasia at Hilton. “Signing three deals in the past three months, including these hotels, not only demonstrates Hilton’s growth momentum in Vietnam but also the huge potential for more developments across established and upcoming destinations in the country. Furthermore, we are thrilled to build on our successful alliance with the BRG Group and its affiliates and remain committed to delivering exceptional returns to our owners.”

With the signing of the two hotels, Hilton now has a total of eleven operating or under development in Vietnam, eight of which are owned by the BRG Group.

The 250-room DoubleTree by Hilton Vung Tau is located in the heart of Vung Tau, a popular coastal destination near Ho Chi Minh City known for its long stretches of beaches, lakes, and thermal springs. The hotel is an 800-meter walk from the famous Bai Truoc Beach and a short drive away from the Dong Xuyen Industrial Park. Offering more than 1,700 sq m of meeting space, including a ballroom, the hotel will have four dining and bar outlets, a swimming pool, a fitness center, and a spa.

Hilton Garden Inn Saigon, meanwhile, is located in District 1, home to most administrative offices, consulates, and multinational companies in Ho Chi Minh City. The 160-room hotel is within 1.5 km of key attractions such as the Opera House, Reunification Palace, and Notre-Dame Cathedral. The hotel will offer two dining and bar outlets, a fitness center, and a swimming pool.

“We are proud to have the best performing hotel brands in the world and delighted to be expanding the presence of DoubleTree by Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn in Vietnam,” said Mr. Sean Wooden, Regional Head of Brand Management, Asia Pacific. “Our aim is to be everywhere our customers want to be. In bringing our mid-market brand to Ho Chi Minh City and DoubleTree by Hilton to thriving tourism destinations such as Vung Tau, we are doing just that.”

According to Ms. Nguyen Thi Nga, Chairwoman of the BRG Group, DoubleTree by Hilton Vung Tau and Hilton Garden Inn Saigon are the results of the long-term partnership between the Group and Hilton. “The two new hotels will be outstanding products that attract both domestic and foreign tourists to the south of Vietnam,” she said.

As part of the Hilton portfolio, DoubleTree by Hilton Vung Tau and Hilton Garden Inn Saigon will participate in Hilton Honors, the award-winning loyalty program for Hilton’s 14 distinct hotel brands. Hilton Honors members receive an exclusive member’s rate along with Honors Points, free standard wi-fi, digital check-in, and free bookings when booking directly through Hilton.
