Indochina Kajima Development Limited (ICC-Kajima), the developers of the innovative hotel brand Wink, have acquired a second site in Da Nang for the construction of a Wink Hotel with Wink Suites.

The latest Wink Hotel will be located in Da Nang’s business and entertainment district and promises to satisfy the young-at-heart traveler’s contemporary desires.

Situated on Tran Hung Dao Street along the banks of the Han River and sandwiched between two of Da Nang’s iconic bridges - the Han River Bridge and the Dragon Bridge - the hotel complex will offer spectacular unobstructed views of the city skyline and Hai Van Mountains on one side and Son Tra Peninsula, Cham Islands and the East Sea on the other.

“The site’s prime location, on the banks of the Han River and in the city’s central business and entertainment district, speaks to the great potential of the development,” said Mr. Tuan Bui, General Director of ICC-Kajima. “Wink Tran Hung Dao will foster a new style of hospitality, a new way to have lots of fun and a new way to experience travel for tourists and business travelers alike.”

Wink Trung Hung Dao will be the brand’s second location in Da Nang, joining its sister property at 178 Tran Phu across the Han River, with a planned opening at the beginning of 2021.

The property will offer a new style of entertainment, innovative food and beverage concepts, minimalist-style guestrooms, state-of-the-art technology, and a well-equipped co-working space; a tantalizing hospitality experience that will be the first of its kind in Vietnam.

Compared to Wink’s first two projects at 75 Nguyen Binh Khiem in Ho Chi Minh City and 178 Tran Phu in Da Nang, ICC-Kajima has much bigger ambitions for the Tran Hung Dao site.

With a total project value of $40 million, the development will be a mixed-use complex consisting of a Wink Hotel, Wink Suites, the brand’s serviced apartments, and a podium devoted to food and beverages (F&B) and entertainment.

The building will have a 25-floor, 60-meter façade that runs across Tran Hung Dao Street along the Han River. The F&B component will occupy the first three floors of the property, housing unique dining and entertainment options. The remaining 22 floors will contain 252 Wink Hotel rooms and 70 Wink Suites.

Wink Suites, ICC-Vanguard’s newest creation, is a serviced apartment offering that personifies the Wink Hotels model. The brand will cater to guests and business professionals who are seeking a long-stay arrangement but still want the hospitality experience that Wink provides. Wink Suites will bring to Da Nang a novel concept that will exemplify Wink’s character in a larger room and full-service format.

ICC-Kajima is currently focusing on finalizing critical pre-development items and working closely with AW2 on the project’s design. Indochina Capital has worked with AW2 on several luxury resort developments in the past, such as The Nam Hai and Six Senses Con Dao. The Paris-based architects promise to deliver a modern design, spacious common areas, and contemporary lifestyle elements, evoking the Wink essence.

ICC-Kajima intends to open 20 Wink Hotels in Vietnam and other parts of Indochina over the next five years.

Wink Hotels is a new hospitality brand emerging in Indochina that takes a bold approach to affordable luxury in the region. The brand caters to modern, aspirational travelers, offering high-quality experiences that are grounded in the local destination.

Wink Hotels is the first hotel product of Indochina Vanguard Hotels Pte Ltd, a joint venture established in 2016 between Indochina Capital Corporation, an innovative leader in Vietnam’s rapidly-growing real estate, financial services and capital markets, and the Singapore-based Vanguard Hotels Pte Ltd.
