SWISS hotelier Mövenpick recently celebrated the grand opening of its Mövenpick Hotel Saigon following a $15-million renovation which encompassed every room, public space, restaurant and retail outlet positioned behind the property’s shimmering new modernist façade.
Located in the bustling Phu Nhuan District, just five minutes from Ho Chi Minh City’s international airport, the Mövenpick Hotel Saigon, which is exhibiting at ITB Asia, has been redesigned in high style with the business traveller firmly in mind. Twenty-seven new rooms have been added, bringing the property’s total to 278, while a pair of new chefs have invigorated each exciting dining option.
“Ho Chi Minh City is the second-fastest-growing city in the developing world and that means businessmen and women are arriving here in droves, pretty much 24/7,” said general manager Knuth Kiefer.
“The Mövenpick Hotel Saigon isn’t merely positioned at the heart of all this change, all this progress, all this energy. We are part of it. With these upgrades, we have kept pace in terms of amenity and technology while providing business and leisure travellers a respite from city life that is at once hip, serene and accommodating.”
There are five categories of accommodation in the new hotel: superior, deluxe, premium, family and executive club. In addition, like its sister property in Hanoi, where they have been very well received, the Mövenpick Hotel Saigon will feature six rooms dedicated to the female business traveler, with specially conceived amenities (soft hangars, make-up tables, high-powered hair dryers).
