Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is accelerating its expansion drive in Vietnam after signing a deal to manage the Mövenpick Resort Lang Co on the country’s tropical central coast.

The 148-key upscale property, which is scheduled to open in Q4 2018 in an idyllic beachfront location, is the hospitality firm’s sixth pipelined property in Vietnam – a destination earmarked for rapid growth as part of its ambitious Asian development strategy. The company already operates the successful 144-key Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi.

Mövenpick Resort Lang Co, which is cocooned by the East Sea and an unspoiled stretch of white sand beach, will feature rooms, suites and a luxury collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom villas, all equipped with state-of-the-art amenities and deluxe furnishings.

It will be located in one of Asia’s most desirable holiday destinations and just 30km from Danang, the largest city on Vietnam’s central coast; 60km from Hoi An, the country’s enchanting UNESCO-listed port town; and 70km from Hue, the historic former capital city.

“Vietnam is a prime development focus for Mövenpick as we look to secure our presence in strategic locations across Asia,” commented Andrew Langdon, Chief Development Officer at Mövenpick 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.”

The resort will feature an outstanding range of leisure facilities that appeal to 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 Sir Nick Faldo, is located just minutes away.
