The CEO of Travelodge (Thailand), Jonathan Wigley, has announced the first Travelodge hotel in Vietnam. The hotel is also the first Skye by Travelodge, which is the upper midscale brand of Travelodge Asia’s brand portfolio.
Skye by Travelodge Arena Nha Trang will be ready to open in 2020. The 2,497-room Skye by Travelodge Arena Nha Trang, will feature The Lodge, and all-day dining restaurant, a gym and large swimming pool. The hotel will be part of mixed use development incorporating beach club, performance arena, retail shops and restaurants.
“This is the largest property in our hotel management portfolio and I am very excited. Travelodge is already very well-known among travellers in Europe and has become more renowned in Asia last year with the opening of Travelodge hotels in Thailand, Hong Kong and Indonesia,” said Wigley.
Stephen Burt, chairman of Travelodge Asia, said:“We consider Vietnam to be a very important destination for our company. It is a vibrant country that international travellers are discovering in ever increasing numbers. It is also very encouraging to observe the level of government support for transport and social infrastructure that will further assist the hospitality industry.”
Burt added: “Globally, there are over 1,000 Travelodge-branded hotels across North America, Europe, Australia and the brand will continue to gain momentum across Asia due to a very strong development pipeline.”
