Accor has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Vietnam with the opening of the Mercure Vung Tau Resort. Located on the Nghinh Phong Cape in southern Vietnam’s Bien Hoa Province, the 80-room resort is 96 km from Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Saigon.
“Every Mercure is unique to its destination, so we are excited to introduce our first Mercure hotel in southern Vietnam to showcase the region’s natural beauty and heritage,” said Patrick Basset, chief operating officer of Accor in Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia and the Maldives. “With over 500 Mercure hotels globally, the brand has an extensive reputation throughout the world and the opening of the hotel will drive greater tourism in Vung Tau from long-haul markets to support domestic demand.”
“The opening of this property is special because it boasts a fantastic location right on the seafront with a stunning landscape. It is only a short drive from Ho Chi Minh City, making it the perfect seaside weekend escape for residents and tourists to the popular southern city,” said Anthony Quin, general manager of Mercure Vung Tau Resort.
A former French colonial town, the town is a popular seaside escape nestled on a peninsula and surrounded on three sides by the ocean. In addition to its long beaches, the city is home to the former mansion of Indochina’s French governor and the Vung Tau Lighthouse atop Small Mountain.
