The new properties are the contemporary new Mövenpick Resort & Spa, Quy Nhon, in Vietnam and the soaring tower of Mövenpick Hotel Makati, Makati City, part of Metro Manila in the Philippines.
“We already operate seven hotels in Asia including two in Thailand, two in Vietnam and one each in the Philippines, India and Singapore, but the new properties will bring the number of hotels we have under development in Asia up to 18,” said Andreas Mattmüller, chief operating officer for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Middle East and Asia. “Our vision is to operate 25 hotels in the region by 2015.”
The move is in line to create a balanced portfolio of approximately 25 hotels in each of the regions where it operates – Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
The new properties are impressive additions to the worldwide portfolio of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts which have a further 30 projects under development – from Paris to Palawan.
The Mövenpick Resort & Spa, Quy Nhon is scheduled to open at the end of 2015. The hotel boasts 180-rooms feature 52 individual cliff and hill villas, a spa, ballroom, boardrooms, a large variety of restaurants, cafés and bars, extensive pools and tropical gardens, boat jetty, gym and even a wedding studio and wind-power station.
The Mövenpick Hotel Makati, meanwhile, is set to open in 2016 and will feature 304 rooms and suites as well as 250 residences. In addition to a 300-seat all-day dining restaurant, the hotel will also enjoy Chinese and Japanese outlets, a rooftop venue and a bar with entertainment lounge.
This year the company will also open the doors to two of its newest hotels; the renovated 286-room Mövenpick Suriwongse Hotel Chiang Mai and a Mövenpick property in Huma Island.
