MOVENPICK Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreeement to manage the Movenpick Resort & Spa, Quy Nhon, in Vietnam and the Movenpick Hotel Makati in Makati City, the Philippines.
“The new properties will bring the number of hotels we have under development in Asia to 18,” said Andreas Mattmüller, COO Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Middle East and Asia.
“We already operate seven hotels in Asia, including two in Thailand, two in Vietnam and one each in the Philippines, India and Singapore. Our vision is to operate 25 hotels in the region by 2015,” he added.
The Mövenpick Resort & Spa, Quy Nhon will be the company’s third hotel in Vietnam, following openings in Saigon and Hanoi. Scheduled to launch by end-2015, the 180-room resort will feature 52 cliff and hill villas, a spa, a 600m2 ballroom, several restaurants, cafés and bars, a boat jetty, a gym, and a wedding studio.
Slated to open in 2016, the Mövenpick Hotel Makati will be the third Mövenpick in the Philippines after the Mövenpick Resort & Spa Cebu and a property on Huma Island, Palawan.
Based within the Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Tower, the Mövenpick Hotel Makati will feature 304 rooms and suites, 250 residences, an all-day dining restaurant, a rooftop venue, a bar with an entertainment lounge, a 1,200m2 ballroom, and a variety of multi-function rooms.
This year, Mövenpick will open the doors to the recently renovated 286-room Mövenpick Suriwongse Hotel Chiang Mai and another property in Huma Island, Palawan.
