Sao Sang Nha Trang, a member of Hoan Cau Group, will develop the hotel on 3,658 square meters at 82 Tran Phu Avenue in Nha Trang. Work will start on the project early next year and it will become one of the most upscale hotels overlooking Nha Trang Bay, one of the worlds most beautiful bays.
With total investment capital of VND700 billion, the upcoming hotel will comprise 250 rooms, 17 stories and two basements. It will be launched in 2013, according to Sao Sang Nha Trang.
Nguyen Thi Xuan Thuy, chairwoman and general director of Sao Sang Nha Trang, said Nha Trang City was regarded as the tourism paradise of Vietnam and had great potential for tourism development.
“To build a hotel with international standards, Marriott is the only name we have considered after careful deliberation,” she said. “We are confident that our cooperation will bring the best in class hotel to Nha Trang.
There are many kinds of flowers all over the hotel, decorating all room's balconies and pleasing our precious guests with their beauty and aroma.
“Besides, with a large client base from Marriotts global network, we expect to attract visitors from Asia, Europe and especially from the U.S., where Marriott has its strongest presence.”
Ed Fuller, president and managing director of international lodging for Marriott International, said in a statement, “We are excited by this latest addition to our hotels and resorts portfolio in Vietnam and to have a presence in Nha Trang City.
“With our strong representation in most of the major source markets for Nha Trang such as Russia, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia and closer-in regional markets like China and Japan, we are confident that the beautiful Nha Trang Marriott Hotel will be a success from Day One.”
Last year, Nha Trang City has attracted more than one million local and foreign tourists. As a result of high visitor arrivals, the demand for accommodation and entertainment services has grown rapidly.
The Nha Trang Marriott Hotel will satisfy the increasing demand for upscale accommodation for visitors to Nha Trang, according to the local company.
