Wink Hotels, the visionary hotel brand created by Indochina Vanguard Hotels, has confirmed its first locations in Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang.

The Ho Chi Minh City site is located at 75 Nguyen Binh Kiem in a rapidly gentrifying area in District 1, the city’s CBD. Scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2019, the first Ho Chi Minh City Wink Hotel will consist of 226 rooms. Demolition of the existing structure at the site is ongoing and the development and hotel management teams are in the process of refining the design and completing other critical pre-development items.

The Da Nang site is located at 178 Tran Phu in the heart of the city’s business and entertainment district. The 243-room Wink Hotel will feature a sky lobby and spectacular views of the Han River, Hai Van Pass, Son Tra Peninsula, and the East Sea. It is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2020.

“Indochina Capital has always been bullish on the hospitality market in Vietnam, as evidenced by The Nam Hai, Six Senses Con Dao, and Hyatt Regency Da Nang,” Mr. Peter R. Ryder, CEO of Indochina Capital, pointed out. “The roll-out of Wink Hotels will add to the group’s portfolio of past and present hospitality projects, introducing a novel hotel concept - Vietnam’s first international hotel brand - that will redefine traditional hospitality norms.”

The two sites have been formally handed over to owner-developers ICC-Kajima, the real estate development arm of Indochina Capital, the US’s leading Vietnam-based property developer.

Formed under a joint venture with the Kajima Corporation, Japan’s most prolific overseas real estate developer, the group’s core mandate is to develop innovative and high-quality projects throughout Vietnam. Wink typifies the ICC-Kajima approach.

Wink Hotels seeks to personify the dynamic youthful generation emerging throughout the region. Blending modern, creative design and functionality with traditional Vietnamese values, each hotel promises to satisfy the young-at-heart traveler’s contemporary set of desires. Each hotel will offer a new style of entertainment, innovative food and beverage concepts, minimalist-style guestrooms, state-of-the-art technology, and a well-equipped co-working space - a tantalizing hospitality experience that will be the first of its kind in Vietnam.

The two hotels in Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang will be the first of a targeted 20-plus Wink Hotels to be developed, opened, and operated throughout Vietnam and neighboring Indochina countries by the end of 2023.
