DA NANG, Vietnam and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide has announced the signing of a management agreement with local property developer, Bach Dang Hotel Complex Trading Service Company, for a new Hilton Hotels & Resorts property in Da Nang City in central Vietnam.

Already under construction, the 226-room, new-build Hilton Da Nang will be located in Da Nang City, a major port city in central Vietnam and the third largest city in the country.  Located on the East Coast of Vietnam on Bien Dong (the South China Sea), Da Nang serves as a vital trade hub in the region and is a thriving commercial centre.  The six main industrial parks in greater Da Nang house over 4,200 industrial companies.  Da Nang is considered a strategic gateway city to Central Vietnam and also to other important Asian cities as the city has direct international routes to such key cities as Bangkok; Singapore; Seoul, Korea; and Osaka, Japan. 

The new hotel is the second Hilton hotel in Vietnam, joining the highly successful Hilton Hanoi Opera.  The opening will further strengthen the Hilton Worldwide portfolio in Vietnam

"Our growth across the Asia Pacific region continues at an historic pace. The signing of this management agreement for the new-build, 226 room Hilton Da Nang marks the continuation of the expansion of the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand in Vietnam, now a key growth target market for us," said Dave Horton, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. "Da Nang is a thriving industrial city and an increasingly important tourism destination.  Hilton Da Nang will appeal to both leisure and business travellers alike and we are looking forward to bringing the refreshing hospitality we are known for throughout the world to Da Nang City."

Hilton Da Nang will be close to popular tourist attractions such as the renowned Non Nuoc Beach and Marble Mountain. Da Nang is also handy to the neighbouring ancient cities of Hue and Hoi An, both popular tourist destinations due to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites found in both cities. 

The hotel will form part of a large, mixed-use development.  The first tower will comprise a 25-story Hilton hotel and there will be a second tower featuring office and retail space as well as serviced apartments.

Hilton Da Nang will have 226 guest rooms including an executive floor.  The hotel will also feature an array of food and beverage outlets including a stylish all-day, dining restaurant, a lobby lounge featuring a café and a destination bar.  Leisure facilities will include an outdoor swimming pool, a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art health club and a spa.  The hotel's meeting and banquet facilities include six meeting rooms and a 450-sqm ballroom, all featuring the very latest technology, making the hotel the perfect venue for meetings and events.

"Da Nang City is an increasingly important leisure and business destination and there has been a sharp increase in demand in recent years for high quality, upscale, internationally-branded hotels in the city.  In seeking a hotel partner for this development, we wanted to work with a leading global hotel brand that shares our desire to provide world-class hotel facilities and service.  We determined that Hilton was the perfect fit for us.  We are delighted to be working together on the new Hilton Da Nang, and look forward to a long, mutually beneficial partnership," said Than Ha Nhat Thong, chairman, Bach Dang Hotel Complex Trading Service Company.
