VIETNAM – Accor Opens Mercure Resort in Vung Tau, Vietnam
Accor has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Vietnam with the opening of the Mercure Vung Tau Resort.
Located on the Nghinh Phong Cape in southern Vietnam’s Bien Hoa Province, the 80-room Mercure Vung Tau Resort is 96 km from Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Saigon.
A former French colonial town, Vung Tau is a popular seaside escape nestled on a peninsula and surrounded on three sides by the ocean. In addition to its long beaches, the city is home to the former mansion of Indochina’s French governor and the Vung Tau Lighthouse atop Small Mountain.
“Every Mercure is unique to its destination, so we are excited to introduce our first Mercure hotel in southern Vietnam to showcase the region’s natural beauty and heritage,” said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of Accor, Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives. “With over 500 Mercure hotels globally, the brand has an extensive reputation throughout the world and the opening of Mercure Vung Tau will drive greater tourism in Vung Tau from long-haul markets to support domestic demand.”
The resort features an all-day dining restaurant offering a buffet and a la carte menu options. For light meals and homemade crafted beverages, two bars, including the Beach Bar and Lounge Bar serve a range of savoury snacks and refreshments throughout the day.
Guests looking to keep up with their fitness regime can make use of the fitness centre while the outdoor swimming pool set amongst lovely seaside gardens offers a refreshing swim. There is also a dedicated kid’s area where children can play and a private beach.
“The opening of Mercure Vung Tau Resort is very special because the hotel boasts a fantastic location right on the seafront with a stunning landscape. It is only a short drive from Ho Chi Minh City, making it the perfect seaside weekend escape for residents and tourists to the popular southern city,” said Anthony Quin, General Manager of Mercure Vung Tau Resort.
