It’s fantastic to be growing one of the world’s largest upscale brands, Crowne Plaza, in Central Vietnam.
The Covid-19 pandemic is showing us just how much our life and work are changing, and in many ways, becoming more integrated with each other. Nowhere is this more evident in Danang, where city and beach, and work and play, mix together. We are delighted to be partnering with PGT Group, who have extensive experience in the Danang and Hoi An area, to bring out the best of Danang through this hotel partnership.
Mr. Le Anh Trieu, Chairman of PGT Group, commented:
As we expand further into commercial real estate ownership, it’s fantastic to partner with IHG and benefit from both their strong local presence in Vietnam and their global scale and systems.
We instinctively knew that the Crowne Plaza brand was the right match for what we were trying to achieve in our mixed-use development close to My Khe Beach. The upscale brand’s business and meetings focus will be an ideal complement to the range of stylish, high-end apartments. The development will create a vibrant atmosphere in the area where work and life will integrate seamlessly.
