by | 20 Oct 2022 | Hotel Projects, Projects

Hilton Worldwide is to debut its Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts brand in Vietnam with the conversion of existing group property, Hilton Hanoi Opera.

Scheduled to open in 2025, Waldorf Astoria Hanoi will join Hilton’s pipeline of nine other hotels and resorts that will open in Vietnam in the coming years.

Reimagined accommodations

The hotel is owned by BRG Group and managed by Hilton, and will feature fully reimagined accommodations across each of its 187 rooms and suites, after extensive renovations are complete.

Four dining concepts will be available onsite, including the brand’s well known lounge and bar, Peacock Alley, a rooftop lounge and two other distinctive restaurants. Event spaces will total over 1,000 sq m and holistic therapies at the Waldorf Astoria spa.

Superior luxury option

Kevin Jacobs, chief financial officer and president, global development, Hilton, said: “The introduction of Waldorf Astoria Hanoi, with our longstanding partner BRG Group, will offer travellers a superior luxury option in one of Asia Pacific’s most sought-after destinations.”

Nguyen Thi Nga, chairman, BRG Group commented: “Through our partnership with Hilton, we are confident Waldorf Astoria Hanoi will play a major part in accelerating Vietnam’s image as one of Asia’s most dynamic destinations for luxury travellers, bolstering the appeal and growth of the country’s luxury tourism sector.”

Desired destinations

Dino Michael, senior vice president and global head, luxury brands, Hilton, added: “Each Waldorf Astoria property in our global portfolio represents an icon of accentuated, world-class luxury with distinctive and tasteful experiences synonymous with our brand. The opening of the Waldorf Astoria Hanoi in 2025 will be that and more, as well as another distinguished addition to our ever-expanding portfolio in the world’s most desired destinations.”

Waldorf Astoria operates six hotels in China, Thailand and the Maldives, and will more than double its presence in Asia Pacific over the next five years. Projects underway include Waldorf Astoria Jakarta, bringing 182 keys to the Indonesian capital in Q3 2023; the 210-room Waldorf Astoria Hotel Xian arriving in China in Q2 2025 and Waldorf Astoria Hotel Osaka, adding 250 keys to the Japanese city in 2025.
