Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has announced its plans to manage two new hotels in Vietnam and the Philippines.
The new properties include the 180-room Mövenpick Resort and Spa in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, and the 304-room Mövenpick Hotel Makati in the Philippines, scheduled to open in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Middle East and Asia chief operating officer Andreas Mattmüller said that the company’s vision was to operate 25 hotels in Asia by 2015.
"We already operate seven hotels in Asia, with two in Thailand, two in Vietnam and one each in the Philippines, India and Singapore, but the new properties will bring the number of hotels we have under development in Asia up to 18," Mattmüller added.
According to the company, the decision to manage the properties is in line with its strategy to create a balanced portfolio of about 25 hotels in each of the regions of Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
The Mövenpick Resort & Spa, Quy Nhon is the group’s third hotel in Vietnam and will feature 52 individual cliff and hill villas, a spa, a 6,458ft² ballroom, boardrooms, restaurants, cafés and bars, pools and tropical gardens, boat jetty, gym, a wedding studio and wind power station.
The Mövenpick Hotel Makati, the third property to be operated by the Swiss company in the Philippines, offers 250 residences, a 300-seat restaurant, a bar with entertainment lounge, 12,916ft² ballroom and multi-function rooms.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, which operates 72 hotels and has a further 30 projects from Paris to Palawan under development, will open its recently renovated 286-room Mövenpick Suriwongse Hotel Chiang Mai and the Mövenpick property in Huma Island in 2012.
