Scheduled to open in 2020, the Movenpick in Ho Chi Minh City, southern Vietnam, will form part of the Kenton Node Hotel Complex, a major new mixed-use development on the Rach Dia river bank, just 10 minutes from downtown Ho Chi Minh City.

In addition to an extensive, varied inventory of rooms and residences, Mövenpick Hotel Ho Chi Minh City will feature a choice of restaurants and bars, an outdoor infinity swimming pool, a private spa, state-of-the-art fitness centre, and extensive conference and banqueting facilities including a ballroom and several meeting rooms.

The surrounding 84,000 sqm Kenton Node complex will boast high-end retail malls, restaurants, a multiplex cinema and other leisure facilities, plus office space, residential units, a marina, riverside promenade and parks.

The Vietnamese government has also recently announced plans to extend its visa waiver programme for several European countries. Meanwhile, the expansive new Long Thanh International Airport is due to be completed within the next decade, which will provide extended access to Ho Chi Minh City and the entire southern region.
