Mandarin Oriental to open Vietnam hotel in 2020

Ho Chi Minh City's Union Square Saigon will be the site of 227-room hotel by Mandarin Oriental.

A new property called Mandarin Oriental, Saigon is set to open in 2020 as part of Union Square Saigon, a commercial building that is being renovated in the city centre.

The hotel will be on the upper floors of the mixed-use complex, which will also include a range of luxury retail outlets - the project owner is Union Square Company Limited.

Mandarin Oriental, Saigon will include 227 guestrooms and suites, six restaurants and bars, a range of meeting and banqueting spaces, a fitness centre, a Spa at Mandarin Oriental and an outdoor swimming pool.

Chief executive of Mandarin Oriental James Riley said: "Ho Chi Minh City is the leading commercial hub in Vietnam and at the heart of the country’s rapidly growing economy."

The property will be next to the Saigon Opera House, the People’s Committee Building and within walking distance of most of the key landmarks in the city.
