Marriott is to introduce its mid-market Courtyard by Marriott brand in Vietnam, under a management agreement with CY – Ham Tan Resort Limited Company.

The 200-room hotel, scheduled to open in 2012, will be located on a pristine beachfront site boasting natural sand dunes in the area of La Gi, near the town of Ham Tan, about a three-hour drive along Vietnam’s southeastern coast from Ho Chi Minh City. It will be part of a mixed-used development that will be built in phases. The project will initially include a residential component and will later add additional hotels, more residential units, a golf course and golf villas.

Catering to leisure and incentive guests, the 200-room Courtyard by Marriott Ham Tan, Vietnam will consist of a mix of standard guest rooms in a series of low-rise buildings as well as semi-detached bungalows located across the expansive development.

At the Courtyard by Marriott Ham Tan, Vietnam, guests will have a variety of dining options including Courtyard’s signature MoMo Café, a pool bar & grill and an intimate lobby lounge.

 Incentive groups will benefit from an outdoor area for catered functions and team-building activities as well as 500 square meters of flexible indoor space.

 Leisure guests will be able to enjoy the elaborate pool and desk area, recreational pavilion with a Kids Club and games room as well as an exercise room and spa with six treatment rooms and an area for foot reflexology.

With more than 860 locations in 30 countries, Courtyard is Marriott’s largest brand. 200 additional Courtyard by Marriott hotels will open around the world over the next three years.

Ed Fuller, president and managing director of international lodging for Marriott International, said, “With the opening of this hotel, we’ll be able to offer travelers in Vietnam a choice of four hotel brands from luxury to mid-priced. The World Travel & Tourism Council forecasts that Vietnam tourism over the next 10 years will grow to more than 7 million visitors annually, twice what it was in 2007, and we are positioning ourselves to be able to offer these visitors a hotel stay no matter what their travel budget dictates.”

Marriott International currently manages two properties in Vietnam: the Renaissance Riverside Saigon Hotel and the New World Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. Three properties are currently planned or under construction. They include the 450-room JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi and the 250-room Nha Trang Marriott Hotel, both of which are scheduled to open in 2013. The 271-room JW Marriott Danang Resort is expected to open in 2014.
