Southeast Asia with close to 5,000 units in 23 properties.
Citadines Apartíhotel is our fastest growing brand globally that
has won numerous accolades internationally. Our first Citadines
Apartíhotel in Vietnam will cater to the increasing number of
independent travellers looking for the flexibility to customise
their experience by choosing the services they require. There is
strong potential for Citadines in Nha Trang, a vibrant city where
tourism is a key economic driver. Citadines will enable us to
reach another segment of customers in Vietnam, where we have built
a strong presence over the last 20 years with our established
Somerset brand that appeals to guests travelling with children.Ē

ďVietnam is a key growth market
for Ascott and we are on track to achieve our target of 7,000
units by 2020. Demand for serviced residences remains strong as
more multinational companies set up offices in the country with
increasing foreign direct investment and visitors. Ascott is the
largest international serviced residence owner-operator in
Vietnam, and of our 23 properties, 13 are slated to open over the
next four years. Somerset West Point Hanoi will soon start
operations and Citadines Blue Cove Danang, our biggest
property globally with 550 units, is slated to open this year,Ē Ms
Ascott continues to see significant
opportunities to expand in Vietnam. The country attracted US$19
billion in foreign direct investment in the first half of 2017, up
55% against the same period last year. More than 10 million
international visitors arrived in Vietnam in 2016, a 26% increase
from 2015, and the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism
projected 20 million visitors by 2020.
