Travelodge has signed its first hotel in Vietnam
and used the opportunity to launch a new “upper midscale” brand -
Skye by Travelodge.
The Skye by Travelodge Arena Nha Trang is
scheduled to open in 2020.
Facilities at the 2,497-room Skye by
Travelodge Arena Nha Trang will include an all-day dining
restaurant, a gym and large swimming pool.
The hotel will be part
of a mixed use development incorporating beach club, performance
arena, retail shops and restaurants.
“This is the largest property in our hotel
management portfolio and I am very excited. Travelodge is already
very well-known among travellers in Europe and has become more
renowned in Asia last year with the opening of Travelodge hotels
in Thailand, Hong Kong and Indonesia,” said CEO of Travelodge
Stephen Burt, Chairman of Travelodge Asia, said, “We consider
Vietnam to be a very important destination for our company. It is
a vibrant country that international travellers are discovering in
ever increasing numbers. It is also very encouraging to observe
the level of government support for transport and social
infrastructure that will further assist the hospitality industry.
Globally, there are over 1,000 Travelodge-branded hotels across
North America, Europe, Australia and the brand will continue to
gain momentum across Asia due to a very strong development
