Fusion adds 10 hotels to its collection in Vietnam and launches new brands

Fusion is substantially expanding its Vietnam presence by tripling the number of properties in the country.

Over the next three years, the wellness lodging specialists will launch 10 new hotels and resorts, representing 1,385 rooms and private villas, suites and apartments.

“We see a tremendous opportunity to expand Fusion’s presence in the country,” said Peter Meyer, chief executive of Fusion. “Recognising that there are so many beautiful, and largely undeveloped destinations in Vietnam.”

Fusion Suites Vung Tau, located in the weekend getaway beach destination near Saigon, is set to welcome guests from early 2020. This new-build features 100 apartments and 71 suites, a spa with 12-double bed treatment rooms, aerial yoga studio, rooftop infinity pool with cocktail bar, and the Suites’ signature Fresh Restaurant.

The oceanfront Fusion Resort Quang Binh is located at the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park. Also located in this park is Son Doong, the world’s largest cave.

Fusion’s three-hectare property will feature 60 private villas, each with its own plunge pool. The resort will offer a spacious spa with treatments included in the nightly rate, and several dining options. This latest resort addition will start taking bookings in late 2020.

Maia Quy Nhon, will be the first of a new brand line. Fusion breaks ground on the property late this year and expects to open by mid 2020.

Culinary journeys will be tailored to the location, and guests will be able to choose a different programme each night of their stay.

Options include experiences like farm- & sea-to-table dining, a local food tour, cooking classes as well as pop-up dining. One complimentary daily spa treatment will round out this new brand’s offering.

“Food is an integral part of any holiday adventure,” said Meyer.

“Vietnamese cuisine has now become popular worldwide. Playing to this cuisine’s popularity, we want to take guests beyond well-known dishes like pho and banh mi, educating them on the histories of these iconic foods and other lesser known regional specialties.”

The new product of HIIVE will be introduced in 2020. With a business traveller focus, this three-star plus line will cater to the lodging needs in Vietnam’s industrial zones and developing townships.

Five HIIVE hotels are slated for development over the next three years in four different locations. These include Binh Duong, north of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC); Bac Ninh, just east of Hanoi; Hai Phong, on the northern coast; and, Dong Nai, also near HCMC.
