Nobu Hospitality will be opening its first Nobu hotel, restaurant and residences in Vietnam in a luxury beachfront urban resort destination in southern coastal Danang.

The new development is in partnership with Viet Capital Real Estate (VCRE) and Phoenix Holdings, whose chairman, Henry Nguyen, also owns VCRE, among other enterprises, and is the founding owner of the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC).

Situated along Danang’s My Khe beachfront on Vo Nguyen Giap Street, Nobu will occupy a 43-storey tower, the tallest building in the city. The hotel will house 200 guest rooms, including 18 suites, expansive meeting and event spaces, and a wellness and fitness facility. In addition, there will be 271 residential units offering one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations as well as two skyline penthouse units.

Situated below the hotel and residences, the Danang City Centre podium will offer high-end retail shopping, an upscale Chinese restaurant, a modern Vietnamese fine-dining restaurant, and an American steakhouse. A cocktail bar and lounge will be positioned on the rooftop of the building, offering stunning views for sunset drinks and after-hours entertainment in Danang.

Trevor Horwell, Nobu Hospitality CEO, said that the group’s VCRE partners shares their “commitment in growing Nobu Hospitality in other destinations in Vietnam.”
