The Wyndham Hotel Group will be entering the hotel market in Vietnam after announcing it will open a brand new hotel in early 2016.

The brand new Wyndham Legend Halong will be a new-build and will be located in Halong City in Vietnam, close to the stunning World Heritage-listed site Halong Bay.

The luxury hotel will have 217 guest rooms and suites, as well as a collection of upscale facilities including a fitness centre, a pool with bar, an all-day restaurant, and meeting rooms for business travellers.

"Vietnam is a key tourism destination in South East Asia, drawing just shy of eight million visitors in 2014, and Halong Bay is one of the country's premier attractions," stated Barry Robinson, the President and Managing Director for South East Asia and Pacific Rim for the Wyndham Hotel Group.

"With its unique beauty, its growing popularity among travellers, and its key positioning along Vietnam's main route to southern China, Halong Bay is exactly the kind of destination we're expanding in right now. Wyndham Legend Halong will provide visitors to this beautiful part of the world with all the comforts and amenities you would expect from a world-class, upscale hotel."

The property will be owned by Ha Long Star Service & Tourist Joint Stock Company and is expected to cost USD$40 million.

"We are proud to partner with the world's largest hotel company to introduce the Wyndham® brand to Vietnam," added Dr Nguyen Ba Dung, the Chairman of Ha Long Star Service & Tourist Joint Stock Company.

"We believe this hotel will boost tourism in the region and become a favourite among travellers to Halong Bay."

Shaped like a seahorse, Vietnam is a country in South East Asia that is rich in history, heritage and culture. The country is home to an array of stunning natural landscapes such as the Marble Mountains, terraced rice fields, vast sandy beaches, and emerald undulating hills.

The popular tourist attraction Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that boasts 1,600 jagged limestone islands and karsts that soar up from calm jade waters.
