(#wanderlusttips #Novotel #AccorHotels) Novotel, with its consistently high service standards, spacious and modular rooms, commitment to well-being, family offerings and stand-out meeting facilities, has ingrained its top-of- mind position in the international midscale category among the new generation of consumers who are travelling – and spending.
Established in 1967, Novotel is AccorHotels’ first and most enduring brand, operating 450 hotels and resorts in 61 countries – six of them in Vietnam with 1,362 rooms, representing AccorHotels’ largest brand presence in the country. Recent additions include Novotel Phu Quoc Resort, the region’s flagship beachfront property which opened in January 2016 with 366 rooms, suites and villas on the namesake island that is becoming increasingly popular for its beauty, eco-tourism activities and cultural attractions, and Novotel Suites Hanoi – the first Novotel Suites in Asia Pacific. The hotel officially opened this month in the emerging district of Cau Giay with 151 rooms and suites, and will be followed by other Novotel Suties in Manila and Seoul. Sharing the core DNA of the Novotel brand, Novotel Suites also offer suite-type rooms that are spacious and functional, and can be adapted into a working or reception area. The rooms, which accommodate up to four people, come with a kitchenette, the latest technology, and amenities that cater to all types of guests and for all lengths of stays, particularly medium- to long-term bookings.
Novotels are exceedingly family-friendly, as the brand’s “Novotel&Family” concept offers complimentary room-sharing and breakfast for children under 16, a second room for kids at half price, 5 pm late checkout on Sundays, along with welcome gifts, toys and games for the youngsters. “Novotel’s longevity in the country together with its balanced mix of business and leisure offerings, has made it the hotel of choice among middle-income Vietnamese and their families,” says Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia.
Novotel is in the midst of a global refresh aimed at increasing the brand’s vibrancy and relevancy among business, leisure and family travellers. New offerings include the “Live N Dream” signature bedding experience; larger, livelier, multi-functional lobbies that are aligned with guests’ business and social habits; and Food Exchange, a refreshed all-day- dining concept based on organic and healthy menu options that blend local and international recipes, allowing guests to taste the best of world cuisine at live cooking stations.
To date, there are six Novotel properties operating in Vietnam which include Novotel Danang Premier Han River, Novotel Ha Long Bay, Novotel Nha Trang, Novotel Saigon Centre, Novotel Phu Quoc Resort and Novotel Suites Hanoi.
