November 15, 2019
November 15, 2019, HCMC – Indochina Kajima Development Limited (Indochina Kajima), a joint-venture between Indochina Capital, a leading real estate developer in Vietnam and Kajima Corporation, one of Japan’s largest general contractors and real estate developers, announces the start of construction for the second Wínk Hotel in the core central business district of Danang and the topping out of the first Wínk Hotel – Wínk Saigon Center Hotel.
Located on one of Danang’s most active streets, Wínk Hotel 178 Tran Phu marks the brand’s breakthrough in Central Vietnam. The 244-room Wínk Hotel brings an innovative product to the hospitality market, characterized by its tasteful design, multifunctional common spaces, state-of-the-art technology and a new take on the traditional business center – a co-working space. The groundbreaking ceremony for Wínk 178 Tran Phu was held on November 2, 2019.
Wínk Saigon Center Hotel, comprising of 237 rooms, rises at 75 Nguyen Binh Khiem, District 1, nestled in HCMC’s central business district. Set to open in Q3 2020, Wínk Saigon Center Hotel’s topping out marks the building reaching its maximum height and the transition to interior fit-out. The hotel’s design seeks to emulate the brand’s signature characteristics of modernity, minimalism and efficiency, all of which are underpinned with Vietnamese values.
“This marks yet another milestone for us in delivering the first international standard hospitality brand to Vietnam and the region,” notes Peter Ryder, CEO of Indochina Capital and Chairman of Indochina Kajima. “Wínk Hotels is part of Indochina Kajima’s mandate to creatively mold the real estate industry in Vietnam. After Wínk Saigon Center Hotel and Wínk Hotel 178 Tran Phu, Danang, we will look to provide this elevated hotel experience in Hanoi, as well as many emerging secondary cities such as Can Tho, Tuy Hoa, Hai Phong, and Vung Tau. Indochina Capital has always pushed the boundaries for creativity, and we are excited and committed to developing more high-quality and innovative projects across Vietnam.”
Designed by AW2, a Paris-based architecture company who worked with Indochina Capital in the development of Four Seasons The Nam Hai and Six Senses Con Dao, Wínk aims to redefine hospitality norms in the region by delivering the essential elements of a hotel in a sleek and streamlined style while delivering high-quality service. The hotel will be operated by Indochina Vanguard Hotels, a joint venture between Indochina Capital, Kajima Corporation and Vanguard Hotels.
“I am extremely excited to announce these achievements for the first two Wínk Hotel projects in Vietnam. We aim to disrupt the hospitality industry by introducing a hotel product that will be the first of its kind in this incredible country. We want to bring to life a Vietnamese brand that is celebrated by the entire Vietnamese population, fusing old and new Vietnam into a tantalizing hospitality experience that will be sure to excite the young-at-heart travelers from Vietnam and around the world,” shares Michael Piro, the CEO of Wínk Hotels and COO of Indochina Capital. “Wínk will strive to ensure guests have a vivid and lasting impression of Vietnam.”
