IHG Hotels & Resorts plans to double its portfolio in Vietnam by 2028. But first, it’s debuting 2 luxury brands in the country, Hotel Indigo, and Vignette Collection, and opening several new InterContinental resorts.

Here’s what you need to know about IHG’s expansion in Vietnam.

IHG Sets Sight on Vietnam With New Hotels

Hotel Indigo Saigon The City will have 150 guest rooms and suites and is the brand’s debut in Vietnam. Amenities will include a rooftop pool, a gym, and a restaurant. The hotel will open on July 1, 2024.

IHG will also open a Vignette Collection in Hoi An, the brand’s first in Vietnam. While we don’t have many details about this hotel, it will be near the UNESCO Heritage Site in historic Hoi An.

InterContinental Halong Bay Resort, IHG’s first property in the region, will open in 2025.

Finally, the Holiday Inn Resort Halong Bay will open in 2026, and the InterContinental Thanh Xuan Valley will open “within the next few years.”

“Our growth in Vietnam is buoyed by a positive outlook for travel in the country, where domestic demand remains strong and international demand continues to grow, especially within Asia thanks to its growing middle class and expanding GDP,” said Paul Cunningham, senior director of operations for Southeast Asia and Korea at IHG.

Additionally, Cunningham noted new routes to Vietnam from major cities, such as New Delhi (DEL), Manila (MNL), Sydney (SYD), and Munich (MUC), which will increase demand for travel to the country.

IHG says it plans to more than double its Vietnam offerings by 2028. Currently, IHG has 18 properties throughout the country across the following brands: Six Senses, Regent Hotels & Resorts, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, voco, and Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts.

Bottom Line:

IHG is increasing its footprint in Vietnam with the addition of 26 hotels over the next 4 years. Two new brands, Hotel Indigo and Vignette Collection, will also be introduced to the country, starting with Hotel Indigo Saigon The City this summer.

Booking IHG Hotels in Vietnam

While IHG doesn’t have the largest presence in Vietnam (yet), some of the chain’s most luxurious hotels are located there.

For instance, the 5-star Six Senses Con Dao (which starts at $1,100 per night this fall) is one of the best resorts in Vietnam. With just 50 villas — all with private infinity pools — plus spa treatments and fine dining, you’ll be able to experience Vietnam’s warm hospitality at a secluded beachfront resort.

The InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is more affordable but no less luxurious. Its on-site restaurant is led by a 3-star Michelin chef, with rooms and suites offering panoramic ocean views. Rates start at around $400 or 78,000 IHG One Rewards points this fall.

It is pretty easy to earn IHG points. IHG offers 3 co-branded credit cards that come with large welcome bonuses, and you can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards or Bilt Rewards points to IHG One Rewards at a 1:1 ratio.

Other ways to quickly earn IHG points include booking restaurants through the IHG One Rewards Dining program, hosting a meeting or event, or purchasing points.

Final Thoughts

Vietnam is quickly becoming a major tourism destination, and IHG was smart to announce a major expansion of 26 hotels by 2028. This includes the introduction of 2 new brands to the country — Hotel Indigo and Vignette Collection

With several IHG hotels scheduled to open this year and more coming throughout the next few years, earning and redeeming points will be easier than ever.
