Hotel Royal Hoi An joins the MGallery collection of memorable hotels in Vietnam

Hotel Royal Hoi An, a member of the MGallery Collection, has opened as Accor’s first upscale property in the ancient port city of Hoi An, celebrating a romantic journey at a crossroads of cultures.

Accor, the largest operator of international hotels in Asia-Pacific and Vietnam, has announced the opening of Hotel Royal Hoi An, the latest addition to the MGallery Collection in Vietnam. Standing majestically on the banks of the picturesque Thu Bon River, the upscale property has taken pride of place in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Hoi An in Central Vietnam. The hotel is blessed with the wonderful vista of the low-rise cityscape, once a cultural crossroads and a key maritime port that still retains much of its old-world charm. Only 35 kilometers from Danang City, Hotel Royal Hoi An is a 25-minute drive from Danang International Airport.

“We are delighted to add Hotel Royal Hoi An to Accor’s MGallery Collection of memorable hotels,” said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of Accor Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and the Philippines, adding: “This hotel combines the excellence of its services and individual attention with its historical roots, making every stay a memorable experience. This is an ideal accommodation for upscale travelers who enjoy staying in a hotel with a unique story and a distinguished concept.”

MGallery is a collection of unique hotels selected on the basis of their individual personality and characteristics. MGallery hotels are categorized under three key themes – Signature, Heritage and Serenity. Stressing Hoi An’s historical roots as an ancient town and its serene location on the banks of the Thu Bon River, Hotel Royal Hoi An is regarded as one of MGallery’s “Heritage” hotels, itself the fourth MGallery hotel in Vietnam.

Tangi Le Grand, Hotel Royal Hoi An’s General Manager said, “The theme of Hotel Royal Hoi An is wrapped around the 16th century romantic legend between the Japanese merchant Sotaro Araki and Vietnamese princess Ngoc Hoa who fell in love and married before moving back together to Nagasaki, Japan. The princess – still well loved and admired by the people of Nagasaki these days – changed her name to Wa Ka Ku, but she’s also known by her Japanese nickname “Anio-san.” To celebrate this “romantic journey at the crossroads of cultures,” the hotel’s theme, names of room types and F&B outlets are based on this timeless story of true love.”

Hotel Royal Hoi An is essentially a true reflection of Hoi An (literally “peaceful meeting place”), incorporating the values of historical tranquility and memorable hospitality into its grand design as a destination where its sophisticated guests – from honeymooners to family and leisure travelers – come to meet, rest and relax amid its beautiful surroundings. The hotel’s architecture draws upon ancient Vietnamese and Japanese influences in a dramatic display of a quasi-European style with a contemporary twist.

The hotel’s 119 guestrooms induce total relaxation as a serene haven of peace and tranquility, each exhibiting an antiquated yet romantic touch. The rooms are adorned with dark wood and handcrafted furnishings and fixtures that bring the city’s storied past back to life. On the balcony, guests will be captivated by a magnificent view of the river that meanders leisurely and the age-old communities that thrive along its banks. Room types are named as follows: Sotaro Suites on the top floor facing east to Japan, Anio Suites on the top floor facing west to Vietnam, and two Deluxe Suites, yasu and Tau. “Yasu” is Sotaro and Ani-o’s daughter while “Tau” means “boat” in Vietnamese.

Hotel Royal Hoi An celebrates decadent dining through its several top-notch food and beverage venues. At Faifo Café, guests are treated to a full breakfast buffet and delectable a la carte dishes of Asian, American and European cuisine for lunch and dinner. The chef at its Japanese-food outlet Wa Ka Ku exhibits his prowess in the fine art of sushi and yakitori with sumptuous dishes using the finest local ingredients. Classic cocktails, chic design and a relaxed vibe are the order of the day at the poolside River Bar with cool lounge sounds filling the air.

Hotel Royal Hoi An’s opulent Thu Bon Ballroom is the perfect meeting and event venue that can ensconce medium to large groups of up to 250 guests. The Woosha spa provides a superb royal spa experience to rejuvenate and revitalize body and mind while the Royal Fitness is equipped with state-of-the-art fitness equipment complete with the marvelous views of the Thu Bon River.

Historically known as “Phai Pho or Faifo,” Hoi An grew from a small port town to become a major trading port from the 16th to 18th centuries when many Chines Japanese, Dutch and Indians merchants came to set up shop and made the town their home. Hoi An is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to well- preserved historical buildings displaying a fusion of local and foreign architectural styles. Hoi An is a 25-minute drive from Danang International Airport while Danang is an hour’s flight from Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City.
