ACCORHOTELS has unveiled four hotels in southeast Asia in the month of April alone, two of which are in Thailand, one in Vietnam, and the other in Laos.
Sofitel Hua Hin opened its doors this month, a seaside retreat with all the charms of a fishing village. The resort combines AccorHotels’ trademark French elegance with naturally aged woods that blend with the surrounding nature.
The resort benefits from the creative touch of Polpat Asavaprapha, a renowned fashion designer. The designer’s influence is peppered throughout the resort, especially in its artwork and uniforms.
Also open in Thailand is Veranda Resort Pattaya from the MGallery by Sofitel Collection. The boutique hotel is located on Na Jomtien beach and prides itself on a modern life-by-the-sea theme.
The hotel’s ocean front rooms come with a sea view bathtub facing the sea. Meanwhile, the free-form pool is equipped with an artificial beach, water slider, sand pit, bubble jets and water curtain features.
In Vietnam, AccorHotels’ new Pullman outlet in Vung Tau marks the town’s first five-star international resort.
Business travelers can make use of the hotel’s 14 meeting rooms, the largest of them having a capacity of 1830. The hotel is said to have the largest meeting facilities in Southern Viernam.
In Laos, a new Sofitel outlet has started operating in Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hotel is located in a restored lot of the century-old former governor’s mansion.
The resort emphasises art and doubles as a gallery, housing a range of Indochinese pieces. The hotel also holds a library that carries one of Luang Prabang’s largest collection of books.
