The Grand Marina Saigon Lake building officially opened at Ton Duc Thang street of District 1 on November 14. The inauguration of the first Marriott Residences in Vietnam was marked with a grand opening ceremony graced by the presence of executives from Masterise Homes and Marriott International, as well as representatives from the US Consulate and the American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam.

Lake is the first tower to be completed within Grand Marina Saigon a 10 hectare development by Masterise Homes, slated to host the world’s largest Marriott branded residential project.

The project features four Marriott and JW Marriott branded apartment towers, a high-end office and shopping centre, and riverside landscapes. Home previously to the shipyard of Ba Son with a history of more than 200 years, the complex occupies a commanding position in District 1.

The Ba Son site’s history inspired the architecture design for Lotus Park, a landscaped public space within Grand Marina Saigon. The architects have preserved the historical beauty of the shipyard and the prosperous flow of the city in the context of modern life so that Lotus Park can become the connection point between natural and artificial masterpieces. Grand Marina Saigon is also central to the city’s vibrant downtown, amidst the bustling cultural and commercial life of a modern city.

Ranging from one to three bedrooms, the Lake tower’s residences are equipped with the latest smart-home technology, and amenity spaces that span three floors. The ground floor hosts the property’s grand entrance with a lobby, a tranquility pool, and an accompanying children’s pool surrounded by tropical greenery and shaded cabanas.

Level 1 includes a Kids’ Club for playtime with contemporary learning zones, a room lounge, a library lounge, a boardroom, and an 11-seat theatre with a connecting refreshment bar for social gatherings. The recreational facilities extend to the rooftop on Level 46, with a shaded sky pool, jacuzzi, BBQ with dining area, fitness centre, and an enviable view of the river, the botanical gardens, and more.

The completion of the residences is the result of a unified effort among Masterise Homes and its extensive team of award-winning global design and construction partners including Atkins – a multinational architectural design company headquartered in London; Hirsch Bedner Associates – an American international hospitality design firm; and Mace – a global consultancy and construction firm also from London.

Every detail has undergone a meticulous review process to meet Marriott design brand standards. The residences were designed following the three pillars of Marriott modern design: Captivating Interior Architecture, Honest meets Polished, and Details that Elevate.

John Hearns, senior vice president of Global Residential Operations at Marriott International, said, “Our overarching mission is to inspire new, unwritten chapters in the lives of our owners, residents, and their esteemed guests. We are privileged and excited to introduce the Marriott Residences brand to the dynamic city of Ho Chi Minh and curating an enriching lifestyle experience for residence owners.”

The opening of the Marriott Residences also underscores the credibility and capability of Masterise Homes, establishing its position as a top real estate developer in Vietnam.

“The Lake tower is a testament to our commitment to bringing world-class excellence to our products and services, bringing the concept of branded residences into a reality with exceptional spaces and luxurious amenities,” said Mahdi Samhouri, deputy head of Design as well as deputy head of Project Development at Masterise Homes.

“With these residences, Masterise Homes has not only raised the bar in real estate development but also created a new benchmark for luxury urban living. We are immensely proud to have played a pivotal role in shaping the future of Vietnam’s real estate landscape,” he added.

Following the opening of Lake, the next phase will be the opening of Lotus Park, followed by the topping out ceremony of Lagoon and Cove, both a JW Marriott branded residence; and Sea, which boasts dual-branded Marriott and JW Marriott residences.
