As Vietnam’s first homegrown hospitality group, Wínk Hotels is created to deliver affordable luxury for the dynamic Indochine 2.0 generation, appealing to their fast-paced lifestyle and enterprising mindset.

Centrally located in Ho Chi Minh City’s vibrant Da Kao ward within District 1, the property features 237 space-efficient rooms that personify the brand’s contemporary ethos of chic and creative design, deep functionality, and traditional Vietnamese values.

“The opening of Wínk Hotel Saigon Centre is a significant milestone in Vietnam’s hospitality landscape. It marks the start of a new lifestyle movement, a community where everyone is welcome and connected,” said Michael Piro, CEO of Wínk Hotels.

On behalf of the developer and owner, Indochina Kajima and the operator, Indochina Vanguard, Peter Ryder, Indochina Capital’s CEO, stated that Wínk Hotels is a brand made in Vietnam and for Vietnam.

“Here we are today, launching this amazing brand and beautiful hotel. We have created something new, something dazzling, something fun, something colourful, and something essentially Vietnam,” said Ryder.

Meanwhile, Piro added that upwardly-mobile Vietnamese entrepreneurs, creatives, explorers, and the young-at-heart will all appreciate this brand that is distinctively local and authentic.

“From today, every traveller can enjoy luxurious sleep experiences and intuitive services from our team of local Wínk Guides without the 5-star hotel price tag,” Piro said.

For the first time in Vietnam’s hospitality industry, Wínk Hotel Saigon Centre will pioneer the STAY24 programme, which guarantees a 24-hour guest stay regardless of check-in time.
