The pioneering hotel brand completes the first step in bringing a vibrant approach to affordable luxury in Vietnam, with developer Indochina Kajima Development Limited (ICC-Kajima) concluding the purchase of two land plots.
The two sites have been formally handed over to owner-developers ICC-Kajima, the real estate development arm of Indochina Capital, America’s leading Vietnam-based property developer. Formed in joint venture with Kajima Corporation, Japan’s most prolific overseas real estate developer, the group’s core mandate is to develop innovative and high-quality projects throughout Vietnam. Wínk typifies the ICC-Kajima approach.
The Ho Chi Minh City site is located at 75 Nguyen Binh Khiem street in a rapidly gentrifying area within District 1, the city’s central business district. Scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2019, the first Ho Chi Minh City Wínk Hotels will consist of 226 rooms.
Demolition of the existing structure at the site is ongoing, and the development and hotel management teams are in process of refining the design and completing other critical pre-development items.
The Danang site is located at 178 Tran Phu street in the heart of the city’s business and entertainment district. The 243-room Wínk Hotels will feature a sky lobby and spectacular views of the Han River, Hai Van Pass, Son Tra Peninsula and East Sea. It is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2020.

“Indochina Capital has always been bullish on the hospitality market in Vietnam, as evidenced by The Nam Hai, Six Senses Con Dao and Hyatt Regency Danang,” Peter Ryder, CEO of Indochina Capital said. “The roll-out of Wínk Hotels will add to the group’s portfolio of past and present hospitality projects, introducing a novel hotel concept – Vietnam’s first international hotel brand – that will redefine traditional hospitality norms.”
