Wink Hotels is a new Vietnamese hospitality brand emerging in Indochina that takes a bold approach to affordable luxury in the region.

The brand caters to modern, aspirational travellers, offering high-quality experiences that are grounded in the local destination.

Wink Hotels opened its first hotel, Wink Hotel Saigon Centre, in March 2021.

At Wink out goes the traditional lobby. Instead, the Wink Space is open with no reception desk but 24-hour services such as a bar and a Grab & Go area.

The spacious common area is the perfect place to connect, collaborate, and chill. It’s comfortable. It’s multifunctional. It’s everything guests want in a neighbourhood hangout. Award-winning mixology and local ingredients. All served to a backdrop of the pan-Asian playlist.

Guests can check-in in an instant with Wink’s automated check-in pods or ask the in-the-know front-of-house Wink Guide team to help.

The team is available 24/7 both IRL and online via Zalo and Whatsapp to answer inquiries or to help guests discover the best insider spots in the city, from buzzing beer clubs to hip cocktail bars.

Each of Wink Hotel Saigon Centre’s 237 rooms is space-smart and chic, fine-tuned for maximum comfort. Guests can start with intuitive in-room controls, a seductive Wink mattress, and power showers, as well as slide into high-quality linens and pillows by Catherine Denoual, and there are locally sourced amenities, an AC, a smart TV, in-room telephone, and safe.

Each room features bold Wink accents, such as the floor-to-ceiling windows and a black-out blind featuring a drawing by local artist Richie Fawcett of the area surrounding the hotel.

Wink also offers its groundbreaking STAY24 programme, which guarantees guests a full 24-hour stay regardless of check-in time.

Wink Hotel Saigon Centre was the first hotel in Vietnam to receive the LEED Gold Version 4 certificate for sustainability thanks to initiatives in location and transportation, water efficiency, and its energy scheme, atmosphere, and innovations.

Each floor features a vending machine, at which guests pay with their topped-up room card, helping Wink to reduce the use of single-use plastics in its room amenities.

Hotel items are provided by partners PLASTICPeople who give a second life to plastic waste. Automated check-ins and outs allow the hotel to reduce the use of paper receipts.

Wink has also partnered with coworking space pioneers Toong. Out goes the stuffy business centre and in comes a coworking space at Wink Hotel Saigon Centre.

Guests can hot desk for free in the in-house Toong or at any Toong citywide. Plus there are bookable meeting rooms and other business services. Guests can also sign-up for Wink’s tier-less Life In A Wink! programme.

At Wink, everyone is a VIP, where guests enjoy fast redemption of free nights, and special benefits from local partners who promise preferential bookings, special discounts and offers, and invitations to events, helping guests to plug into Wink’s community, which Wink Hotel Saigon Centre integrates into the hotel experience through events such as Poppin’ Corks wine festival, its Endless Summer Surf Party, and a monthly Block Party hosted by Wink’s talented Guides team.

This month’s Block Party is Pride-themed and called Born This Way, featuring DJs, special performances, a unique fashion showcase, draft beer, and special signature cocktails.
