Hilton expands Vietnamese portfolio

Hilton Worldwide has announced that Hilton Da Nang Hotel will open in April 2018, becoming the first five-star property in Vietnam’s third largest city.

Situated on Bach Dang Street, which runs along the Han River with views across the city, the 211-key development looks towards the hills of the Son Tra peninsular and the beaches between Da Nang and Hoi An.

Noor, an architecture and design firm with studios in Vietnam and Athens, were tasked with the hotel’s guestrooms, lobby, café, brasserie and rooftop dining bar, as well as the ballroom, pool and gym area, meeting rooms and executive lounge.

The design was inspired by local culture, with strong architectural references to nearby Hoi An. Connecting the history and culture of the location to the hotel, Noor worked with the natural colour palette found throughout the region and sourced materials including local sandstone, ceramic wall tiles, marble, walnut wood and bronze.

Bespoke furniture and lighting from Stellar Works, Wendelbo, Manutti, Sonite and Kettal were also incorporated into the hotel’s design scheme through interspersed pieces.
