MovenpickGuests at the Movenpick Hotel Saigon may not be aware of it, but a massive renovation is in progress that will modernize and revivify the entire facility. Movenpick Hotels & Resorts, the Swiss hotel group, assumed management of the 15-year-old, 7-storey, 251-room property last July.

The renovation project, which includes all guestrooms and public areas, will cost USD $20-$25 million and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2010. Construction is being phased to include two guestroom floors at a time, with the first being ready for occupancy by the end of this year.

The design concept is to retain the existing French colonial features, which add a residential scale and feel to the hotel,” explained Dominik Stamm, general manager at the Movenpick Saigon.
