Danang gains more hotels

Danang tourism officials say the city’s increase in hotel rooms should not cause rates to fall as there are plans to draw more tourists and increase airline services.

Danang will have an additional 1,800 new hotel rooms this year, which is the biggest growth seen in the country’s hotel industry in decades.

In 2010, the city had 6,089 hotel rooms and the figure grew to 10,570 rooms in 326 hotels by late 2012. Another 5,000 room will open by 2015.

Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism director, Ngo Quang Vinh, told the local media, late last week, that a rapid growth in hotels could bring an imbalance between supply and demand but so far it had not been reflected in hotel balance sheets.

“Last year, the average room occupancy reached 63% to 65% with hotels of three-to five-star standards posting higher occupancy.”

The city is planning special events such as a firework performance and an international marathon. It also hopes to build a new cable car system at Ba Na Hills and introduce new air services to draw more tourists.
“Also, the city will gain a new airline service from Hong Kong, 28 March and from Bangkok in May,” the director explained. He gave no details of the Bangkok service, but THAI Smile showed some interest in Danang, although there have been no further statements from the airline on the outcome of tis route studies.
Danang is linked to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City by at least 30 domestic daily flights operated by Vietnam Airlines, VietJetAir and Jetstar Pacific.

In 2012, the city attracted 631,000 international tourists while overall arrivals reached 2.7 million increasing 12% over 2011.
