InterContinental to Launch First Luxury Hotel in Laos

InterContinental to Launch First Luxury Hotel in Laos
Built by Lao International Development, the hotel will form part of the new World Trade Centre complex – a mixed-use development that will include a large retail mall, medical centre, conference centre, office tower and residential towers.

“Laos is currently one of the region's fastest growing nations with close to five million international arrivals each year and future infrastructural and industrial developments underway to continue boosting economic growth and attract foreign investment,” explained Leanne Harwood, IHG's vice president of operations for Southeast Asia & Korea. “It's a great time to be bringing the InterContinental brand into the country to tap on this potential.

Among its 400+ rooms, InterContinental Vientiane will feature a range of club rooms and suites which provide access to the hotel's club lounge. Other facilities will include several F&B outlets, a swimming pool, spa and fitness centre.

Across Southeast Asia, IHG now operates 14 InterContinental hotels and resorts, with 10 more due to open in the next five years. There are several international hotel brands currently present in Vientiane, including ibis, Best Western and Crowne Plaza, but InterContinental will be one of the first international luxury brands to enter the city.
