A wholly-owned subsidiary of Mapletree Investments held an official opening ceremony for Oakwood Residence Hanoi on October 10, marking the brand’s entry into Vietnam’s capital.
Located in a prime spot for both business and leisure travelers alike, Oakwood Residence Hanoi is in an upscale residential neighborhood in Tay Ho district that offers a sanctuary away from the city’s hustle and bustle. Aside from historic sites and a plethora of stylish dining options and watering holes by scenic West Lake, Tay Ho’s charm also makes it popular among executives on short-term assignments.
A car-ride away, guests can also easily access Ba Dinh district – home to government offices, embassies, as well as some of the city’s best co-working spaces; and Hoan Kiem district – Hanoi’s central business district and main tourist area. Relocating families will also delight in their proximity to Ciputra International City where a number of international schools are located.
Offering home comforts with the conveniences of a hotel, guests can select from 262 elegantly appointed and fully furnished studios, one-, two-, three-bedroom apartments, and penthouses. Each unit comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, high-speed internet, and hotel amenities.
Guests can also expect an extensive suite of services including round-the-clock guest relations and security, housekeeping services, laundry and dry cleaning services, shuttle bus services, as well as activity programmes to assist guests to assimilate into their new environment and community.
The ideal residence for families seeking short to long stays, Oakwood Residence Hanoi also offers a wide range of facilities catering to multi-generation families including a modern fusion restaurant, a residents’ lounge, restaurant and bar, fitness centre, children’s play area, as well as the city’s very first all-season infinity pool fitted with a retractable glass roof.
“Oakwood Residence Hanoi is testament to our commitment to grow Oakwood’s presence in the country,” said Mr. Dean Schreiber, interim CEO of Oakwood and Managing Director of Oakwood Asia Pacific. “Two years in the works, the team at Oakwood has been gearing up for this day, when we officially introduce Oakwood to the capital.”
Oakwood Residence Hanoi will be the brand’s third serviced residence in the country following the debut of Oakwood Apartments Ho Chi Minh City in December 2016 in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 3 and subsequent launch of Mapletree-owned Oakwood Residence Saigon in District 7 in April 2018.
“Oakwood Residence Hanoi is designed for those who value a residence that speaks to the heart, offering guests a sense of belonging in the bustling city,” shares Humayoon Shaikhzadeh, general manager of Oakwood Residence Hanoi. “Heartfelt service is at the centre of what we do, and we aim to make a difference for our guests when they stay with us.”
