Hanoi Breaks Ground on New 6-Star Four Seasons Hotel

On January 7, Intimex Vietnam commenced the construction of the Four Seasons Hotel, a six-star accommodation overlooking Hanoi’s Hoan Kiem Lake.

Nguyen Thi Nga, chair of BRG Group, the parent firm of Intimex, told DTI the hotel project features 100 luxury rooms with a spectacular view of the famous lake.

According to VnExpress, the six-star hotel will be the first Four Seasons in Vietnam’s capital. Intimex will work with WATG Singapore and Vietnam’s IBSTAC on the hotel’s design and architecture. The news source also reports it has met with Vietnam Association of Architects to ensure the hotel’s style is suitable, as its location near the lakeshore stirred controversy upon its announcement last year.

Since then, the project has met opposition from experts because of its design, which they argue will not fit in with the surrounding heritage buildings and natural landscapes – not to mention Hanoi’s urban planning – once it’s complete.

No further information on the timeline of the hotel has been provided.
