Trust in our brand combined with a proven operating system, our global distribution network, and our application of professional asset management practices accelerate a hotel's profitability and standing in the marketplace," says Norbert Vas, VP of Business Development for Archipelago International.

Archipelago's newly formed Vietnam entity, Archipelago Indochina, which was formed with its partnership with specialist hotel & resort management and hospitality consultancy company Optimum Hospitality, will manage the hotel. The hotel group aims to expand the ASTON portfolio throughout Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
