Situated along Danang’s legendary My Khe beachfront on Vo Nguyen Giap Street, Nobu is set to command the city’s skyline with an iconic 43-story tower, the tallest building in the city, and will offer a world-class dining and entertainment destination with some of the most spectacular views anywhere in the region. The hotel will also offer 200 guest rooms, including 18 luxurious suites, expansive meeting and event space ideally suited for weddings and important social events, and a state-of-the-art wellness and fitness facility. In addition, there will be 271 stylish residential units offering one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations as well as two spectacular, skyline penthouse units, adding to Nobu Hospitality’s growing portfolio of private residences.
The Nobu destination will uniquely combine modern, forward-thinking design touches, Nobu’s signature elegance and minimalism and the traditions of Japanese design. Situated below the hotel and residences, the Danang City Centre podium will offer high-end retail shopping, an upscale Chinese restaurant, a modern Vietnamese fine-dining restaurant, and an American steakhouse. A cocktail bar and lounge will be positioned on the rooftop of the building, offering stunning views for sunset drinks and after-hours entertainment in Danang.
