Oakwood Residence Hanoi and Citadines Bayfront Nha Trang are two serviced apartment facilities honored at International Travel Awards 2022 in Asia.
Oakwood Residence Hanoi in Dang Thai Mai street, Tay Ho district, Hanoi recently received the Best Serviced Apartment title.
This is the first project in the serviced apartment segment of Van Phu-Invest Investment JSC, a major real estate developer in Vietnam, with international standards from design to service. It is operated by Oakwood Residence, a subsidiary of Singapore's Mapletree Investments Group.
Located 400 meters from the city's iconic West Lake, all apartments at Oakwook Residence Hanoi are designed to receive natural light and fresh air from a large balcony overlooking the beautiful lake landscape.

This beachfront aparthotel features an on-site restaurant, an outdoor pool and sun terrace. Tourists can enjoy free wifi access in all areas.
It is the first Citadines project in Vietnam of Singapore's The Ascott Limited (Ascott), one of the world's leading international serviced apartment owners and operators. Citadines is Ascott's fastest growing global brand that caters to independent travelers who want service flexibility.
