Next Story Group enters Vietnam with Kafnu Brand
July 13, 2019

International hospitality company, Next Story Group, has opened its latest Kafnu venue in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

The fifth Kafnu property to open globally since the brand's debut in Hong Kong in late 2017, Kafnu Ho Chi Minh City is an eight-storey building located in Saigon Pearl, the heart of one of Asia's top emerging markets.

Members enjoy round the clock access and their productivity is assured with a range of work spaces including hot desks and private offices, high-speed internet, a soundproof phone booth, and five meeting rooms with video conferencing capabilities.

Spanning 2,440 metre², Kafnu Ho Chi Minh City also has a multi-screened 180 metre² event space where members can host product launches, workshops, and other events for up to 150 guests. There are also eight en-suite hotel rooms that ensure members from out of town get a good night's rest and wake up to views of the city skyline.

Members can also keep fit at the Virtual Fitness Studio which offers over 1,500 classes, socialise at Habitat Cocktail Bar, and enjoy modern Asian cuisine at Soy Restaurant.

Chris Edwards, General Manager of Kafnu Ho Chi Minh City, stated “we are excited to be part of Vietnam's growth story.

"We aim to be a catalyst for success to the entrepreneurs and creative trailblazers who choose to build their enterprises, brands and personal networks in the vibrant economic hub of Ho Chi Minh City. To support their endeavours, we are cultivating a warm, welcoming community of like-minded change-makers, delivering targeted programming, and providing unique opportunities for discovery, connection, and growth."

Kafnu Ho Chi Minh City is located minutes from District 1 and 2, and a 30-minute drive from Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Vietnam's largest airport.

Named after a hamlet, Himachal Pradesh, in northern India where climbers regroup before summiting the Himalayan peak, the Kafnu brand that offers the best of a shared work space, boutique hotel and social community. Strategically-located and designed to foster co-creation, co-exploration and co-innovation, Kafnu aims to elevate the individual and collective potential of its members, who include creators and business owners, and to support them in their journey to success by providing the ideal environment for them to work, rest and socialise.

Next Story Group currently owns, manages and franchises 37 hotels and resorts in Australia, Laos and Thailand, bearing its brands including Next Hotels, Sage Hotels and LinQ Hotels.

It also manages five Kafnu spaces, in Ho Chi Minh City; Sydney, Australia; Bengaluru, India; Taipei and Hong Kong.
