Fanciful splendour in Saigon

Saigon has officially inaugurated its newest edition to the city in the form of the 286-room hotel, The Reverie Saigon. Boasting spectacular views of Ho Chi Minh and offering some of the cities most expansive rooms, this really is the most unabashedly opulent venue to have graced the city.

Situated in the heart of downtown Saigon, this extravagant urban hotel is seeks to redefine Vietnam’s luxury landscape. Herbert Laubichler-Pichler, the Austrian general manager whose roots in Vietnam go back to 2008, states that; “This hotel, however, is a transcendent gesture. We are fast-forwarding to the day when Saigon takes its rightful place as one of Asia’s leading cities, when upscale travellers will expect the very best attainable –not merely the very best in Vietnam, but the very best anywhere”.

The hotel has been seven years in the making but this has definitely been worthwhile as the hotel sets new bars in what design, culinary appeal and exclusive experience should be for the city.With four, ambitious dining venues who are aiming for Michelin success, three of the restaurants celebrate the culinary arts of France, China and Italy and a fourth, The Long @ Times Square, is an East Asian interpretation of the timeless sidewalk cafés of Europe.

Equally close attention has been paid to the design of the hotel and the rooms.Luxury rooms and suites take inspiration and bespoke creations directly from some of Italy’s leading design houses – including Colombostile, Giorgetti, Visionnaire, Poltrona Frau and Cassina. Thei collaborations on the collection have ensured that each room exhibits its own personality, from the classical and sophisticated, to the romantic with a whimsically Asian touch.

This really is a mammoth project that commands prime location in Saigon’s illustrious District 1 and is certainly not to be missed if in the city. With floor-to-ceiling windows that show off a dynamic city that’s evolving into one of Asia’s rising stars, replete with views of the storied Saigon River, and the reaches of the Mekong Delta, head to The Reverie Saigon for a taste of fanciful splendour in Saigon.
