Go Chic in Ho Chi Minh City at the Reverie Saigon
We’re off to Vietnam today, exploring a new destination (and a new suite, naturally), in Ho Chi Minh City! The Reverie Saigon is located in the fabulous Times Square building in the heart of the city, and is the most extravagant hotel around! Step inside the Designer Suite by Visionnaire and you’ll be whisked into the cover spread from a homes magazine. The accommodation is one of a collection of individually designed suites at the Reverie Saigon, one the finest luxury hotels in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The first thing you’ll notice is the colour palette: cream and platinum has an instant calming effect, inviting you to flop down on the smooth leather sofa in the large living and dining area.
This is a suite that oozes style: it cleverly blends contemporary and classic, where traditional artisanal skills meet cutting edge design to evoke a living space reminiscent of glamorous Italian living. As you relax on the super-soft leather sofa, you’ll notice the sleek mirrored console, shining lacquered cabinets, shimmering chandeliers and ostrich skin-clad furniture in the living space around you. You can’t fail to spot the large dining table embellished with Calacatta marble at the back of the room too, which can seat up to six. With your own private butler as part of the suite, plus a 24-hour in-room dining service, what better way to spend an evening in than dining with friends and family in this living space?
The style continues in the master bedroom, where a decadent scalloped leather headboard frames a super kingsize bed, and a statement chandelier adorned with Swarovski crystals and swooping metal chain links dominates the room overhead. But it’s not all for show, you’re treated to all the home-from-home comforts you could possibly need in the bedroom: plump pillows and 600-thread count bed linens promise the very best night’s sleep, and a spacious walk-through closet, powder room, pillow menu, TV, telephone, Nespresso machine and complimentary wifi and mini bar provide all the amenities you’ll need (though don’t forget the suite comes with a private butler should you find you’re missing a toothbrush or two).
Step into the bathroom and you’re in for a treat, where colourful mosaic-clad walls and flooring provide an artistic backdrop to the marble-clad deep-soak bathtub, powerful rain shower and double wash basins. And not forgetting the little luxuries we all love in a hotel – you’ll find the softest towels and toiletries by Acqua di Parma and Hermès so you can cleanse, moisturise, relax and unwind to your heart’s content.
Location-wise, the Reverie Saigon is slap-bang in the heart of District 1 in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City, and with floor-to-ceiling windows in the suite, you’re promised some of the best views of the city. Energetic and buzzing 24/7, HCMC is one of Vietnam’s liveliest cities and a great place to explore, with a fascinating history of French and Vietnamese rule, plus a vibrant culture and arts scene. You get to enjoy the best of both worlds with a stay at the Reverie Saigon: embrace the buzz of the city, then head back to your suite to relax and unwind. City breaks don’t get much better.
