The Reverie Saigon is a luxury hotel renowned for its beautiful interior designs. The 12 types of magnificently furnished accommodation are offered as 62 suites and 224 luxury rooms and are crafted to perfection.
Although just a year and a half old, the Reverie has already accrued plenty of international distinction. Town & Country Magazine has named it one of the best hotels in the world, and it’s made a notable appearance on Condé Nast’s “Hot List”.
The highest hotel in the city, the rooms and suites start from the 27th floor with beautiful panoramic views of the central business district and the winding Saigon River, through floor-to-ceiling windows.
Luxury, elegance and just a touch of decadence make up the ambience at this hotel. The Reverie really lives up to its name: when you walk into a hotel room here, it’s as if walking into a dream. It’s difficult to accurately depict the design of these rooms, however, because each room is slightly different.
Depending on the tastes of each guest, a particular style of room is chosen that will most closely fit that client’s needs. And, the best part: if a guest sees a chair or furniture they can’t live without, there’s a good chance that the brand and piece is located downstairs in the shopping center.
The dining options at The Reverie can’t be compared with any other hotel in the city. Indeed, the five acclaimed restaurants found here are one of the key attractions of this hotel. The main draw of these restaurants is, without a doubt, the authenticity. Five Italian chefs work in-house to deliver the best food their country has to offer, while a team of Chinese chefs work in the Royal Pavilion to do the same. These restaurants aren’t just bonuses for travellers – they’re destinations in their own right.
The Reverie’s internationally recognised spa gives guests extraordinary care in a refined and elegant setting. With plush carpets in the lobby, marble floors and walls in the changing rooms and beautiful wood panelling throughout, this two-storey health centre will certainly make every guest feel pampered.
Besides traditional salon services, guests can enjoy a body scrub, body wrap, a variety of different massages, nail care and much more.
