While InterContinental Saigon is notorious for the free-flowing champagne at Market 39’s Sunday brunch and, of course, best known as a hotel of the highest international standards, there’s much more to it than that. InterContinental Residences Saigon has been honoured as Vietnam’s Leading Hotel Residences 2017 by the prestigious World Travel Awards, offers residents some of the most exquisite and contemporary apartment spaces in Ho Chi Minh City, at a prime location in the heart of the major business and cultural area, District 1.
The 31-floor residential tower is part of M Plaza Saigon building, one of the city’s top integrated complexes housing renowned stores, restaurants, bars, the InterContinental hotel and its residences. What InterContinental Residences Saigon is most proud of is the exclusive “Live, Work, Entertain” lifestyle concept that they offer to their high-class tenants. This is a place to settle, a place to inspire and a place to enjoy life all at the same time.
Designed to Please
The generous, fully-furnished apartments come in different sizes, ranging from 78 m2 to 204 m2, and it’s all your choice. There are 260 residences in three configurations – one, two and three-bedroom apartments – and they boast a variety of layouts, with the larger three-bedroom residences located on top, from the 23rd to 31st floors. As one would imagine, this creates stunning panoramic views of the city.
The uncluttered and open-plan design with neutral tones that InterContinental Residences Saigon displays creates a warm, chic and welcoming environment for residents. These 5-star surroundings attract all kinds of tenants, such as families, business travellers and local expats.
The Residences are located right in the city centre, only minutes away from famous landmarks like the Notre Dame Cathedral, Ho Chi Minh City’s Central Post Office, the Reunification Palace and the City Hall. This gives you all the options to enjoy the city’s unique culinary and nightlife options. Restaurants, coffee shops, bars and clubs are all just a hop away.
But InterContinental Residences Saigon gives you the choice: rather than taking advantage of the premier location, you might wish for a selection of deluxe in-house facilities and venues. And why leave if the best is right here?
Let’s start with the apartments. The exclusive amenities of the InterContinental Residences include a private balcony, a dining room, a living room, modern bathrooms, the latest audio-visual equipment, broadband internet connection, a fully equipped kitchen (stove, microwave, washer/dryer, etc.) and multiple individually controlled air conditioning units. Why go to movies if your in-home theatre is always open for a private show?
Or how about going out and staying in at the same time? We’ve talked about Market 39, where regular buffets will make sure you indulge in a broad range of appetising dishes. YuChu Chinese Restaurant spoils you with a whole different cuisine: dim sum and Peking duck make for a palatable Far Eastern eating experience, and one of the finest in town.
Residents can also enjoy a wide range of additional facilities that enhance their quality of life at InterContinental Residences Saigon, such as a 24-hour health and fitness centre with steam room and sauna, a spa, a deluxe residents’ lounge, a playroom for the kids and a fully-furnished boardroom for family gatherings.
The large outdoor swimming pool is located on the third floor and comes with a designated kids area. The business centre on the second floor provides residents with a sleek working space out of the privacy of their home. In order to maintain the world-class services, the residence facilities are frequently renovated. One can tell that InterCon strives to make this a place ideal for people enjoying every sort of lifestyle.
InterContinental is unarguably one of the key players in the hospitality sector worldwide. Tenants at InterContinental Residences Saigon benefit greatly from the high standards of the hotel, as they are spoiled with the exceptional services of a prestigious international luxury brand.
The hotel standards are all covered: Laundry and dry-cleaning service? Yep. Parking service? Sure. Apartment service? Any time. Tour service? Of course. Airport transfer? You know the answer. The high-class service team is available 24/7, an amenity not many living spaces can offer.
Safety standards are as high as it gets. InterContinental Residences Saigon has its own security department working 24 hours, as well as the latest fire and life safety systems.
What People Say
Many guests use the luxury apartments for a short-term stay and most point out the exceptional facilities of the residences and the high quality of life at the spacious apartment options. The occasional non-excellent review mentions a lower standard of service at the residences compared to the hotel, but there’s a clear agreement about the extremely comfortable beds.
The bottom line is: All that glitters is not 5-star. InterContinental Residences Saigon is, broadening world-class hospitality standards to a deluxe living space.
