Le Méridien Saigon
A hotel can be much more than just a place to sleep. It can also be an icon introducing visitors to the colours and visual artistry of a city. Integrating local motifs into its interior design, all while maintaining its international brand and ensuring that guests get the best service available.
Le Meridien Saigon, a 5-Star, 343-room Starwood property built in 2015 and located along Ton Duc Thang Street in Saigon’s District 1 is targeted to the curious explorer with a taste for new cultures and experiences and is the perfect example of how this blend can be executed seamlessly.
The hotel is located along the bank of the Saigon river, a beautiful view that can be enjoyed in the majority of guest rooms. Once you enter the lobby, you’ll be struck by the visual spectacle around you. Plush sofas, seats of varying sizes, shapes and colours are scattered throughout, and the floors and walls are filled with curvilinear patterns, an ode to the nearby Saigon River.
Featuring a nice mix of bold colours like red and yellow with neutral and darker earth tones, the overall ambience of the lobby itself invokes a sense of curiosity, drawing you in to explore even further.
Checking in is a breeze, as not only do you get prompt, responsive service from the staff — you also get it with a smile throughout. The level of professionalism evident here will comfort even the most demanding traveller.
The real fun begins when you’ve gotten your keycard. As you make your way towards the lifts, you’ll walk past Latitude 10, a dining space that’s coffeehouse by day and cocktail lounge by night. With soft lighting and plush seating, it’s the perfect place to sit with your laptop and some Illy Coffee to get some work done during the day (if you have to). By night, you can come here to have a nice sip of wine and enjoy a good conversation.
If you’re waiting for the elevators, you’ll also notice a nice little establishment right behind you. Art Cacao is a grab-and-go station offering chocolates, croissants and some seriously mouthwatering pastries.
In the lifts, you’ll see two sets of doors with respective options of floors. One serves the floors that are accessible to the public, namely the ground floor, the mezzanine level where Latest Recipe restaurant is located and level nine, where you’ll find the Bamboo Chic restaurant, the spa, fitness centre and swimming pool... The other doors go straight to the hotel rooms.
Once you get to your desired floor, you’ll be greeted by a large glass tank containing a work of art. These stunning visual displays, which are present on every floor, were all commissioned to local artists and range from sculptures to wire art highlighting the development of Saigon at various stages. These special touches are unique to Le Meridien Saigon, as part of its mission to promote local art and artists.
Not only is the room spacious and comfortable, you also have everything you’ll need. From a well-stocked minibar to complimentary fruits and a bar of Marou chocolate, the attention to detail for a refined user experience is captured to perfection here.
Individual light switches and a master light switch on either side of the bed; a stunning panoramic view of the Saigon river; noise-proof windows; a bathroom that cleverly utilises space — you’re not just in a hotel room, you’ve walked into a piece of art.
Another feature worthy of highlighting is the bed. Le Meridien custom-makes all their beds, with rigorous sleep tests done to ensure quality. This has resulted in a mattress that’s designed not to disturb your partner if you happen to move; it’s perfect for light sleepers.
There are plenty of culinary options available in the hotel, from Japanese-Cantonese fusion cuisine at Bamboo Chic to the delightful buffet offers at Latest Recipe.
You also go to Latest Recipe to have your complimentary breakfast. Featuring a buffet spread of essential breakfast favourites like cold cuts, a variety of pastries, breads, salads, Japanese fare and, of course, a choice of coffee or tea. It’s the best way to start your day.
On level nine, you have the Explore Spa, the saltwater-based pool, and a well-equipped Fitness Centre, both overlooking the Saigon River. The spa includes a range of services from aromatherapy massages to saltwater facials. The full description of the updated promotions available can all be found in handy, well-laid-out pamphlets in your room.
Le Meridien Saigon’s wedding and business facilities feature a harmony of contemporary design and modern equipment, a balance of form and function which falls well in line with the hotel’s trendy, luxury standards.

The Reverie Saigon
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.
