IMPERIAL Vung Tau: A Private Beach Away from the City

By: Sivaraj Pragasm

Vung Tau is a favourite weekend or holiday destination for many of Saigon’s residents. Being the closest beach to the city, many locals, expats and tourists alike make it a point to visit Vung Tau for its attractions and its beautiful beach.

However, the beachfront area can get a little crowded. So whether you’re in Vung Tau for a weekend, or enjoying an extended vacation, one of the best choices for accommodation has to be IMPERIAL Hotel Vung Tau.

Vung Tau’s Premier 5-Star Hotel

Being one of the most luxurious hotels and residences in Vung Tau, IMPERIAL gives you services and amenities of the highest international standards, while ensuring you get a truly local experience.

IMPERIAL, the only 5-star hotel in the city that also provides guests with their own private beach at the IMPERIAL Beach Club, lets guests soak in the sun in total privacy. Here you can recline on the sand and sip on cocktails while watching the waves lap up the Bai Sau coastline with a breeze in your hair.


If you don’t feel like getting a dose of saltwater, you can also check out the swimming pool close to the beach. With relaxing music accompanying the beach’s sights and sounds, you can enjoy a relaxing and refreshing day out with your friends and loved ones at this beachfront paradise.

A Landmark

The hotel’s Victorian-era style and architecture is definitely one of the hotel’s defining characteristics. With exquisite sculptured walls and pillars, and a spacious layout with tiled flooring, walking through the lobby is like visiting an 18th-century British estate.


For example, take a look at the Royal Garden. The beautifully landscaped space delightfully harmonises blues and greens. With the soothing greenery of the carefully and well-manicured plants placed alongside the dazzling swimming pools and jacuzzis, the Royal Garden is the perfect setting for some peace and quiet.


A Culinary Spectacle

Your hunger will always be satiated at IMPERIAL Vung Tau’s four flagship restaurant outlets.

La Sirena Seafood Bar and Grill offers some of the best seafood you will find in the city; Shi Fu Chinese Bistro provides authentic Chinese cuisine from the Guangdong region. Besides typical Cantonese fare like dim sum, you can also find homemade Peking duck and Sichuan-style stir-fried tofu.


You can also enjoy more Asian cuisine at Asia Selection, located just off the lobby of the King’s Tower. Offering a tasty selection of Thai, Japanese and Indian cuisines, guests can dine in a spacious setting with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Royal Garden. The restaurant also hosts a breakfast buffet. Lunch and dinner are served à la carte.

The IMPERIAL Dining Room, the prime fine-dining option in Vung Tau, radiates elegance and class.


Specialising in local fine-dining fare, the Dining Room serves traditional dishes from the various regions of Vietnam, including local favourites like chả cá, Hanoi’s famous grilled fish, bún bò Huế, the popular beef noodle soup from Hue and grilled rice cakes straight from the beaches of Vung Tau.

A Western menu is also available, featuring classic international favourites such as pasta, salads, sandwiches, grilled beef, lamb, Norwegian salmon and many others.

Serving a breakfast buffet and à la carte lunches and dinners, rich jewel tones of maroon and gold highlight the restaurant’s premium setting. Featuring both an indoor and alfresco dining area, the restaurant can seat 250 to 300 guests.
