The Reverie Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Written by Ayesha Khan
The newly opened Reverie Saigon has set the bar for luxury in the Vietnamese urban hub as high as its lofty roost on the 27th to the 39th floors of the city’s famed Times Square skyscraper.
Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1 has always enjoyed a reputation as one of Asia’s most stylish urban quartiers. It is therefore fitting that the city’s most opulent hotel is handsomely perched right between sprawling Nguyen Hue Street and fashion-forward Dong Khoi Street.
As one of the latest additions to the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World, The Reverie takes a bold step away from the usual sleek and modern Asian hospitality experience, instead infusing European palatial luxe within a contemporary shell. This design mastery is attributed to a veritable Italian dream team of furniture and interiors experts from Provasi, Giorgetti, Visionnaire, and Colombostile, and features enough opulent marble, gilding, and precious wood to make even Louis XIV jealous.
Staying true to its promise of the most luxurious hotel experience in Ho Chi Minh City, the hotel offers butler service, private chefs upon request, and pick-up and drop-off in a Rolls-Royce or a helicopter to guests of its 286 lavishly appointed rooms and suites. A 1,200m2 spa and fitness pavilion and five distinct culinary options, including a Cantonese restaurant helmed by a Michelin-starred chef, round out the luxe offerings.
The Long @ Times Square
The Long @ Times Square has become a mainstay on the Ho Chi Minh City culinary scene. Its record-setting bar spans the length of an entire city block from Dong Khoi Street to Nguyen Hue Street. The venue features Italian fare, from wood-fired pizzas made by a resident chef from Naples to an expansive 32-flavour gelato bar.
