Filled with a standard and style of sumptuous decoration that is as both breathtakingly beautiful and equally as refined as the Opera House nearby, Park Hyatt Saigon is simply a joy to visit.
Ornate chandeliers are at home hanging from lofty ceilings here, while underfoot – lavish rugs cover dark, polished wooden floors throughout; quality runs to the very core of this highly-respected establishment. And, though taking colonial-era inspiration for its décor to match the hotel’s grand exterior, there is also an unmistakable Vietnamese pride at Park Hyatt Saigon, and contemporary touches too.
These can be seen first in the many impressive paintings that bedeck the walls, bringing fun bursts of colour to otherwise calm and muted tones of pale marble and cream, but then with their glass-clad bathrooms and walk-in rain showers, cutting-edge cuisine and stunning spa, the Park Hyatt is also every bit the modern luxury Saigon hotel.
Indeed nowhere is this truer than in that irresistible onsite Xuan Spa. Seeking to reflect the essence of the wider Mekong Delta, itself a wondrous region of Vietnam riddled with waterways and verdant countryside, natural treatments at Xuan Spa draw both inspiration and ingredients from the plants and flowers that flourish around the region.
So here, intoxicating essential oils drift through the air during uplifting facials, revitalising massages, cleansing wraps and traditional treatments, all carried out with only absolute wellness and harmony in mind. Outside there is a central courtyard, sun terrace and swimming pool lined by a two-tier waterfall, and with a gym, live piano music and fine dining restaurant also on-site, there is little the Park Hyatt Saigon has not thought of.
Finally, being close to the city’s all-important retail outlets, restaurants and highlights of Ho Chi Minh from local markets to high-end boutiques, Notre Dame Cathedral or the galleries and museums that offer insight into Vietnam’s complex history, Park Hyatt Saigon happens to be one of the best-placed properties around too.
As with the rest of the hotel, guestrooms at Park Hyatt Saigon are glamourous with an aristocratic edge, all feeling full of light thanks to larger than average windows too. Enter into a room of neo-classical curves and neutral hues here, after a day in the city, and feel instantly serene. While décor may be reminiscent of colonial times, these rooms are also fully-equipped with all the modern-day conveniences you would hope for including Bose Bluetooth speakers, a Nespresso coffee machine, smart room controls, a walk-in rain shower and separate marble bathtub in some, air-conditioning, and more besides.
Named in homage, no doubt, to the adjacent Opera House, this restaurant is a chic-Italian affair with a menu to match. Feast on flavoursome Ravioli, gorgeous bowls of Risotto and tasty woodfired pizzas. With a veranda and private dining room in addition to the main dining area, you will have the freedom to create the perfect evening in the surrounds that suits you while savouring a mouth-watering menu in Opera.
Discover divine Vietnamese, and French cuisine fused with local flavours, at Square One. Enticing open kitchens showcase the chef’s mesmerising skills as they prepare bowls of delicious noodles, fresh seafood and succulent steaks as you wait in anticipation, surrounded by thoroughly modern, contemporary Vietnamese decor.
Park Lounge is a bright, sophisticated spot, offering the perfect place to take a break in the afternoon, and sip one of the many choices of tea that frequent their tea menu, perhaps spoil yourself and pair it with a homemade sweet treat. Once the day comes to a close, you can also find evening entertainment here until 11pm.
A charming patisserie posing as an upmarket store, these cabinets house delectable desserts rather than designer accessories. Return time and again to sample the carefully crafted macaroons, fresh pastries and a tempting range of delicacies. You won’t run out of options here, with a sensational selection of equally indulgent delights created daily.
Split over two levels, with a mezzanine perfect for people watching, 2 Lam Son is a trendy bar where you can spend the evening working your way through an amazing list of cocktails, while snacking on delicate light bites too. With a happy hour spanning from 5pm through to 8pm and a DJ adding to the atmosphere, it’s a great place to let your hair down after a long journey or busy day.
For an evening of al fresco drinking head to The Terrace. Looking out to Saigon Square, a busy shopping area, while away the hours perusing the extensive wine list and nibbling on a cheese platter while soaking up the ambience.
Activities and Entertainment
If you’re looking to be close to the highlights of Ho Chi Minh in a central luxury hotel, then Park Hyatt Saigon is an excellent choice. With a clear French influence apparent throughout, this link can be explored still further with the colonial period reminders of this extraordinary city all within easy walking distance from the hotel. The Central Post Office is a stunning example of Gustave Eiffel’s work, while the Notre Dame Cathedral is a striking sight to behold amid more recent architectural additions, the Opera House opposite, of course, as well as a clutch of parks for picnics, shopping outlets, museum and restaurants nearby.
Back at Park Hyatt Saigon itself, once night falls, delight in the eclectic mix of music that flows from the Park Lounge, thanks to nightly performances given by the hotel’s pianist.
A pool to luxuriate next to, a spa to revitalise your senses, gym for active types and a fine selection of gourmet restaurants will be sure to tick the boxes while staying at Park Hyatt Saigon. Take advantage of the babysitting service and head out for the evening, speak to the fantastic concierge or kick off your shoes and order some room service for an intimate meal, in the privacy of your own suite. No matter how you choose to spend your time in this exciting city, Park Hyatt Saigon has it covered.
