Fantasia and a Reverie

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Of a hand­ful of new con­crete gi­ants in the city, the most stun­ning is The Reverie Saigon, a grandiose Ital­ian-in­spired ho­tel on Nguyen Hue that’s drip­ping in jew­els. It’s one of the most beau­ti­ful and lux­u­ri­ous places to stay in Saigon, if you’re able and will­ing to splurge on a room—rates start at USD $350 ($2,718) per night.

For any­one trav­el­ing through Saigon, the ho­tel is a des­ti­na­tion in its own right: Par­tic­u­larly for de­sign fa­nat­ics, with its col­or­ful ceil­ing in­stal­la­tions made of hand-blown Mu­rano glass, os­ten­ta­tious fur­nish­ings such as a five-me­ter­long lobby sofa in pur­ple os­trich leather, and one-of-a-kind pieces in­clud­ing a Baldi mon­u­men­tal clock out­fit­ted in bright emerald green and a hand­some Ve­liero book­case made of 1,800 in­di­vid­ual glass pieces.

Bunker down in a lav­ish suite for the night, with com­mand­ing views over the Saigon River. A force of Italy’s lead­ing de­sign houses have col­lab­o­rated to bring about the Baroque-in­spired de­tail­ing of the rooms, en­com­pass­ing hand-laid mo­saic tiles in the bath­rooms, floor chan­de­liers, mar­bled baths and ex­quis­ite Ital­ian silks.

In the evening, head to the Club Lounge on the 38th floor for an evening cock­tail as you watch the sun set over Nguyen Hue Street.
