Fantasia and a Reverie
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.
