The Rev­erie Saigon brings un­abashedly op­u­lent Ital­ian styling to Ho Chi Minh City


THE REV­ERIE SAIGON is one of the grand­est ho­tels in Ho Chi Minh City, with a level of ser­vice that is un­par­al­leled. Opened just two years ago, the 286 rooms are ex­pan­sive and the views of the Mekong Delta spec­tac­u­lar.

The ho­tel’s de­vel­op­ers threw out the pre­con­cep­tion that a ho­tel in a place as ex­otic as Viet­nam should re­fer to the her­itage of the coun­try. In­stead, they tapped the best de­sign­ers in the world to cre­ate the look and feel of its rooms and suites. De­sign­ers for lead­ing houses in Italy, in­clud­ing Colom­bos­tile, Giorgetti, Vi­sion­naire, Poltrona Frau and Cassina, con­trib­uted to the en­deav­our.

Each suite has its own per­son­al­ity, whether it is clas­si­cal and so­phis­ti­cated, or ro­man­tic and whim­si­cal, or anything else in be­tween.

The Rev­erie Saigon boasts two De­signer Suites by Giorgetti, a de­signer with a modernist bent. One is se­duc­tively sleek, yet in­ti­mate and re­fined. It is a sky-high re­treat, with decor ren­dered in Ital­ian silk and Ital­ian mo­saic tiles. The bed­clothes are Frette linen.

The splen­did mar­ble bath has all the frills supplied by Her­mès and Ac­qua di Parma.

Rec­om­mended ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude din­ing in pri­vate at the din­ing ta­ble of solid wal­nut, which sits be­neath a beau­ti­ful chan­de­lier of Mu­rano glass, or soak­ing away any re­main­ing ves­tiges of stress in a hot tub by a win­dow onto an en­tranc­ing view of the sto­ried Saigon River.
