Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Park Hyatt Saigon
Where colonial meets cool
What it is
A 245-room urban resort with a colonial feel on Lam Son Square.
What it isn't
A bland business hotel (note the DJ performances in the martini bar).
What we think
Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, Park Hyatt Saigon has perfected a multitude of ways to pamper you, from the attendants proffering cocktails and mineral water at the garden-shrouded, 66-foot pool, to the spa, where local fruits and herbs await to soothe even the most horrendous jet lag. We love that the 245 recently-redone French Colonial–style guest rooms are fitted with loaner mini iPads, lights on sensors and Nespresso machines to perk you up at any hour (book a suite for original lacquerware and embroidery by Vietnamese artists, not to mention a roomy living room). Contact the Hyatt E-Concierge before arrival to arrange any flight of fancy—from your pillow of choice to reservations at Lan Anh tennis courts.
You're here because
Service can’t be beat. Yep, there are 24-hour butlers. And yep, they’ll shine your shoes gratis.
The mark of any good getaway is returning home a few pounds heavier, and thanks to award-winning pastry chef Narae at The Pastry Boutique—where French religieuses are just as cloud-fluffy as the ones you wolfed down in Paris—you can bet on it.
