Luxury travelers to Ho Chi Minh City can now check in to the buzzed-about Reverie Saigon. As we reported last year, this highly anticipated hotel is showcasing opulent Italian décor by some of Italy’s top furniture designers (Colombostile, Giorgetti, Provasi and Visonaire). The website touts the 62 suites and 224 rooms as “crafted to perfection,” and a recent press announcement described its "unapologetic splendor.”
The Los Angeles Times reports that parts of the hotel are still under construction, and a Grand Opening will happen later in the summer. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, The Reverie Saigon is located in the 39-story Times Square building in District 1. Lavish perks include a fleet of luxury house cars (think Mercedes-Benz, Bentleys and Rolls-Royces) plus private butler service for Reverie and Saigon level suites.
There are five dining and nightlife options, including the R&J Italian restaurant and lounge, serving traditional Italian fare; the Royal Pavilion, where a Michelin-starred chef prepares Cantonese cuisine; and the Café Cardinal, overlooking the hotel’s pool on the 6th floor and billed as “Saigon’s most buzzed about destination.” Not to miss: The Long @ Times Square, which has a bar counter that stretches the length of an entire city block, from Dong Khoi Street to Nguyen Hue Boulevard.
