September 1 marks the grand opening of The Reverie Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City. As we reported earlier this year, there’s lots of buzz about this highly anticipated hotel, which aims to set a new standard of luxury in Vietnam. Housed in the 39-story Times Square tower in District 1, The Reverie Saigon is a showcase for exceptional Italian design (think custom décor by Colombostile, Giorgetti, Visionnaire, Poltrona Frau and Cassina).
There are 12 categories of accommodation which are among the biggest in Ho Chi Minh City, and floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the Saigon River and the Mekong Delta. Each room is equipped with a walk-in closet, Cisco VoIP telephones, and luxury bath products by Chopard (rooms) and Hermès or Acqua di Parma (suites). The crème de la crème are the Saigon Suite and Reverie Suite, with a price tag of $12,000 and $15,000, respectively.
Facilities include sprawling spa, an enormous ballroom with Swarovski chandeliers, top-of-the-line fitness center with a 25-meter pool, and four dining concepts. Of course a hotel of this caliber comes with a fleet of 12 luxury cars, including a Bentley, Rolls Royce limited edition Phantom Dragon, and various classes of Mercedes.
