Last month’s opening of Le Meridien Saigon is part of the gradual poshing up of riverside thoroughfare, Ton Duc Thang. Just a stone’s throw from the city centre, this five-star property juxtaposes rich elements of Vietnamese-French heritage with a sleek, contemporary vibe. The inauguration of this Starwood property also marks the opening of the first Le Meridien in Vietnam.
The 345 rooms offer views across river and into the city, and feature a French soaking bath and a rainforest shower. Other cravings can be satisfied at the hotel’s restaurants: Bamboo Chic, serving Chinese-Japanese cuisine; Explore Bistro in the Explore Spa & Health Club that serves up healthy and detoxifying cuisine; Latest Recipe, the hotel’s signature dining venue featuring interactive buffets; and Latitude 10, a coffee bar by day, and a bar-bar by night.
An indoor pool, a 400sqm ball room, function rooms, a sundeck and all the mod cons make up the mix.
Le Meridien is located at 3C Ton Duc Thang, Q1, HCMC. For more information click on lemeridien.com/Saigon
