Anyone who might enjoy the comfort and atmosphere of a restored colonial villa, whilst immersing themselves in Hue’s rich history.
Alongside the fabled Perfume River, in two hectares of lush gardens in central Hue – a city in the heart of Vietnam’s coastal provinces
A fusion of dark wood and distinctive art deco reminiscent of colonial Indochina pervade the 122 rooms and suites. Signature suites include four poster beds, beautiful art deco furniture and spacious terraces. Junior suites have been designed with differing themes such as a ‘journey through China’ or an ‘adventure in ancient Egypt’. See it to believe it.
The freshest market ingredients, exceptional local and international flavours and stunning views of the perfume River: three ingredients that make for a memorable meal in the main restaurant. Or why not go for a dinner cruise on the river which includes a three course meal prepared by the on-board chef.
Tennis, a fully equipped gymnasium, a huge saltwater pool and Spa look after guests in-house. Outside La Residence, book a must-do trip along the river to see the UNESCO World Heritage Site of lavish dynastic tombs, impressive reminders of Vietnam’s bygone Emperors. A fleet of bicycles is available for exploring the rest of the city, where majestic temples rub shoulders with ancient buildings, silk shops and myriad local restaurants.
Dine like the Mandarins at the hotel’s Imperial Dinner, which is held in the gardens on the banks of the river, or at the old theatre in the Citadel. Or Do It Yourself, by joining classes which provide hands-on lessons in Vietnamese cooking.
