Luxury Hotels in Hanoi, Halong Bay & Northern Vietnam

A quiet haven in the streets of Vietnam's buzzing capital, the Sofitel Legend Metropole is an elegant base with a French flair - ideal for exploring Hanoi's Old Quarter and magnificent Opera House. In Halong Bay, one of our favourite boats is the Halong Violet, a stunning traditional junk lavishly finished in 1930s Indochinese style, which allows you to explore these islands and caves in utmost luxury. And in the northern mountainous regions, we just love walking through the lush valleys and around the green paddy fields before relaxing in the hilltop bungalows of the Mai Chau Ecolodge.
