Hôtel des Arts Saigon, M Gallery Collection
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Why We Love It:
Known locally as ‘M Gallery’, this Parisian-tinged, fragranced dream of creamy, elegant abodes and stellar city views is currently our fave address to bed down in Saigon. Channelling a contempo take on French colonial design, feminine rooms and suites of pale ecru, teak and polished parquet are gracefully fitted out with custom, artisan-made furniture, covetable art works and retro claw-foot tubs, while the curvaceous floor-to-ceiling windows offer lovely, leafy District 3 vistas.
Outside your chamber are eat, drink and play options aplenty, including a sky-high dipper for lounging, vintage-glam Café des Beaux-Arts for tea or ‘tails and Vietnamese spiced plates around-the-clock at Saigon Kitchen. Teetering on the 23rd floor, handsome, velvety Social Club is the foodie choice for prime Euro flaves (their free-flow Sunday Brunch is one of the city’s best), while the vibey bar deck backdropped by the glittering skyline is the stylista go-to for late-night fun n’ frolics by the pool. Quite simply, très chic.
