Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
In the colonial mould but with all the glitz and modern amenities you’d expect of a world-class five-star, the 9-storey Park Hyatt is regarded by many as the city’s top hotel. Its rooms are classically stylish and enjoy a prime location overlooking Lam Son Square, a few blocks from the Opera House, Notre Dame Cathedral and Reunification Palace. Guests may choose between two award-winning gourmet restaurants (one specializing in Italian, the other, Vietnamese seafood and Western steaks). There’s a beautiful spa, and a large pool, as well as fitness complex, bar and business centre. The hotel also has some new, tastefully redesigned rooms, following a major refurbishment programme in the first half of 2015, completely revamping its interiors, furnishings and fixtures.
