Bonnie Tai jets off to the vibrant metropolis that is Ho Chi Minh City to discover the Hotel Des Arts Saigon property and all it can offer meeting planners.
The first word that comes to mind when describing the Hotel des Arts Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City is ‘grand’.
From the massive teak wooden doors that greet you at the entrance, to the Indochine Française interiors that flow through the spaces – every detail of this luxe boutique property lures you in to explore and learn more.
There is a lot of old world charm packed into the 168-key property. The Sky Lounge on level 22 is reminiscent of a 1930s-era Gentleman’s Club and offers sprawling views over Saigon, whilst the Social Club Restaurant delivers a similar vibe complete with a fresh seasonal menu inspired by European cuisine.
The concierge staff are quick to recommend local haunts and are incredibly hospitable. Staff members are immaculately presented, with female members dressed in beautiful ao dai (traditional Vietnamese garb) to really round off the look.
There are five room categories to choose from including Deluxe, Grand Deluxe, Sky Executive, Sky Executive Grand and Executive Studio Suite. Those staying in the Executive Studio Suite will enjoy soaking in an elegant clawfoot tub while taking in panoramic views over the Saigon skyline, a plush king size bed to rest your head, and a separate dressing room to get ready in.
Meetings and Events
There are three boardrooms and a large ballroom on site to choose from for meetings and events. The selection of function rooms can accommodate anywhere between 10 and 200 delegates and all feature state-of-the-art AV technology. Each function space can be styled for all types of events including product launches and executive meetings.
Pack your swimmers and hit the infinity pool on the rooftop for a relaxing dip. Afterwards, lounge around at the Social Club and enjoy a cocktail at sunset.
Hotel Des Arts Saigon is a quick 30 minute cab ride from International Airport and is located within close proximity to a number of top District 1 hot spots such as the Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica, the Saigon Central Post Office, the War Remnants Museum, the Jade Emperor Pagoda and many more.
