Redefined luxury returns at Park Hyatt Saigon
Thanks to the Luxury Redefinition project, Park Hyatt Saigon has brought a new expression of luxury to Saigon. Whilst the signature French colonial feel is maintained, a bright color palette of white and ivory has been added to the public areas and Park Lounge, transforming the entire place into a fresh and sophisticated sanctuary of peace. Guests can immediately feel the difference at the moment they walk in. Crystal chandeliers shining and reflecting sunlight coming through the high windows, eclectic hand-crafted furniture in Park Lounge featuring a lively mix of different patterns, colors and shapes give the whole venue a brand new look, yet still keeps its timeless beauty, which the hotel is known for.
Park Hyatt Saigon’s 245 rooms and suites have also been completely upgraded. Now featuring a refreshing white coat and luxurious artistic elements coming from Vietnamese artworks, they perfectly blend traditional comforts with latest modern technology such as in-room iPads, Nespresso machines, sensor lighting system and a very sophisticated central air conditioning control. New room types have also been added to the hotel’s room inventory.

Deluxe suites have been added to this floor, which provide a private terrace filled with a green garden, a coffee table and lounge chairs.
