Caravelle Saigon, a renowned 5 star hotel in Ho Chi Minh, recently completed the renovations that were being done to their guestrooms and function spaces, which include the iconic Caravelle Ballroom, as part of their 60th birthday celebrations for 2019, commemorating the hotel’s opening in Christmas Even in 1959.
The rooms opened early in May, following nine months of work, during which staff were made to shuffle and juggle rooms and bookings. The rooms in the Opera Wing on the 8th-12th floors, with the smallest sitting at about 38.5m2 in size, now sport new decor and finishing alongside its walk-in vanities, and marble bathrooms.
Every room provides privacy and comfort, while allowing for a view of the city that only a 5 star hotel in Ho Chi Minh can offer with soundproof windows. Each of them also come with a 49″ Samsung flat screen TV, and complimentary Wi-Fi. For those looking for a bigger room, there’s also the Signature Premium and Signature Studio rooms are also available, both sporting larger floor areas, couches, and working spaces, making them great for longer trips, whether for business or pleasure.
As for the hotel’s 10 event spaces, they’ve been upgraded with new lighting and AV equipment, complete with 4K and Ultra HD support. The Caravell Ballroom has had its capacity increased, and is now capable of holding up to 400 guests, as well as being split into two separate event spaces.
The four smaller Opera Rooms overlooking the Opera House have also gotten work done, receiving new, large floor-to-ceiling windows in every room. There’s also an updated 180m2 Pre-Function Area.
The Caravelle Saigon was welcomed as a particularly modern building for its time, and has since found its place at the heart of Ho Chi Minh’s residents, thanks to its design and due to the fact that, during the tumultuous two decades that followed its opening, the hotel housed all sorts of people from the war, including journalists covering the conflict, soldiers looking for some peace, and even several foreign embassies, like Australia’s and New Zealand’s.
Currently, the Caravelle Saigon is offering discounts for people who book, with the promo to end by July 15th.
