Hotel Majestic Saigon | Saigon

Opened in 1925 as Saigon’s most luxurious hotel, the Majestic Hotel Saigon has gone through several reincarnations over the years, reflecting the tumultuous history of Vietnam.

Former haunt of foreign correspondents, spies and once home to Graham Greene, the Majestic Saigon Hotel exudes history, tradition and romance.

In a great location overlooking the Saigon River, the Majestic Saigon remains a hotel of tradition, hospitality and elegance with an aura steeped in its French colonial era roots.

The Saigon Opera House, Re-unification Palace, Notre-Dame Cathedral and Ben Thanh Markets are all also just a short walk away.

The Majestic has a beautiful art-deco era lobby, with stained glass, chandeliers and period furniture. Tiny, antique lifts lead to the rooms in the Classic Wing, which has wide corridors, beautiful carpets and artworks on the wall.

Rooms at the Majestic are a good size and the Saigon River View Rooms in the Classic Wing are very popular so book well in advance for these if possible. In fact many of the room types are booked well in advance.

The Majestic Saigon Hotel is the ‘Grand Dame’ of Saigon's colonial-era hotels, in an excellent location by the Saigon River with plenty of restaurants, shops and bars close by.

We love the Majestic’s rooftop bar, which has a nice view over the Saigon River and is a great spot for pre-dinner drinks. Like everything at the Majestic – it’s a little bit old fashioned but the river views are great.

Lonely Planet described the lobby as ‘like an old lady trying to hide her wrinkles’ which we thought summed it up nicely until renovations really lifted the look of the hotel. The old lady has a twinkle in her eye again!

White Mansion Hotel | Phnom Penh


Located in a beautiful old whitewashed building, Phnom Penh’s historic White Mansion Boutique Hotel occupies the former residence of the American Ambassador to Cambodia.


This Phnom Penh boutique hotel is a real classical beauty in the heart of the city and offers a very elegant place to stay.


From the grand sweeping staircase to the spacious high-ceilinged rooms, a stay at the White Mansion evokes echoes of yesteryear.


Rooms are spacious, uncluttered and classically designed with quality fittings and furniture.


The White Mansion is extremely well managed and the French Bakery and café on the ground floor are a real bonus – especially for coffee-lovers. White Mansion Phnom Penh offers a small pool and massage facilities.


We love the style of this superb boutique hotel in Phnom Penh. You’ll enjoy taking the stairs up to your room just to admire the spectacular staircase.


The location is pretty good and there are restaurants and boutique shops within walking distance. There are some great places to eat on nearby 278 Street.

Shinta Mani Angkor and Bensley Collection Pool Villas | Siem Reap

Shinta Mani Angkor is an intimate and stylish 39-room luxury boutique hotel in Siem Reap.

Shinta Mani Angkor is not only one of the best boutique hotels in Siem Reap; it also does a sterling job in supporting the local community through providing free hospitality industry training for young people at risk in Siem Reap.

Shinta Mani Angkor was thoroughly overhauled and expanded a few years ago, with a brand new wing added and the hotel upgraded to reveal fabulous new luxury rooms, and a design straight from the studios of renowned hotel designed Bill Bensley.

Shinta Mani Angkor is located in a tranquil and leafy setting in the centre of Siem Reap, which means that markets, shops and restaurants are all right on the doorstep. The temples of Angkor are 15 minutes or so away by tuk-tuk.

The hotel has a great swimming pool – a welcome treat after a long day touring the ruins. The spa offers a range of treatments including foot massages for the temple-weary.

Shinta Mani Angkor Bensley Collection

Shinta Mani Angkor Bensley Collection consists of just 10 luxury private pool villas set amongst the shade of the trees of the former Royal Palace in Siem Reap, an annex of the Shinta Mani Angkor hotel.

Designed by legendary hotel designer Bill Bensley, these villas offer the height of luxury in Siem Reap - ideal for honeymooners or for those looking for style, intimacy and privacy in the heart of Siem Reap.

As always with Bill Bensley, the design is meticulous, including, according to Bill, 'the most comfortable beds imaginable', dressed with luxury Khmer linen.

Each villa consists of two pavilions (56 sq. m total) and features floor to ceiling windowed bathrooms looking out onto the private gardens, outdoor bathtub and rainforest shower.

Villas all feature custom designed furniture, exclusive works of Khmer art and handcrafted fittings and furnishings.

Have the second bed set up on the rooftop deck and spend the night under the stars if you wish.

Each villa is attended by a private 'Bensley Butler'.

Apricot Hotel | Hanoi

Locating right on the edge of Hoan Kiem Lake in the centre of Hanoi, Apricot Hotel offers a superb, sweeping view of the lake from its rooftop swimming pool.

This neo-classically designed luxury hotel in Hanoi has a real sense of style, nods more than a quick glance at the arts and offers comfort and refinement in its rooms and dining venues.

Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the hotel is large enough to have plenty of facilities.

The choice of rooms ranges from the cosy and bijou (25 sq. m.) ‘Sketch’ rooms through to Premium Suites, the twice as large ‘Gallery’ suites.

We were very impressed by the Apricot Hotel and it represents excellent value for money.

The very large swimming pool is a real bonus and a great place to relax after a day touring around Hanoi.

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Paradise Cruises are a step up from most of the vessels cruising Halong Bay and offers a luxurious and more intimate cruising experience.

Choose from Deluxe Cabins, Balcony Cabins and Suites.

On the top-deck, you can laze in the sun, surrounded by the stunning setting of the bay as well as enjoying a barbecue dinner.

The overnight cruise of Halong Bay is the most popular option and offers a great experience of all times of day in one of the most beautiful locations in Vietnam.

A Halong Bay Cruise with Paradise Cruises offers a good balance between leisurely cruising and seeing the highlights of the bay - not too much is tried to be crammed in and most guests enjoy the balance of cruising and shore excursions.

Paradise Cruises depart from an area where only a handful of the cruises on Halong Bay depart from.

This means the sailing itinerary is less crowded and has a more peaceful ambience, with fewer other vessels in sight.

Pilgrimage Village Boutique Resort & Spa | Hue

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Pilgrimage Village Boutique Resort is a charming boutique hotel in Hue, with a design based on a rustic Vietnamese village.

The feel of Pilgrimage Village is very tranquil, with winding paths, tropical gardens, ponds, a very peaceful spa and an inviting swimming pool.

There is a good choice of rooms to choose from at Pilgrimage Village, including popular Honeymoon Bungalows.

Pilgrimage Village is just 3 miles from Hue centre and offers a really peaceful escape within easy reach of town and the Emperor’s Mausoleums.

The atmosphere at Pilgrimage Village is very peaceful and relaxing - a great escape from the hustle and bustle of youthful Hue. We love the spa, and the yoga pavilion is in a beautiful spot overlooking lotus ponds.

The location means that it's a short drive into Hue town but we think the location is fantastic - it's a very peaceful resort-like atmosphere here but still with easy access into Hue.
