A boutique retreat hidden on a quiet bend of the Saigon River
City | Relaxation | Spa
The An Lam Saigon River is an exquisite, boutique river resort that was once a private home, with green, leafy gardens and river-view rooms. Located on the Saigon River, the hotel is only 15 minutes from the city centre, but a world away in terms of privacy, peace and seclusion. Attractions like the Van Thanh Tourist Park, Jade Emperor Pagoda, and Gia Dinh Park are less than nine miles away. The resort is also accessible via speedboat, with services operating three times a day.
Accommodation comprises 19 luxurious suites and villas, all individually decorated for a bespoke feel – the owner is a furniture designer and often furnishes the rooms with his own one-off pieces. Riverfront Pool Villas have private balconies with terraces and pools. Alternatively, book a Garden Pool Villa; it can accommodate two adults and has a private jacuzzi and garden views. If you’d prefer some extra space, choose from either an An Lam Suite, a Pool Suite that has its own private pool, or a Garden Pool Villa, which has a garden and a pool as the name suggests.
The hotel’s main restaurant is the Luc Binh, whose name means ‘hyacinth’. The food is excellent, with both Western and Vietnamese options on the menu. Typical dishes include spring rolls, bo buc lac (wok-tossed beef) and sea bream wrapped in a banana leaf. Luc Binh also has a rustic bar area on the riverfront with a decked terrace. For air-conditioned comfort, dine in Villa Tram’s main floor restaurant or privately inside the two intimate climate-controlled rooms.
For relaxation, visit the hotel’s spa, which has two treatment rooms, a beauty salon and a steam room. Cool off after a day of sightseeing by taking a dip in the outdoor swimming pool, which is surrounded by tropical gardens scattered with hot-pink bougainvillea. There’s also a gym, yoga classes, free WiFi throughout, onsite parking, and a laundry service.
