Le Résidence Hotel and Spa in Hue
Perched on the banks of the Perfume River just upstream from Hue’s famous citadel, this 122-room hotel takes its identity from the former French colonial governor’s mansion at its core.
The same nautical modern architecture that makes the villa so charming is reprised in the two modern wings, which were added during a thorough yet sensitive renovation of the original building so that the place is pure Indochina.
The original villa includes a reception area decorated with framed photos of Old Hue and an adjacent bar with deep club chairs and eight dreamy rooms, plus a presidential suite.
These have a colonial feel, with ceiling fans, mosquito netting (for atmosphere more than necessity), and dark stained wood furnishings.
An additional 112 rooms are housed in the new wings, which frame a large pool overlooking the river.
Hue is the home of Vietnam’s finest cuisine and the chefs at Le Residence use the freshest market ingredients to create delicious local, regional and international dishes.
Add to that the stunning view from the restaurant across the Perfume River to the Imperial Hue Citadel and you have the perfect recipe for a memorable meal!
