Mai House Saigon Hotel: A Luxurious Retreat in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City (Review)

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Mai House Saigon Hotel in Vietnam after a smooth and relatively short eight-hour red-eye flight from Melbourne on VietJet Air. The experience was exceptional from start to finish, offering a perfect blend of old-world charm and modern luxury.

Arrival and First Impressions
The hotel’s French-Indochinese design immediately transports you to a bygone era of elegance. The welcoming staff exemplifies gracious hospitality, ensuring a seamless check-in process. The lobby’s ambiance, adorned with bespoke art collections, sets a sophisticated tone for the stay. The mixed berry-flavoured welcome drinks added a nice touch.

Our room was a sanctuary of comfort and style. The decor, a mix of colonial charm and contemporary amenities, provided a cozy yet luxurious atmosphere. The plush bedding and thoughtful touches, like a welcome fruit platter and high-quality toiletries, made the room feel like a home away from home.

Dining at Mai House is a culinary delight. C’est La Vie Restaurant offers a delectable fusion of French and Vietnamese cuisine, with generous portions perfect for sharing. The breakfast buffet is extensive, featuring everything from traditional pho to freshly baked pastries.

The hotel boasts an array of amenities, including a rejuvenating spa, a well-equipped fitness centre, and a serene pool deck. The Four Elements Spa offers traditional Asian treatments combined with modern techniques, providing a truly relaxing experience. The pool area is a tranquil oasis, perfect for unwinding after a day of exploring the bustling city.

Mai House Saigon’s location in District 3 is ideal for both leisure and business travellers. It’s conveniently close to major attractions like the War Remnants Museum and Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon, making it easy to explore the rich cultural heritage of Ho Chi Minh City.

Overall Experience
My stay at Mai House Saigon was nothing short of spectacular. The combination of luxurious accommodations, impeccable service, and prime location makes it a top choice for anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh City. Whether you’re here for business or leisure, Mai House Saigon offers an unforgettable experience that blends the best of Vietnam’s past and present.
