Caravelle Saigon Embarks on Rooms Renovation

Daily News - Saigon/HCMC: July 20, 2018

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam (July 17, 2018) - A new experience is in the works at 19 Lam Son Square.

The Caravelle Saigon, one of Vietnam’s most iconic hotels, announced this week that it’s beginning a major renovation of its guestrooms in the first week of August. All 303 rooms in the hotel’s Opera Wing, as well as its ballrooms, meeting rooms and function areas will be refreshed over the coming months. The Caravelle’s dining outlets and Heritage Wing suites will remain open for loyal guests. The first of the redesigned spaces will debut in the first quarter of 2019.

The long-awaited renovation is the latest in a series of improvements intended to elevate the historic property to international five-star standards, and cater to today’s modern travellers. While the renovated areas and accommodation will debut a more luxurious, updated aesthetic, Caravelle management said the warm hospitality that’s made the hotel a favourite with travellers will remain at the heart of its appeal.

“The Caravelle has always been a property of distinction, with an unparallelled location and history,” said Michael Robinson, General Manager of Caravelle Saigon. “With this renovation we’ll still retain the hotel’s storied heritage, but we’ll be able to provide a fresh and enhanced experience to our guests and partners in the heart of the city.”

Robinson underscored the fact that it’s business as usual at the hotel’s restaurants and bars. However with dramatically reduced room inventory during the renovation, travellers are advised to book their accommodation in advance over this period.

Among the highlights guests can look forward after the renovation is the unveiling of a new look and feel in the hotel’s rooms and suites. Previously known for an emphasis on comfort and quality, the rooms at Caravelle Saigon will be significantly upgraded and redone with state-of-the-art amenities, expanded bathrooms, and plush interiors.

And while it’s the Opera Wing that will receive the most attention, the second-floor business centre lounge and meeting rooms in the Heritage Wing, which overlook the Saigon Opera House, will also receive a modern makeover as part of the renovations.

“This is an incredibly positive move for the Caravelle Saigon,” said Robinson. “I’m certain these improvements will delight all our guests who call the Caravelle their home away from home.”
