HÔTEL DES ARTS SAIGON, MGALLERY COLLECTION crowned the best 2017 World Luxury Hotel Awards, winning for “Luxury Architecture Design Hotel” in Southeast Asia for its modern romantic design, world class facilities and luxury offerings.
True to its name Hôtel des Arts Saigon, “the hotel of arts”, guests can enjoy their staycation in a true haven of arts, style and culture. It is a fusion of the French flair with the elegance and romance of Indochina. Scott Whittaker, a Bangkok-based Australian architect is the one behind its stunning design. The inspiration behind the hotel design concept was the instropective feminine beauty from the private curated art collection of its owner. The outline of the brief was to depict a beautiful woman with a sad but romantic past, that evokes a feeling like you are coming home to a place you’ve never visited before: exotic but comfortable...
Each of the restaurants inside the hotel also has its own identity and spirit. One of them is the iconic Social Club restaurant – put together by Japan’s acclaimed design firm, Super Potato. The restaurant has been built around a stunning Victorian Bar from the late 1910s and its vintage, classy and cosy ambiance. Everything has to be just right, and if most guests won’t even notice the design, they will simply feel gracious, contented and even excited from the moment they step in this chic inspiring realm.
"Hotels are very much stage sets for living. Although the design is important itself as something to discern, we aim to create substance for guests to feel - a neoclassic design in which each detail is beautiful and inspiring.” Shared Carl Gagnon, General Manager of Hôtel des Arts Saigon.
Inspired design is about reinventing our world in smart and beautiful ways. It is about creativity as an invitation to see the world anew. It is about hotels where every space is considered, every attention thought out; hotels like those in the MGallery collections. They are inspired by one of the Collection's three hallmark atmospheres: "Heritage" hotels charged with history reflecting their historic roots, "Signature" hotels that mirror an aesthetic universe and style inspired by a personality who contributed to their creation or decoration, and "Serenity" hotels that offer guests a haven of relaxation in a seaside, rural, mountain or urban setting. All the hotels in the Collection invite guests to experience “Memorable Moments.”
