The Times Square Building offers incomparable views of the Saigon River and the HCM City skyline.

The Reverie Saigon ranked fourth on the list of the top 50 best hotels in the world in the annual Readers’ Choice Awards 2017 conducted by the pre-eminent travel publication Condé Nast Traveler. It is the only hotel in Vieät Nam to be included on the annual list.

The recognition was based on a survey of more than 300,000 of the magazine’s readers.

“The Reverie Saigon brought a level of luxury previously unseen in HCM City when it opened in 2015,” the magazine noted.

The opulent Italian decorations and furnishings, the three fine dining restaurants, and “a 157-foot bar that’s so long it stretches from Dong Khoi Street all the way to Nguyen Hue Boulevard two blocks over” are all highlights of the hotel, according to the magazine.

The Spa also garnered a mention for its 13,000 sq-foot space and facilities that include two open-air Jacuzzis and an Olympic-size swimming pool.

Kai Speth, vice president of operations and business performance for the Windsor Property Management Group Corporation (WMC Group) which operates The Reverie Saigon, said the announcement was recognition of the unique vision the hotel presented and its commitment to creating the ultimate guest experience.

“Saigon is taking its rightful place as one of Asia’s leading cities, and upscale travelers expect the very best attainable, not merely the very best in Viet Nam, but the very best anywhere. The announcement is recognition that The Reverie Saigon truly belongs in that category,” Speth said.

Speth also paid tribute to the management and staff at the hotel and the essential role they play. “The entire team at The Reverie Saigon are dedicated to providing the highest standards of service, and they carry out their mission each and every day. Our people are a crucial element in making this one of the best hotels in the world.”
