French Deco palace hotel with a golf course and spa, set in Vietnam’s tranquil Central Highlands
This palatial resort set in the southeastern past of Vietnam's Central Highlands was built under the watchful eye of the French Governor in 1922, and the property’s air of genteel splendor lives on today. The hotel faces a man-made lake; outdoorsy pursuits like golf and tennis are encouraged. Guest rooms feature an abundance of flounces, from canopied beds to heavy damask curtains and Oriental rugs, but there are plenty of modern must-haves among all the nostalgia, like free WiFi and a fitness center. Continuing the Francophile theme, the elegant dining room serves classic French cuisine, while the spa offers a combination of European treatments and Vietnamese techniques.
In the Area
Explore the town of Dalat, with its grand villas and wooden homes reminiscent of the Swiss Alps. Swing by the modern monastery Truc Lam, then check out the rather splendid Bao Dai Summer Palace, an Art Deco gem built in the 1930s by Vietnam's last feudal king. Finish your architectural tour with Dalat’s kookiest dwelling, Hang Nya Guest House, also known as “Crazy House”: one look at its trippy, Gaudi-on-steroids silhouette will tell you why. Afterwards, find out why Dalat is sometimes called “The City of Flowers” at the Dalat Flower Park, where you’ll be surrounded by thousands of blooms including orchids, roses, and hydrangeas.
