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.
How to Get There
I’ve been to Dalat a few times but never really found a hotel that I really liked. Till now !! Totally loved this OTT palace style hotel with 4 poster beds, fake 15th century paintings, gold bathrooms, silk bedsheets, gold tea cups & lush carpets. Yes basically everything was in gold!! I would normally not even consider a hotel like this but to be honest the location, gardens, staff uniforms, service, price and over the top decor was just fabulous. Come here to relax and with a little imagination you will feel that you are staying in a Royal Hunting Castle deep in the woods somewhere in France or even in a Sultans private estate! It’s very very OTT, some might think it’s awful but I thought it was just fabulous !
Nice view, staff friendly, hospitality, luxury room . Specially Mr Hùng (Security) he is the best staff I ever seen. Congratulation. This is the first time I stayed here. Hope I come back with my family.
Lovely Hotel with friendly staff and delicious Food. The location was excellent,near to the Chicken Church and Lam Vien square. We was so happy. But There are something old, should to be upgrade! We will return if have opportunity!
