La Résidence Hôtel & Spa, Hue, Vietnam

Hue is a treasure house of an imperial city with royal tombs, majestic palaces, intricate temples and – rather fittingly – La Résidence Hotel and Spa.

You stroll past the nine tripod cauldrons of the Nguyen Dynasty, or the Imperial Citadel of Hue, and you wonder. What would the original residents of the Thien Mu Pagoda have thought about La Résidence?

Doubtless they would have been impressed with the wonders of its modern facilities. But would they have been inspired by the Art Deco architecture in the hotel’s lavish spa? They would have been soothed by – and perhaps have recognised some – of the  treatments used today. But would they have been captivated by the design of the rooms, inspired by local materials? And what would they have made of the lavish restaurants and the international cuisine?

One thing is certain. They would definitely approve of the hotel’s close proximity to all of Hue’s ancient wonders.
