La Residence Hue Hotel & Spa, Hue
- Award-winning spa
- Outdoor pool
This boutique style hotel is in a beautiful setting on the Perfume River, overlooking the former Imperial Citadel. Its stylish Art Deco interiors and luxury spa will make it hard to leave.
This former governor’s residence has been carefully restored to retain its colonial style, while you’ll find flourishes of art deco design here and there. From its prime position on the banks of the Perfume River, offering gorgeous views of the Imperial Citadel, the main sights of Hue like Bao Quoc Temple and Dong Ba Market are within easy walking distance of La Residence. All stylish bedrooms enjoy views of the city or river, with spacious terraces where you can soak up the sights and sounds of Hue. We’d recommend a river view room but be warned – they book up quickly.
The award-winning spa is the real star here, with 7 treatment rooms and a wide range of therapies to indulge your senses if you’re in need of pampering after a day exploring the city. Meanwhile, the outdoor saltwater pool is perfect for an evening dip before dinner.
The riverside restaurant, ‘Le Parfum’, serves a range of local and international cuisine, and the seven-course tasting menu is particularly exquisite – be sure to book in advance. Retire to Le Gouverneur Bar for an after-dinner cocktail, overlooking the hotel’s tropical gardens.
The sumptuous spa is pure bliss. With so many soothing therapies on offer it’s hard to decide which to plump for, but we’d recommend the Signature Spa Package for the ultimate treat.
