Bottom Line

Although there are more luxurious hotels in Ho Chi Minh, stately Villa Sông Saigon is second to none in charm, elegance, and style. With beautiful French colonial architecture, top-notch service, gorgeous rooms, candlelit dinners by the river, and an exclusive vibe, this boutique is a wonderful pick for a romantic getaway. Its location across the river of central HCMC is secluded and tranquil, but a little out of the way for those who want to explore the sights; fortunately, the hotel offers a free shuttle bus to and from the city center.

A gorgeous boutique with stylish decor and an exclusive vibe

Housed in a beautifully renovated French colonial villa tucked away behind lush gardens, Villa Sông Saigon wows at first sight. Past the delicate wrought-iron gates and manicured garden bursting with plants and trees, an inviting patio with tables, chairs, and parasols welcomes guests to this quiet oasis. Hardwood floors and dark wood furniture stand out against the white walls and shelves dotted with local artwork in the lobby. The space is decorated with a tasteful mix of beautiful colonial style and contemporary accents that make it feel luxurious and elegant without being stuffy. This eclectic yet stylish look continues in the hotel’s 23 rooms, all featuring high-end amenities. The restaurant is located in the rear part of the property, overlooking the river, making for a tranquil setting for a quiet meal or romantic dinner. 

From the free shuttle service to central Ho Chi Minh to the lovely pool and all-day breakfast, everything here is intended to offer the most relaxing experience possible. Families looking to stay in a similarly quiet location may want to consider Saigon Domaine Luxury Residences, located a little bit north of the property and offering beautiful multi-room apartments.


In a serene location across the river from central HCMC

Villa Sông Saigon is located in an upscale residential area northeast and across the river from central Ho Chi Minh. The neighborhood is known for being home to many expats, and there are many beautiful homes nearby. A short walk away, guests can find a couple of restaurants, shops, and bars, but there is little else to do here. District 1 attractions are a 20- to 25-minute drive away depending on driving conditions, but the property offers free shuttle service to the Saigon Opera House, which is near all other major sights in HCMC.


Beautiful rooms with elegant decor and high-end amenities

Every room at Villa Sông Saigon has been tastefully decorated with a mix of colonial-style furniture and contemporary accents. Polished hardwood floors, white walls and closets, ceiling fans, elegant headboards, and foot-of-bed benches make for elegant classic spaces; up-to-date technologies, local artwork, and sleek bathrooms with walk-in rain showers and dark walls add a modern twist. Each room has a couple of small unique touches, but all have LCD TVs, free Wi-Fi, minibars stocked with freebies, and either ultra-comfy king beds or two twins. Suites are equipped with Nespresso machines, Apple TVs, and deep soaking tubs. Most rooms also have pretty balconies or terraces with at least two armchairs and a table on each.


A lovely pool, romantic restaurant, small spa, and free shuttle to HCMC

Surrounded by frangipani and manicured lawns, the pool is a quiet spot for a lazy day in the sun. Comfy padded loungers, parasols, and round lounge beds with pillows line the pool, making it stylish and relaxing. The spa offers signature massages and treatments for couples in a serene space with appealing decor. A la carte, all-day breakfast is served at Bistro Sông Vie, a serene restaurant overlooking the river, and candlelit dinners and drinks at the outdoor bar are popular among couples here. The hotel also offers three meeting rooms and a tiny fitness center with huge windows, three machines, and free weights. Great freebies include Wi-Fi, shuttle service to central Ho Chi Minh, minibar items, and on-site parking.
