The names of very few hotels evoke such fond, romantic images, and indeed such anticipation, as The Caravelle. Its breezy sound recalls its inspiration: the Iberian caravelas, or as the French called them, caravelles fast, light 15th-century sailing ships that explored the world in search of foreign trade, adventure and new horizons.

The Caravelle has been at the center of Saigon society since the hotel was opened in 1959. In 1998, an elegant 24-storey tower was built as a complement to the original 10-storey building. With commanding views of the city and an enviable location opposite the Opera House, the landmark hotel is at the heart of a city once renown as the Pearl of the Orient. Caravelle was home to many members of the international press corps during the Vietnam War.

Nowadays, the hotel, Caravelle Saigon with its signature services is still the iconic landmark status in the heart of Saigon. In order to offer the guests with the best experience while staying in Saigon as part of its commitments, Caravelle has been taking a top-to-toe enhancement programme to upgrade the property to an upscale and luxurious hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.

Opened in 1959, the 5-star Caravelle Saigon features stylish French and Vietnamese architecture, an outdoor pool and non-smoking rooms with free Wi-Fi. Only 50 metres from the famous Opera House in Ho Chi Minh City, the eco-friendly hotel also has a rooftop bar with live music performances. Elegantly decorated in soothing neutrals, the air-conditioned rooms feature full-length windows which overlook the city or Saigon River. Modern comforts like a flat-screen TV, a pillow menu and 24-hour room service are included in all rooms. Caravelle Saigon is within 1.1 km from the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theatre and Ben Thanh Market. Car rentals and parking are available at an extra charge. Guests may enjoy a refreshing workout at Caravelle's gym, followed by a relaxing massage at Kara Spa. Cultural tours and cooking classes can also be arranged at the hotel's tour desk, while the first floor Club Vegas game room provides late-night entertainment. International meals are served in a casual buffet style at Restaurant Nineteen, or in fine dining style at Reflections Restaurant. Cocktails and wine are available at Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar and Martini Bar. Grab a cup of coffee/tea, and some pastries at Café de l’Opera when you're on the go.
