Overview

La Residence is an elegant, colonial-style property located in the former royal capital city of Hue, in central Vietnam. This exclusive hotel offers 122 stylish rooms and suites, plus a wonderful saltwater swimming pool, a spa, a gym, tennis and basketball courts, an art gallery, and a boutique, all within beautiful landscaped gardens on the banks of the Perfume River overlooking the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hue’s Imperial Citadel. La Residence will appeal to travellers with a higher budget seeking a deluxe stay and select service in a prime central location.

Recently listed in Conde Nast’s Top 20 best hotels in Southern Asia, this landmark property was constructed in 1930 as a residence for the former Governor of Vietnam, and art deco architecture and fittings and colonial design influences resonate throughout. The hotel restaurant, Le Parfum, offers both indoor and alfresco dining, with a gourmet menu spanning French and Vietnamese cuisine. In-room private dining can also be arranged. Le Gouverneur bar offers light meals and refreshments, and its alfresco terrace is a great spot for a sundowner or a nightcap. Further communal areas include a library, a chic boutique, an art gallery, and a fully equipped gym. Beauty treatments and massages are available at the hotel spa, which features a Jacuzzi, sauna, and steam room. Outside, the verdant gardens house a glorious saltwater pool, with light meals and refreshments available throughout the day at the adjacent pool bar. Additional facilities include tennis and basketball courts, table tennis, billiards, boules, and complimentary bicycle hire.

Accommodation comprises 122 guest rooms and suites, all tastefully appointed with art deco style fittings. Each room has a double or twin beds and a spacious ensuite bathroom, along with satellite TV, hot drink facilities, complimentary Wi-Fi, and 24 hour room service. Many of the rooms boast a private balcony or terrace, with either city or river views. Room sizes range from Superior to the slightly more spacious Deluxe rooms, which include a comfortable lounge area. Seven suites are also available with significantly increased living space including study and lounge areas, and a generous balcony or terrace. Largest of all, the penthouse Resident Suite boasts an extensive veranda with panoramic views and comes with a separate lounge and bedroom, and a generous bathroom with a freestanding bathtub and separate shower.

Children are extremely welcome at La Residence. Guests under 12 years of age stay free of charge when sharing a bed with parents, with complimentary cots provided upon request. Extra beds are available, subject to additional charge. The hotel offers a number of connecting rooms, which are ideal for families and larger groups. A Kids Club is available for younger guests, and a babysitting service can be arranged.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
