If you want a peaceful escape after a day of sightseeing in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), Villa Song is the place for you. This beautiful, French colonial villa is set on the banks of the Saigon River. It’s such a tranquil location, you’d never know you were just 15 minutes by boat from the centre of Vietnam’s largest city. Villa Song runs a free shuttle boat service six times a day to and from the centre, so it’s very convenient for exploring HCMC’s key sights.
The property has a striking spiral staircase and 23 rooms, which have been renovated but retain their colonial décor, with wooden floors and high ceilings. Each room has a unique design, with pictures created by Vietnamese artists. To complete the sense of relaxation, Villa Song has a flower-filled garden with saltwater pool, which is overlooked by the gym and spa. After a day of city sightseeing, you can also enjoy a meal from Villa Song’s bistro, which has tables set right on the riverfront.
