News & Press | Caravelle Saigon

NEW guest rooms now available!

Since its opening on Christmas Eve 1959, Caravelle Saigon has gained renown for being at the heart of everything important in this great city. Within its walls, the hotel has been at the center of significant historic and cultural events beginning with its original design hailed at the time as one of the tallest and most modern buildings of its kind in Vietnam. Then, there was its involvement during the war years, followed by cameo roles in popular films and literature. While much of what lies at the heart of Caravelle Saigon is historic, we can no longer say this about our guest rooms. 

The month of May marks the official release of our newly renovated guest rooms and we are so excited to share these with you! Floors 8-12 in our Opera wing are now available to stay and I guarantee you’re in for a treat. At Caravelle Saigon we have always had a deep respect for history but not at the expense of comfort and luxury. The decor in our new five-star guest rooms meets all the expectations of the modern traveler without losing the essence of what makes our hotel a significant landmark in the city’s history. For our regular guests you will appreciate the enlarged bathrooms, additional sound proofing, 49” wall mounted TVs and all the comforts that the modern traveler needs (including multinational universal electrical outlets so no need to bring your adaptors any more).   
For our Caravelle Classique Club members, be sure to reserve your rooms soon as May has some exciting Food and Beverage promotions to top off your stay! 
If anyone knows anything about me they know I love my tacos. Having spent some of my early career in Southern California I developed a love for Mexican cuisine and tacos definitely top the favourites list. This month, to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and all things Mexican we will be having “Taco Tuesdays” throughout the entire month with lamb, pulled pork or shrimp tacos available every Tuesday at Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar. Don’t forget you can add on one of Elliot’s signature Margaritas to top off the meal. On the 5th don your sombero, crack out the tequila and dance like a Mexican as our house band bring the Cinco de Mayo vibe to Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar. 
Adding cause for further celebration in May, we are turning our attention to all the Mums out there this Mother’s Day. My wife Vivian will be experiencing her first Mother’s Day, so I had better make it special for her. Reflections and Nineteen Restaurant are both laying out special menus on May 12th, the perfect way to treat the most important person in your life. If you really want to splash out, take advantage of some of the introductory offers on our new guest rooms and really spoil her.

The names of very few hotels evoke such fond, romantic images, and indeed such anticipation, as 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. And perhaps it’s no coincidence that Air France, which held a stake in the original building, and had its offices there since its opening, had also recently begun operating a fancy new jet airliner of the same name.
