Hit the high note with a stay in the opulent splendour of operatic-themed Capella Hanoi in the city’s French-influenced Old Quarter.
Conveniently placed on a peaceful boulevard along Hoàn Kiếm Lake and only steps away from Hanoi Opera House, this theatrically styled hotel will surprise and delight you in equal measure.
Designed by architect, Bill Bensley, the Capella Hanoi has 47 thematic suites which gives a nod to the legendary operatic performances and actors after the final curtain call.
You will feel on top of the world in the rooftop Jacuzzi of the Grand Opera Suite, while each of the bespoke suites are adorned with a potpourri of memorabilia including artworks from Kate Spencer. The iron-wrought French balcony of each room is the perfect place to enjoy panoramic views of this buzzing capital.
Step back to the Roaring Twenties when you dine out at the hotel’s two restaurants. Backstage provides a fusion of authentic Northern Vietnamese flavours with modern touches while The Hudson Rooms is home of oysters and caviar by day and the finest whisky by night. Sample the local sake in Koki an imitate bar below stairs.
During your stay enjoy authentic experiences from tai chi to lacquer painting which can be organised by the ‘Capella Curates’ who are on hand to ensure you have authentic memories of your time in Hanoi.
After a day sightseeing retreat to the tranquillity of Auriga Spa where you can choose from a menu of holistic treatments. You also have access to the indoor pool and well-equipped fitness centre.
