10 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

In the heart of Old Saigon, there’s a wrought-iron footbridge with a charming name — Cầu Mống, or Rainbow Bridge — that was built by Gustav Eiffel in 1882, just a few years before the French architect designed his his iconic tower for the 1889 Exposition Universelle. Today it’s a historical landmark and a favorite venue for photographers and romantics. It’s also the starting point for your stay at An Lâm Retreats Saigon River. The hotel is located twenty minutes away from here, mind you, but you’ll get there by boat, and that boat departs from Cầu Mống Pier.

Getting there is half the fun, as they say, and you might agree with the sentiment as the speedboat zips along the tributary and merges onto the Saigon River. But that’s before you’ve actually seen the hotel. A short ride upstream, on a curving, lushly forested stretch of shoreline, you’ll spot the wooden dock of An Lâm Retreats Saigon River. That trip was nice, you might think, but it’s decidedly not half as fun as the experience of staying the night at the destination. The boat, after all, didn’t have a personal butler or a private plunge pool. Or a king-sized four-poster bed with a canopy.

Quiet and elegantly appointed, An Lâm Saigon River has the feel of a private retreat with the amenities of a luxury resort. It’s relatively small, with suites and villas (they call them “sanctuaries”) generously spaced out amid tropical gardens. All are outfitted in natural wood and stone, with private sun decks facing the river or forest, and the occasional modern armchair or table designed by An Lâm. (Lâm is the hotel’s owner, but in another life, he was a furniture maker, and the hotel was his private residence.) Wi-fi access and in-room entertainment systems with film libraries come standard, as does round-the-clock butler service. Pool Suites, as the name says, come with private plunge pools, and on the highest end of the An Lâm spectrum are a pair of villas whose assets are self-explanatory: the Riverfront Pool Villa and the Sunset Villa.

Also riverfront is Tram’s Cookery, an indoor-outdoor restaurant with Vietnamese and international dishes made from local and organic ingredients. It’s a fine place to unwind after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping in the city – the speedboat leaves for Old Saigon three times daily — or to rouse yourself after a busy afternoon of lying on a circular chaise lounge beside the swimming pool.
