Park Hyatt Saigon: Marrying Glam and Relaxation

0

A midnight flight from Manila forced us to stay all night that resulted in a sleepy arrival in Tan Son Nhat Airport. Early morning arrival in Park Hyatt Saigon was not an issue because we were allowed to check-in, thanks to a non-fully booked day. Around 4 in the morning, when we decided to call it a night and rest in prep for a tiring weekend in Saigon.

At 3 AM, though only a few lights brighten the lobby of Park Hyatt Saigon, one can sense the opulence of the hotel interiors. We waited at the dimly-lit yet elegant Park Lounge while one of my friends approached the front-desk for our check-in procedures. In no time, we found our way to our Park King room on the 9th floor.

Park King Room Accommodation

A French-colonial vibe welcomed us the moment we stepped into our room. It wasn’t a rustic old mood but a charming and elegant ambiance. It was too tiring to notice tiny details of conveniences offered by our room that later were discovered during our stay.

Gentle colors with a touch of gold exude the room interiors. Massive king-sized bed for two people, but can actually fit three people, is the centerpiece of the room. The following morning, we were greeted by Saigon light and signaled us to get out of bed. Park King Room doesn’t have the floor-to-ceiling windows yet striking louvered windows that made us appreciate the tastefully decorated room.
