Live As Large As An Ambassador In Old Hue

The Resident’s Suite at Vietnam’s luxury La Residence Hotel and Spa in Hue commands the entire upper-storey of the historic, main building. The suite’s French doors and multi-paned windows yield to a spacious, private terrace that provides panoramic views of the Perfume River, the landmark Truong Tien Bridge and the Flagtower Bastion of the 200-year-old Hue Citadel.

The 76-square-meter suite’s distinctive, circular shape and orientation beneath the historic mansion’s cupola makes for a daring and imaginative space. The high-ceilinged main room contains a four-poster bed, a plasma screen television and DVD player, French drapery and art-deco appointments. The bright bathroom includes three sinks, a free-standing tub and a glass shower stall. Its well-lit nooks are furnished with desks and reading lamps.
