Info : An Lam Saigon River
An Lam Saigon River is stunning new hotel, opened December 2011 on the banks on the Saigon River, only 15 minutes away from District 1 Saigon by speedboat. It's more of a private residence as opposed to a hotel, and you'll only find 15 individually designed rooms, situated in 7 traditional converted houses.
Each room is exclusively designed with a contemporary, yet Vietnamese feel, and features all the mod con's you'd expect of a luxury property. The spacious bathrooms feature rain showers, huge stone bathtubs and large vanity areas - many extend inside and outside. In most of the guest rooms you'll also find a secluded private pool, some big enough to do laps.
There is a main pool which is surrounded by a large sala area and lush tropical gardens, and you can eat snacks at the pool bar, and have an evening cocktail, or eat at either the indoor and outdoor restaurants. This isn't the sort of hotel where you go out for dinner, you'll eat most of your meals here. The hotel has its own private spa situated in peaceful gardens.
Only 15 minutes by speedboat from the centre of Saigon, and even better, only 45 mins by boat from Cu Chi tunnels - you can really use this hotel as an escapism or base in Saigon.
We feel best to combine with a stay in the city centre, and then come here either before or after to unwind. You'll also get to see great local river life, which means you don’t necessarily have to visit the Mekong Delta.
This property really is quite unique in southern Vietnam, and will set the trend for future boutique style retreats in off the beaten track locations.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.

We were very well looked after during our holiday. Transportation, communication and general organisation (no emergency backup required!) were very good.
