Explore Spa opened

Located on the 9th Floor, Explore Spa by Le Méridien (3C Ton Duc Thang, D1; 6287 6697 or 6263 6688 ext. 6950) is an oasis of comfort offering a range of services from aromatherapy to signature massages using marine-based products and local ingredients across signature treatments.

Guests are invited on a peaceful underwater vacation when resting at the relaxation lounge, saunas and Jacuzzi rooms.
