The first Vietnamese property by award-winning Capella Hotels and Resorts, Capella Hanoi reveals fresh epicurean encounters and Instagrammable moments including Champagne brunches and afternoon teas

(Hanoi, Vietnam – 04 May 2021): Capella Hanoi, the new art-inspired hotel in the heart of Vietnam’s capital city, is promising to transport local residents and expats to the boulevards of Paris with a choice of epicurean experiences and stylish staycations. Designed by Bill Bensley, the acclaimed architect behind the 2020 World’s Best Hotel¹, Capella Ubud, Bali, Capella Hanoi blends the grace of the French capital with authentic Vietnamese culture. With a calendar of gastronomic gatherings to look forward to, including blissful brunches and artistic afternoon teas, this chic boutique hotel is set to become the talk of the town.

Located just steps away from the iconic Hanoi Opera House, Capella Hanoi has been crafted as a “petite auberge” – a rendezvous spot for the greatest opera singers, composers and artists of their generation. Nestled in the colonial-influenced Old Quarter, close to Hoan Kiem Lake, this immaculate urban retreat lets guests savour the spirit of France without leaving Vietnam. With avant-garde art, design and architecture at every turn, this sophisticated hotel will inspire many Instagrammable moments and become the destination of choice for discerning guests.

Diva’s Brunch showcases the finest cuisine from East and West

Sunday Brunch with the Diva

Diva’s Brunch invites guests to revel in the timeless pleasures of fine food and great company with an upbeat culinary encounter at Backstage, the hotel’s restaurant that showcases modern, locally-influenced cuisine amid a dramatic backdrop of operatic costumes. Highlights include charcuterie boards, freshly-baked breads, raw seafood and caviar, as well as Josper-grilled meats and seafood, such as Berkshire pork ribs and Nha Trang lobster, accompanied by delectable desserts and creative cocktails.

This joyous gastronomic gathering will be staged on Sunday 2 May 2021, making it perfect for the long weekend celebrations, and then again on 9 May, 6 June, 4 July and 1 August. Diva’s Brunch is priced at VND 2,300,000++ per person, including soft drinks, juice and iced tea. Premium beverage packages, including an option with free-flowing Champagne, are also available.

In addition, to enrich the culinary experience of its guests, Capella Hanoi has introduced the new “Breakfast Vernissage” promotion. Every morning during breakfast at Backstage, the hotel will showcase local crafts, such as Hanoi breakfast specialities by Madame Anh Tuyet, a coffee cupping class from Ms. Thi, dzo paper making, lacquer painting, weaving and more. This package is available from 30 April to 2 May 2021, priced at US$50++ per person, and cannot be combined with à la carte breakfast.

The Artist’s Afternoon Tea

A feast for the eyes and the palate, The Artist’s Afternoon Tea at Backstage promises a sublime selection of savoury bites, such as slow-cooked wagyu sirloin sandwiches, Loch Fyne salmon and pumpkin crème brûlée, along with sweet delights such as handmade scones, petit fours, macaroons and Sarah Bernhardt’s cookies. Pair each skilfully crafted bite with premium teas and coffees from the East and West.

The Artist’s Afternoon Tea is staged every day from 3pm to 5pm, priced at VND 680,000++ per person or VND 980,000++ per person with a glass of Tattinger Champagne.

For guests who want to extend their culinary sojourn with an overnight stay, Capella Hanoi offers a collection of 47 themed rooms and suites, each of which is individually styled with original operatic artefacts and custom portraits by prolific artist Kate Spencer. The suites effortlessly weave an alluring aesthetic with bespoke services and state-of-the-art amenities, while Parisian balconies allow guests to gaze down on the tree-lined avenues and soak up the cosmopolitan neighbourhood vibe. Crowning the hotel, four spectacular Opera Suites open out onto private alfresco terraces.

During their stay, guests can sip bohemian cocktails and Opera Punches at Diva’s Lounge, which pays tribute to the leading ladies of the 1920s, embark on expert-led cultural classes at The Living Room, the social heart of the hotel, or simply unwind at Auriga Spa, a wellness sanctuary with couples’ treatment suites, saunas, steam baths, a fitness centre and La Grotta, an indoor pool that resembles a haven for opera singers to rest their voices.
