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.
