This esteemed and credible award spans 20 categories and 15 countries and territories, with 200,000 votes from Travel + Leisure readers. During the awards night, Travel + Leisure announced six award categories for the most luxurious and distinctive accommodations in Việt Nam.

Capella Hanoi - The best city hotel in Việt Nam

Ranked number one in the list of the very best city hotels in Việt Nam, Capella Hanoi was launched in 2020 by investor Sun Group.

The magazine described the hotel as an artistic palace designed by the US design wizard - Bill Bensley - who was inspired by the Hà Nội Opera House, a tourism symbol of the city.

The hotel boasts a collection of art pieces and thousands of pieces of opera memorabilia collected from across the world. These items are elegantly displayed in glass cases in the Backstage restaurant on the ground floor and along the corridors connecting the 47 rooms.

One key feature that secured Capella Hanoi’s top position is its Michelin-starred restaurant, Hibana by Koki, a Japanese restaurant serving the top culinary art of teppanyaki. The hotel also offers a stunning fitness centre and an indoor pool, adorned with intricate chandeliers.

The blend between the glamorous beauty of the golden age of the 1920s and the elegance of opera art, in every captivating detail at the Capella Hanoi.

InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort - The best beach resort in Việt Nam

Travel + Leisure gives high praise to this resort, which opened in 2012 and is also the 'brainchild' of architect Bill Bensley, who personally designed and supervised its renovation after ten years in 2022.

The InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort features 200 rooms, three pools and a private beach, amid the stunning nature of the Sơn Trà Peninsula.
