Thao Dien Village

Boutique hotel in Ho Chi Minh City

Combining restaurants, a bar and a poolside spa centre, this riverside property is a good option if you're keen to escape from the big-city bustle. Verdant surroundings and wooden pavilions create an ambience reminiscent of Bali. Just note that Vietnamese weddings are often held on weekends, and that downtown Saigon is around 30 minutes by taxi from District 2.
