Vietnam has a new and unique luxury hotel which has recently open to the public. The new Vinpearl Landmark 81, Autograph Collection, is located inside the country’s tallest building, Landmark 81, in Ho Chi Minh City. The hotel boasts 461 meters high and overlooks the Saigon River in the eastern stretch of Vietnam’s biggest city.
There are 223 rooms and suites spread across the property with the most luxurious of the group being the 68th-floor penthouse suite, which is marketed as both the largest and highest presidential suite in all of Vietnam. The 488-square-meter suite features two marble bathrooms, sleeping space for up to five people as well as a private chef and mixologist on request. Every single room, not limited to the suites, has floor-to-ceiling glass windows to allow for maximum enjoyment of the surroundings.
2. Food & spa
The hotel’s restaurant — Oriental Pearl — serves phở, the noodle soup that is arguably the country’s most famous dish – and upscales it by using wagyu beef. It’s café, aptly named The Cloud, offers traditional Vietnamese coffees and locally-made chocolates. Also inside the hotel, tourists can enjoy a spa experience in the Akoya, named after a traditional Vietnamese pearl that symbolizes beauty.
“We look forward to elevating the level of hospitality for local and international business and leisure travelers in this vibrant Vietnamese metropolis,” said the Vinpearl’s General Manager, Goetz Bauer, quoted by CNN.

3. Marriott and Vinpearl
The new hotel is the result of a strategic agreement between Marriott International and Vinpearl, Vietnam’s largest hospitality and leisure chain, celebrated in June 2022. The project included the conversion and development of 2,200 rooms across eight hotels in Vietnam.
“We are thrilled to be working with Vinpearl to accelerate our growth in Vietnam,” said Rajeev Menon, President, Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China), Marriott International after sealing the agreement. “With the country’s solid foundation for a resilient economy, and continuous growth of its infrastructure especially in the tourism sector, we are confident this collaboration will enable us to better cater to our guests’ needs.”
The hotel occupies 34 floors of the 81-floor skyscraper and is located about 11 km from Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Vietnam’s biggest and busiest airport.
