Discover Capella Hanoi – Best New Hotel In Asia Pacific

On September 7, Capella Hanoi has been honorably selected in DestinAsian Magazine’s Luxe List 2021 for the Best New Hotels in Asia Pacific.

The Luxe List is an annual collection of the best new hotels and resorts in the Asia-Pacific region. Started in October 2004, it’s now a leading indicator of which new properties in the region merit the attention of discerning travelers. Each hotel is visited by DestinAsian roving (and masked) network of reporters and appraised on the strength of their design, service, location, and value. It’s been a tough 12 months for hotels in the region, but that didn’t prevent the debuts of a number of exceptional properties including Capella Hanoi.

Capella Hanoi has officially opened its doors, ushering in a new era of art and elegance in the heart of Vietnam’s vibrant capital city. Located just steps away from the iconic Hanoi Opera House, this beautiful boutique hotel has been dreamt up as a “petite auberge” – a rendezvous spot for the greatest opera singers, composers and artists of a glamorous bygone age.

Four statues holding up the ceiling are called carotids; a common theatre prop at the turn of the century and believed to have been on stage at one of the first productions held at the Hanoi Opera House.

Diva’s Lounge meanwhile, pays tribute to the leading ladies of the 1920s with bohemian cocktails and Opera Punches, accompanied by Diva’s Bar bites.

As you walk down the hallway to the signature restaurant, Backstage, you will be greeted by a dazzling mural of paparazzi on the hunt for off-duty performers.

All-day restaurant - Backstage presents a magnificent backdrop of vibrant murals and stunning costumes curated from opera’s greatest performances.

Expect bold renditions of Northern Vietnamese cuisine that pay respect to long-forgotten traditions and local seasonal produce while championing modern culinary techniques creating the perfect Hanoi hotel restaurant experience.

Previously, Capella Hanoi has also been honored many times by prestigious magazines and awards. Most recently, it has been recognized as one of the world’s 100 greatest places by TIME.

Melding Vietnamese design elements with a theatrical atmosphere, Capella Hanoi’s Auriga Spa features a stunning Vietnamese imperial décor. Auriga Spa has also been nominated in AHEAD Awards 2021 as “Asia’s Best Spa Design”.

The 47 themed rooms and suites at Capella Hanoi (ranging from a generous 35 sqm to an expansive 194 sqm) are individually styled with original operatic artefacts and custom portraiture art by prolific artist Kate Spencer, and equipped with bespoke services and state-of-the-art amenities.

In addition, Capella Hotels and Resorts has once again been recognised in Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards as the No.2 Hotel Brand in the World for the second consecutive year. In the next four years, as the ultra-luxury hospitality brand is on track to expand rapidly with planned properties in Sydney, Maldives, South Korea, USA, Japan and the Middle East.
