Vietnam – Park Hyatt Saigon will be undergoing a luxury upgrade of all facilities and guestrooms in 2014 to epitomise the French colonial residential feel and boost the hotel’s positioning in Saigon.

Malaysian interior designer EDC is set to create a French-inspired ambience blended with modern conveniences and Vietnamese touches.

The 244-room hotel is expected to close from February 17 to April 2, and reopen on April 3. Restorative works to public areas will be ongoing until November, with intermittent noise expected from 9 to 5 daily.

Park Hyatt Saigon includes a pillar-less ballroom with a drive-in vehicular access, two restaurants serving Italian, and Vietnamese seafood and Western steak respectively.
