The world of the noble metal
The 5-star hotel offers 342 spacious rooms. The staff greets guests at the luxurious jewel gate and escorts them to the gilded lobby. The royal style is in everything — in furniture, decor, as well as in decorations and interior elements. Even the tableware is made of gold. What's more, a stylish swimming pool made of the precious metal awaits guests on the rooftop.

The hotel gained the status of "the most luxurious hotel in Southeast Asia". According to its owners, the precious metal not only gives aesthetic pleasure, but also has a beneficial effect on the moral and physical condition of people. It has a number of beneficial properties, for example, it enhances the protective functions of the body and does not cause allergies.
The owner of the hotel, Nguyen Huu Duong, said that he built the building from the metal of the kings in memory of his colleagues who died during the Vietnam War. Thus, he paid tribute to the heroes who were worthy of all the rewards of this world. In the future, he plans to continue the series of "golden" hotels in Ho Chi Minh City and in the resort part of Vietnam.
