La Residence Hotel & Spa
NEW YORK — La Residence Hotel & Spa cemented its reputation as one of Asia’s most distinguished hotels last month when readers of Condé Nast Traveler lauded the hotel as the 14th best in Asia.
La Residence was one of just five hotels in Vietnam to land on a list of Asia’s top 20 hotels. Likewise, the hotel won placement on the same top-20 list last year, continuing a streak that began all the way back in 2007 when the hotel was elevated by the same magazine on its coveted Hot List.
“In the same way that replicating results is a test of a theory’s legitimacy in science, we look at our placement on this list again this year as confirmation that we’re doing a whole bunch of things right,” said the hotel’s general manager Phan Trong Minh.
Two years ago, La Residence rated the No. 15 spot on Condé Nast Traveler’s list of top hotels in Southern Asia. In 2015, the hotel was No. 13 on the Condé Nast list.
Announced in New York on Oct. 9, Condé Nast Traveler’s 31st annual compendium is the result of a voting process that stretched from spring to summer, with participation by more than 429,000 readers.
The magazine’s editors reported that its voters preferences were for hotels like La Residence: “Quiet. Small. Subdued. This is what travelers seem to be craving this year.”
