Salinda Resort Phu Quoc Island
Salinda Resort Phu Quoc Island was awarded with Vietnam's Leading Boutique Beach Resort title.
Set in Phu Quoc, Vietnam's largest island off the southern province of Kien Giang, a few steps from Long Beach, Salinda Resort Phu Quoc Island offers accommodation with a restaurant, bar, fitness center, garden, private beach area and free bikes.
It features 121 luxury rooms, suites, and villas designed in contemporary style with an added local touch that creates an almost seamless transition from the inside out.
Each room category has unique wall art, showcasing the beauty of Vietnam and harmoniously blending luxury amenities with the natural wonders of the island.
Azerai La Residence
Azerai La Residence in Hue, Vietnam's former capital, received Vietnam's Leading Boutique Hotel title.

Set on a two and a half-hectare site with 200 meters of frontage on the fabled Huong (Perfume) River, Azerai La Residence, Hue has 122 rooms and suites. The colonial mansion at the heart of the resort was built in 1930s as part of the residence of the French Resident Superieure.
The mansion’s distinctive facade, its long horizonal lines and nautical flourishes are hallmark of the streamline moderne school of art deco architecture.
Its two complementary wings, built in 2005, are contemporary in design yet echo elements of art deco aesthetics and embrace an expansive tropical garden and salt-water swimming pool.

Legacy Yen Tu - MGallery in Uong Bi town, Quang Ninh province was granted Vietnam's Leading Boutique Resort title.
The resort offers five-star accommodation with a garden, bar and terrace. It features handcrafted materials and ancient construction methods by nearby villagers living in the surroundings for generations, creating a harmonious and pure atmosphere right from within the local community.
The nearest airport is Cat Bi International Airport in Hai Phong city, 49 kilometers from the hotel.
