The five-star Caravelle Saigon in Vietnam, located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, recently launched its 26th floor event space, boasting unrivalled views of the cityscape and Saigon River.
Called Events on 26, the 215m2 space has been covered with a grass turf and decorated with fairy lights. Guests must walk a red carpet, up a staircase, and through a skyline corridor – which meeting planners can also choose to decorate – before emerging onto the hotel’s rooftop.
Events on 26 can hold up to 150 people for standing cocktails, and up to 60 people for sit-down dinners. Event planners can delight their guests with gourmet canapes, live food stations serving international cuisine and imported meats, or set dinner menus, as created by the hotel’s chefs.
Now in its opening phase, a Standard Package for the venue is priced at VND 20,000,000++ (US$880++), and includes the use of the 26th floor for the evening, a red-carpet welcome from the elevator on the 24th floor, spotlights, plants and fairy lights, ambient music and speakers. The property can also arrange for add-ons such as projectors, fireworks, barbecue grills, bands and stages.
From now until the Tet Holidays (Vietnamese New Year), a special introductory 20 per cent discount will be given for all bookings.
