Situated on the upper floors of Vietnam’s highest skyscraper, this iconic 461-meter-high landmark is a proud symbol of modern Vietnam and becomes the inaugural Autograph Collection hotel in the country.
HO CHI MINH CITY – A spectacular landmark on the skyline of Ho Chi Minh City, Vinpearl Landmark 81 – Autograph Collection is a proud symbol of Vietnam’s sparkling new era of prosperity and rise to prominence on the world stage. As the country’s first Autograph Collection hotel, this new urban icon creates immersive moments that leave a lasting impression.
“We are delighted to introduce Vinpearl Landmark 81 – Autograph Collection to the world. Launched by Marriott International, this brand brings impeccable international standards and locally-inspired experiences to Vietnam for the first time. Autograph Collection hotels are only found in the world’s iconic destinations and gateway cities, and Ho Chi Minh City certainly falls into that category. We look forward to elevating the level of hospitality for local and international business and leisure travellers in this vibrant Vietnamese metropolis,” said Goetz Bauer, General Manager, Vinpearl Landmark 81 – Autograph Collection.
A Shining Landmark Above the Clouds
Vinpearl Landmark 81 – Autograph Collection is located from the 47th to 71st floors of Vietnam’s tallest skyscraper, on the west bank of the Saigon River in Ho Chi Minh City’s Binh Thanh district. Inspired by the Vietnamese folk story of Thanh Giong (or Saint Giong), in which a three-year-old child rode into battle, defended his country and defeated the enemy with only a bundle of bamboo. The Landmark 81 tower proudly stands as strong as bamboo and as a symbol of Vietnamese national pride. Rising 81 stories from street level, it can be viewed from all parts of this bustling metropolis and its crowning spire is so high that it is sometimes shrouded in clouds. Completed in 2018, this impressive edifice also houses an upmarket lifestyle mall, an ice skating rink, a cinema, kids’ play center and multiple dining venues, all surrounded by parks, shops, restaurants, bars and just a short distance from the city’s cultural and historical attractions.
Within this sky-high sanctuary, the hotel’s 223 rooms and suites (starting from the 49th floor) all feature floor-to-ceiling windows that allow guests to peer down from the clouds and gaze out across the city’s skyline and Saigon River. Modern interior design is seamlessly blended with expressive artistic flourishes, contemporary Vietnamese aesthetics, a signature scent and state-of-the-art amenities. Perched on the 68th floor, the 488-square meter Presidential Suite is a haven of luxury, and the 71st floor club lounge – the highest in Vietnam – offers exclusive services for guests staying in club floor rooms and suites.
