“Built in 1930 as the French Governor’s official residence, this large three-storey riverside mansion underwent a dramatic makeover in the early 2000s to become the glorious residence that it is today. The location is superb, the outdoor pool is incredibly relaxing, and the spa is well worth a visit. We recommend opting for the river view rooms that have fabulous views from their terraces.”
Set on the banks of the fabled Perfume River, Azerai La Residence surveys the ancient Citadel of Nguyen Emperors just a 10-minute walk from the heart of Hue town. A 15-minute drive from Phu Bai International Airport, the hotel is housed in the former residence of the French Governor, built in 1930.
Its 122 spacious rooms and suites echo former colonial splendour with high ceilings, teak-wooden floors and river and garden-facing terraces. Interiors are light and airy with tiled en suites lit by mandala-like roundel windows.
