The Reverie Saigon, opened just two years ago and renowned for its opulent Italian aesthetics, marble, silk and spa, has been named the fourth Best Hotel in the World by Condé Nast Traveler in its annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

The recognition is the most prestigious for a Vietnamese hotel in the Condé Nast Traveler awards, which are widely hailed as one of the top two awards in the travel industry.

While no other hotel from Vietnam claimed a spot among the world’s Top 50, La Residence Hue Hotel & Spa groomed its placement on the list with a No. 8 finish on the Top Hotels in Asia list and the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi claimed No. 21 spot.

Each has been a fixture on the list over the last several years.

The Park Hyatt Saigon rounded out recognition for hotels in Vietnam with a No. 18 finish on the Top 25 hotels list.

On the resort side, four properties in Vietnam placed in the annual contest: Banyan Tree Lang Co (No. 6), InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula (No. 8), Angsana Lang Co (No. 11) and Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai (No. 37).

Announced in New York on October 17, Condé Nast Traveler’s 30th annual compendium is the result of a voting process that began April 1 and ended July 1, with the participation of more than 300,000 readers.

The awards’ voters considered more than 7,320 hotels and resorts around the world, casting ballots from desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

Two years ago, just 128,000 readers participated in the awards process, up from 77,000 the year before.

In 2016, Condé Nast Traveler took charge of the voting process from an outside agency.

Consequently, the median age of voters dropped from late-60s in 2015 to mid-40s last year and late-30s this year.
