Villa Song Hotel
Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)

Villa Song is a charming boutique getaway prefect for those seeking a quiet sanctuary away from the bustle of the city, but still conveniently close to all the iconic sights and highlights.

About a 30-minute drive from the centre of Saigon city on the banks of the Saigon River, Villa Song is located in the leafy residential neighbourhood of District 2. Whilst the area doesn’t have much to offer in terms of tourist attractions, it is a great spot those interested in restaurants, street food and friendly locals, plus the sense of peace is part of the hotel’s appeal! There is also a regular, complimentary boat shuttle into the centre of the city which takes roughly 15 minutes. Tan Son Nhat International Airport also about ten miles from the property. 

Despite only opening in 2013 (and then renovated at the end of 2016), Villa Song takes inspiration from a grand French colonial design, oozing old-world charm within each of the 23 rooms individually decorated.  From the small Writer’s Room, comprising of a single bed and writing desk, ideal for solo travellers, to the beautifully appointed Imperial Suite with a grand four-poster bed and two balconies, no two rooms are the same. With dark wooden floors running throughout, and colonial style furniture, there is a very peaceful and discreet nature to Villa Song.

There is one all-day dining restaurant, Bistro Song Vie, which serves predominantly Asian cuisine. With an open-air bar and a dining area flanked by an immaculate lawn, with dappled sunlight breaking through the palm trees, it is quite the place to be. There is a large outdoor saltwater swimming pool (the only one in the area) and a small gym overlooks the pool. For those looking to relax and immerse themselves in the calm of the area, there is a spa which has a substantial treatment menu, offering various face and body treatments.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
