Straight out of colonial-era Vietnam, Dalat Palace warmly welcomes guests to Dalat with white-glove treatment and modern amenities. The 43 accommodations are a mix of old and new linen and wood surrounding clawfoot bathtubs, warm woodworking, Wifi, and satellite televisions. Size ranges from a 260 sq. ft. Superior Room to the palatial 540 sq. ft. Presidential Suite, trimmed with niceties like a balcony and functional fireplace.
The hotel - or indeed, palace - grounds are gorgeous, with a large garden and stunning views of nearby Xuan Huong Lake. Guests often wander the lavish interiors, where Vietnam's specialty art reproductions adorn the Dalat Palace hallways. Romance fills the air with every note at French restaurant Rabelais, a live piano accompanying the flavors of continental fine dining. Afterward, the casual, cozy atmosphere of the wine salon encourages leisurely reading or socializing in the company of a tasty varietal.
