As we approach the last quarter of 2019, the excitement just keeps continuing here at the Caravelle. It starts with the Rugby World Cup fever that has taken over the hotel. On our third floor of the Heritage Wing, in partnership with Heineken, we have created our very own “Rugby World Cup Lounge” where our guests can watch every game live and loud! The beers are cold, the banter is rife, and whether or not you know the rules you are guaranteed a great time.

If the rugby is not going too well for your team and you are in need of a laugh, on October 8th in collaboration with Magners and Standup Asia we proudly present another hilarious night of live comedy, this time with Australian comedy legend Steve Hughes! Sit tight as the self-styled ‘heavy metal comedian’ preforms right here for one night only, supported by Ireland’s very own and good friend of ours Aidan Killian. With these two charismatic nationals, I am sure even this evening the rugby banter will not be left off the table.

As much as I strive to lead the Caravelle to be the best hotel in HCMC, for the past year there has been a hole that I have been unable to fill. I am pleased to announce that I can now tick that box and offer our guests a world class loyalty programme called WorldHotels Rewards. WorldHotels Rewards members may earn points for eligible stays at participating WorldHotels properties and at all Best Western branded properties worldwide. Turn the points you earn from every stay into free nights, dining, shopping or experiential travel options. Points can be earned at over 4,500 hotels worldwide including right here at the Caravelle. Joining is easy, please click on the link below to the directed to join, or on your next stay have our reception team enroll you on arrival. There is nothing better than being rewarded for your loyalty, so make sure you join and take advantage of this great programme.

If you haven’t looked at our website lately, be sure to do as we have re-launched the site from ground up to offer a smoother and more user friendly experience. Being an independent hotel like us means we don’t have support of a corporate office or dictated standards, but also means we can be who we are and offer guests the experience we feel they deserve right from the get go. The website highlights many different tour and local experience options to enhance your stay, and we also reward all reservations made through our website with complimentary breakfast. You can follow what’s going on in the hotel each month and read up on the rich history the Caravelle holds in Saigon’s timeline.

So as we move into the last quarter of the year, now is the time to get a head start on your new year goals or make sure you can tick one of the 2019 boxes. For those of you that have a fitness goal on your list, remember I am still running every Thursday morning. So if you are staying with us on a Thursday be sure to sign up with concierge and allow me to take you on a morning jog through the city, just another of our many unique experiences we offer here in the heart of Saigon.
