The Caravelle is made of two buildings; the older ten-floor building which was built in 1959, and the newer one, with 24 floors, which was finished in 1998. The hotel is classy and tastefully decorated in the "Art Nouveau" style. The ground floor offers lounge areas, along with a restaurant and a bar where the atmosphere is rather conventional; the top floor, however, is a completely different story! The bar, which offers a panoramic view over the city and the Saigon River, is renowned for its crazy atmosphere. During the day, you can enjoy the indoor tables and the cool air which circulates via the numerous inlets, but when the temperatures really start to fall, head for the main terrace. Finally, when night falls, music fills the air and from the terrace to the dance floor, the party gets swinging! It's open every night until midnight, except on Sundays (so don't wait till too late before indulging in a drink and a dance).
If you need to relax after a hard day's work or after a night of partying at the bar on the top floor, you should head for the 7th floor, which is dedicated to relaxation and physical exercise. You will find a very pleasant spa that offers guests a massage and general pampering. In the inner court yard, there is a long swimming pool that is ideal if you want to swim lengths and there is even a dedicated area where you can play with your children. There are also a couple of deckchairs around the pool if you want to work on your tan. Behind a bay window which gives onto the swimming pool, you will see the fitness centre. It is open 24/7 and equipped with state-of-the-art machines and television screens. Last but not least, there is the bar; a place to get some deserved comfort after a gruelling sports session, but also a place for partygoers who want to enjoy a drink after their afternoon nap.
