Vietnam: Azerai, an emerging hospitality group led by hotelier Adrian Zecha, is planting another flag in the former imperial capital of Vietnam.

The historic hotel, to be known as Azerai La Residence, Hue, will celebrate an official opening in February after the most extensive renovation since the historic, 1930-built mansion was completely overhauled thirteen years ago.

The 122-room hotel features 200 metres of frontage along the Perfume River, with views of the Flagtower Bastion and the 1804-built Citadel on the river's north bank.

Poised between the Hue Railway Station and a string of colonial era buildings, the hotel's facade and long horizontal lines are testaments to its art deco roots.

Azerai La Residence, Hue is a complement to the 60-room Azerai Can Tho, which debuted on the Mekong Delta in spring 2018. The name Azerai was inspired by the initials of Adrian Zecha and the Persian word caravanserai, a resting place usually around a central courtyard.

Azerai is a new story and brand of hotels that aim to offer guests simple elegance, refined design, discreet and attentive service in places of unique beauty and cultural interest.

Plans call for a number of additional properties within Vietnam, and beyond.
