Forbes has recently listed a hotel in Hanoi as an outstanding newly built hotel in the world.
The Capella Hanoi is going to open in January 2021. According to Forbes, the hotel is designed by Bill Bensley, the renowned hotel and resort designer for whimsical architectural concepts. His latest collaboration with Asian luxury chain Capella is this new 47-key hotel in Vietnam’s capital.

Just a stone’s throw from Hoan Kiem Lake Hanoi’s famous opera house, Bensley seems to have taken that as his inspiration, and conceived of an enclave that would have felt like a home away from home for eccentric operagoers and artists from the turn of the last century.
Each of the 47 rooms and suites are individually styled to reveal stories of opera legends. Visitors could find a curious blend of memorabilia, photographs, set displays and vibrant portraiture art with geometric prints and modernist details inspired by 1920s décor.
Impressed upon everything are striking marks of bold theatrical designs, transporting they back in time to celebrate the bygone era once more. To wit, guests will find over 1,000 musical instruments and artifacts such as set designs and production costumes, not to mention classic cocktails and small bites in the Diva’s Lounge and both international and Vietnamese fare in the main restaurant, Backstage.
The hotel’s Auriga Spa will offer treatments inspired by the celestial spheres and phases of the moon. Meanwhile the Indoor pool designed to resemble a haven for opera singers to rest their voices; the Living Room and Capella Culturist offering crafted local experiences.
