Designed by renowned luxury resort designer Bill Bensley with sweeping views of Sapa Valley and serene rice paddy fields, the newly opened MGallery Hotel de la Coupole integrates the sparkling colours, patterns and textures of the region’s minority tribes with the sophistication of haute couture in the 1920s and 1930s French Indochine era.
Featuring 249 modern rooms with six room types that overlook the legendary Sapa valley and mountain views, the names and design of each room category represents a French style icon inspired by the local minority tribes surrounding Sapa. The resort’s design is inspired by the French Indochine era of the 1920s and 1930s reflected in the design and style of its architectural surrounds.
“This year marks the 27th anniversary celebration of AccorHotels’ presence in Vietnam and the opening of Hotel de la Coupole Sapa is our latest addition in the luxury and upscale segment that signifies our continuous growth in the country. As for each MGallery, this hotel is an ideal hideaway inspired by its own story echoed by its artful design” said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for AccorHotels Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia.
