Designed by renowned luxury resort designer Bill Bensley and with sweeping views of Sapa Valley and serene rice paddy fields in and around Sapa in northern Lao Cai province, the newly-opened MGallery Hotel de la Coupole integrates the vibrant colors, patterns and textures of the region’s ethnic minority groups with the sophistication of haute couture in the 1920s and 1930s French Indochine era. The hotel features 249 modern rooms and suites with six room types that overlook the legendary Sapa Valley, mountains, and town square.

“Our first MGallery hotel in Vietnam opened in 2009 and this new opening adds to our existing portfolio of six MGallery properties in the country, which signifies our continuous growth here,” said Mr. Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia. MGallery is a collection of storied boutique hotels offering guests unique experiences inspired by the destination. Each MGallery hotel stands as a gateway into another world, be it a bygone era, a hidden haven, or a spectacular natural landscape.

MGallery Hotel de la Coupole boasts one restaurant, a bar and a patisserie. Chic is its French restaurant with a haute couture inspiration and where customers can dine in a grand yet intimate setting, with refined French dishes. Featuring a cozy rooftop fireplace with views of the mountains, Absinthe bar offers a selection of tapas, wines and locally-inspired cocktails, while Cacao bakery features a variety of freshly baked patisseries, handmade macaroons, and specialty coffees, teas and signature hot chocolate.

Leisure facilities include a heated pool, Le Grand Bassin, a fitness center, Nuages Spa, and the Bobbins kids club, where the young ones are kept entertained with a range of activities. As the only international luxury hotel in Sapa, MGallery Hotel de la Coupole offers a 435 sq m ballroom that can host up to 570 guests in theater style, four meeting rooms, and two board rooms for small meetings and conferences.  

To mark its opening, the resort is offering a promotional program available on weekends. The program includes one night in a Classic Room with breakfast for two, priced from $169 and available until June 30, 2019 when booked before March 31. The offer also includes a Fansipan cable car and funicular ride for two.
