AccorHotels has expanded its MGallery brand to
the mountains of Vietnam, with the highly anticipated opening of
the Legacy Yen Tu wellness sanctuary.
Legend has it that a hermit monk An Ky Sinh travelled
to Yen Tu mountain in search of medicinal herbs during the
pre-Buddhism times some two thousand years ago. Since then, the
mountain has been regarded as a divine and sacred place.
The Legacy Yen Tu, MGallery is located on the
sacred Yen Tu mountain, approximately 1,068 metres above sea level
and near the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ha
“The opening of
Legacy Yen Tu, MGallery combines the quintessence of wellness
tourism and luxury travel to provide a getaway for travellers in
search for a complete rejuvenation of their body, mind and
spirit,” said Mr. Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for
AccorHotels Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and Maldives.
Designed by Bill Bensley, renowned designer of luxury resorts,
each of the 133 rooms at Legacy Yen Tu MGallery is a reflection of
heritage and spirituality. Built using ancient methodologies to
emulate a peaceful way of life, the rooms feature the signature
woodeninked slab traditionally used for calligraphy and an outdoor
patio living area.
“Inspired by the ancient architectural
design, Legacy Yen Tu, MGallery is a testament to Vietnam’s rich
history. The property features handcrafted interior décor items
with hand-made traditional materials to blend with its surrounding
ambience,” said Mr Markus Hesse, the resort’s General Manager.
