AccorHotels Expands MGallery Brand to Mountains of Vietnam

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 Long Bay.

“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.

Guests can savour Vietnamese cuisine at the hotel’s Tho Quang restaurant or enjoy a drink or two at Thien Tra Lobby Bar which boasts stunning mountain views. For events, weddings and meetings, the hotel’s ballroom can cater up to 800 guests.

The hotel is also home to a range of leisure facilities, including Tue Tinh Am Wellness that offers an open space for meditation, yoga and Truc Lam Zen practices.
