Where will you go once international borders open up for travel? If you fancy all things shiny, consider a stay in the world’s first gold-plated hotel—surprisingly affordable with rates starting from US$250 for a night’s stay. Located in the central district of Hanoi along the scenic Giang Vo Lake, the newly opened Dolce by Wyndham Hanoi Golden Lake Hotel offers 400 rooms across 25 stories.
Built at a whopping cost of $200 million dollars, the property is as extravagant as it sounds, from the gold and marble-clad grand lobby to the 24k gold-tiled infinity pool that overlooks the city. The rooms aren’t spared the Midas’ touch either, with shower heads, bathtubs, sinks, taps, and even toilet seats covered in precious gold.
On the dining front, guests can look forward to a royalty-inspired private dining experience at Golden Lake Palace, fine-dining Vietnamese cuisine at Majesty Fine Dining, and a stunning Skybar serving cocktails with a view.
Managed by Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, the Hoa Binh Group-owned hotel marks Dolce’s debut in Asia and targets well-heeled business travelers. A night’s stay in a Golden Classic room starts from US$250.
