Hue, Vietnam, June 26, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Hue's most luxury hotel La Residence Hotel & Spa, a 1930-built art deco marvel in the one-time imperial capital of Vietnam, has named Edouard Lallemand as its new executive assistant manager.
The 33-year-old French native comes to Hue’s most storied hotel after a two-year stint in Danang where he worked at the Pullman Resort as rooms division manager. Previously, he worked for Sofitel in Turkmenistan and Luxembourg, and in France at the Four Seasons Resort Provence.
He received a post-graduate diploma in hospitality management from the Glion Higher Institute of Higher Education, and achieved a master’s degree in business at the Institute Superieur de Gestion in Paris.
In March, La Residence connected the dots on a new food trail, the Hue Food Trail, through the city’s finest noodle shops, nhà hàng and quán as an entrée to an authentic appreciation of Vietnamese cuisine in the one-time imperial capital of Vietnam.
In May, the hotel introduced a $2,500 5-night package, the Wonders of Vietnam, that takes in five UNESCO World Heritage sites and experiences in central Vietnam.
And in June, the hotel joined the Quintessential Collection Vietnam, an exclusive group of the top hotels in each of Vietnam’s five most compelling destinations.
About La Residence
Set on a two-hectare site with 200 meters of frontage on the fabled Perfume River, La Residence celebrated its grand opening in December 2005 after a painstaking restoration of the 1930-built mansion. The hotel’s distinctive bowed façade, its long horizontal lines and nautical flourishes are hallmarks of the streamline moderne school of art deco architecture.
The hotel’s 122 rooms and suites, restaurants, lounges, bars and conference room are tricked out in complementary art-deco furnishings and décor that evoke both the 1920s and 1950s. The hotel’s fine-dining venue, Le Parfum, serves Mediterranean and French cuisine, as well as dishes from an expansive Vietnamese menu.
The hotel and its spa were named to the Condé Nast Traveler Hot List in 2007. More recently, the hotel has been selected for inclusion in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2014 and in Travel + Leisure’s T+L 500 list of the world’s best hotels for 2013 and 2014.
