Why did you choose the city of Hue for the construction of the hotel? Why is it so attracted?
Hue is a land of exception. Hue is so well-endowed that the whole province could be branded as a kind of natural park, with the most diverse vistas. The perception of “Where Heaven and Earth Meet” is most relevant to define the sense of place. This perception, in fact, reflects the deep ecology that defines the relationship of Hue people with their natural environment, imbued with cultural and spiritual values of biodiversity.
Nowhere in Vietnam as in Hue, the land reflects the wisdom of nature, with the rhythms of its sacred seasons.
Hue is celebrated by UNESCO as “a poetic masterpiece of urban architecture”. At the very source, this perception of Hue stems from the poetic of the Perfume River.
Hue is a city of vibrant heritage. It carries the essential values of religion, philosophy, morality, national traditions. These values are deeply rooted in all aspects of the daily life of its people. The beauty of Hue is not in that of a city of historical monuments and a city of archeology, but in a city with a purple sunset, a ballade sang but unidentified voice from a sampan on the city moon river, in a green city with garden houses and tree-lined roads, with peaceful villages inside the royal citadel and along the Perfume River, with the busy crafts villages, a city animated by gastronomic feats folk festivals, religious rituals, with the Hue Festival bringing back the spiritual values of the Nguyen dynasty.
The brand of Hue gastronomy has spread all over Vietnam and in the world. There are currently some 1.300 dishes that could be prepared along with Hue style, with two distinct cuisine schools: royal and popular.
Hue is indeed one of the rare places in Vietnam, which has preserved the original structure of an ancient capital. Hue is surrounded by a natural environment, which has kept its primeval green colour: the colour of yesterday, still of today and hopefully of tomorrow.
Hue is living and developing as a world heritage in its true meaning. The successful conservation of natural and cultural heritage has provided Hue with the genuine values of a destination. Hue is only reserved for travellers who know how to slowly travel and enjoy their journey.
