Awakening l’Esprit d’Indochine & An A-Rated Newcomer



Capella Hanoi is a 47-bedroom luxury hotel designed by Bill Bensley, the illustrious architect behind Capella Ubud, Bali, voted the No. 1 Hotel in the World in 2020.

A celebration of Opera, Capella Hanoi was conceptualised to be a Petite Auberge (small inn) during the halcyon days of opera. Located just a few steps away from the iconic Hanoi Opera House, this coveted palace of revelry is what could have been, the rendez-vous spot for opera’s greatest artists, singers, composers, and costume designers after the final curtain call. Each suite within this spellbinding property is individually designed to reveal tales of the mischievous opera society – told using over a thousand pieces of operatic memorabilia and custom portraiture art by iconic artist Kate Spencer. Guests can expect a curation of set designs, opera costumes and vintage tableware. A peek inside its signature restaurant, Backstage, showcases the best of Northern Vietnamese cuisine using modern culinary techniques.
