“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whispering s and the champagne and the stars.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
If you've re-read The Great Gatsby recently or seen Baz Luhrmann’s movie adaptation, you may be wishing you could be transported back to this indulgent era dripping in Art Deco palaces, glittering cocktail dress and hedonistic bon viveurs.
We have picked out our most opulent “Gatsbyesque” properties – places where you could easily imagine the characters of the book stepping out of the pages to enjoy a glamorous cocktail party or an intimate soiree…
Sofitel Metropole Hanoi
Set amidst the crumbling French colonialism of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, the historic Sofitel Metropole is the Grand Dame of Vietnam, with vintage Citroen's at the entrance and an elegant poolside cocktail bar. Celebrating the spirit of early Hollywood glamour and post-war creativity, the Opera Wing embraces the art deco interiors of the 1930's with splashes of bright red against polished black marble, glittering tiles and velvet floral motifs.
La Residence Hotel & Spa - Hue
This former governor’s residence has been converted into a stunning hotel in a prime position on the banks of the Perfume River. The hotel’s signature suites are in the original mansion house and have been decorated in colonial style and complimented by the Art Deco design of the communal areas.
"So we beat on, boats against the current,
borne back ceaselessly into the past".
Have a very beautiful Friday and a great weekend..
