All year round, Saigon’s days are long and warm. Think back to your first few sticky days and the way your clothes clung to your clammy skin. If you’ve been here a while now, it’s likely you’re more adapted to that perpetual summer. The great thing about this is, pool weather is all year round.
If you’re looking for a villa to call home, or just somewhere to temporarily enjoy a pool with some privacy – here’s our top list of Saigon’s best villas where you can cool off.
1. Your weekend escape awaits
The Villa Song is a luxury riverside resort located in District 2. The boutique has 23 uniquely decorated rooms so that no two guest experiences are the same. The Villa Song is a great place to send visitors that are looking for a restorative stay – especially if its their first time in the bustling Saigon! Otherwise, if you want a solo getaway or romantic escape, make sure you book yourself in.
The mineral rich salt water pool comes complete with loungers and umbrellas for protection. Make sure you bring that page turner with you!
2. Poolside barbecue, anyone?
This Thao Dien gem is the perfect solution for those in need of space for a group of friends or large families. The villa has a total of seven bedrooms and five bathrooms, so you’ll never have to worry about feeling cramped. The pool space is the perfect place for a barbecue and a few beers while out baking in the Saigon sun.
Thao Dien is known for its large variety of specialty food markets, such as Annam Gourmet, Nam An market and so on. If accessibility to the tastes of home and imported goods is important to you, then this should be at the top of your list.
3. For peace and quiet
Find a home that is your sanctuary. This is exactly what this District 9 villa offers. A gym, garden, and barbecue area are just the beginning of the perks of living in this home. The Garland area is approximately 7 km from District 7, the hub of Saigon’s south. District 9 living provides an environment that is particularly family friendly. Far enough from the crowds and chaos of District 1, this is a great choice for those who need a break from the city hustle.
4. Feel like a royal in this Thao Dien castle
An expansive floor area of 1,200m2 across three floors, this huge District 2 villa is the perfect living solution for big families. Its six bedrooms and six bathrooms means that coordinating shower times is a thing of the past. The four car parking garage means there’s huge space available. Supermarkets, international schools and commercial shopping centers are all a stones throw away. Convenient to all the hustles of daily life during the week, the beautiful garden and pool area mean there’s an oasis right in your backyard.
5. Central Xuan Thuy
This villa is located on the main stretch of District 2’s Xuan Thuy. We love the fun shape of the pool that this villa has to offer, which we know children will love. If you have a young family, this is a great way to keep them cool in the Saigon sun! We love Xuan Thuy and how easy it is to access neighborhood favorites such as Biacraft and Mekong Merchant for those Friday drinks or that Sunday brunch.
6. Must love coffee
Another Thao Dien treasure, this villa is just minutes away from popular corner coffee shop; Dolphy, as well as Kokois and Voelker. So, if you’re big on coffee you’ll be thrilled to have it easily accessible. Relax on your rooftop and enjoy slow Saturday mornings from above. In the peak of the dry season, you can enjoy getting your toes wet with a splash in that pool. This two storey, five bedroom and five bathroom beauty is sure to catch your eye.
There we have it! That’s our round up of some of our favorite Saigon villas with pools on the property. Villa’s are a popular choice for both families and groups of friends that want to live under one roof. We hope this list has inspired you to make a splash when choosing your next Saigon home!
