The Elegance Hospitality Group (EHG) has come a long way since the original members’ humble beginnings running a 10 room mini hotel in Hanoi’s Old Quarter.

This is a story of how the founding owner Do Van Dan, and his team, aspired to build a highly professional boutique hotel group founded on superb customer service. Through hard work, knowing how to take risks, natural instinct and a sheer love of creating wonderful luxurious memories all expectations were exceeded.

Dan, born into a poor working class family on the outskirts of Hanoi, was financially unable to pursue his dream of becoming an architect. He instead went to teacher training college, funding his studies by working every available hour doing jobs such as a computer engineer, mini-hotel night receptionist and even a pesticide seller. Then fate intervened when he landed a receptionist job in a 4 star hotel in Hanoi. The next few years gave invaluable insight into hotel management, HR, guests’ expectations and customer service. A plan formed in his mind.

Taking the plunge at the end of the 1990s he invested all his savings in a small 10 room mini hotel in Hanoi’s Old Quarter. He ran this with four staff (who are still with him today). At the time, Hanoi’s Old Quarter hotel industry was a competitive “jungle”. Quality, customer service and putting the guest first were not priorities for most hoteliers.  Many just wanted to make money by any means possible.

Dan rose above this. Good customer service and high standards would define and differentiate his business.  The ethos right from the start was, and continues to be, to focus on every single detail, to care for every guest, to exceed expectations and to build a team of genuinely friendly professional staff with the “guest comes first” vision.

The early days were very challenging, made harder because of limited financial investment. Plus this very young team was trying hard to introduce a new concept into Hanoi’s competitive hotel market. Their passion, open-minded approach and an unfailing determination to succeed paid off. Working 24/7 EHG’s foundations were laid as the team set a new trend for Hanoi’s boutique hotel industry.

The team upscaled and started to develop a brand identity in the first decade of 2000, which would differentiate their hotels from others. This was the Elegance brand – the forerunner of today’s La Siesta Brand. 2003-2010 a series of new boutique hotels under the Elegance brand, most named after jewels, were opened. Dan and his team became serious players in Hanoi’s hotel market.

From 2010, the business went to the next level. Some of the older hotels closed in order to refocus investment on an expanded vision.   In 2013, the group’s first four-star resort-styled hotel opened in Hoi An.   A year later  EHG’s flagship brand – La Siesta – was born.  This signifies a higher level of service offering featuring more luxurious accommodation, restaurants, bars andspas.

At the end of 2017 the Essence Hoi An hotel & Spa was relaunched as La Siesta Resort & Spa – the group’s first five-start standard resort with 2 pools, 2 restaurants and townhouse villa accommodation with butler service.

EHG’s portfolio diversified to include the Red Bean Restaurant brand and leading spa La Siesta Spa, as well as a number of cool hip rooftop bars. Every year influential major travel sites (TripAdvisor, Booking.com, Agoda etc) bestow numerous honors on EHG, recognizing the business in all areas – customer service, high standards, design and customer satisfaction.

EHG’s goal is to consistently give every guest an outstanding personal service focusing on sophistication, luxury and great memories. Dedication, passion and hard work by this hotel family has made EHG one of today’s most respected boutique hotel groups in Vietnam. With a reputation for impeccable quality and a five-star ethos, we invite you to come and experience our unrivalled service.

Our journey continues and so will our story.
