A few days ago we covered a chandelier so big and lavish it could well be called the biggest item of jewelry in the world; Spanning 200 feet, weighing 40 tons and studded with 2.5 million Swarovski crystals the dragon chandelier at the Imperial Palace casino in Saipan wowed everyone but looks like its shining glory will be surpassed by another grandness-in-the-making- Vietnam’s Hanoi Golden Lake hotel. It has been titled as one-of-a-kind since this 25-story building is covered in 5,000 square meters of gilded ceramic making it astonishingly remarkable and better known as the world’s first gold-plated hotel. Located in the downtown Ba Dinh district of Hanoi, on the bank of the Giang Vo Lake, the hotel-apartment complex built by the Hoa Binh group, should be nearing completion by the end of 2020. So if you think there is something bright waiting for us at the end of this unforgettable year it’s probably all the shine coming from Vietnam’s Hanoi Golden Lake hotel. The Golden Lake boasts not just a gorgeous exterior but there is plenty happening indoors too; there is impressive 24 carat gilded furniture, 400 luxurious rooms, a rooftop infinity pool, and the complex resides in one of the capital’s prime locations.
The glittering hotel will be managed by US-based Wyndham Hotel Group to ensure the international standard of management and services to its guests. The golden lake comes with a hefty price tag of $6,500 per square meter, owing to its many luxuries however price for a one night stay at the Hanoi Golden Lake will start from $250, on par with prices offered by other five-star hotels in the city.
