InterContinental Saigon has unveiled a major upgrade to its existing Grand Ballroom and function areas, with the design inspired by the lotus, the national symbol of Vietnam, plus Ho Chi Minh City and its surrounding landscapes.

The multimillion dollar renovation was carried out on 2,560 sqm of indoor and outdoor event meeting space, including six function rooms and an outdoor terrace, ranging from the compact Hon Ong meeting room to the expansive Grand Ballroom, which now features an 8.5m by 4.5m LED wall. The venue says it is the largest screen in town.

Renovated meeting rooms have all been clad in timber with metal detailing, and all the spaces feature a multipurpose cabinet that is outfitted with a display area and storage on either sides. Double sliding doors with ribbed glass conceal a TV when not in use and showcase the display area. When guests want to use the TV, the doors slide to either sides and reveal an 85" interactive TV with video conference capabilities. These sliding doors may also be used for writing, replacing the need for additional flipcharts.

An 1,818 sqm, pillar-free Grand Ballroom, catering for up to 1200 attendees, is fully equipped with the latest audio-visual technology and can be flexibly divided into two separate spaces for more intimate events.

The Grand Ballroom is decked with an oversized interactive chandelier featuring 7,980 individually hung crystal lightbulbs emulating glistening water when viewed from underneath. The chandelier also comes equipped with its own state-of-the-art adjustable lighting technology systems that can be changed to evoke different moods with the use of RGBW LED lighting control system.

Additional design touches include a curvilinear fabric ceiling in the pre-function foyer that depicts the Mekong River and lighting effects with a variety of programmable light hues and visual cues. The design of the carpet, in coastal hues of navy, beige and yellow – which resembles the water environment that the lotus lives in – covers the floor, while the decorative columns represent the intertwining of the lotus stems in the water as they reach the surface for sunlight. The renovations also include a new Business Hub, a space featuring built-in ovens, a fridge and a counter for master cooking classes.
