AccorHotels has expanded its MGallery brand to the mountains of Vietnam, with the highly anticipated opening of the Legacy Yen Tu MGallery wellness sanctuary. Legend has it that a hermit monk An Ky Sinh travelled to Yen Tu mountain in search of medicinal herbs during the pre-Buddhism times some two thousand years ago. Since then, the mountain has been regarded as a divine and sacred place.
The Legacy Yen Tu, MGallery is located on the sacred Yen Tu mountain, approximately 1,068 metres above sea level and near the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ha Long Bay and Hanh Huong Yen Tu village with trekking and adventure activities available.
“The opening of Legacy Yen Tu, MGallery combines the quintessence of wellness tourism and luxury travel to provide a getaway for travellers in search for a complete rejuvenation of their body, mind and spirit,” said Mr. Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for AccorHotels Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and Maldives.
