As I am living in the center of Vietnam and everyone knows Hue is the imperial city of our country. Today I will share with you a unique homestay that is definitely worth check-in once you visit Hue,
Located about 3km far from Hue center, Sahi is hidden in a small alley of Thuy Xuan. A famous architect, Mr. Nguyen Huu Son Duong designed and built it on his own family land. He used very simple techniques and mainly used recycled wood. The building has done for over years and is well-known as a relaxing place, with a variety of public spaces as well as private spaces for guests to stay.
The homestay definitely an ideal place for those who like minimalistic and eco-friendly style. Everything from the indoor space to the kitchen and living rooms is always full of natural light and lively color. I was lucky to attend one of soap making workshops hosted by a local lady during my time staying there. Talking to her, I realized that all amenities like shampoo and hand soap at the homestay are made by her and 100 percent natural ingredients that she found from local sources.
Despite its opened air design, the bedroom remains discreet and ensures privacy. There are mainly private rooms and one family room arranged like a dormitory which has several bunk beds for family or a group of 4-5 friends together. Interior furniture is designed to be multi-function and only necessary items to create more empty spaces for comfortable living.
This homestay is chosen for people who go on business trips as well thanks to its comfortable living. They feel more creative while staying and doing their work here as mentioned by a receptionist.
The room rate is not reasonable from 20 USD-25 USD per night and you can book easily via booking channels or directly from their Facebook page, I personally like direct contact which I can get support easily with transportation or local excursions before going.
Thank you for reading and I hope it will bring you some ideas for working and traveling in the future.
