HANOI -- With the coronavirus pandemic abruptly wiping out international guest bookings, luxury hotels in Vietnam increasingly provide lodging for foreigners under quarantine as a way to survive the crisis.

Hotels find conversion into isolation facilities an attractive alternative because it guarantees that rooms will be occupied for 14 to 15 days. They can charge higher-than-usual rates for stays that include three meals a day.
