The southern tip of Phu Quoc is truly heaven on earth

Three stunning five-star resorts -all located on breathtaking beaches -have transformed the southern Phu Quoc into an ‘island paradise’ that is drawing more and more luxury travelers from all around the world and drawing comparisons with the Maldives

JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay

With supreme views of Bai Kem (Cream Beach), JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay is one of the world’s most incredible five-star resorts. Not only does it have the setting but it also boasts the services and a unique style that will satisfy even the most demanding of luxury travelers.

Whenever they arrive, guests are always amazed at the imaginative and unique architectural style, which was conjured up by the famous architect Bill Bensley.

To come up with such an innovative design, Bensley and his team first dreamed up ‘Lamarck University’, a fictional institution, and then imagined that the resort had repurposed this historic building. Everywhere they go in this outstanding resort, guests might easily imagine the students who once wandered around this ‘tropical campus’ from faculty to faculty.

For example, the expansive lobby resembles a library with leather-bound books from the days of yore. The reception desk is decorated with antiquate bells and other vintage touches. Along the corridors there are displays of the ‘vintage sportswear’ and ‘salvaged medals’ of Lamarck’s alumni.

Knowing that guests come seeking ‘paradise on earth’, the resort makes use of the idyllic setting. Each room boasts stunning views of coconut trees, white sandy beaches and, of course, the deep blue sea beyond. As they relax on their balconies guests will feel a gentle breeze caress their faces, and at night they will hear the sound of waves lapping on the shore as they drift off to sleep.

In the ‘Chemistry bar’ next to the sea, where we might imagine the students of Lamarck memorizing the periodic table, guests can enjoy delicious ‘concoctions’, while in the elevator of the ‘Mollusk faculty’, they can learn  just how many oysters a person should have per day! In total, the resort consists of 18 ‘faculties’ from Natural Science to Zoology…all of which add a unique and fun twist to this world-class resort.

When sojourning at JW Marriot Phu Quoc Emerald Bay, guests can also expect parties as flamboyant as those thrown by the Great Gatsby in the magnificent and opulent Pink Pearl Villa while enjoying culinary delights on a par with some of the world’s most celebrated Michelin star restaurants. 

If they need to recharge their batteries, or realign ‘mind, body and spirit’, guests can enjoy a special body treatment at Chanterelle Spa by JW or join a yoga class on the beach. And there are many more fun activities, such as as learning how to make traditional lanterns and cooking classes. Guests can also take a trip around the island and go snorkeling to check out the gorgeous otherwise.

Last but not least, guests at JW Marriot Phu Quoc Emerald Bay love to experience the world’s longest sea cable car ride, which offers breathtaking views of the Phu Quoc archipelago, and takes them all the way to Sun World Hon Thom Nature Park, which also offers even more excitement.

Premier Residences Phu Quoc Emerald Bay

Situated next to JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay, Premier Residences Phu Quoc Emerald Bay is a stylish, modern condotel that is highly suitable for families and groups of young holidaymakers.

The apartments have a cozy ambience and plenty of luxurious touches with gorgeous furniture, large glass window frames and spacious balconies that allow guests to feast their eyes on the magnificent Bai Kem (Cream beach). There’s also a multilevel infinity pool covering an area of 5,000sqm that will take your breath away.

For those looking to stay in shape, there are yoga and rumba classes, and a state of the art gym in the resort. If seeking something a little more adventurous, guests can go kayaking and waterskiing.

The resort also organizes special trips that will introduce visitors to the typical lives of local living in An Thoi, home to many fishing communities. They can then enjoy the incredible Hon Thom cable car and marvel at the panoramic views before enjoying beach games and water sports at Sun World Hon Thom Nature Park.

When they return, they can enjoy a sumptuous fresh seafood buffet right on the beach and count the stars twinkling in the sky above this stunning 5-star condotel in southern Phu Quoc.

Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort

Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort is also situated in a unique location, namely, Mui Ong Doi, where guests can view the sunrise and the sunset at the exact same spot. For many guests this feature makes Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort a “one of a kind” resort and as a result many Vietnamese celebrities and influencers have made this their holiday home of choice.

It is no exaggeration to say that each villa in this resort is a “mini resort” unto itself. Each villa pays tribute to both the sea and forest. Out front, guests will see the beach and out back they will see the dense forest. This is the ideal place to throw a party. Just pick up the phone and let the hotel staff arrange everything you need.

The water villas here will remind some of the deluxe villas you would find in the Maldives. Meanwhile, the picturesque villas on the cliff will make guests that they are staying in a lush forest. The unique location combined with the sumptuous design of each villa has made this resort one of the hottest destinations in Southeast Asia.

We should also mention the multi-level infinity pool, which is 300m long and covers a total area of 8,000sqm. It is a real highlight of Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort as guests can soak in water while soaking up the unbelievable views of the sublime landscape, in particular, the thick, verdant forest, and the seascape, in particular, the deep blue sea and white sandy shores. 

To top it all off, the restaurants located right by the shore serve the most delicious fresh seafood, and after dinner guests can step into the pool bar to drink a cool beer or refreshing cocktails … or they can simply relax in their villa, order in room service, and enjoy the stunning setting and superlative services of Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort.
