Vietnam has welcomed its latest five-star hotel with the opening of the new InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort. Located on pristine Phu Quoc Island – a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve off the country’s southwest coast – the resort is thoughtfully designed for families, couples and individual travellers alike.

Set on one of Vietnam’s most beautiful white-sand beaches, this striking luxury retreat offers 459 well-appointed guest rooms, suites and villas, six restaurants and bars, a signature spa, and an array of other upscale resort facilities.

A 15-minute drive from Phu Quoc International Airport and only 20 minutes from the cultural attractions of Duong Dong town, this new destination hotel delivers a sophisticated and cosmopolitan vibe blended with the rustic charm of this little-known island.

Phu Quoc is home to Vietnam’s world-renowned pearl farms, coral reefs rich in marine life, and authentic day and night markets selling local crafts, farm-fresh produce and culinary treats.

Long Beach faces west, offering resort guests panoramic views of fiery sunsets and unspoilt tropical coastline.

Each room, suite and villa offers comfortable and contemporary accommodations, with deep bathtubs, walk-in rain showers, floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious balconies.

Gourmet food plays an essential part of the resort’s daily rhythm. Designed by award-winning Australian designer Ashley Sutton, INK 360 is the highest bar in Phu Quoc, offering breathtaking sea and mountain views, sundowner cocktails and delicious tapas-style seafood, caviar and oysters.

Lava is a fine-dining seafood and imported specialty meats restaurant, serving produce cooked on charcoal grills and lava stone and enhanced with aromatic spices and peppers.

Sora & Umi features authentic Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine with the culinary focus on several live cooking stations including robotayaki, teppanyaki and sushi.

For more relaxed and casual dining, the poolside Ombra offers home-made Italian dishes and gelato, while the beachfront Sea Shack serves up toes-in-the-sand tapas, barbecue and grilled comfort food.

Guests can relax and unwind with soothing treatments and natural therapies – all inspired by traditional Asian medicine – in the HARNN Heritage Spa, with its stunning design by Vietnamese architect Vo Trong Nghia.

Younger guests are also well catered for at the Planet Trekkers children’s club and dedicated Kids Can Cook cooking school under the guidance of the resort’s team of professional chefs.

“We are absolutely thrilled to bring the glamour of the InterContinental lifestyle to Phu Quoc,” says resort general manager Piero Bellizzi.

“The island is a hidden gem and the opening of InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort helps put the destination on the global map for discerning international travellers.”

An opening special offer of A$377 per room per night (minimum two-night stay) includes a A$145 credit at the resort’s restaurants, bars and spa, daily breakfast for two guests, airport transfers, and children under 12 dine free when accompanied by a paying adult.
