According to a recent survey by the Tourism Advisory Council, the criteria to choose a destination are based mainly on three factors: safety (36 per cent), security (32 per cent), and hot deals (almost 20 per cent). This showcases an emerging tourism trend in the new normality, bringing many more business opportunities for the local tourism industry as well as creating various high-end service products towards a “safety first” purpose.
Privacy is the first choice
In the context of the unpredictable pandemic, quiet islands with luxurious services and accommodation are highly sought-after selections for travellers. Among them, Phu Quoc Island is an ideal rendezvous with the richness of natural landscapes blending perfectly with the rustic charms of local island life.
While the worldwide door for tourism is still latched due to COVID-19, many people are utilising patience and calm. Eventually, the tourism trend for being pampered at natural island retreats will take off in coastal or island regions in Vietnam, just like Phu Quoc Island.

Landing on the pearl island and driving just 15 minutes from Phu Quoc International Airport, you touch the verdant oasis of InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort on the southern and secluded stretch of Long Beach, to enjoy unrivalled privacy on the island’s most popular stretch of sand.
Then, your life in paradise begins. You and your loved ones can wake up to the sound of the waves lapping the shore, and then indulge at the HARNN Heritage Spa, which ‘floats’ on a lotus pond in a quiet corner of the resort. At the end of day, you should not miss the chance to tickle your taste buds with exquisite seafood under the stars in your own villa, and witness a magical sunset with a creative cocktail at INK 360, the highest bar on the island.
IHG Clean Promise highlights
InterContinental Phu Quoc is the first resort on the island to apply the InterContinental® Hotel Group’s Clean Promise, enhancing the guest experience by redefining cleanliness and supporting wellbeing throughout each stay.
Highlights from the Clean Promise initiatives include increased deep cleaning and disinfection cycles as well as reduced contact at check-in, touchless transactions, sanitizer stations, and a new approach to services including buffets, banquets, catering, and room-service.
All restaurants and bars now offer contact-less menu ordering, and guests may scan a provided QR code to view the menu and order from a mobile app via their own personal digital devices. During breakfast, the staff will offer additional service at the table in addition to the sumptuous breakfast buffet.
Leisure facilities including swimming pools, Planet Trekkers Children’s Club, fitness centre, beach and water activities are still available and playing their role in the Clean Promise. While different touchpoints have been reduced, InterContinental Phu Quoc is not reducing their care for the wellbeing of its guests during these changing times. An unforgettable vacation is always what InterContinental Phu Quoc is committed to doing.
