Festive season in Phu Quoc

December 11, 2021 | 10:30
When the bustling cities become too crowded at the end of the year, I miss the pure and tranquil moments when walking barefoot on a sandy beach, sunbathing by the jade pool, and listening to the breath of the sea and the wind. I also miss the amazing festive fever on the pearl island of Phu Quoc.

Christmas time on Phu Quoc is rather strange for me, as it is not bustling nor too quiet. The festive fever is hot enough for us to feel warm and enjoyable in the natural oasis. It’s great to lie lazily in the brilliant sunshine and see the white clouds floating in the deep blue sky.

As a joyful present to end a fluctuating year, my family and I stopped at InterContinental Phu Quoc to experience a voyage of appetising cuisine at luxury restaurants and bars, enjoy fun games and entertainment, and walk amongst beautiful natural landscapes – all on Phu Quoc island. The festive ambience and smiling faces appear everywhere at the 5-star resort.

A real Christmas will be lost if we ignore traditional games along the long beach or miss the smell of gingerbread from the amazingly huge gingerbread house at Mercado. And more importantly, Christmas would not be the same without gifts and wishes from legendary Santa Claus.

Aromatic wine and hearty feasts are what we should not miss at InterContinental Phu Quoc during any Christmas or New Year holiday.

The resort’s team of leading chefs create state-of-the-art menus to fit the most fastidious gastronomeur. Sora & Umi emerges with themed buffets while LAVA is sophisticated with its 5-course set menu paired with excellent wines. Meanwhile, INK 360 indulges guests with its stunning sunset parties featuring live DJs and amazing cocktails.

This year, we are welcomed by a newcomer – the Pearl Lounge is located on the sixth floor of Sky Tower. Pearl Lounge opens a new world of mouthwatering desserts, milkshakes, and signature cocktails.

This year, InterContinental Phu Quoc is hosting a special New Year’s Eve party at INK 360 with a superhero theme to spread positive energy and encourage people after recent hardships. To say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new brighter year, you cannot miss the chance to pamper yourself with delicious specialities at Sea Shack by the calm ocean.

Numerous festive activities start from December 17 until the early days of the new year, to keep us occupied throughout our stay. InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Beach is the perfect setting for us all to enjoy happiness with our families and experience the most unforgettable moments together.
