Regent Phu Quoc

Located off the southwest coast of Vietnam alongside a UNESCO-designated World Biosphere Reserve, the resort comprises suites and villas situated a stone’s throw from the water’s edge along Long Beach. Exceptional design and state-of-the-art technology will be delivered alongside the brand’s legendary hospitality for a seamless guest experience.

Juan Losada, general manager said, “We are delighted to introduce Regent’s renowned hospitality to Vietnam and look forward to welcoming guests to experience the inimitable island jewel that is Phu Quoc.”

“Regent Phu Quoc will be a brand-defining resort in Vietnam and Southeast Asia that will deliver a truly captivating interpretation of the Regent experience, marrying the calming, the imaginative, and the extravagant.”

The Regent brand’s luxury legacy has been transformed with today’s most seasoned travellers in mind to deliver the serene and sensational at every turn. This is brought to life at Regent Phu Quoc by luxury hospitality design firm BLINK Design Group. Hidden beneath the shade of swaying palm trees, 176 suites and 126 villas echo the traditional Vietnamese vernacular and marry contemporary interiors with a soothing colour palette. Expansive windows and verandas invite natural light in, providing airy private havens that are complemented by views of landscaped gardens or panoramic ocean scenes.

Spectacular installations heighten the sense of extravagance and add a layer of uniqueness to the guest experience. Guests will be welcomed by Charming Deeps – a bespoke bohemian hand-blown crystal by Lasvit – creating an awe-inspiring moment upon entering the resort lobby. Inspired by Phu Quoc, the piece recreates a composition of the coral reefs that surround the island. It has been designed to work in harmony with the architecture to stimulate the senses, spark conversations, and captivate the imagination with artistry.

At Regent Phu Quoc, guests can expect to experience the brand’s distinctive new hallmarks, from personal havens such as a signature bath ritual within the villa to With Compliments that provides daily beverages and gourmet snacks from the Refreshment Gallery. Other services include a complimentary daily breakfast buffet at Rice Market, pressing and laundry, as well as an unpacking service. Personal Regent Experience Agents elevate guest relations to new heights with a meticulous curation of experiences that will surprise and delight.

For unforgettable epicurean experiences, guests can look forward to six world-class restaurants and bars which define the dynamic Taste Gallery, presenting signature dining and cultural exploration that goes beyond the excellence of the cuisine. Executive chef Bruno Anon will delight guests through innovation, immersion, and reinvention as he seeks to uplift the gastronomic experience.

In the coming months, two additional restaurants and bars will be introduced. Oku will be the only restaurant with an Omakase counter in Phu Quoc and Bar Jade will be a speakeasy showcasing fine artisanal spirits and custom cocktails mixed with fresh local herbs. Guests will also be invited on a journey of discovery on Serenity – the resort’s very own catamaran.
