Phu Quoc is famous for its beautiful beaches where warm, turquoise waters lap against the beautiful white sand. It has grown in terms of luxury tourism in the past decade, with an increased presence of luxury brands and experiences as part of its tourism offerings, and greater investment in infrastructure development on the island.

Located on the calm shores of Long Beach, Regent Phu Quoc is the latest resort on the island. Operated by IHG Hotels & Resorts, Regent Phu Quoc is set to elevate the luxury experience for both local and international tourists to the island jewel.

The resort boasts 176 suites and 126 villas with a perfect blend of traditional Vietnamese vernacular and contemporarily designed interiors. The luxurious suites and villas are specially designed to suit couples, families, and multigenerational families looking for a relaxing holiday.

Nested upon a lagoon, the 3-bedroom Lagoon Pool Villa offers spacious indoor spaces with an open living room and dining areas. Meanwhile, Sky Pool Villas comprise splendid outdoor spaces and a private infinity pool, which will lead guests into a majestic paradise.

Surrounded by lush greenery, Garden Pool Suites with private pools are overflowing with tranquillity. In addition, Ocean View Suites feature a large balcony with stylish seating areas, offering vast views of the pearlescent ocean and sky.

Regent Phu Quoc not only offers guests private sanctuary in a peaceful atmosphere but also makes their stay more captivating with a wide range of world-class restaurants and bars. The Rice Market offers an unexpected voyage in taste, inviting guests to discover the locally-inspired and reinvented classic dishes of Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine expertly crafted in bustling live kitchens.

Meanwhile, guests can also soak up the beach club vibe at Ocean Club with a specially curated menu and rum-inspired cocktails. They can also lie poolside at Ocean Club Pool Terrace, with framed views of the ocean.

Another interesting attraction is Fu Bar – an exclusive sky pool terrace and bar specialising in gin-focused cocktails along with craft beers, fresh fruit concoctions, and a refreshing wine selection. Decorated with curated art, the Lobby Lounge is a relaxing foyer parlour serving refreshments, speciality coffees, fresh teas, and signature cocktails as well as reputable international and artisanal local spirits throughout the day.

Furthermore, Regent Phu Quoc also pays close attention to its wellness experience. The Spa at Regent Phu Quoc offers a holistic approach to mindful self-care, combining enveloping comforts and innovative techniques with natural time-honoured remedies. Set within a comprehensive array of immersive facilities, guests can journey through experiences designed for an elevation of mind, body, and soul to uncover one’s best self.

Elsewhere, the Health Club also features a fitness centre, reset meditation studio, and rooftop yoga pavilions to recharge and rejuvenate. Throughout their stay, guests can experience a highly personalised wellness itinerary guided by the resident Holistic Wellness Coach.

According to Juan Losada, general manager of Regent Phu Quoc, the idea of luxury has evolved in the past couple of years. The inability to get out, explore, celebrate, and experience more has meant that the idea of doing all these activities once being safely able to do so has become even more appealing. “At the same time, we’ve learnt to appreciate the simple pleasures of life: slowing down, nature, creativity, and the power of true human connection. Thus, the prioritisation of wellness will continue to grow, as well the desire for true escapism,” Losada says.

In Vietnam, luxury guest expectations and standards have never been higher. Their exposure to paramount expressions of design, innovation, and service creates near matchless expectations. “By elevating their perspective at the Regent Phu Quoc through purposeful, inspiring, reflective, and refined experiences, we can enthral our guests,” Losada added. “With the opening of Regent Phu Quoc, we look forward to setting new luxury benchmarks through exceptional Vietnamese hospitality and guest experiences which feel simultaneously luxurious and effortless.”

In the first year of opening, Regent Phu Quoc aims to set new luxury benchmarks through exceptional Vietnamese hospitality and guest experiences. It will be a brand-defining resort in Vietnam and Southeast Asia and will deliver a truly captivating interpretation of the Regent experience, marrying the calming, the imaginative, and the extravagant.
