Are you searching for Southeast Asia’s next tropical paradise? Well, if you’ve already explored picturesque Phuket, relaxed on the beaches of Koh Samui and been enchanted by Bali, then you might fancy trying a new island jewel...Discover Phu Quoc below.
A beach lover's dream
Vietnam’s 'Pearl Island', Phu Quoc (pronounced “foo kwok”) is nestled just off the country’s south coast, close to the border with Cambodia and surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand. This sheltered setting creates the perfect conditions for beachfront bliss. Think powder-soft sands lined with gently swaying palm trees and lapped by warm, shallow seas and you get the idea. Paradise. Pure paradise.
Emerald isle in Vietnam?
Phu Quoc even looks like a jewel; wide in the north and gradually narrowing down to peninsula in the south. In the centre, a ridge of lush, jungle-clad mountains known as the 99 Peaks creates a stunning natural backdrop for any trip to the island, and the emerald green Phu Quoc National Park is a treasure trove of tropical flora and fauna. With such an abundance of natural assets, it is little wonder that Phu Quoc and its surrounding islands have been designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
On the stunning northwest coast of the island, an enchanting low-rise resort has opened its doors. The Radisson Blu Resort Phu Quoc is nestled among landscaped gardens, facing the sea. The resort itself features 514 rooms and suites, plus an array of upscale facilities including a tropical outdoor lagoon pool, children’s club and diverse dining opportunities. It is also attached to the larger Corona Resort complex - a spectacular new seafront destination featuring safari, amusement and water parks, a world-class golf course and Vinoasis, a large spa and wellness centre.
This combination of sublime seclusion, extensive amenities and a location just 27km from Phu Quoc International Airport, makes Radisson Blu Resort Phu Quoc the ideal retreat for all types of travelers. Couples seeking a romantic break can relax in an ambiance of peace and privacy, while families will find a wealth of ways to reconnect with each other. And the beauty of choosing Phu Quoc is that visitors are able to bask in the spirit of discovery, knowing that they are experiencing one of Asia’s most exciting up-and-coming destinations.
This sense of adventure can also be enjoyed without the logistical headaches often associated with travelling off the beaten track. Phu Quoc International Airport was recently upgraded and now offers direct connections to and from several major Asian cities, plus some long-haul connections from Europe. In addition, international visitors to Phu Quoc are allowed to stay on the island for up to 30 days without obtaining a visa.
All of which makes Phu Quoc a wonderfully unique option for visitors; exotic yet accessible, developed yet unspoiled, beautiful yet blissfully uncrowded. For travelers seeking the next Southeast Asian island paradise, Phu Quoc is the perfect choice.
