La Veranda Resort Phu Quoc – MGallery hotel review
With its expansive coastlines graced by pearl-white sands and palm trees, Phu Quoc has long been one of the most enviably lovely islands in all of Southeast Asia. Despite its abundant natural beauty, for years this oasis remained remarkably somnolent, undisturbed by the mass tourism that has transformed neighboring beaches. More than half of the island’s lush interior is a protected national park, ensuring that these jungles will remain verdant for generations to come.
For travelers seeking a reprieve from the ordinary, Phu Quoc offers a truly magical one. Better still, this spectacular piece of paradise is easily accessible, thanks to its international airport with direct flights to hubs including Bangkok, Saigon, Seoul and Kuala Lumpur.
While the Phu Quoc is no longer quite as sleepy as it once was, the stylish La Veranda Resort Phu Quoc – MGallery has managed to preserve a sense of historic elegance rooted in the country’s French-colonial past. The lavishly detailed architecture of the resort is designed to echo the grandeur of one of the sophisticated mansions once in fashion among the elite. Guests in the resort’s 70 rooms and villas are invited to remember a time when the pace of life was more languid. The resort is a tribute to founder Madame Catherine’s family connection to colonial Indochine.
In keeping with the aristocratic motifs, indulgence is everywhere at the resort. Whether you choose to dine at the two superb restaurants, enjoy a soothing treatment at award-winning TĨNH Wellness Sanctuary, embark on a secret island tour, go for a swim in the saltwater pool, or simply sip champagne on the beach at sunset, the choice is yours.
