Kick back and relax at this intimate French seaside mansion, nestled in flourishing gardens and just steps from turquoise waters.
La Veranda lies on the west coast of Vietnam’s relatively undiscovered Phu Quoc Island, far from the brilliant but chaotic mainland cities yet still offering a spectacular taste of what Vietnam has to offer. This romantic resort was voted 18th in the Top 100 Luxury Resorts Worldwide 2018, and it makes the most of the natural landscapes, surrounded by tropical greenery and merely metres from a long stretch of golden sand and clear waters – perfect for snorkelling and diving. The hotel itself is just as impressive – a French colonial-style mansion with striking white pillars, terracotta roof tiles and winding wooden staircases. That’s before you even get to the immaculate L-shaped pool area and spacious terraces, both ideal viewing points for wonderfully colourful sunsets.
The resort’s Art Deco-style bar is a great spot for a leisurely evening cocktail, and there’s plenty of choice for places to eat. Enjoy a range of gluten-free, vegetarian, European or Asian dishes at The Peppertree Restaurant, and give authentic Vietnamese street food tastings a go, from pork noodle soup to seafood canapés. To feel the fresh sea breeze, head down to Le Jardin and soak up the views from the lawn and beach deck, or tuck into grilled meats and seafood at the barbecue on the beach. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, request the Sunset Champagne experience or candlelit dining under the stars on the beach.
Choose from a range of spacious rooms and villas with either garden or ocean views; they’re all traditional and elegant in design, with four-poster beds and walls adorned with Vietnamese art. Upgrade from one of the Garden Rooms to a Premier Ocean and enjoy open sea views from your balcony or terrace. For the ultimate in luxury we recommend the La Veranda Ocean Villa, complete with its own private terrace and manicured garden.
