Lap up stunning ocean views at this luxurious beachfront resort, in a green and secluded corner of Phu Quoc Island.
Nam Nghi has a superb beachfront position on Phu Quoc’s tranquil north-west coast, on a teardrop-shaped edge of the Mong Tay peninsula. The main hotel sits among clusters of tropical trees, and is backed by a long path winding through the greenery to luxurious ocean view villas dotted around on all sides. In front, there’s a patch of rocky shoreline which opens onto a stretch of golden beach; take a step down from the decked infinity pool framed by neat red-square parasols, and you’re already on the pristine sands — with unobstructed views and just metres between you and the calmly lapping turquoise waters.
The hotel serves a brilliant choice of pan-Asian and international dishes by the pool, on the oceanfront and even on a private island. You can tuck into traditional Vietnamese and western dishes, a pizza from the centrepiece oven or a treat from the bakery at seafront Ocean Reflection. The informal pool bar is a top choice for light meals and snacks, and you can indulge in Vietnamese and Thai cuisine at the intimate Tree House, with views over Vung Bau Bay from under a lofty banyan tree. For an unforgettable meal out, head to the pier and take a quick boat ride to the exclusive Rock Island Club, just a stone’s throw from Mong Tay peninsula — enjoy sharing platters by day and custom-made cocktails by night on this tiny but luxurious islet, after soaking up its 360° panoramic views over the sea and Phu Quoc’s coastline.
The rustic-luxe rooms at Nam Nghi have beautiful wooden floors, chic décor and stunning bathrooms. Ocean Deluxe and Ocean View Deluxe rooms have cosy open-plan lounge areas and spacious balconies. The Sunrise/Sunset Ocean Villas have four-poster beds and an elegant circular soaking tub; upgrade to one of these villas and you’ll also enjoy a private veranda with a hammock for two and breathtaking sea views.
