Actually great, but...
I booked 3 nights at the Nam Nghi Phu Quoc. I’m writing this review at the 2nd day of my stay. The resort is located on a very nice peninsula surrounded with actually quite nice turquoise colored water. Very close to one of the best attractions on Phu Quoc, the Safari park, takes you less than 10 minutes to reach it by taxi. The villas and green spaces are in a very good condition. I like the style of our sunrise ocean front villa a lot and the few on the sea is just stunning. The food is great quality and the stuff in the (only one) restaurant which is opened is very helpful and professional. Well, why just 3 stars in my rating? I don’t want to cast the hotel to a negative light, I just compare the offered services to what I’m used to from other hotels in the same price range. I understand, due to the current situation it is not easy for the hotels to keep all services up. Let me begin. First thing where I see room for improvement is the service at the pool/ beach area. I stayed 2 times at the pool for several hours by now and no one was asking if we would like something to drink. The beach is at the current time not usable, due to some excavator which is doing some work at the beach. Actually this point I can understand. The current situation is the chance for hotels for renovations. Anyway for me as current guest frustrating. Furthermore the trash bin on the beach is at the second day in the same condition as yesterday: full. The little private beach on Rock Island is possible to swim, but due to the corrals not that nice just to walk in the water. On part of the pool there is under construction as well. At the reception I asked for any information regarding offered activities offered by the hotel. They told me I the room is a list where all information are provided. Until now I don’t have any information, because in my is no such list, at least I could not find it. I have to ask once more at the reception this evening... want to use the Spa offers. I mentioned before that just one restaurant is opened. The thing is after 2 times eating at the restaurant I don’t know what I want to try this evening. I’m sorry, maybe the next statement seems ridiculous, but it seems like the same 7 songs are played all day in the lobby and restaurant, which is driving me crazy. Summery: For sure I enjoy my time here. As mentioned before great facility, great and quite location, but with some room for improvement as described. If you are searching for a hotel to chill out and do NOT want to swim in the sea, I can recommend this hotel to you. I’m pretty sure, after the current special situation the most of my negative mentioned points will be extinguished as soon as more tourists can visit the hotel again, the are able to offer the full range of services again.
The most relaxing hotel on Phu Quoc
This was my second stay at Nam Nghi Resort and I can’t wait to visit again next month, it’s my favorite hotel on Phu Quoc. I booked a Sunset villa which came with an amazing veranda overlooking the sea, outdoor shower, spacious bathroom and the most comfortable king size bed I have ever slept in. The resort is a perfect place to unwind and reconnect with nature. Everything from service to food was 5*, I especially enjoyed having a la carte breakfast at the Treehouse, which was served under a 300 year old banyan tree. I want to thank my villa host Mr. Thanh, Mr.Louis, a waiter at the Treehouse, and a spa lady Ms. Tho Phuong for making my stay so relaxing and enjoyable. I highly recommend to hire a boat for a few hours and explore the nearby islands together with the Nam Nghi team. Make sure to book a spa treatment which can be done either at An Mai SPA or on one of the outdoor massage platforms. And do not miss a chance to witness Phu Quoc’s famous sunsets at the Rock Bar, the resort’s private island which is accessible by boat.
Nam Nghi vibes.
I recently stayed at Nam Nghi and I have to say this resort is very unique. The whole place has a very serene and nature friendly vibe to it. From sitting on your private balcony in the sunset and sea view villas, to taking a gentle stroll through the grounds to have dinner or breakfast at the restaurant, you get a feeling of nature and peacefulness. And this is surely one of the only places where, sitting in one spot, you can catch both the sunrise and sunset. Another one-off is the club and beach on the separate little island just a very short boat ride away from the main resort, another stunning location to see out your day with a cool drink and breathtaking sunset view. All the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful from the minute you arrive until the minute you leave. All in all, the Nam Nghi is a perfect place to switch off and unwind.
First time we traveled to Phu Quoc, but this time is considered the best. One of our friend recommended Nam Nghi for this trip so we're like alright, let give it a try. Well first impression was OMG! What a place! Why we had no idea of this place before?! Stunning landscape, private islet, sunrise & sunset at a same place in the same day, giant banyan trees.. Overwhelming! And the staff told me I'd been more than 4 years since the opening. Seriously? The pick-up and check-in went pretty well, our room was on the third floor which overlooked the sea and part of the main beach and the pool. The Treehouse had a magnificent view, the dishes were good though the menu was kind of limited but it was fine. Rock Island is one of the best place to enjoy Phu Quoc sunset, some of its parts was under construction and the opening time should be earlier. Tbh most people came here for the view. The drinks was, well, okay. What impressed us the most were the people there, we happened to know the heavyset guy who swept the leaves at the restaurant deck was the resort manager. How delicated! What a guy! Came to talk to him, he's charming and insightful as well. But the one who made our day, made our stay was receptionist who has a green/blue flaming tattoo on his wrist. He planned everything for us when we're staying there. He took us to his secret spots in the resort where the most scenic photos taken. He even gave us the detailed schedule for our 2-day motorbike trip around the island when we left the resort. What a guy. We really appreciated it. Thank you Nam Nghi for making our stay suprisingly memorable. We'll definitely come back as soon as we can!
Really enjoyed our holiday at the beautiful Nam Nghi resort. Nam Nghi exceeded our expectations. The villa was beautiful, the food was fantastic and the staff were so lovely. We have fond memories of lounging beside the pool, swimming in the sea, snorkelling, drinking margaritas at the Rock Island bar while the sun went down, and the lovely candlelit dinners in the evening. A very restful break. Thank you to everyone at the Nam Nghi for looking after us so well!
