Bai Sao Beach
Rated by many as the best beach in Vietnam, Bai Sao boasts turquoise waters, white sand, palm trees and fresh seafood. It's inaccessibility - it's located on the island's east coast down a narrow dirt track - and a lack of beachfront resorts means it attracts relatively few visitors.
Duong Dong Town
The island's capital is a fascinating place to spend a few hours. Photograph the colourful fishing boats in the harbour; dive into the chaotic wet market and shop for local pepper, seafood and fish sauce; visit the night market; and eat at one of the town's many excellent and inexpensive seafood restaurants.
The waters off Phu Quoc are rich in squid and various fish species. Charter a private boat and hop between the small offshore islands, fishing as you go, and cook your catch on the onboard barbecue.
Pepper & Pearls
Phu Quoc is famous both for its black pepper and for the quality of its pearls. Visit one of the island's many scenic pepper plantations and sample peppercorns at all stages of growth, and then visit a local pearl farm to learn more about pearl farming and purchase pearl jewellery.
The Wild Northwest
The northwest of the island offers quiet coves, charming fishing villages, rainforest treks and views of the Cambodian coastline. Tour the area by private car or for real adventure, go by motorbike.

The JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay Resort & Spa, set on the southern sandy shores of Phu Quoc is a 20-minute drive from the airport and a destination in its own right. Designed by Bill Bensley to pay homage to the fictional historic Lamarck University, Asian and European aesthetics are blended in quirky style, evoking a whimsical Wes Anderson-esque ambiance that is utterly unique. The design concept is built around a narrative of a French colonial university campus founded in 1880, abandoned in the 40’s after the war, then restored and transformed into a resort by the Marriott International flagship brand. Each building is billed as ‘department’, with architecture and furnishings designed to reflect the subject of study. All 244 rooms offer plush bedding, complimentary WiFi, and fanciful character. Villas come with seafront views, balconies, and private pools; the signature villa has its own 50 meter infinity pool. Guests can unwind and indulge at Chanterelle - Spa by JW, a full service spa offering Ayurvedic treatments, body scrubs and wraps, facials, massages. The Department of Physical Education provides guests with free weights, cardiovascular equipment, and complimentary fitness classes, as well as bike rentals, boating, kayaking, and snorkeling options. Choose to lounge by the Sand Pool, Shell Pool, Sun Pool, or Whirlpool, and sip artisanal cocktails mixed by the Department Of Chemistry Bar. Dining options include an all-day dining restaurant, a beachside seafood grill, a smart casual restaurant serving international fare, and a French-style delicatessen and cafe.
Known locally as the “Pearl Island,” Phu Quoc is a luxurious destination rich in sea tourism and beachside activities. The gleaming white sand beaches and tropical climate of Phu Quoc make it widely known for playing host to some of the region’s finest seafood. Visitors may also indulge in a range of thrill-seeking island activities, from night squid fishing tours to guided pearl harvesting expeditions. Set to open in 2021, the Regent Residences Phu Quoc will be an island resort offering an array of villas modeled to suit the needs of successful, stylish owners. Each villa is a unique architectural masterpiece, and all come with private swimming pool and garden access. Located at the Truong Beach, the Regent Residences Phu Quoc is situated so as to foster regional connectivity and ease of travel; arterial roads and access to one-hour flights to nearby major metropolitan areas are at guests’ fingertips.
This seaside boutique resort has an intimate, romantic feel that’s ideal for couples. Its 70 well-appointed rooms and villas feature cozy interiors and upscale amenities. A stroll through the resort’s tropical gardens will bring guests to one of the four fine restaurants on-site: The Pepper Tree, the hotel’s signature restaurant; Le Jardin, which serves authentic Italian-style cuisine; BBQ on the Beach, where freshly-grilled meats are served up seaside; and Le Bar, where a wide range of spirits, beers, and wines flow freely in an intimate atmosphere. Guests can also enjoy a private barbeque dinner on the beach. Cooking classes are available for those who’d like to learn some of the chef’s culinary secrets, and the on-site spa offers a host of indulgent treatments. For those who’d like some retail therapy without leaving the grounds, the hotel’s shop sells linens and resort wear. Meeting and event facilities are also provided for special and important occasions.
Salinda Phu Quoc Island Resort and Spa
Set on the idyllic oceanfront of Phu Quoc, off the coast of Cambodia, Salinda is the first five star resort on this Vietnamese island.
