Where to stay on the island

Daisy Resort “is visionary in design and style: bungalows are built into the hillside so that all can have a panoramic view of the treetops and the lush greenery that envelops the resort … the grounds, layout, pool and bungalows are all remarkably well done … natural materials such as exposed stone, terracotta floors and clear stained wood furniture keep rooms grounded, while clean lines, sleek smooth finishes, high ceilings and modern fixtures give it contemporary elegance.” (Travelfish)  

JW Marriott Emerald Bay Resort & Spa: “The brainchild of renowned hotel architect and interior designer Bill Bensley, the whimsical resort is said to be the first-ever ‘experiential hotel’ built entirely around a fictional history inspired by French naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck … the sprawling beachfront resort, nestled on Khem Beach, is also home to a 50m-long infinity pool -- claimed to be the longest pool in a presidential suite in all of Asia.” (The Telegraph)

La Veranda Resort: “The poshest of Phu Quoc's dozen hotels and guesthouses, La Veranda sports paddle fans, butter-yellow exteriors, whitewashed louvers, and tropical gardens recalling a colonial plantation … freestanding deluxe villas are the best choice for their sea-facing porches, spacious bathrooms, and cathedral ceilings … there's a good in-house restaurant, a lively bar, and a modest spa, but the real draw is the location: smack on a 12-mile stretch of soft sand with a prime sunset vantage over the sea.” (Travel & Leisure)
