Introducing InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort
InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort has opened its doors, the latest addition to the InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts brand in Vietnam, and the 1000th IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group) property to open within the Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa (EMEAA) region. It is located on the pristine Phu Quoc Island, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve off the southwest coast of Vietnam.
The ideal location to soak up the sun and enjoy breathtaking sunsets
One of the most captivating features of the resort is its position on Long Beach, one of Vietnam’s most stunning white-sand beaches, enjoying glorious sunset views. It is an easy 15-minute drive from Phu Quoc International Airport, and only 20 minutes from the cultural attractions of Duong Dong town.
Thoughtfully designed for families, couples and individuals alike, as well as both leisure travellers and meeting delegates, InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort features an exclusive beachfront, six restaurants and bars, 459 luxuriously appointed rooms, suites, and villas, as well as state-of-the-art meeting facilities, whilst seamlessly combining the sophisticated and cosmopolitan essence of the InterContinental® heritage with the heartfelt rustic charm of the resort’s surrounding local area and culture.
Resort guests are offered exclusive access to a secluded stretch of Long Beach, the perfect location to swim in shimmering waters, soak up the sun, and experience ocean sunsets. In each of the elegant rooms, suites, and villas, the deep bathtubs, walk-in rain showers, floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious balconies ensure a luxurious and inviting space for the ultimate escape in comfort and relaxation.
A culinary journey through local and international gastronomy
When it comes to dining, InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort offers a tempting array of contemporary and stylish experiences, including the highest bar in Phu Quoc, INK 360, boasting breathtaking panoramic ocean and mountain views. Created by award-winning Australian designer Ashley Sutton, the bar is the perfect venue for a welcome toast or celebratory drinks, where guests can sip on a signature cocktail while watching a magnificent sunset and nibbling on tapas-style seafood, caviar and oysters.
Additional dining venues include Lava, a fine-dining seafood and specialty imported meats restaurant using the freshest produce cooked on charcoal grills and lava stone enhanced with a selection of locally produced aromatic peppers such as black, white, red and Tay Giang. Sora & Umi serves authentic Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine with the focus on the restaurant’s numerous live cooking stations, including robatayaki, teppanyaki and sushi. By the pool, Ombra serves home-made Italian cuisine and gelato alongside fresh juices and healthy bites. Beachfront restaurant Sea Shack serves comfort food, tapas, barbecue and grilled dishes such as the signature lobster roll, while beers and ciders are served in the Library area stocked with books about food, cocktails, Vietnamese culture, art, interior design and travel. Mercado is the place for coffee, tea and pastries, as well as themed picnic baskets including Traditional Vietnamese Delicacies, Mediterranean and Healthy.
