You could scour the entire length of Vietnam’s coastline and it’s quite possible you wouldn’t find a better beach than those on the comparatively tiny island of Phu Quoc. Located near the border with Cambodia, this white-sand escape has a low-key and relaxed character, with verdant jungle and crystal-clear waters.
The order of the day on Phu Quoc is relaxation – something that comes easy at Chen Sea Resort & Spa. Facing the Gulf of Thailand, the boutique hideaway is tucked into a hidden bay where you can mess around with non-motorised watersports or simply relax on a luxury sun lounger.
Among the highlights are the 36 villas, decked out in traditional timber with tropical outdoor bathrooms. Elsewhere around the resort, there’s an infinity pool with ocean views, a spa with private treatment villas, a Mediterranean-Vietnamese restaurant (the owners are from Italy) and a beachfront bar area dotted with swinging cocoon seats and soft beanbags. It’s natural and understated, and yet you’ll want for nothing. Isn’t that just the way it should be on a paradise island?

My wife and I stayed here for our first 5 nights in Vietnam before heading to the mainland. It was our first time in Vietnam and could not have been better. The place is down a dirt track which doesn't prepare you for how beautiful it is. The staff, every single one of them, are happy and smiling. The reception will organise taxis, trips and even called an optician for us to see if our glasses were ready. You could simply stay in the resort without too much bother but we did rent a scooter to visit Starfish Beach, go snorkeling, go cycling and visit the night market in Duong Dong. The resort offers free kayaking, windsurfing and paddle boards to use in a super safe bay where the waters are calm and super warm. We had a few rainstorms and lighting events but they added to the atmosphere. Food was great and the breakfasts were a treat with everything imaginable. If you are looking for an experience away from the mainland, get here now before it becomes (maybe) overdeveloped. Thanks Chen Sea Resort for being super
Excellent location, with a quiet and spacy private beach. Bungalows very confortable.
Special thanks for Mr. Gianni, recreation responsible, as he was always helping in any need we had, inside and outside the hotel.
