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?
How to Get There
Everything was perfect: location first, direct on the beach. Amazing swimming pool, good restaurant, careful service and, last but not least, excellent value for money. I recommend this place to everybody need to escape from stress and troubles.
I have to say staying in Chen Sea is the best choice for my trip on my birthday. I used to stay in many hotels and resorts in Phu Quoc, last time I stayed in The Shell but there was no such impression about service. It is a big WOW for this resort, nice beach, staffs are well trained, friendly and helpful from door keeper, driver, receptionist, service staffs and house keepers. They are very kind and very polite, enthusiastic. Great experience ever, good job for manager to maintain that good service. Big thanks for great hospitality, I will introduce to all my friends and colleagues. Next trip I am planning to stay in south of Phu Quoc coz there are a lot of nice islands there but I will not mind staying here again, I will accept to travel a pretty far to An Thoi pier just to get this good service again. One more thing I like about this resort coz they use all toiletries made from herbs such as ginger, lemongrass, lime... safe for the earth and close to nature.
Fantastic location. Secluded beach. Infinite pool. Great gardens. Beautiful villas. Big sized rooms. Attentive service. Friendly staff. Tasty breakfasts. Watersports (mostly free of charge). Spa. And the list goes on. One week here will charge your batteries.
Ps: An added bonus: the small neighbour restaurant, Bamboo, is a lovely lunch spot.
Just fabulous. A very well appointed resort. Direct access to private beach. Lounge chairs on lawn, on sand, beside the pool as well as hammocks. What more could you ask for when you need to recharge your batteries while sipping on a cocktail.
The staff are sensational. Exceptional service, fabulous food - both local and international with an Italian flavour.
Three friends and I booked out one of the villas with a private pool for a weekend getaway from the city. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. The staff were attentive and everybody was friendly, from the waiters to the gardeners. The beach was great and we enjoyed the free water sport activities available to us. The infinity pool was wonderful at sunset too. Every part of our stay was so relaxing including the free 15min massage on the beach! Thank you for an amazing stay. We’ll be recommending you to friends for sure!
