All 70 rooms, villas and suites at the petite La Veranda Resort have private terraces and fine French Colonial appointments, with four-poster beds draped in sheer linens and dark wood furnishings anchoring light, open-air interiors. Mosaic-tiled ceilings and decorative 19th century artwork enliven otherwise muted spaces throughout the property, including a full-service spa and two restaurants serving a choice of Mediterranean and international cuisine al fresco. Beyond the outdoor pool, the resort offers a range of land and water sport amenities, from mountain bikes to kayaks, as well as badminton and volleyball facilities.
In the Area
While the resort is set on a private beach, the island is home to a selection of other secluded stretches of shoreline. Your concierge can direct you to the best of them, from Ganh Dau Beach on the northwest side of the island to eastern Sao Beach and the quiet western peninsula at Cua Can. Shoppers should head to Duong Dong for the island’s best market and local shops, or local retailer Treasures from the Deep for a selection of pearls. And to maximize any trip to Phu Quoc Island, be sure to explore the surrounding seas on a guided snorkeling or diving excursion. Your concierge can recommend the best outfitter to suit your group.
How to Get There
A unique colonial style hotel design that is full of nostalgic treats on a great quiet white sand beach.
Add to this the most beautiful landscaping to create a wonderland of trees, palms and Birds of Paradise.
And then there's the restaurant and bar... And a great spa
We were made extremely welcome from the moment we arrived. The staff were very attentive and always acknowledged us. The gardens are well maintained and lush. The pool is large and crystal clear and the beach setting is tropical. Their jewel is their restaurant. The array of food and the way it is prepared and presented is amazing and they went out of their way to make me a magnificent french based ham and cheese baguette. We originally thought of maybe 1 night eating at the resort restaurant but ended up eating in the restaurant all 4 nights. A totally enjoyable experience.
3rd time in this Beautiful atmosphère resort... Always enjoyable! The location is perfect with nice beach. The hotel has a flavour of 1920's. Wonderful colonial architecture. Nice lounge and restaurant atmosphere, Very nice room atmosphere , very well equiped. . On the top of that you will take advantage of a so "guests oriented" staff! Always ready to help and make your stay enjoyable. This time I could try the SPA massage...you must try it!
We loved the quiet elegance of this resort. It’s beautifully run - the staff are very attentive. English isn’t widely spoken but we managed to understand each other very well.
The rooms are lovely, our only issue was that the bed was way too soft -- we aren't used to this and found it difficult to sleep for extended periods of time.
The food was fabulous, with a wide variety of healthy and decadent options. And the bar and dining areas were very beautifully set up - more like a private home rather than a hotel.
The actual spa is under renovation and will soon make way for a wellness centre, but there’s nothing to complain about the set up of the temporary spa - it’s really good. The other facilities are understated but beautifully maintained, with lush gardens throughout.
Best of all, though it is by no means small, it feels personal, intimate and customised to your needs. With great WiFi, which means both work and Netflix have been easily accessible.
We only explored two things on the island -- the morning market and the evening market.
We were completely turned off by how dirty the whole island is. Even the sea in front of the hotel was dirty, though the staff were very quick to pick up any garbage that floated to shore.
The situation is very bad and will hardly make the island sustainable in the long term.
If we do come back, it will only be to enjoy the facilities at La Veranda, the rest of the island that we experienced was pretty awful.
The La Veranda resort combines a quaint atmosphere with remarkably efficient and attentive staff. The manucured environment of gracefully-maintained gardens adds to the charm of the colonial architecture of the many small buildings and pavilions.
An effort could be made to provide guests w a card giving taxis clear guidance (map & Vietnamese language instructions). The free airport transfers are convenient and were appreciated.
