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
This was our third visit in two years and this time for two weeks via the direct non stop flight with TUI from London Gatwick. Just 11 hours 20 minutes flying time. I cannot think of a better hotel or location to stay at for a relaxed and luxurious winter holiday. From the time you arrive until you leave, you are so well looked Father by All Of the superb staff. The attention to detail and the quality of service is simply the best. A lovely beach location in this old colonial mansion, beautifully maintained and decorated, away from all the the large resort type hotels makes this a gem of a location. I cannot find anything to criticise, which is rare, and shows just how good this hotel is. The buffet breakfast gives a great start to the day, after the 8am yoga class by the beach ! Which is a complimentary option we took up. Two weeks of fitness and spa treatments by Mr Trung, who is simply again one of the best instructors and physio, ably assisted by Luan the new assistant manager together with the Spa team are superb, and will be enhanced earlier next year when the new Wellness Center opens. We had Spa treatments with Ms Phan and Ms Linh who again are top quality therapists. Ensure you have a deep tissue massage, pedicure, manicure, and any particular aches and pains then discuss with Mr Trung. The Guest Relations Department under Annia, now assisted by Enzo, and the Front Desk under Miss Vin will ensure your holiday is the best. Just ask them anything and they will do their best. The restaurant under Tilm and Ms Tram again provide such a good personal service. Afternoon tea again not to be missed. We have already booked again for our 4th visit Two weeks next December, to what we now look on as our second winter home.
We visited La Veranda 5 years ago and loved the place. A slightly old-fashioned hotel, but in a good way! They look after each guest as he or she were the only one there.
Staff are extremely friendly - as well as professional. Several of the staff actually remembered us from our visit 5 years ago. That's impressive!)
The garden is like a dense jungle, with houses and bungalows scattered around, which give each unit a sense of privacy. A lovely pool and beach area in the front.
The Pepperclub restaurant is no. 1 on Tripadvisor (on the whole island). Obviously I havn't tried them all, but it really is a great restaurant. Food, service, ambiance - all top notch.
Facilites include a bar / lounge area, spa, a small shop, buffet restaurant and a gourmet place (Pepperclub).
They also have these 'extras' that make you feel like a special guest; twice a day they walk around the pool/beach and give you cold towels and fruit sorbets. Really refreshing. In addition there are complimentary receptions three times a week in the evening, serving wine/drinks and snacks.
If I should point out one negative thing: the air con. in the rooms are not very up to date. Modern air con. does not make a lot of noise. Unfortunaltely this was the case (at least for the air. con. we had in our room).
The neighboring area has lots of choices for bars, restaurants, small shops etc.
Had six wonderful days at this amazing resort. From the time we arrived until we left we were treated like royalty. We were offered a beach Villa which was really beautiful. So most evenings we sat on our private verandah overlooking the beach and watching the gorgeous sunset. We had breakfast everyday at the beautifully appointed restaurnat on the upstairs verandah. The food was amazing. I can also hightly recomend dinner there. After diner we would go downstairs and have a few drinks as they have a band every evening which was so good. The friendly staff and attention to delail is faultless.This is the first hotel resort I have ever been to that I cannot fault. We definatley hope to return.
This is a smaller hotel, with a more B&B-feel. Staf remembers your name, welcome you on every occassion and do their best to make your stay perfect. Food and drink in the restaurant are delecious and high end. We had een ocean view room, wich offers great views. Go to This hotel.
Everything is being taken care off. Excellent place to relax. This is the second time round. In thela veranda. The staff are very nice and freindly. Is like an oasis. The hole place is look very nice.
