The InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort was officially opened on June 21, the latest addition to the InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts brand in Vietnam and the 1,000th IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group) property to open within the Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa (EMEAA) region.

The resort combines luxury with unique natural beauty on pristine Phu Quoc Island, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve off the southwest coast of Vietnam.

“We are absolutely thrilled to bring the glamour of the InterContinental life to Phu Quoc,” said Mr. Piero Bellizzi, General Manager of the InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort. “With exceptional facilities for families, couples and business travelers, underpinned by genuine, heartfelt service, the resort promises to offer truly memorable experiences for all our guests. The island itself is a hidden gem, and the opening of InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort helps to put the destination on the map for discerning international travelers.”

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, while 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.

The resort offers a tempting array of contemporary and stylish experiences, including the highest bar on 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 pepper.

Sora&Umi serves authentic Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine with a 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. The beachfront restaurant Sea Shack serves comfort food, tapas, barbecue and grilled dishes such as the signature lobster roll, while beer and cider are served in the Library area stocked with books on 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 healthy traditional Vietnamese and Mediterranean delicacies.

Guests are also able to indulge in serene spa treatments at the award winning HARNN Heritage Spa, designed by Vietnamese architect Vo Trong Nghia and inspired by traditional Asian medicine and naturopathy.

InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort is now accepting reservations for stays from June 28.
