JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay Resort has been crowned the number one resort in South East Asia at the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2019. Voted for by Travel + Leisure’s global readership of avid travel connoisseurs, these prestigious annual awards honor the top travel destinations, hotels, and companies worldwide.

The awards are based on an annual reader survey, this time around from November 6, 2018 to March 4.

“After gathering a fantastic array of awards in just two years since opening, we are thrilled and extremely proud to receive this wonderful recognition from the discerning readers of an internationally-renowned authority such as Travel + Leisure,” said Mr. Ty Collins, General Manager at JW Marriott Phu Quoc. “This accolade is tremendous testament to our commitment to creating enriching luxury experiences for JW Marriott in a truly remarkable setting.”

Renowned for its picture-perfect white beaches and fuchsia sunsets, Phu Quoc is a secluded island trove off the southern coast of Vietnam. A whimsical property on the idyllic island’s “ice cream” beach, JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay was conceptualized by celebrated architect Bill Bensley and features a unique, larger-than-life design based on the fictional narrative of a legendary academy of learning - Lamarck University.

To celebrate this sought-after accolade, JW Marriott Phu Quoc is offering up to $200 in Resort Credit for guests making a reservation and staying from one to three nights from now until October 31.

Nestled on the pristine beach of Bai Kem, JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay is the proud flagship of JW Marriott Hotels and Resorts in Vietnam. It offers a selection of 234 artistically-unique, well-appointed rooms, suites, and villas where Bill Bensley’s whimsical touches blend harmoniously. Boasting five restaurants and contemporary bars, the crafted dining experience will satisfy even the most discerning palate, including Tempus Fugit, French & Co., Red Rum, Pink Pearl, and the Department of Chemistry bar. Meetings are redefined in the 715 sq m Grand Ballroom, with spacious breakout rooms elegantly designed to suit every need. A wide range of enriching experiences are waiting to be explored, from cultural events, artisanal shopping experiences, and ultimate indulgence at Chanterelle-Spa by JW, to water activities at the resort’s private beachfront.

The JW Marriott hospitality brand is part of Marriott International’s luxury portfolio and consists of beautiful properties and distinctive resort locations around the world.
