Regent Phu Quoc

A lush, lavish paradise

Step into Regent Phu Quoc and you’re transported into a modern, tranquil haven. In the lobby, smooth black stone covers the floor and columns, a black-and-white marble table holds fuchsia orchids and hydrangeas and pink roselilies, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlook a pond with greenery. But as you wander deeper into the property, past ponds teeming with koi and through the verdant grounds with palms and hibiscus flowers, the more Regent unveils itself.

Almost every path frames a view, like the series of thresholds that lead your gaze to art like Charming Deeps, bright hand-blown crystal pieces by Lasvi that resemble coral on a black wall, or oversized letters spelling “Regent” planted in the sand with the ocean as the backdrop. Though see the most stunning vista from all-day restaurant Rice Market, where a pool under dramatic canopies trails off to the Gulf of Thailand.

But this getaway isn’t simply eye candy. The lavish accommodations at the all-suite-and-villa hotel come with their own pool. You’ll be showered with complimentary extras, including daily pressing or laundry (up to three pieces), shoeshines, mini-bar drinks and snacks and even cabanas. Six restaurants and bars include Rice Market, with its impressive multi-room breakfast buffet that offers everything from a pho bar to croissants in unusual flavors like mojito; Jade Bar, a sexy speakeasy that resembles a luxury train car; and the rooftop Fu Bar with its infinity pool. As if this tropical paradise weren’t enough to help you unwind, the spa cinches it with innovative treatments in sumptuous treatment suites.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Every accommodation at the Vietnam hotel feels opulent. Nestled in tropical foliage, the spacious Lagoon Pool and Beach Pool villas provide privacy and put you closer to the sand. The Sky Pool Villas sit farther away in a 10-story building, but they give you an incredible view of the property and water from your own infinity pool. Regardless of which suite or villa you choose, they all have the same stylish, contemporary décor; a standalone tub and separate shower; electronic Toto toilets; and ocean panoramas. To make it feel like home, they also come with refrigerators stocked with beverages (alcoholic and nonalcoholic) and a pantry with snacks like chips, cookies, dried mango and walnuts — all of which are complimentary and replenished daily.
  • While you can hit the beach, the five pools are star attractions. Our favorites include the Family Pool, an Instagram-worthy oasis framed by cream canopies above and palms and daybeds on the sides, and the Regent Club Rooftop Pool, an infinity pool that’s a great spot to catch Phu Quoc’s vivid sunsets while sipping gin cocktails.
  • Don’t miss dinner at the Japanese-French restaurant Oku. The island’s only omakase counter wraps around talented chef Andy Huynh, who was born in Vietnam and raised in San Diego. Huynh features local ingredients and techniques he honed working at Nobu.
  • Get premium pampering at The Spa at Regent Phu Quoc. Try the Biologique Recherche facials that include an Instant Skin report that maps out a custom skincare routine and good-for-your-nails mani-pedis from podiatrist to the stars Bastien Gonzalez. The couples suite is particularly luxurious — the vast space comes with a Jacuzzi, a rain shower for two, a sauna and a reflexology path.
  • Take note of the big and small design elements. Singapore-based Blink Design Group sought inspiration from gian nha, traditional Vietnamese houses with small courtyards that offer a sense of place. It translates to stunning indoor-outdoor spaces. Blink took the bovi, a wooden truss, and created a pattern from it that’s used in the bronze screens, white sheets, candle holders, towels and more. Another repeating motif is the king’s well. Every Regent hotel produced an illustration that stems from a local legend; here it comes from 18th-century Emperor Gia Long, who fled to Phu Quoc while being chased by rebels. Starving and thirsty, the emperor thrust his sword into a stone and called on the heavens for help. When he removed his sword, freshwater and fish shot out. This print covers the in-room robes, envelope liners and even the microfiber cloth that housekeeping will leave next to your glasses.

Things to Know

  • Little ones won’t want to leave the excellent Regent Kids club. It offers a movie room with beanbag chairs and racks of sea creature costumes; a library with stools shaped like elephants, rams and other animals; a section of rocking horses; an area with suspended little houses, bridges and a slide; a nook with tents; and a colorful woven installation that’s actually a playground with tire swings. Older kids will gravitate to the computer and video game area. Tip: Parents can buy games like Uno for rainy days and shovel-and-pail sets for the beach here.
  • Charter the Phu Quoc hotel’s beautiful two-bedroom Serenity yacht. Embark on a romantic sunset cruise or explore the coastline with stops for fishing, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming or snorkeling.
  • Upgrade to receive Regent Club privileges, which include private round-trip airport transfers in the hotel’s Range Rover Sport or Mercedes-Benz Viano; access to the top-floor Regent Club Lounge, where you order from menus (instead of the usual buffets) all day long while looking out over the water through the floor-to-ceiling windows; and flexible check-in and checkout.
  • If you arrange an airport pickup through the luxury hotel, visit Regent’s small lounge near the baggage claim. Freshen up with a chilled washcloth and water on one of the lounge’s white sofas while you wait for your luggage.
  • Join the complimentary wellness classes in the gym. The roster changes, but you can find sessions for Tabata (a high-intensity interval workout), stretching, sunrise salutation (a morning yoga flow), sunset yoga, crystal sound bath and reset meditation.
