Dusit will this month open the Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort on Vietnam’s largest island, Phu Quoc.
Located in the South of Vietnam in the Gulf of Thailand, Phu Quoc is a fast-growing tourist destination known for its long, sweeping beaches, rich coral reefs, fresh seafood, pearl farms, and dense, tropical rainforest. The AsiaTravelTips reports
Operating under Dusit’s upper midscale Dusit Princess brand, the new four-star resort is centrally located on the island’s west coast overlooking the stunning Bai Truong beach, a 20-plus kilometre stretch of sand also known as Long Beach. Phu Quoc (PQC) International Airport and Duong To town centre are only a short drive away.
The family-friendly resort comprises 108 guest rooms, ranging from 32 sqm Deluxe Rooms to 90 sqm Suites, most of which offer ocean views.
The resort’s dining options include an all-day-dining restaurant, a lobby lounge, a swim-up pool bar serving Thai, Vietnamese and Western cuisines, and Soi 14, a stylish beachfront bar and lounge where Thai Chef Somnuck Attaworn uses premium ingredients to put a contemporary spin on Thai street food favourites.
The centerpiece of the resort is a large infinity pool with ocean view, set within a lush tropical garden. Other facilities include a fully-equipped gym, a kids club, a large ballroom accommodating up to 190 people, and a spa.
During their stay, guests can easily arrange to visit popular local attractions such as Phu Quoc National Park, part of the UNESCO designated Kien Giang Biosphere Reserve; the sweeping and secluded ‘Bai Sao’ beach; the quirky Dinh Cau night market; and various traditional temples.
“Perfectly equipped to meet the needs of business and leisure travellers alike, this is a stunning property in a beautiful location with gorgeous sunsets almost every day,” said Markus Lohenstein, General Manager, Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort. “It’s a real honour to be tasked with debuting Dusit’s unique brand of gracious hospitality in Vietnam. I look forward to working with my team to make this resort a huge success, as we delight our guests with our distinctive service, and showcase the best the island has to offer.”
The Ministry of Tourism aims to attract at least 500,000 foreign tourists to Phu Quoc Island this year through strategic promotions and the development of attractive tourism products.
To meet international demand, PQC International Airport has opened new direct routes to destinations such as Thailand, China, Korea, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Germany and the UK. Regular domestic flights to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) and Hanoi are also available. A visa exempt rule grants international visitors 30 days access to the island upon arrival.
The resort will soft open on 22 May 2018.
