AccorHotels, the leading operator of international hotels in Vietnam and Asia Pacific, announces the opening of Mercure Phu Quoc Resort & Villas, the group’s second hotel on the island of Phu Quoc. The newly refurbished resort, which features 72 villas with private terraces, offers both privacy and accessibility on Vietnam’s increasingly sought-after island destination: it sits on Truong Beach and is just five minutes from Phu Quoc International Airport and 7 kilometres from the town of Duong Dong.
“A strategic opening, Mercure Phu Quoc Resort & Villas will accommodate holiday makers and travellers on the increasingly popular island, especially those seeking to ‘switch off’ or simply enjoy the beach and unique ecotourism activities in the area,” said Mr. Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for AccorHotels Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and the Philippines. “As the third Mercure in Vietnam, the resort strengthens AccorHotels’ commitment in the country to growing the Mercure brand, which combines international service standards with local charm.”
Designed in contemporary Vietnamese style, the 72 villas feature private terraces, LED TVs with satellite channels, coffee and tea making facilities and a minibar. The luxurious beach front Executive Pool Villas are built with private swimming pools with underwater lounge chairs, bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs and separate living rooms.
“At Mercure Phu Quoc Resort & Villas, guests can explore the island offerings and experience the area’s authentic local culture,” said Mr. Remi Faubel, the resort’s General Manager. “Phu Quoc is becoming favoured for its stunning beaches and untouched natural environment, and our staff are committed to helping guests experience the best of the island.”
Taking advantage of the resort’s prime waterfront location, Little restaurant overlooks the ocean and offers both local and international cuisine, while the Blue Bar offers beautiful beach views and a variety of cocktails and light snacks served poolside. Located at the hotel lobby is the Dolphin Bar, the perfect place to unwind and chill in the evening over a refreshing cocktail or wine.
Whether it’s relax or play, facilities such as the outdoor swimming pool with Jacuzzi, 24-hour Fitness Centre, Pure Spa and complimentary kayaking, tennis, soccer and beach volleyball provide plenty of options for leisure activities.
For meetings, conferences, parties or corporate retreats, the hotel boasts a fully equipped function room ideal for private and corporate functions. Its meeting facilities can accommodate up to 80 guests for conferences or cocktail receptions as well as numerous business needs.
With the majority of the island designated as a national park and protected marine habitat, Phu Quoc has become increasingly sought-after for its beautiful beaches and unspoilt natural environment. Perfect for scuba diving and snorkelling expeditions, Phu Quoc is a 50-minute flight from Ho Chi Minh City.
