La Veranda is a stunning Phu Quoc beachfront boutique hotel that perfectly fuses French opulence with tropical island vibes.
The 70 bedrooms and villas all have private terraces or balconies to look out onto stunning views of the Gulf of Thailand or the gardens. The bedrooms are decorated in neutral tones, with large four poster beds and traditional dark wood furniture. Canopies drape over the beds to create a cosier feel for when it's time to wind down. All rooms feature TV, WIFI, ceiling fans, and sitting areas.
Le Veranda has two different restaurants to cater for all tastes. The Peppertree overlooks the ocean and the pool and serves a range of fresh, fine dining dishes. The Jardin is a more casual affair, serving pizzas and hearty fare near the beach. As well as the restaurants there is also a weekly barbeque on the beach - cooking up the catch of the day - and Le Bar is the perfect spot for a cocktail or two. For those looking for a romantic evening, request a candle lit dinner on the beach, complete with personalised menu and wine list.
The hotel offers a wide range of facilities such as cooking classes, wine tastings, or guests can take relaxation to a new level at Le Spa, which offers natural and locally inspired treatments. Alternatively, simply soak up the sun on the private beach and enjoy the tranquillity of this unspoilt Vietnamese island. There's plenty to do for the active go getters too, with a gym, volleyball and badminton courts, table tennis, bikes and various water sports - including snorkelling, scuba diving and kayaking.
Why we love it
La Veranda was the first luxury property to open on Phu Quoc Island, so they know their stuff!
