IHG Hotels and Resorts is set to open its first resort under its luxury brand Regent Hotels and Resorts in Vietnam this spring.
Regent Phu Quoc will be located off the southwest coast of Vietnam, 15 minutes from Regent Phu Quoc International Airport. About half of the island is a national park, with 314 km² of lush rainforest designated as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
The 176 suites and 126 villas with private infinity pools were designed by Blink Design Group and are inspired by the “tropical abundance and tranquil environment” of the island, with Long Beach as a backdrop. The interior-exterior layout of the villas and the complex as a whole pays homage to Gian Nha, a style that includes small courtyards in a traditional Vietnamese house.
The resort’s architecture offers a modern take on Vietnamese roofs, while an interpretation of the local timber truss structural system (known as Bovi) has been incorporated into the patterns of the screens, carpets and fittings. Interiors also offer floor-to-ceiling windows with ocean views.
The resort offers six restaurants and bars, including Oku, a French-Japanese restaurant serving cuts of beef and sushi in an Omakase counter; Rice Market, an all-day restaurant offering cuisine from southern Vietnam and north towards the Chinese border; Ocean Club, a Mediterranean-inspired beachfront venue with a live DJ; Lobby Lounge, an all-day dining and beverage venue; Bar Jade, a speakeasy for craft spirits and custom cocktails mixed with fresh local herbs; and Fu Bar, an open-air pool deck and bar specializing in gin-based cocktails and local bites.
The property also includes a spa with a holistic wellness coach, a range of wellness programs and Biologique Recherche treatments. There’s also a ‘Pedi:Mani:Cure’ salon by podiatrist Bastien Gonzalez, and a health center with a gym, refreshed meditation studio, and rooftop yoga pavilions.
