Located on the west coast of Phu Quoc Island right on the beach is the stylish La Veranda. This fairly large, sophisticated resort aims to provide guests with somewhere they can relax, unwind and enjoy a quintessential Vietnamese beach holiday in a prime location. There’s plenty to see, do and experience both on the resort and throughout Phu Quoc. Guests can fill their days with activities, or take things at a more leisurely pace. The property’s design is inspired by French colonial-style buildings of the past, though the resort is still in many respects a modern and contemporary place to stay.
There are a total of 70 rooms and villas, each offering views of the beach and the Gulf of Thailand, or the tropical botanical gardens. Amenities common to all types of accommodation include a satellite TV and DVD player, a ceiling fan and air conditioning, complimentary bottled water and a minibar. There’s also a private terrace or a balcony. All the accommodation combines traditional design with modern touches.
French and Vietnamese dishes are served at The Pepper Tree, the resort’s main restaurant. It offers fine dining experiences, which guests can enjoy while taking in views of the ocean. For a more informal option there’s Le Jardin, which offers al fresco dining on the open beach deck and whose menu features a range of international classics. In addition to these, there are regular beach barbecues and a full-service bar with a broad range of drinks available. Cooking classes are recommended for those looking to learn about the local cuisine, and private candlelit beach dinners can be arranged.
There's plenty to do on site at the resort. There's a pool and fitness centre and a spa offering an enticing array of treatments. Fashionable beachwear, souvenirs and keepsakes can be purchased at La Boutique. The stretch of beach directly in front of the hotel is private, and here guests can play volleyball and go kayaking, snorkelling or scuba diving. Tours and expeditions to various places throughout Phu Quoc can be arranged. Some of the island’s many highlights include its fine beaches, sprawling pepper farms, bustling markets and unspoiled natural park, known for its abundant rainforest wildlife.
The resort is child friendly, with a babysitting service available on request. Larger families are advised to book two interconnecting rooms and parents are reminded to keep their children under constant adult supervision, particularly when on the beach and near the swimming pool.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
