Overview

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.

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.
