This upmarket boutique resort provides a restful, idyllic sanctuary in a beachside location on the west coast of Phu Quoc. It’s decidedly laidback in character and is designed to be a 'home away from home' for visiting guests. Originally the property was the holiday home of a spice trader and his family, and although it's grown and evolved considerably over the years, it continues to acknowledge and appreciate its roots.
The Modern Wing was constructed in 2016 and offers a range of stylish, contemporary rooms. The Heritage Wing, on the other hand, dates back to the late 1990s and offers more traditional decor and design features. Rooms in both wings are well presented and well furnished throughout, with plenty of space and amenities on offer. Rooms come with air conditioning and a ceiling fan, as well as a canopy-style bed with mosquito netting, tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary water. Note that none of the rooms have a television.
The Spice House is the resort’s restaurant and is open daily for three meals. Breakfast is served buffet-style, while the lunch and dinner menus feature an eclectic mix of Vietnamese and Mediterranean dishes. Out on the beach there’s The Malabar, a relaxed and informal beach bar serving an array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as light bites.
Straddling the main public beach is a private stretch of sand reserved just for resort guests. There are three swimming pools available: one for adults, one for children and an infinity pool designed for everyone to use. Cookery classes are recommended for those looking to learn about the local cuisine and excursions around Phu Quoc can be arranged, including trips to nearby fishing villages, visits to local temples and pagodas, diving expeditions and day trips to the island’s national park. This expansive, protected area is home to diverse wildlife and is a good place for hiking and cycling.
Children are welcome and while there's no dedicated kids club, youngsters will no doubt enjoy playing on the beach and in the designated children's swimming pool. Parents are reminded to keep an eye on their children all the time.

Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
Fiona and Kevin
