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.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
