On the island of Phu Quoc, set in a tropical paradise, is La Veranda. A luxury waterfront hotel, with chic-boutique style interiors, it promises total bliss within a stunning beach setting. Grand terraces and panoramic views makes this hotel worth every penny, situated on the protected island with unspoilt terrain within a 19th Century style building. Vietnam’s beaches hit the spot when it comes to total relaxation. La Veranda not only boasts a swimming pool alongside well-maintained tropical gardens but also offers a full day spa to cater for all your needs. A great spot for honeymooners, families and friends to unwind and explore what Vietnam’s coast has to offer.
Our room of choice is without a doubt the Ocean View Villa, with its sturdy four poster bed and sweeping views of the glistening waves. The Villa comes with a perfect private garden, spacious ensuite room and not forgetting the all-important terrace to soak up the sunsets with a glass of wine or two.
A range of eateries give our clients choice when it comes to dining; allowing each night a little variation. We can rely on expert hands when dining in Vietnam. Sunset views from the signature restaurant accompany intimate fine cuisine and beach side barbeques are also available for those relaxed and less formal nights. Le Jardin is a prize spot to enjoy authentic Italian cuisine in the garden or if you wish to sample local dishes, Vietnamese street food and fresh seafood, this is also warmly offered. End your eveing in style with a drink in the art deco Bar after sundown.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
