    Our opinion

    A secluded colonial-style property with ample charm. 

    Hotel description

    Just off the white sands of Duong Dong Beach on the west coast of the picturesque Phu Quoc Island, La Veranda is a colonial-style property with ample charm. Sandwiched between the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand and the verdant tropical overgrowth behind, the resort is a welcome retreat in which to enjoy nature’s gifts. With delightful gardens and glamorous interiors, La Veranda offers an intimate atmosphere on an exquisite beachfront. A westward facing property with stunning sunset views by night, La Veranda supplies abundant charm on the verge of a white sand beach. Step off the beach and into the grounds to immerse yourself into a scene evocative of a French colonial seaside mansion. Its architecture comprises salmon-hued roofs atop an arrangement of wooden verandas affront yellow-tinged exterior walls. Red brick pathways guide guests through quaint gardens, from which you can step directly inside. The rooms total a mere 70, each decorated with ceiling fans, dark wood furniture, tiled floors and four poster beds draped in white muslin. Interior walls are delicate pastel shades and shuttered doors open with onto private balconies to extend living spaces into the open air. Here, comfortable wicker seating allows you to enjoy views of either the gardens or the sea. There is more than a hint of romance in the boutique-style décor. Families can occupy any of the room types, with the maximum occupancy being two adults and one child staying on a cot or an extra bed. For larger families, interconnecting rooms are also available. Elsewhere in the hotel, guests can dine in a number of venues, including The Pepper Tree, which offers sala-style dining in an elevated perch, where open walls frame stunning sunset views. For more casual diners, barbeques on the beach are a brilliant way to satisfy younger members of the family. Lunchtimes can be spent on the beachside lawns of Le Jardin, and evenings can be spent in style in the exquisite art deco environment of Le Bar. Families can participate in water sports such as kayaking to get the best aspect of the island – from the sea – and snorkelling or diving sessions allow you an insight into the wonderful underwater seascape. There are other sporting facilities available, including volleyball, badminton, cycling and ping pong. For parents weary of beach or poolside adventure, make the most of the babysitting service and perhaps venture to the spa. There are even boat excursions to take you on a voyage to discover more of the coastline of this, Vietnam's largest island.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    The island of Phu Quoc is best-loved for its long, uninterrupted, secluded beaches, many of which will be empty when you find them. If you venture away from the resort, however, you will discover much more that the island has to offer. To the north, is the tropical jungle of the Phu Quoc National Park, rich with rare species that live deep in the forest. The town of Duong Dong is the best place to witness the colourful chatter of a Vietnamese market. The market here continues throughout the day, and is replenished as the fishermen bring in the latest catch. The largest industry of the island is Nuoc Nam, or fish sauce, which can be tasted as part of a tour at a local factory. You should also try the pepper grown on one of the local pepper farms. Vietnam is responsible for almost 60% of the world’s supply of pepper, due to its fine quality; an industry that dates back over 9,000 years.
