JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay offers 20 per cent discount and free resort credit for stays until 31 October
Couples looking for an immersive cultural escape and families looking for guaranteed summer sunshine and endless activity options alike need look no further than Bill Bensley’s fantastical beach front resort on the palm fringed island of Phu Quoc. For the ultimate summer escape the island’s fantastical JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay is offering 20 per cent off and exclusive Summer Rewards in the form of up to GBP135 of resort credit, for stays longer than four nights, which can be spent on indulgent spa treatments or incredible feasts at the resorts restaurants and bars.
This fantastical Asian resort is the vision of famed architect and designer Bill Bensley. Letting his imagination run free, Bensley dreamt up a fictional ‘Lamarck University’ as the basis and backstory for the resort – and the collegiate vibe is evident at every turn. Exclusive ‘Field Trips’ offer guests the chance to play castaway for the day on the remote island of Maerut (albeit with a personal chef!); take a Zoology trip to discover the island’s unique ecosystem whilst enjoying a memory-making Safari; get out on the water with their or Marine Biology field trip; or go on an educational Island Exploration to uncover the history and culture of Phu Quoc.
A timetable of ‘extra-curricular activities’ is as extensive as you’d expect from a real university, with Vietnamese language lessons; French pastry making classes; stand-up-paddleboard yoga; lantern making classes and traditional Vietnamese cooking lessons being just some of the activities the whole family and couples alike can enjoy. For those who love the outdoors, the pristine white sands of the ‘ice cream beach’ provide the opportunity to snorkel among teeming coral reefs or kayak along the rugged coastline. Landlubbers can rent bikes and head off on an adventure to the An Thoi open market, Coconut prison, or Ho Quoc Pagoda, or simply take in the charms of this palm-fringed island. Back at the resort there’s a games room complete with table tennis, a pool table and more board games than time to play them, perfect for guests with a competitive spirit!
There’s even the option for guests to choose their room based on their ‘academic’ interests. For instance, accommodation might be in the Zoology Department, where looming entrance gates are flanked by elegant elephant statues and leopards lounge atop the gate posts; or the Conchology (the study of shells) Department, which looks over the ultra-Instagrammable shell-shaped infinity pool. The luxurious double and twin rooms have been designed so that neighbouring bedrooms can connect to become a spacious family suite.
For those looking for complete privacy, the resort’s eight expansive villas are the perfect option. Ranging from one to three en-suite bedrooms they cover between 180 – 700 sqm respectively, each with its own distinctive interior design, private pool, garden and living room.
With the resort’s Summer Rewards, guests also receive resort credit which can be redeemed on luxurious spa treatments at the resort’s award-winning Alice in Wonderland themed spa or on gastronomic meals in the resort’s five restaurants: from immersive fine-dining experiences at Pink Pearl, freshly caught seafood at the beachfront Red Rum pavilion; delicious croissants and pastries at authentic French patisserie French & Co; or light-as-air sushi at the Department of Architecture’s restaurant, Tempus Fugit. International ‘fare with flair’ is also on offer at the Department of Chemistry bar, served on day beds for the ultimate in casual dining.
