Chen Sea Resort is highly personalised, authentic Chic, boutique style – Complimented by an attractive cove beach
Description & Location
Chen Sea Resort is a truly delightful boutique resort with the emphasis on local design features and personalised service.
Located on a quiet “private “cove beach on the west coast. 35 minutes’ drive across the island from the international airport.
Phu Quoc Island is located off the south-west coast of Vietnam, just 3 miles south of the border with Cambodia. For years the main industries were farming and fishing, with black peppers and fish sauce being the most important. In recent years, tourism has become the dominant force and so many new and rather large hotels have emerged. Whilst the development is (almost painfully) obvious in places, there are still pockets of authentic charm. This lovely little hotel is a prime example.
The name Phu Quoc translates as Fertile Nation. 50% of the island still remains national parkland, areas with mountains, forests and waterfalls. The 20 twenty beaches within the 112 coastlines are seen to be amongst the best in the region.
The island capital Duong Dong has a rather limited ramshackle charm, with a lively night market. It is about 20 minutes’ drive south. The main appeal of the island will be the beaches and water, but students of history will find the island interesting and diverse.
There are daily flights from Bangkok (65 minutes) and Saigon (60 minutes).
Chen Sea Resort just 36 villas.
All are inspired by local materials and woods, simple, deliberately rustic and in keeping with the destination, yet with pleasing comforts. With the exception of the Duplex 2 bedroom Villas, all are single storey thatched roofed style.
The Sea View Villas (86sqm) are in the second row, spacious and sea facing.
The Beach Front Villas (78sqm) are slightly smaller, but still nicely spacious and are located just a few strides from the sand.
The Jacuzzi Villas (150 Sm) are spread around the gardens and have a sea view with generous in and out living space.
The Duplex 2 Bedroom Villas (240sqm) are set furthest back from the sea, but still just a few minutes stroll through the gardens. They have master bedroom on the top floor. On the ground floor you have a 2nd bedroom, living room and garden with private plunge pool. The design resembles an old Chinese / Vietnamese mansion house.
