Description & Location

The island of Phou Quoc is just one hour flight south-west of Saigon, close to the border with Cambodia.  Known for its relaxed atmosphere and superb beaches, La Veranda is one of best-known hotels , and despite increased competition it remains a popular choice with European clients .

The island, which is located within the Gulf of Thailand, is generally at its best January through to August, with the autumn months having the highest rainfall.&nbsp 10 years ago the island was hardly known and catered for a few backpackers . Farming , fishing and the production of fish sauce and black pepper were the main industries . Now it is one of the fastest growing destinations in SE Asia with numerous hotels , with some seeming to cater totally for the regional ( mainly Chinese ) markets . La Veranda has a different appeal , with a classic French ” Ginger Bread ” design , elegant but almost intentionally not opulent , subtle comforts , attractive mature tropical gardens leading down to an attractive beach .

La Veranda is a 15 minutes drive from the airport.


La Veranda is designed in a French colonial style, with simple elegance. The 70 rooms and villas continue the traditional theme with wooden floors and chic Vietnamese touches.

Most of the rooms are located within the main building, although you also have 21 free standing villas.

Most rooms have 4 poster beds, so twin rooms need to specifically requested.

La Veranda is Regarded as one of the top hotels on the island. Come for the colonial sense of style, a delightfully laid back atmosphere, well-appointed accommodation, mature tropical gardens and the beach.

There is easy access to the town, where you will find some simple authentic dining options plus several more on the road leading into town

Phu Quoc is developing fast. Expect to see many hotels under construction , and yes there are already pockets of tourism excess . Just a decade ago the emphasis was on farming and fishing, but tourism is now the dominant industry. It is a good beach option to consider after a tour of the south of Vietnam. Best in the winter / spring months when the weather is generally at its most settled .

For many mainland Vietnamese, working on Phu Quoc is considered to be a “hardship posting ” so it is quite difficult to attract good regional staff. Pleasant yes, but communication might be difficult. High demand for the really good ones from the every growing hotel openings does not help the situation.

There are several 50 minutes flights daily from Saigon. There are also flights from Bangkok, Siem Reap and Singapore.

Note – If you are flying from Singapore & Bangkok and are just visiting the island of Phu Quoc, you do not require the usual visa for Vietnam.
