Vietnam’s Phu Quoc, dubbed ‘Pearl Island’, has embraced a brand-new Best Western Hotels & Resorts property.
Best Western Premier Sonasea Phu Quoc is a beachfront resort situated on the island’s west coast, just eight kilometres from Phu Quoc International Airport.
The landmark property features an impressive 566 rooms and suites, as well as a number of villas surrounding a 300m-long lagoon pool. Room sizes range from the spacious 35m2 Deluxe Rooms to the luxurious 245m2 Presidential Villa, and guests staying in the suites and villas will have access to an Executive Lounge.
F&B outlets at the resort include the Essence restaurant, serving exquisite Vietnamese and international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner; the Oasis Pool Bar, featuring a Mediterranean-inspired à la carte menu; and C View Sky Bar, a chic rooftop bar and restaurant.
Guests can also enjoy a number of recreational facilities at the hotel, such as Thala Spa, a fully-equipped fitness centre and Nemo’s, the resort’s kids’ club.
Finally, flexible meeting spaces and business amenities in a highly accessible location will benefit corporate guests to the hotel.
“With international visitor arrivals to Vietnam reaching record levels, the country is in need of high-quality branded accommodation with extensive facilities for business and leisure travellers,” managing director of international operations – Asia, Best Western Hotels & Resorts, Olivier Berrivin declared. “As one of the world’s largest and most renowned hotel groups, Best Western Hotels & Resorts is perfectly placed to contribute to the expansion of Vietnam’s tourism industry.”
The opening of Best Western Premier Sonasea Phu Quoc represents an important phase of Best Western’s Asian expansion strategy. The company has identified Vietnam as one of its key target markets, due to the country’s buoyant economy, surging visitor numbers and tourism-friendly government policies. In recent months, Best Western has signed a series of impressive new hotel projects in Cam Ranh, Ha Long, Vung Tau and Quang Binh, most of which feature more than 500 keys.
