The modern twist on a contemporary 4-star resort lifestyle, charming Vietnamese culture, and the rich heritage of Thai hospitality blends nicely to create an unforgettable stay. The resort features 108 elegantly designed rooms, ranging from 32sq.m Deluxe Rooms to 90sq.m Suites—most of them with superb ocean views overlooking Bai Truong Beach.

Operating under Dusit’s upper-midscale Dusit Princess brand, the new four-star resort is centrally located on the island’s west coast overlooking the stunning Bai Truong Beach, a 20-plus kilometre stretch of sand also known as Long Beach. Phu Quoc International Airport and Duong To town centre are only a short drive away.

“Beside service and food quality meeting international standards of a four-star resort, sincerity is our primary focus to win customers’ confidence. I want to bring the best care to customers,” said Nguyen Thi Thu, general director of Linh Chi Ltd., Co.—the owner of the resort.

“We choose Phu Quoc as it is a very potential market with strong tourist growth. We plan to open more hotels in Vietnam in the future, most likely in Danang, Ho Chi Minh City, and Hanoi,” said Boon Kwee Lim, COO of Dusit Hotels and Resorts.

Located in South Vietnam in the Gulf of Thailand, Phu Quoc is a fast-growing tourist destination known for its long, sweeping beaches, rich coral reefs, fresh seafood, pearl farms, and dense, tropical rainforest.

Addressing the event, Ngo Hoai Chung, vice chairman of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, said: “In the bright picture of the tourism industry, the hotel sector is the brightest spot. Hospitality draws the largest investment, produces the fastest growth, and has the most well-trained human resources in the tourism industry. The changing face of Phu Quoc tourism is the most convincing evidence for the explosion of hotels and accommodation in recent times.”

“Currently, Vietnam has 25,600 accommodation establishments, with 508,000 rooms meeting international standards. We can boast that the quality of the Vietnamese hotel system is on par with developed countries, as many of our hotels were named among the best hotels and resorts in the world—Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort can be one of them.”

According to the authorities of Phu Quoc Island, with the future opening of international flights from France, the UK, Sweden, South Korea, Japan, and regional countries, the island is expected to be more attractive to international tourists.

Phu Quoc is now home to 16,000 hotel rooms, with 7,000 being rated as five-star and higher. And the number will rise further and the opening of the Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort is evidence.

“With many special incentives on land use and leasing and investment, Phu Quoc as one of the Special Administrative-Economic Zones proposed in the Draft Law on Special Administrative-Economic Units will become an attractive destination for tourism property developers in the future,” Chung forecast.

Phu Quoc targets to welcome around seven million visitors by 2030, with international arrivals to account for 30-35 per cent.
