Regent to Open on Vietnamese Paradise Island

Regent Hotels are set to shake up the hospitality scene on one of Vietnam’s favorite island destinations with the opening of Regent Phu Quoc this year. 

The new Regent will open on the island in the first half of 2022. Situated off the southwest coast of Vietnam, alongside a UNESCO-designated World Biosphere Reserve and located just 15 minutes from Phu Quoc International Airport, guests will be able to immerse in Regent Phu Quoc’s spectacular 176 suites and 126 villas, set against the serene waterfront backdrop of Long Beach.

Designed by BLINK Design Group, who was inspired by the island’s tropical abundance and tranquil surroundings, the villas at Regent Phu Quoc reveal panoramic views of the pearlescent ocean and sky with a private infinity pool. The resort offers multiple accommodation options perfect for both couples and families, from one-bedroom havens to expansive seven-bedroom ultra-villas as well as beach pool villas with direct access to the pristine white beach, sky pool villas situated high in the Sky Wing boasting breathtaking ocean views, and lagoon pool villas which overlook the striking vista of the resort’s lagoons.

Guests will be greeted by a modern interpretation of Vietnamese roofs, and a variation of the local traditional wooden truss structural system, known as the Bovi, has been developed into subtle patterns found on screens, carpets, and accessories. Another local style, known as Gian Nha, comprising small pockets and courtyards within a traditional Vietnamese house, is the inspiration for the courtyards which feature in villa designs. The boundaries of indoor and outdoor areas blur through intelligent zoning across the resort as an homage to Gian Nha, providing privacy within a luxurious setting in this evolution of a traditional way of living.
