IHG’s upper luxury brand Regent Hotels & Resorts has made its debut in Vietnam with the opening of its new resort in Phu Quoc island.

Named as Regent Phu Quoc, the all-suites-and-villas resort houses 176 suites and 126 villas.

BLINK Design has designed the resort, which features contemporarily designed interiors and expansive windows and verandas.

The property boasts six restaurants and bars including Taste Gallery, providing signature dining and cultural exploration; and Rice Market, which caters locally inspired and reinvented classic dishes of Vietnam and China.

Ocean Club serves local and Mediterranean cuisine and rum-inspired cocktails, while an exclusive sky pool terrace and bar, Fu Bar, offers gin-inspired cocktails and unobstructed ocean views.

In addition, Regent Phu Quoc will welcome two more restaurant and bar in the coming months.

The new additions are Oku, which will cater contemporary Japanese French cuisine; and Bar Jade, which will serve artisanal spirits and custom cocktails with fresh local herbs.

Other guest amenities include The Spa and The Regent Club, Regent Ballroom with a capacity of up to 308 and sophisticated modular space Regent Salon which can host intimate ceremonies of up to 238 people. 

Regent Phu Quoc general manager Juan Losada said: “We are delighted to introduce Regent’s renowned hospitality to Vietnam and look forward to welcoming guests to experience the inimitable island jewel that is Phu Quoc.

“Regent Phu Quoc will set the benchmark for resort luxury in Vietnam and South East Asia, and deliver a truly captivating interpretation of the Regent experience, marrying the calming, the imaginative with a touch of decadence.”

The property is located off the southwest coast of Vietnam alongside a UNESCO-designated World Biosphere Reserve.
