Patrick Basset, Accor Vice President Vietnam, Philippines, South Korea and Japan said, “MGallery is a label that has been attached to special collection of hotels world wide. These selected hotels are expressive, interesting and attract travelers that place the hotel stay at the centre of their travels. La Veranda Phu Quoc is no exception, offering a unique experience in a memorable setting.

The hotel has just completed an extensive brand enhancement process, which has involved the development of new services and rituals and the deployment of a new identity. La Veranda Resort will be a worthy addition to the MGallery collection of hotels.”

La Veranda Resort is located on the white sandy Duong Dong Beach on Phu Quoc Island, the largest island in Vietnam. This property is integrated as a conduit between tropical lush green jungle and the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand.

 La Veranda Resort is styled after a French Colonial seaside mansion featuring dark wood, mosaic tiles, exposed feature brick work, unhurried ceiling fans, double doors and high ceilings.

Vietnamese touches are evident throughout the 43 guest rooms and villas with the carefully selected decorative items that adorn the corridors and period furniture.

Pepper Tree, the hotels restaurant, offers creative dishes including ‘Tushi’, which is a harmonious and a tempting combination of Spanish Tapas and Japanese Sushi.

The hotel’s spa is spacious, airy and calming with a range of products that use 100% natural and carefully blended ingredients to help soothe the mind, relax the body and stimulate the senses.

 A wide range of treatments are conducted by a team of professionals. Tai Chi or Chi Qong exercises are available options for guests, by the hotel swimming pool or on the hotels private sandy beach.
