La Veranda Resort Phu Quoc MGallery By Sofitel was recently awarded the continent category as Asia’s Luxury Romantic Beach Resort 2017 at the World Luxury Hotel Awards held at St Moritz, Switzerland. The recognition as ‘Asia’s Best’ in the Luxury Romantic Beach Resort category is a first-ever win by any resort property in Vietnam. The award was given at a gala event attended by hundreds at the 10th edition of the annual World Luxury Awards.
“Being recognized as Asia’s best in the Luxury Romantic Beach Resort category is a true source of pride for the entire team at La Veranda Resort Phu Quoc. I would like to thank our peers who voted and believed in us and our business partners for being fans of the experiences we create and the memorable storytelling that we weave for our guests.” said general manager Jean Pierre Gerbet.
He further added that: “This global award simply propels us to continue to strive to set the industry benchmark for boutique luxury and exceptional guest experiences not only in Vietnam and Asia, but worldwide.”
Established in 2006, the 70-room luxury boutique resort, part of the MGallery By Sofitel collection, is the first luxury property on Phu Quoc Island. Located centrally on Duong Dong beach, La Veranda provides an experience evocative of a French colonial mansion by the sea. Its architectural design and atmosphere creates a distinctive style with comfort and indulgence reminiscent of a bygone Indochine era. Phu Quoc island, located in the southern province of Kien Giang, aims to lure over 1.8 million tourists annually. The tourism sector aims to fetch more than 11.15 trillion VND (499 million USD) in revenues this 2017.
