We arrived into Phu Quoc airport in the evening and were very excited for this trip as it would be the first time we’ve travelled as members of ALL (Accor Live Limitless) and experienced a hotel as part of their MyResorts programme – where we enjoyed additional rewards and benefits.
We were greeted by our MyHost Marina, a personal concierge assigned to Gold members and above as well as our private driver. During the journey Marina shared tips and info about the island and the resort before arriving, she explained that she was our go-to contact and would assist with anything we needed during our stay.
After the short drive, we were welcomed by the lovely staff at Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort and offered refreshing welcome drinks while we waited to check into our room. We had a buggy pick us up and take us to our villa where Marina gave us a tour. We had just stepped into our dream home! There was a large open plan living space, 3-bedrooms and our own infinity pool.
We had an exciting day ahead so we relaxed on the couch for the remainder of the evening with some welcome treats.
We woke up to the sunrise peeking through our blinds and we were greeted with the most incredible view of the ocean from the balcony. We had just woken up in paradise!
We were booked in for a private yoga session by the pool at 6:30am as apart of our MyWellness benefits. Our private buggy picked us up 5-minutes prior to beginning and we arrived to the pool where the yoga took place and we were blown away. The yoga was literally in the pool on separate platforms surrounded by palm trees and the calming sounds of water fountains. Our yoga instructor greeted us and we began our session.
After the relaxing start to our day, we walked to breakfast at The Market restaurant where we sat outside looking over the gardens and ocean. There was an impressive buffet style breakfast and we couldn’t go past the omelette and fresh fruit to fuel us for the day ahead.
We spent the remainder of the day down by the water kayaking and paddle boarding on the western beach of the resort, before heading to the pool for a swim and some sunbathing.
After spending time in the water, we headed to the Pool Bar for lunch and with our MyGlass benefit we had free flowing drinks, soft or alcoholic, from 12pm-5pm. We both sat in the infinity pool and looked out over the ocean with a cocktail in hand.
We arrived just before sunset to find a private candlelit table and picnic rug set up on the beach amongst the palm trees. The lovely staff greeted us and the bar staff created us personalised cocktails based on our favourite spirits.
We sat on the beach with our delicious vodka and whiskey cocktails and watched the sun slowly go down behind the ocean before being seated for dinner, where we began a delicious 7-course meal with wine paring. We were so full after dinner that we decided to take the desserts back to our luxurious villa to enjoy them.
After being wined and dined and completely spoilt, we had a slow start to our third day with a morning swim in our private infinity pool, followed by a bike ride through the resort, before heading to breakfast at The Market again.
When we arrived we were greeted by the spa staff before being offered a light snack and refreshing drink. We discussed what treatments we would like and decided on a full body scrub and signature therapy massage.
We were led to one of the private couple spa rooms which had incredible views over the ocean and its own private spa pool. We began with the scrub and followed with the signature therapy massage which left us feeling totally relaxed. The masseurs then left us to enjoy the private spa with delicious tea-tox drink.
After feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated, we headed to lunch at Corallo where we enjoyed a tapas style lunch of various cuisines.
We then spent more time exploring the incredible infinity pool that runs from one side of the resort’s island to the other. Sitting under the palm trees in our own little space, it was the perfect way to spend the afternoon.
After a much slower, relaxing day, we headed to dinner early where we ate at The Market again, this time trying more of the local cuisine on the menu. We loved the freshness and colours in the food and decided to order a few dishes we could share between the two of us. Our waitress for the evening explained to us the origin of the dishes were from and how they vary in different parts of Vietnam.
We woke up early to watch the sunrise on our final morning on the island, before packing our bags and getting ready to check-out. We decided to make the most of the next few hours by heading to the western beach again for a swim and sunbathe.
After the last few days of bliss, it was nice to sit and take in the island life one last time.
Once our baggage was picked up, we had our private buggy pick us up and take us back to reception to say goodbye to our MyHost Marina and the other staff that made our time at the resort so wonderful.
