Escape to another world and experience the luxury of Grand Mercure La Veranda Resort on the tropical island of Phu Quoc. Although the French returned control of the island to Vietnam in 1939, the resort features a modern European decor with a decidedly French influence. The hotel's prime location on Duong Dong Beach creates a tranquil backdrop that sets the scene for the ultimate relaxation experience. The lushly landscaped grounds and brick pathways enhance the resort's charming European feel.

With just 43 rooms, each with a private balcony, a stay at La Veranda Resort feels more like visiting a private estate than a resort. The decor of the rooms is traditional yet airy and open, thanks to the extremely spacious bedrooms. The rooms are well-laid out and spotlessly clean. Four poster beds, draped with soft curtains, give a romantic feel to the bedrooms. In addition to evening turn down service, other special touches offered by the resort make all the difference. The staff delivers fruit bowls and candies in the evenings, while an excellent selection of complimentary toiletries are refilled daily.

The Pepper Tree Restaurant overlooking the ocean offers incredible views all day, but especially at sunset. The large, international menu includes many dishes made from local seafood and produce. Be sure to enjoy an evening meal at The Beach Grill. A variety of barbecued meals on the menu include seafood specialties and imported lamb, all grilled to perfection. For ice cream, light refreshments and cocktails pay a visit to the Lounge Bar. Other restaurants located near the resort provide a change of pace and more inexpensive dining choices.

Besides the pool and ocean, guests can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. The staff will gladly arrange boat tours and deep sea fishing trips, as well as other sightseeing trips. Tour leaders arrive at the hotel to pick up guests for excursions. Opportunities for snorkeling and scuba diving allow guests to enjoy an up close view of the amazing underwater sea life. Courts for badminton and volleyball are another popular way to pass the time. The resort rents bicycles guests can use to explore the incredible natural beauty of the island. The resort's spa offers massages and beauty treatments designed to pamper guests. The luxurious amenities of the resort and exquisite pampering by the attentive staff make for a memorable stay.
