With 121 luxury rooms, suites and villas, a magical outdoor infinity swimming pool, three spoiling restaurants to choose from, an enchanting Thai Spa, and the incredible famous ‘purple sunsets’ Salinda Resort offers a charming tranquil island retreat in which to relax on your honeymoon or even to host your wedding ceremony.
Perfectly located not far from Phu Quoc Airport and a 10-minute drive from main town, Salinda Resort sits on The Pearl Island of Asia, Phu Quoc Island, the largest island in Vietnam.
Offering 121 spacious rooms, suites, and villas with over 300 members of staff, guests will receive an unapparelled level of service, truly personalised with a ratio of 2.5 staff to each guest. The design throughout the resort is elegant and in harmony with Vietnamese traditions enabling the property to blend into its surroundings, bringing the outside in. The island’s natural environment can be admired from the resort as it encompasses mango trees and lush gardens, revealing the simplistic beauty of Phu Quoc.
Appreciating a truly tropical retreat, guests can enjoy an exotic cocktail by the infinity pool overlooking the ocean before taking in the breath-taking sunsets which set over the beach with their bright purple sky glistening onto the ocean.
Each morning guests can add some fizz to their routine at Salinda Resort’s Sparkling Breakfast, whilst enjoying the soothing sounds of live piano. In the evenings, guests will be able to feast on a wide range of cuisine that goes beyond the traditional Vietnamese dishes. Authentic Vietnamese, Traditional Indian and Contemporary Italian restaurants, all of which are led by native chefs, are on offer to satisfy all cravings. To wind up an evening, the High Note Bar Lounge plays live music which can be accompanied with a drink from the vast selection of music-inspired cocktails.
Salinda Resort prides itself for being a sustainability focused boutique hotel, and has introduced the Purple by Salinda Sustainability programme which aims to help the local community, promote diversity and cherish local culture on the island of Phu Quoc. Salinda Resorts is home to over 100 types of trees and flowers, all of which were planted by the family since their arrival to Phu Quoc Island.
Guests can relax and unwind in the comforts of the Salinda Spa, which prides itself for using natural ingredients from Phu Quoc. The professional Thai therapists bring traditional treatments and ancient wellness secrets to Salinda Resort.
