Vo Trong Nghia, Ashley Sutton help design InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort in Vietnam

The InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort opened as the latest addition to the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand in Vietnam, and the 1000th IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) property to open within the Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa (EMEAA) region. It is located on the Phu Quoc Island, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve off the southwest coast of Vietnam.

InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort has an exclusive beachfront; six restaurants and bars; 459 rooms, suites and villas; and meeting facilities.

With the design inspired by the resort's surrounding local area and culture, the rooms, suites and villas have bathtubs, walk-in rain showers, floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies.

For dining, the property has the highest bar in Phu Quoc, INK 360, which has ocean and mountain views. It was created by Australian designer Ashley Sutton. Additional dining venues include Lava, Sora & Umi, Ombra, and Mercado.

The HARNN Heritage Spa was designed by Vietnamese architect Vo Trong Nghia, and was inspired by traditional Asian medicine and naturopathy.

Other amenities at the InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort include spaces for children, such as the Planet Trekkers children's club; children's yoga, arts and crafts, beach volleyball and magic classes; and Kids Can Cook cooking school.

For events, the property has over 2,000 square meters (21,528 square feet) of indoor event venues located in the main resort complex. The 870 square meter (9,365 square foot) Grand Ballroom can hosts up to 600 guests, while a purpose built auditorium seats 130 delegates. There are also various break out rooms, as well as pre-function space for breaks, displays or trade exhibitions. The al fresco Beachfront Garden is ideal for banqueting in natural surroundings.
