Hotel Review of the Pullman Phu Quoc Beach Resort
Curator’s statement

In December 2023, I stayed for several days at the flagship Pullman Phu Quoc Beach Resort for a room and site inspection. Located on the island’s southwest coast, and a short taxi ride from the main town, this modern beachfront resort is ideal for a relaxing break - solo, as a couple or with kids in tow.

This five-star hotel is just 12 minutes from the airport (although you wouldn't guess it once there), and 20 minutes to Phu Quoc's main town, Duong Dong. Renowned architect Salvador Pérez Arroyo gave the hotel its unique modern architecture and ensured that greenery or golden sand makes up 80% of this seven-hectare resort. At the western edge is the 150m stretch of the powdery white-sanded Long Beach (Bai Truong), for hotel guests and the occasional local fisherman. There is also a local street food market within walking distance offering exquisite local fish-based meals at very affordable prices.

Lobby area

Inside the lobby area, one modern space flows seamlessly into the next, with an impressive winding wooden staircase leading to an overhead passageway. The equally modern Lighthouse Bar is an artistic and equally modern centerpiece, leading to one of the hotel's many impressive restaurants.

Room Categories

Having stayed in both a Cabana Room and a Deluxe Poolside Suite, both top-end rooms from the nine available categories come highly recommended. Each space is highly comfortable and features the latest in connectivity and technology, a personal terrace or balcony, walk-in rainshower and advanced Japanese washlet toilet — with the cabana rooms offering direct shared pool access. There are also Beachfront Pool Villas available for those with a large tribe.

Beach and Pool

The beach is a clear draw for the Pullman Phu Quoc - beautiful, peaceful and unspoilt with a towel station, comfortable sun loungers and parasols provided for all hotel guests. But it's the pool area that's this hotel's sweet spot. The largest hotel pool on the island, it is as modern in layout as the hotel itself, with multiple cozy spots to sunbathe away from the crowds, and perfectly layed out for a refreshing swim or visit to the swim up bar.


The hotel has six dining venues on offer. From mouthwatering steaks at the traditional steakhouse on the hotel's highest floor, to the abundance of options at Salt ‘n’ Pepper Restaurant's all-day buffet venue, there's an option for every taste. The casual beach club & bar (with its own swimming pool) also offers tasty bites, with an Asian tapas menu and good selection of drinks.

Need to Know

I recommend the Pullman Phu Quoc to my clients looking for a solo, romantic or family getaway. The service is exceptional with a truly dedicated staff team, and as a place to relax and unwind, it's currently one of Phu Quoc's best modern five-star options. There are numerous activities and nightlife venues to enjoy on this relatively unspoilt island, so reach out and let me plan your perfect holiday if Phu Quoc is on your radar!
