In Search of Nature and Serenity this Summer at Green Bay Phu Quoc Resort and Spa

Phú Quốc can still offer a haven for nature lovers seeking a peaceful place to reconnect with their surroundings.

 Recent years have witnessed Phú Quốc take a major hit in public opinion with declining tourism numbers to match thanks to reports of price-gouging and rampant over-construction at the expense of the natural surroundings that made it appealing in the first place. Yet all is not lost and some accommodations such as Green Bay Phu Quoc Resort and Spa seek to maintain the island’s endemic beauty via responsible construction and sustainable operations alongside the fostering of wellness journeys.

First opened in 2017 in Cửa Cạn on the serene northwest coast, Green Bay Phu Quoc was established with preservation in mind. The villas and buildings were built around and amidst the jungle trees without the need for extensive landscaping. Rustic aesthetics consisting of bright recycled wood, clean stones, and understated color allow the island’s inherent charm to shine while eco-friendly designs maximize natural breezes and comforts. Stepping into the open-air lobby or onto a shade-graced porch, one is met with clean air filled with the chirping of wild birds. Blessed with both sunrise and sunset, it is a pocket of nature that aims to showcase the best Phú Quốc has to offer.

 Green Bay Phu Quoc also wants guests to experience what the island once. Phú Quốc’s ancient origins and heritages are apparent in the stilt-house-inspired architecture and the seamless flow from nature to domesticity they make possible. Guests have opportunities to further immerse themselves in traditional local life via in-resort activities such as a Phú Quốc Xưa cooking class at familiarizes guests with Phú Quốc’s authentic flavors, preparation and presentation methods. The resort’s recreation team also provides folk games and ocean activities that further introduce the daily rhythms found on the island before it became a tourism hub. 

 This timeless hideaway atmosphere particularly appeals to guests coming from busy, urban lifestyles in Saigon, Hanoi, or abroad who want to savor a slower pace and simply take in some nature. With responsible vacationing at the forefront of their minds, small touches go a long way, such as Green Bay Phu Quoc’s minimizing of plastic amenities and spaces that require no air-conditioning to remain refreshing.

Guests to Green Bay Phu Quoc rarely leave the expansive forest grounds during their stay. A variety of activities cater to this experience, most notably wellness offerings. People can practice yoga surrounded by towering, vine-draped trees graced by the occasional appearance of a shimmering butterfly. Or, for those that prefer the feel of sand in their toes, yoga classes are also held on the beach at dawn, when the morning light gilds the tips of waves.

The intermingling of the outdoors and self-care extends to the spa services for a more complete wellness journey. The resort features two spas, one situated on the beach and another sequestered in the forest. Both locations reveal how the true sounds of nature are always more calming than a recording played in a stuffy enclosed space. 

Green Bay Phu Quoc appeals particularly to couples and families who yearn for the outdoors. The latter group, especially, often has extra energy. For those with a sense of adventure, tennis courts, kayaking, bicycles, snorkeling, and net fishing all provide opportunities to soak up some sunshine. 

People certainly do not need to leave the resort for healthy, delicious meals thanks to several on-site dining options. The namesake restaurant serves a variety of familiar Western dishes and a buffet breakfast that make use of the best local ingredients while Gió specializes in Vietnamese and pan-Asian meals. The seafood is particularly fresh and the menu offers a great introduction to the rich diversity of southern Vietnam’s cuisine. Guests can even get a close-up look at the on-site garden that supplies much of the fresh produce and cook some farm-to-table island favorites.

With summer’s hot and sticky days gripping much of the world, a retreat to nature sounds particularly appealing. With this in mind, Green Bay Phu Quoc has introduced a variety of exclusive offers including a family nature getaway that prioritizes complimentary activities and vouchers for in-house services and the luxury getaway package for stays in the premier villas with spa treatments, a personal guest experience service and other complimentary indulgences. For those fed up with the season’s oppressive climate in stifling urban settings, Phú Quốc might offer the ideal reprieve.
