WHEN THE MÖVENPICK RESORT WAVERLY RESORT PHU QUOC FIRST OPENED ITS DOORS IN MARCH 2020, it felt like an inauspicious moment for the travel industry at large. Fast forward several months, however, and Vietnam’s highly competent handling of the COVID-19 crisis means that this Southeast Asian nation is now one of the world’s safest destinations and welcoming travelers again. Since Vietnam boasts kilometers of sandy coastline and palm-covered islands, this is a boon for families who have longed for the comforts of a beach vacation over the past months.
Phu Quoc, a jewel-like island in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand, reigns supreme as one of the loveliest oases is all the land. Ong Lang Beach, a dazzling, 2.5-kilometer white-sand isolated strip, earned a nod as a top destination from CNN in 2018. Nestled directly on those sands, the Mövenpick Resort Waverly Resort Phu Quoc has already won the honor of being named The Luxury Family Resort at the World Luxury Hotel Awards this year.
The accolade is well-deserved for this welcoming haven, where more than 305 hotel rooms boast sea-view balconies. Multigenerational families will love the 79 villas, which offer plenty of space for children and adults to relax. And while it would be easy to lounge in the sun by the pool all day, there are all sorts of delightful diversions available. From Aqua Zumba to a special “Chocolate Hour” to private villa BBQs and sunset foot massages, there are all sorts of ways to make your stay especially memorable.
