VNAT’s report showed that in the first quarter of 2024, international tourists to the pearl island of Phu Quoc increased more than 200% year on year, in which the Republic of Korea and Taiwan (China) sent the most tourists to the island.

The above positive signs are partly the result of close coordination between local authorities and business communities to enhance the position and competitiveness of Phu Quoc tourism.

Besides taking advantage of the unique strengths of nature and local culture to build new tourism products, Phu Quoc has been focusing on developing professional human resources, investing in infrastructure and facilities to meet tourist needs and form world-class destinations.

A series of high-end hotels and resorts with unique designs have been established, contributing to putting Phu Quoc on the world’s luxury resort map. A typical example is JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay - "a masterpiece on Kem Beach" designed by Bill Bensley, known as the king of resort design. Quality tourism services have contributed to positioning the island as a high-end resort destination, familiar to the rich as well as many domestic and foreign stars.

Recently, Premier Village Phu Quoc was honored in the Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice’s Best of the Best Awards 2024, among the Top 3 luxury hotels in Vietnam, Top 21 luxury hotels in Vietnam - Asia, and Top 10 hotels and resorts in Vietnam./.
