Take a little respite on tranquil Phu Quoc Island, a Vietnamese island off the coast of Cambodia.
Fusion Resort Phu Quoc, is the latest project from the same people who brought you Fusion Maia Da Nang, listed among Conde Nast Traveller UK’s 2017 Top 20 Readers’ Choice Best Overseas Hotel Spa. This 11,210 sqm property houses the island’s largest spa and wellness facilities and would make the perfect haven for your getaway.
Take advantage of the resort’s new three-, five- and seven-day ‘wellness voyages’, focusing on physical fitness and mental wellbeing by way of meditation, yoga and massage. Apart from daily yoga or fitness sessions, eat mindfully with healthy meals prepared by executive chef Edmond Kwan, a Hong Kong-born, Canadian-raised chef who specialises in spa cuisine. All packages include accommodation in one- or two-bedroom villas with their own private plunge pools, wellness consultation and assessment, spa treatments, round-trip airport transfers and priority check-in.
Those opting for five- and seven-day voyages would have the additional opportunity to try cooking classes and cultural excursions such as bike riding to Cua Can, a fishing village on stilts, and a visit to Nguyen Trung Truc Temple, dedicated to a local fisherman who led the resistance against French colonial forces in the 19th century. Prices start at US$949 per couple for a three-days-two-nights package in a garden villa.
