Dusit International, one of Thailand’s foremost hotel and property development companies, made its Vietnam debut last month with the opening of Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort on the country’s largest island, Phu Quoc.
Located in the South of Vietnam in the Gulf of Thailand, Phu Quoc is a fast-growing tourist destination known for its long, sweeping beaches, rich coral reefs, fresh seafood, pearl farms, and dense, tropical rainforest.
Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort Operating under Dusit’s upper midscale Dusit Princess brand, the new fourstar resort is centrally located on the island’s west coast overlooking the stunning Bai Truong beach, a 20 plus kilometre stretch of sand also known as Long Beach. Phu Quoc (PQC) International Airport and Duong To town centre are only a short drive away. The resort’s dining options include Thai, Vietnamese and Western cuisines; and Soi 14, a stylish beachfront bar and lounge where Thai Chef Somnuck Attaworn uses premium ingredients to put a contemporary spin on Thai street food favourites.
During their stay, guests can easily arrange to visit popular local attractions such as Phu Quoc National Park, part of the UNESCO designated Kien Giang Biosphere Reserve; the sweeping and secluded ‘Bai Sao’ beach; the quirky Dinh Cau night market; and various traditional temples. The Vietnamese Ministry of Tourism aims to attract at least 500,000 foreign tourists to Phu Quoc Island this year through strategic promotions and the development of attractive tourism products.
