It is too bad a nightclub has been built on the nearby island there resulting in a lot of light pollution at night.
Local people are basically nice and friendly even there’s a language barrier.
One sad thing for me was the service I got at the hotel I was staying. Some staffs chose who to take care of first: in other words, they prioritized the guests depends on their criteria. IMHO staffs at my hotel seemed to focus on Western guests (from US or UK specifically). They mightn’t have known many Asians including Japanese do speak English, have traveled a lot with abundant experiences of staying the high end resorts especially in Southeast Asia, since we’re same Asians and Southeast Asian countries are quite accessible from Tokyo.
The beauty of nature here is stunning among all the Southeast Asian resorts as far as I know but the service at a hotel depends on. You must be careful to choose where to stay.
I love this island very much. All difficulties and uncomfortableness I’ve had were from the lady at the front. (I asked her name but won’t write it here expecting her to change as a hospitality professional of the hotel).
Fusion Resort Phu Quoc still has room for improvement in terms of the hospitality. I’d love to visit the island but I won’t use the same hotel again if they remain as they are. For now, what they offer is not 5 Star service compared to others such as Four seasons hotels and resorts even the price is almost same. I’ve never treated like this before till then—quite surprising.
I’d like to emphasize that it’s no offense to this lovely island and the kindest local people. They are so nice to us even though we have communication difficulties. I really LOVE Phu Quoc and highly recommend especially for those already have been to almost all southeast Asian resorts. I definitely come back again!
The last pic is Sim liquor, made from Phu Quoc Sim fruit. Tastes like sweet brandy or rum. I brought it back to Tokyo and enjoyed it with my friends at a house warming 😊.
