Wanderlust Tips Magazine | 3 fantastic resorts for exceptional vacations to tropical beaches

Occupying a 20-hectare plot within the private bay of Cua Can, Vung Bau, in the North of Phu Quoc, Fusion Resort Phu Quoc is the first wellness-inspired resort on this emerald isle with both beach and riverfront private pool villas.Much like the design and layout of this elegant beachfront property situated on Vietnam’s famous tropical island hideaway, Fusion Resort Phu Quoc’s staff are warm, welcoming, and extremely down-to-earth. Smiles are both plentiful and genuine as they meet and greet their guests like new members of the Fusion family.

Fronting the resort’s guest-relations team are the so-called Fusionistas, a friendly and energetic bunch whose main job is to turn your vacation into one-of-a-kind personalised experience. Brimming with equal measures of hugs, high-fives, and locals-only knowledge, they are at the heart of what separates Fusion from the fuss and formalities of traditional five-star resorts and hotels.

Your Fusionista is there to guide and support you for the entire duration of your stay,” says Fernando Arroyo, the resort’s General Manager. “They’re warmer and friendlier than a butler, but also much more creative than a concierge. So, whether you want to organise a private tour of one of Phu Quoc’s famous black pepper farms, for example or if you want to arrange a seafood barbecue on the beach one evening, or if you simply want some insider information on the local area, your Fusionista will be happy to help.” With 97 spacious contemporary yet rustic thatched villas, all with private pools, outdoor lounging and dining areas, and many with beach or river view, this low-lying resort provides a revitalising natural environment amid the pristine vibes of a peaceful fishing culture.

As with the brand’s other resorts, their latest opening, proudly offers Fusion’s unique “all-spa inclusive” service, guaranteeing each guest at least two ‘spa journeys’ per day at no extra cost. Built around a lush pepper orchard and featuring its own adults-only pool, simply strolling through the peaceful grounds of this elegant spa facility is enough to send you into a blissful, lemongrass-infused daydream. There’re also daily yoga, meditation, and tai chi lessons, plus a modern fitness centre and personal trainer service. “Vacations are a great time to relax,” says Fernando, “but they’re also the perfect opportunity to get fit, get healthy, and shake off the excesses of modern life.

After a swim, a workout, or a nutritious breakfast on the beach, the toughest decision at Fusion Resort Phu Quoc is whether to stay glued to the swaying rope lounger outside your villa—with a book in one hand and a freshly pressed fruit juice in the other—or head to the spa and get their signature Natural Living Pepper massage, featuring Swedish massage techniques and Fusion’s homemade black pepper oil.

Through the brand’s original, wellness-inspired ideas and concepts, each executed in a sensible, logical, and often playful way, Fusion Resort Phu Quoc presents the modern traveller with a feeling of true openness, an opportunity to bring balance to the body and mind in a quiet, secluded, and thoroughly reenergising natural environment, right at the water’s edge.
