The good thing about Phu Quoc is it’s visa-free entry for all nationalities.
After spending hours on finalizing a hotel, I ended up with Nam Nghi, knowing well it’s going to be secluded. The first of it’s kind stay for me, where we didn’t step outside the resort. Airport, hotel, airport. I must say I felt guilty to not have seen anything else – a night market, some local market, any local shops, even the streets or anything, but we made sure we enjoyed it.
The room, the view, the cleanliness, the service was all spot on. The beach was very clean and water blues were gorgeous.
The room was modern. The bathroom, rustic, yet chic. I was immensely happy with it.
The food and drinks, over their four different restaurants we tried was decent but didn’t bowl me over. Disappointedly, it was more international-ish, and not as many vegetarian Vietnamese options. Vegetarian local food is what I’d prefer, always!
We dined here the night we arrived. The buffet breakfasts were served here. We had our lunch here as well.
Plenty of options for breads, pastries, muffins, freshly squeezed juices for the buffet spread. I requested them to make me vegetarian noodles, which they did. And it was great on both days – stir-fried the first day, pho like on the second.
The xeo pancakes were pretty for lunch were good, the pizza was sad.
The best part was the meals with ocean views and the sound of waves. The drinks were average. They lacked in both the flavours and the spike 🙂
Rock Island Club
From the Phu Quoc Island, to another mini one – we took a little boat in the evening to here to get drinks. A superb place to get a drink or two.
Memories from that evening and dinner include meeting a relatively elderly couple at The Rock Bar earlier, and then here. They were, lovingly, still talking to each other and not into their phones like my dear husband. Yes, I can brag that I consciously don’t browse my phone while dining or lunching out.
