Yoga By The Sea - LVR Phu Quoc

An Island Sanctuary

Fringed by white sand beaches and enveloped by the azure shallows of the Gulf of Thailand, Phu Quoc is Vietnam’s largest and most serene island. Isolated from outside influence for much of its modern history, its untouched coastline can now be easily accessed via flights from Ho Chi Minh City, Ha Noi and Can Tho international airports.

More than half of the island’s 528sqm interior is blanketed in dense national park; its remainder is dotted with verdant pepper fields and fragrant fish sauce factories; with vibrant villages and bustling fishing ports. With delightful new discoveries.

A Mansion by the Sea

Positioned on the picturesque sands of Phu Quoc Island in Vietnam’s idyllic southwest, every detail at La Veranda has been inspired by the grandeur of a French colonial mansion. Cocooned by lush tropical gardens, the deep private balconies, high ceilings and unique period collectibles furnishing all 70 spacious rooms transport you to a bygone era when life was slower, simpler. More refined.

Inspired by history, La Veranda’s enticing blend of classical signatures and stylish Vietnamese themes pays tribute to founder Madame Catherine’s storied family connection to Phu Quoc and colonial Indochine. Raised in Phnom Penh and on the picturesque waterways surrounding Tonlé Sap Lake, Madame Catherine’s childhood during the height of French rule inspired her designs for an authentic 1920s French colonial-style mansion – La Veranda’s charming main house.
