The new InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort, Vietnam, which opened on 28 June, has plenty of activities, services, and amenities tailored especially for those travelling with children.
The resort itself sits along the tail end of Long Beach, a mere 15 minutes’ drive from the international airport and 20 minutes from the island’s main town of Duong Dong. This spot along the 20 kilometre stretch of beach is a great place for families to experience picturesque tropical beaches and the pristine waters of Phu Quoc.
Big activities for little guests
InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort offers an incredible 250-square-metre Planet Trekkers Kids’ Club for families where 4-12-year-olds will be fully supervised. Activities include games and themes that introduce children to Vietnamese culture, the arts of dancing, acting, and crafting, such as conical hat and lotus lantern making to be worn and lit during the daily sunset ritual. Also featured are drama lessons, dress-ups and a show at the resort’s auditorium for their biggest fans – the parents. Water-based activities at ‘Splash!’ family pool include time on the water slide and games, feeding the Koi fish, and hunting the gnomes in the herb garden.
InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort also has a dedicated children’s dining area, which doubles as an exciting ‘Kids Can Cook’ cooking school, leaving children entertained for hours. Guided by the resort’s chefs, supervised by professional associates, children can not only learn and practice preparing their favourite treats, but also gain knowledge of local ingredients.
Parents can enjoy their time relaxing at the exclusive HARNN Heritage Spa, or enjoy a glass of champagne at INK 360 Sky Bar, with 360 degree views of Phu Quoc and the surrounding waters. The resort provides a daily schedule of ever-changing recreational and watersport activities that are suited to all-ages. There is also a games room called The Hideout complete with computers, videogames and consoles, reading corner, and an extensive library of DVD movies and board games.
Across the resort there are four swimming pools to choose from. Oasis pool, situated close to the beach, has been designed for a leisurely and relaxing escape and is a serene space of calm surrounded with spacious pool decks and beautiful panoramic views across the ocean horizon. The infinity lap pool Vista is ideal for an aquatic workout or leisurely laps in a calm environment, while the lively Splash! family pool has been designed specifically with children in mind.
