Bambusa Resort, Phu Quoc

Situated on an island (Phu Quoc) just off of Vietnam and Cambodia is the Bambusa Resort. I'm dedicating an entire post to this place because of how amazing it was - the perfect place to kick back and sort out our livers and laundry before the next step of our travels.

I don't think Phu Quoc is a usual stop on the backpacker trail, but I'm really glad we stopped here for five days. We didn't do much, bar a couple of beach trips, but travelling is tiring and we knew we would need some time to relax between exploring Vietnam and our next part of the trip. Bambusa was the perfect place for that! 

As it was just before peak season, the resort was pretty quiet which was ideal. On some days we were the only guests which made the whole place feel even better, like a secret waiting to be discovered! The staff were so friendly, and went above and beyond to make our stay fantastic. I really couldn't recommend their service enough! 

The resort itself was beautiful. It's a 20 minute walk to the beach (factoring in the early 30's heat!) which is absolutely stunning, and set in pretty much the jungle! Quite a lot of the island is a national park and you can definitely see this as you make the 30 minute drive from the airport to the resort. We could hear birds chirping away from our room!

The room we stayed in wasn't massive but it was beautiful. The walls were decorated with bamboo, the bed was huge and the bathroom was lovely as well. 

And the pool, oh the pool! It was absolutely where we spent most of our time and it was lovely. Cold during the day, warmed up by the sun at night and the perfect place to sit and recharge for a few days. Even better, the restaurant overlooked the pool so we had some pretty gorgeous evening views as well. I don't know if they offered an all inclusive package, but we mainly ate on site. I'd say that dishes cost around £5pp, so not the cheapest in Asia but certainly not expensive. I'm sure there are other restaurants around but we were both very happy to kick back, relax and not do much!

If you're thinking of heading to Phu Quoc, I would really recommend Bambusa for a relaxing break!
