About Mui Ong Doi

Mũi Ông Đội arose from an area in south eastern An Thoi that was only accessible by boat (canoe).  It was an area famous for the small temple located here dedicated to Emperor Gia Long.  The temples main attraction is a “magical well” called Giếng Tiên, which is shrouded in mystery and an interesting legend.  Before, most people came  and there were daily morning trips available from Kem Beach.  Today a new 4 km road has opened up Mui Ong Doi to the masses.  A gorgeous white sandy beach (Bai Ong Doi), shallow coral reefs, stunning ocean view, and even some great hiking opportunities exist here.  It is also home to a lavish beach resort complex which has spread throughout the area and has opened up both sides of the peninsula, occupying most the beach and central areas.  For us, Mui Ong Doi feels like an island on an island – it is just a unique and magical place, and one of the few places where you can watch both the sunrise and sunset on Phu Quoc Island.

For non-resort guests, the scenic attractions here involve the beach and the emerald sea.  Snorkeling is relatively decent and participants can discover some unique marine life.  The emerald color sea is perfect for swimming, beach sports, and fishing.  Exploring the surrounding natural forest is also a great way to discover some of the areas unique flora and fauna – keep an eye out for macaques, hornbills, and monitor lizards and if you come at the right time, you will see plenty of wild orchids.  Then there is the gorgeous beach – Bai Ong Doi, a crescent shaped beach maintained by the resorts here.  You can spend the entire day just sitting on this beach and it will not be a wasted day.  Day trippers can rent beach chairs for the day or just find a patch of sand to call their own.  There is a pharmacy, restaurant, and beach front bars here as part of the resort complex.  The more desolate areas of Mui Ong Doi lie at the extreme southern tip, where you can view the Hon Dam Trong & Hon Dam Ngoa islands, part of the An Thoi archipelago, and watch the world’s longest oversea cable car zip by.

Where to stay

Mui Ong Doi is dominated by the Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort complex.  It is a lavish beach resort which also has villas and vacation properties.  The feeling of staying here is reminiscent of bora bora, with some bungalows directly over the translucent waters.  Premiere Village Phu Quoc Resort is one of Phu Quoc’s best accommodations and quite possibly one of Asia’s best new luxury beach resort complex.
