Where to stay in Phu Quoc

To answer that question directly you need to first understand the make up of the island. At 574 square kilometers, Phu Quoc Island is the largest island in the 28 island archipelago that makes up Phu Quoc District. Phu Quoc Island is the center of all tourist related activities and it is here where you will find 99% of all the accommodation options that are available. At first glance Phu Quoc seems overwhelming, especially considering the large quantity of hotels, resorts, beach areas, and distances between towns but we have broken the island down into manageable chunks to help you make the right decision when choosing where to stay on Phu Quoc, whether it is a hotel or a beach resort.

Below you will find the regions on Phu Quoc where you can stay as well as the best hotels and resorts in those areas.

Bai Truong, also referred to as “Long Beach”,  is the most popular beach on Phu Quoc Island and it is located along the western coast within a vast township called “Dương Tố”. The aptly named beach stretches for almost 20 km, is classified as a “yellow sand beach”, and it is one of the best places to watch the famed Phu Quoc ocean sunsets. Packed with beach resorts, hotels, restaurants, and temples it is mere minutes from the Phu Quoc International Airport as well as Duong Dong Town, the economic capital of Phu Quoc District. Most of the island’s best restaurants are found in this area, and most happen to be on a single popular street known as Tran Hung Dao.
