Whimsical, unique resort that exceeds expectations!

New Jersey, USA

I created a long review for this property only to be told by TA that I was limited to 1500 characters! Ouch! There is so much to say about this resort. This is one of the most exceptional hotels in the JW Marriott portfolio. Designed by Bill Bensley, this quirky, fun resort will knock your socks off! The hotel is designed around the fictitious Lamarck University and each building is a different university department - e.g. the fabulous bar is The Department of Chemistry, the residential rooms are in faculties such as Dept of Architecture, Ornithology, Fine Arts, etc. and are decorated to reflect the faculty. The attention to detail at this hotel is amazing, and so beautifully done. If I remember correctly, there are only 234 rooms in the hotel which has a large footprint on the island of Phu Quoc. Consequently, even at full occupancy, the resort will probably never feel crowded. The best part of the resort - the staff! Absolutely wonderful service; friendly, engaging, very guest-oriented and genuinely work to create a great guest experience. We interacted with several of the management team while there, and want to give huge thanks to Morgan (the Hotel Mgr.), Raza (Room Dir.), Varun (Food/Beverage Dir), Flora and Mikki (Front Office mgrs) and the entire service team across the resort. We couldn't have had a more wonderful time ! Loved the resort, the ambience, relaxing around the pools/beach, and 7 days went by way too quickly! Run, don't walk, to this resort!

A very pleasant stay

I had a very pleasant 3-night stay at the resort. A kind of resort that you would strongly recommend to your loving friends and family. You would go back home with tons of instagram-worthy photos. Staffs and services are top-notch. I have not yet mentioned the beauty of the Emerald bay. What a dream to wake up to a view like this. I’d love to go back any days.
