Daisy Resort Village & Spa Phu Quoc
The Daisy Resort Village and Hotel is on the island of Phu Quoc in Vietnam and is a charming, laid back relaxing resort. Our first impression when driving up to the resort was how quaint it was...brightly coloured bungalows in shades of pink, purple blue and yellow were lined around the pool, and were adorned with pink bouganvillias which made a striking contrast against the colours.
We stayed in the village part of the property as we wanted the bungalow style rooms, but further up the driveway is the hotel part which has more standard rooms. We didn't take a wander through that section so can only base my opinion on the village area.
We had a family pool view bungalow which was less than 10m from the pool and had two queen beds. My parents had a standard bungalow and were right next door.
The room was spacious enough and had all the necessities of aircon, tv, wifi etc. This was the first place I have stayed with an outdoor bathroom (I'm still on the fence as to how I feel about it too). Showering outside in the open air while you can hear people walking past is one thing , but sitting on the toilet with bugs buzzing around is another ?
The only negative I had about the room was that every morning my oldest boy was waking with huge swollen bites...not mozzies as he doesnt react to those... we couldn't work out what they were but I had to give him claratyne every morning. On the last morning I realised the sliding doors had a large gap and his bed was right next to the window. Obviously spiders or something else was biting him during the night so would suggest that this gap be closed to stop bugs getting in.
There are two pools at the village part of the resort- a shallow kids pool up top with deck chairs in the water (perfect spot for mums to sit and watch their toddlers) and a deeper one just down the steps. Both were beautiful and warm and great for kids.
There is one main restaurant at the Village area, situated upstairs overlooking the pool. Buffet breakfast is served here and offers everything from toast, pastries and fresh eggs, to cereal, Asian cuisine and more. We never had dinner here but the lunch we had on the deck chairs in the pool was delicious.
SERVICES & FACILITIES
There is an open air gymnasium at the village area, aswell as a day spa offering the usual massages and pedicures. We didn’t use either of these but great to have it there as an option!
There is a shuttle bus which takes you down to the beach bars or into the city area for no charge. The staff calls them when you are ready and they were always there within 5 minutes. Rorys bar on the beach was great for a drink at sunset – Highly recommended!
This resort was exactly what we needed after a hectic few days in Saigon. It was peaceful and relaxing with such a gorgeous setting. We defnitley recommend it to everyone coming to Phu Quoc.
