JW Marriott Emerald Bay
Phu Quoc, Vietnam
The first international luxury hotel brand on Phu Quoc Island, this fantastical resort first opened its doors to the public on 25 January 2017, with the irreverent style of renowned architect Bill Bensley evident throughout. Bensley’s design narrative for the site was a mythical academy of learning, ‘Lamarck University’, inspired by French naturalist Jean Baptiste Lamarck. This backstory is evident throughout the resort giving it a truly harmonious aesthetic; each building is modelled after an academic department, and accommodation comprises of 237 spacious and beautifully appointed rooms, suites, villas and houses, in which whimsical touches blend harmoniously with modern comfort and JW world-class service to make for an exceptional stay.
