Crystal, Emerald and Turquoise Romance packages start from GBP11,150++ for up to 50 guests

15 November 2018 – The first international five-star resort on Vietnam’s idyllic Phu Quoc island, JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay has launched a range of fantasy-filled wedding packages to help couples to create a memorable destination wedding.  Inspired by its design narrative as the University of Lamarck, a mythical academy of learning, JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay is the ultimate luxurious wedding destination for style conscious couples seeking a fantastical aesthetic, offering a breathtaking array of extraordinary, dreamlike locations in which to mark the beginning of their new lives together.


A spellbinding array of unforgettable potential wedding locations can be found across the ‘campus’. Couples dreaming of a romantic beachside wedding can exchange vows to the music of lapping waves and a tropical breeze, while guests enjoy cocktails and sample dishes from live barbecue stations dotted along the white sandy beach. For intimate ceremonies, the elegant surrounds and French colonial-inspired architecture of the Department of Chemistry terrace are complemented by sunset views and live music.  For an open air, beach club vibe, the resort’s spectacular Insta-worthy outdoor pools provide an ideal al fresco setting for celebrations surrounded by calming waters and inspiring vistas of Bai Kem beach. Vietnam’s hidden gem, Phu Quoc is renowned for its pristine white beaches, dreamy turquoise seas, and off-the-beaten-track trails waiting to be discovered. Overlooking the sparkling crystal waters of the Gulf of Thailand and set against vistas of untouched beaches and lush greenery, JW Marriott Phu Quoc provides a picture-perfect backdrop for wedding celebrations. From beachside ceremonies, to grand banquets in academia-themed ballrooms and Alice in Wonderland-inspired spaces, fantasy weddings become a reality at this Bill Bensley-designed resort.

For more formal receptions, the Lamarck Grand Auditorium – a luxurious, high-ceilinged ballroom – is the venue of choice. Spanning an impressive 688 m², the Auditorium can accommodate up to 420 seated guests for an extravagant celebration. Surrounded by vintage atlases and designed to resemble a medieval school hall, this multipurpose venue can be configured for events of any size, from intimate dinner parties to lavish gatherings.

For a memorable banquet dinner or a completely out-of-the-box themed function, couples can host an elaborate feast on the resort’s collegiate-style Lamarck Running Track. Replicating an authentic sports track, complete with manicured lawns and scenic outdoor architecture, the setting provides an unconventional backdrop for couples to exchange vows. Another enchanting venue, Pink Pearl Terrace, promises an intimate setting in an idyllic, secluded tropical garden where everlasting declarations can unfold in front of family and friends.

A series of inspiring new wedding packages have also been launched to help each couple create their own whimsical wedding party in paradise:

The Crystal Romance package (from GBP11,150++) includes a reception and beachside ceremony for up to 50 guests, with pre-dinner cocktails and canapés, dinner menu, three-hour beverage package and three-tier wedding cake. The bride and groom also enjoy a two-night stay in an Emerald Bay Front Room, professional wedding planning services, and complimentary airport transfers.

The Emerald Romance package (from GBP14,910++) offers a distinctive reception and wedding ceremony for up to 50 guests. Brides and grooms retreat to a Turquoise Suite for two nights while their every need is met by a private butler. The couple also receive a complimentary 60-minute spa treatment for two and an exclusive Lamarck University wedding gift.

The Turquoise Romance package (from GBP22,400++)  includes even more opulent options such as a live jazz band during reception and the ceremony, a five-tier wedding cake, bonfire set-up on the beach, and customised chocolates and giveaways for guests. During their stay, the bride and groom can relax in a one-bedroom villa and enjoy a complimentary romantic dinner for two on the beach.

Additional guests can be accommodated subject to an additional fee. To ensure peace of mind and the success of every event, a dedicated Catering and Conference Services Manager is on hand to answer any questions and personalise each celebration.

Direct flights are now available between Phu Quoc and regional gateway cities such as Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok and Guangzhou, making this paradise on earth more accessible than ever to visitors from the UK.
