Salinda Premium Resort and Spa

Phu Quoc Island is Vietnam’s prime travel destination with it’s beautiful beaches, lush national parks and friendly islanders. Salinda Resort adds an unforgettable five star luxury experience to the natural charm of Phu Quoc.

One thing that I still treasure in my mind are the the welcoming smiles and the efficient, unbureaucratic check-in process at Salinda Resort on Phu Quoc Island. You just sit down with a glass of refreshing iced tea, have a chat with the Guest Relations Manager and receive a short introduction of the five-star resorts facilities. By the time you finish your drink, the luggage is on a cart and a beautiful room is waiting for you.

The second greatest impression were the thoughtfully arranged details that bind Salinda Resort together into one  relaxing experience. Modern style is carefully interwoven with traditional Asian elements. Art by a Vietnamese impressionist, natural materials like mother-of-pearl and coconut, Accoya wood and cooling volcanic rock, together with over a hundred plant species add to the flair of Salinda.

One of the examples of Salinda’s high standards was the welcoming fruit basket at the room. It contained five different fruit for diversity, but the mango and the bananas were in season, so they were hand-picked at the luxury resort’s own garden.

Rooms & Amenities

There are 121 different accommodations at this Phu Quoc luxury beach resort. The elegantly designed deluxe rooms are available in the variants hill, garden or sea view.

The garden and sea view villas are the ideal location for a honeymoon or otherwise romantic getaway, and the spacious deluxe suites are not only the crown of comfort and luxury, the contemporary design also gives credit to Asia’s pearl island, Phu Quoc.

The rooms are quiet and spacious. The villa has a big bathroom, a rain shower and a standalone bathtub. The picture above shows the bathroom of the Suite Sea View Villa. Every room type has it’s own style.

The room itself comes with a smart TV set that gives an overview over the resort and Phu Quoc Island. There is a desk and a cozy lounge area as well.

The use of sound-proof quality window glass from Germany ensures a rejuvenating night’s sleep. The beds are wide and comfortable, I rarely slept on such a snug mattress when traveling. If the beds are too soft for your taste, the staff puts a plank underneath.

More information about the rooms and service can be gathered at our rather informal blog post about Salinda, the five star luxury resort on Phu Quoc Island.

Service

The atmosphere at Salinda has a pleasant influence on the staff. Besides being prompt, attentive and polite, the staff members were also naturally friendly.

From the receptionist to the butlers, the restaurant staff to the beach guard, people speak very good English and not one time I had to ask a staff member to repeat a sentence.

Dining

The wine selection of the luxury resort is the largest on Phu Quoc Island and rivals the big wine cellars of Vietnam with over 1200 bottles in store.

The best picks of Vietnamese, Italian and Indian cuisine are carefully prepared by native chefs.

While indulging in your dinner, you could almost forget the tasteful music of the live band in the garden between the restaurant and the pool. If you don’t want to sit in the artfully designed restaurant or outside, then in-room dining is an available option.

For more information on the restaurant, you can check out the review of Salinda restaurant in our separate blog post.

Facilities

In terms of facilities, Salinda Resort has almost everything. Let’s start with the pool.

Pool

Like the rest of the luxury resort, the pool is planned as part of a relaxing, healthy experience. The water treatment is state-of-the-art salt technology that brings chlorine levels down to a minimum. The pool bar is tastefully designed and blends into the overall pleasant view.

Spa

The extraordinary spa and the atmosphere of Salinda Resort go hand in hand as one great experience of rejuvenation and relaxation. Managed by Guru Spa, Salinda Spa offers treatments in a natural and detailed atmosphere of Thai hospitality.

The signature treatment of Salinda Spa is a traditional Thai experience that dates back thousands of years and incorporates Thai massage and fragrant, warm herbal compresses.

Lounge

The lobby lounge is spacious and the lighting is carefully designed like everywhere in the Salinda resort. The professional bartender impresses with one of the lounge’s signature cocktails: Sweet Temptation, Heaven and Moonlight, or Morning Mist. Just pick one of the 50 seats and listen to the live music or have a chat with your friends.

If you enjoy a good cigar, there is a selection of them at the separate cigar lounge.

The lobby lounge is open from 5 p.m. to midnight.

Ballroom

The grand ballroom of Salinda Resort can seat up to 270 guests and features state of the art audiovisual equipment. Movable walls allow a great flexibility to customize the area size and make your event truly memorable.

Boutique

The Salinda Boutique is far more than your average souvenir shop. If you like the beautiful, hand-crafted tea set at your villa, you can buy it here. The shop offers products from the Mekong Quilts, an NPO that supports women on the countryside, unique art and lacquerware, cute plushies of the Phu Quoc Ridgeback and many other Vietnamese handicraft items of highest quality.

Like the overall concept of Salinda Resort and Spa, the boutique shop pays attention to locality and sustainability.

What People Say

From the current 219 reviews on TripAdvisor, 179 are rating Salinda Luxury Resort and Spa as “Excellent” and 30 people as “Very Good”.

Guests primarily compliment the sleep quality, detailed design, pool area and especially the friendly staff members who go out of their way to make them comfortable.

Many reviewers point out that they want and will return to Salinda if they can. Visitors recommend getting a sea view room or villa to enjoy the beautiful sunsets of Long Beach.

The only consistent negative opinion is the pollution of the ocean. Even if Salinda staff patrols the beach to pick up every piece of trash, the ocean brings more, because during the rainy season the wind blows landwards and the trash of the Gulf of Thailand gets washed ashore. The water at the other side of Phu Quoc Island, particularly at Sao Beach and Khem Beach is cleaner during that time of the year.
