If you are looking for somewhere relaxed and quiet, Chen La Resort & Spa is the place for you.
At Chen La Resort & Spa you lack for nothing, from the water sports area on the lovely stretch of beach to the most amazing Thai or Vietnamese massage in the beautiful spa rooms.
Located on a tranquil bay on the island of Phu Quoc, which is known as Vietnam’s peaceful tropical paradise, Chen La Resort & Spa is definitely an oasis of luxury on a still relatively undeveloped island.
Opened in 2008, Chen La is the realisation of a dream to create a resort that blends into the bay and the natural coastal habitat, ensuring minimal impact on the surrounding environment and ecology. The architecture of the resort is inspired by the local environment, including 24 ocean view bungalows and 12 villas equipped with international in-room amenities that ensure maximum comfort for guests.
All rooms are decorated simply and elegantly in an oriental style and equipped with modern amenities such as LCD television, DVD player, a mini bar and others found in four-star hotels and resorts.
If you want to go the whole eco-route and turn off the TV and air conditioner you can. Many resorts in Phu Quoc are without these but advertise it as a selling point, while the choice is yours at Chen La. There is also free wireless internet in all villas.
Indoor/outdoor showers and very nice veranda with sunken bath tubs and sun beds makes for a difficult choice of whether to laze on the veranda and enjoy the sea view, take a few steps down to the beach, or head to the large infinity pool overlooking the ocean.
Chen La’s sea-front restaurant, Il Ristorante, specialises in Mediterranean cuisine but also serves superb international and local dishes. Chen La’s reputation as a culinary destination is spreading fast and Il Ristorante now attracts many visitors staying elsewhere on Phu Quoc. “The food is good and there is a large variety on the menu; you could easily eat there every night,” a guest from Vancouver, Canada commented.
The spa at Chen La is built around a traditional Vietnamese house from the imperial city of Hue and provides a harmonious combination of modern concepts and local culture. Guests can enjoy a massage in the luxurious ambience of the resort’s spa, experiencing its charming and ancient atmosphere or on Chen La beach itself, where the sea will also relax your senses.
The spa offers a mix of traditional and modern treatment, performed by a team of highly skilled and trained staff. They offer traditional Vietnamese body massage, Thai Traditional Body Massage, Relaxing Body Massage, Hot Stone Therapy Massage, Reflexology, and Herbal Treatment Massage. Special Baths such as Lemongrass Herbal Bath, Sea Salt Crystal Bath and Milk Bath are also available. Guests can also enjoy facial treatments tailored to their individual needs.
Guests can also enjoy a range of activities such as mountain biking, wine tasting, cooking lessons, and private picnics. The resort also offers many different water sports facilities including sailing boats, dinghies, windsurfing, wake-boarding, kayaking, and speedboats.
Chen La Resort & Spa is also the perfect venue to host corporate meetings, conferences and workshops. The resort’s two meeting rooms can accommodate groups ranging from 10 to 100 people, and the superb banquet facilities and outstanding catering services will ensure an unforgettable experience for both planners and attendees.
Chen La’s guests return home relaxed and refreshed and feel they are leaving a piece of paradise behind.
