Holiday with Kids - - Promotion -

As the largest is­land within the UN­ESCO Kien Giang Bio­sphere Re­serve, Phu Quoc is a trop­i­cal des­ti­na­tion that is as unique as it is beau­ti­ful. At least 50 per cent of the is­land is cov­ered by Na­tional Park, and it is home to world-fa­mous pearl farms, thriv­ing ma­rine life and rich coral reefs. Sur­rounded by turquoise sea, Phu Quoc is a mem­o­rable set­ting for a fam­ily hol­i­day.

In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Phu Quoc Long Beach Re­sort sits on the tail end of Long Beach, a 10-minute drive from the in­ter­na­tional air­port and 20 min­utes from the is­land’s main town of Duong Dong. Fam­ily mem­bers from four to 12 years will be en­thralled by the 250-squareme­tre Planet Trekkers Kids’ Club. Par­ents can be as­sured that their young ad­ven­tur­ers will be fully su­per­vised while hav­ing an un­for­get­table time form­ing new friend­ships and hav­ing fun with cul­tur­ally in­clined in­door and out­door ac­tiv­i­ties. There’ll also be op­por­tu­ni­ties for kids to dress up and take to the stage in the re­sort’s au­di­to­rium for their big­gest fans: their par­ents. Wa­ter ba­bies will be at home in the Splash! fam­ily pool, swoosh­ing down the wa­ter slide, feed­ing the koi fish and hunt­ing for gnomes in the herb gar­den.

The re­sort also pro­vides a ded­i­cated kids’ din­ing area that dou­bles as a ‘Kids Can Cook’ cook­ing school. Bud­ding gour­mands can not only learn and prac­tise pre­par­ing their favourite treats but also gain knowl­edge of lo­cal in­gre­di­ents, all un­der the guid­ance of the In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal chefs. When kids need time out, The Hideout games room is com­plete with com­put­ers, gam­ing con­soles, a read­ing cor­ner and an ex­ten­sive li­brary of DVDS and board games. For par­ents wish­ing to have a ro­man­tic night out, in-room babysit­ting and nan­nies are avail­able for a fee.

Among its 459 el­e­gant ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions, In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Phu Quoc Long Beach Re­sort fea­tures 115 one-, two- and three-bed­room suites with kitchens that are ideal for fam­i­lies of all sizes.

When it comes to din­ing with kids, In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Phu Quoc Long Beach Re­sort has space and menus for ev­ery­one. Kids will love the pas­tries and sand­wiches of Mer­cado café, as well as the de­li­cious pic­nic bas­kets avail­able for fam­ily ex­cur­sions. The Sea Shack on the beach­front will de­light chil­dren with its tapas-style bar­be­cue and grill dishes, while Om­bra by the pool serves tra­di­tional pizza, pasta and gelato to tempt all ages.
