WHIM­SI­CAL WON­DER­LAND

HerWorld Brides LUXE (Singapore) - - Editor’s Picks -

Lo­cated on the pris­tine beach of Phu Quoc, JW Mar­riott Phu Quoc Emer­ald Bay Ho­tel & Spa is a hid­den gem on Viet­nam’s south coast, f lanked by crys­tal-clear wa­ters. Win­ner of the Lux­ury De­sign Ho­tel ti­tle in the World Lux­ury Ho­tel Awards for 2017, this whim­si­cal play­ground is the brain­child of ac­claimed ar­chi­tect Bill Bens­ley.

The re­sort’s theme was in­spired by noted French nat­u­ral­ist Jean-Bap­tiste La­marck and the fan­ci­ful idea that he set up a univer­sity here in the 1890s. You’ll also find plenty of vin­tage para­pher­na­lia and fur­ni­ture, sourced from

across Europe, and the re­sort’s wings are named af­ter var­i­ous aca­demic de­part­ments – from bi­ol­ogy, zo­ol­ogy, ar­chi­tec­ture and the fine arts. The 234 rooms and suites are fur­nished in a mix of Euro­pean and Asian el­e­ments,

like this Turquoise Room fea­tur­ing Viet­namese lan­tern-shaped fix­tures and a four-poster bed.
