Taking over the footprint of a former French university, this JW Marriott outpost is one of the more unique resort hotels in Phu Quoc Island. The hotel’s communal areas and outlets take their cues from art deco-era France, a design theme that also influences the spacious, comfortable rooms and suites. And best of all, the resort has a large slice of Khem Beach, on the beautiful southeastern coast of the island.

8. Fusion Resort Phu Quoc
