The Lux Collective to open overwater resort in Vietnam

The LUXNAM* Phu Quoc resort is set to open in 2024

The Lux Collective has signed a hotel management agreement with PQ Hai Quoc Joint Stock Company to build a luxury overwater resort under the LUX* Resorts & Hotels brand on the island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam. 

A Maldivian-style resort, LUXNAM* Phu Quoc will sit above the shallow waters and coral reefs alongside the Kien Giang Biosphere Reserve, located on the edge of a jungle-draped island off the coast of Vietnam. The dragon-shaped resort will have two areas connected by a 4km long jetty over the lagoon.

The 126-key resort will comprise 109 overwater villas (most with private pools), 13 beach pool villas, two penthouses and two beachfront pool mansions. Onsite facilities will include restaurants, a spa, a fitness centre, four swimming pools and a children's playground.

Commenting on the news, The Lux Collective chief executive officer Paul Jones said: "We are honoured to partner with the PQ Hai Quoc Joint Stock Company to manage this new-built overwater resort located on the remote Northern coast of Phu Quoc, which is adjacent to a UNESCO-listed Biosphere Reserve spanning over 314,000 square metres of unique flora and fauna, evergreen forest and dense mountain range. Inspired by the iconic Maldivian-style overwater resorts, this is a first for Vietnam and the region."
