While the hotel’s service excellence draws from Mövenpick’s Swiss heritage, the heart-felt hospitality delivered by its staff is a clear reflection of the warm and friendly nature of the local Vietnamese culture.
Designed with a tropical style, Mövenpick Resort Waverly Phu Quoc harmoniously blends modern and traditional touches with plenty of natural light streamed through full-sized windows. The contemporary guestrooms feature an elegant interior in soothing neutral tones.

Rooms range from a spacious 35 square metres to an expansive 72 square metres for a Junior Suite. Modern in-room comforts include complimentary high-speed WiFi, a pillow menu, and a fully-stocked minibar.
For both long-term stays and weekend getaways, Mövenpick Residences Phu Quoc features studios and family rooms, each equipped with a kitchenette. The resort complex also features 66 two-bedroom and three-bedroom pool villas nestled around the lake, while the 12 three-bedroom pool villas and the Presidential Villa offer beachfront views where guests can enjoy the evening sunset.
Mövenpick’s rich culinary legacy is evident in the extraordinary dining experiences available in the hotel’s restaurants and bars, including a beach club perched on the golden sands of Ong Lang Beach. Open for both guests and visitors, Aura Beach Club features a sunken pool bar, a delectable Asian Tapas menu, creative mixology, daily sunset ritual and exciting entertainment. Other culinary delights at the hotel include international cuisine and alive cooking station at The Islander Restaurant; Vietnamese favourites and seafood at Lang Chai; local craft beer at Lang Chai Bar; and Vietnamese tea, coffee & chocolate hour at Waverly Lounge.

The resort offers six swimming pools, including two kids’ pools. Other wellness facilities include the Elements Fitness Center which features state-of-the-art equipment and a yoga studio.

The ballroom can also be divided into four meeting rooms for smaller group meetings.
The wonderful tropical climate lends itself to inspired exploration of the island’s lush natural landscape. Guests can trek through a dense rainforest that leads to a waterfall or bask in the serenity of coconut-shaded beaches. A delicious food tour through the night market, or visits to the pepper farm, pearl farm or fish sauce factory offer glimpses into the local Vietnamese way of life.
