Weddings & honeymoons

With all its natural beauty Phu Quoc is the perfect place for a honeymoon, but it is also popular for weddings and anniversaries. Most of the high level resorts advertise wedding and anniversary packages, and offer private stretches of beach along with luxury service and trappings. The Saigon Phu Quoc Resort, for example, runs a wedding/honeymoon program called "Wedding Memories" (3 nights, cost US$1714 per couple). It includes a traditional Vietnamese wedding ceremony plus a boat cruise around Phu Quoc.

If you are already married, you can celebrate your anniversary at the resort. The centerpiece is a romantic dinner in a pavilion next to a heart-shape formed by candles planted in the sand. The resort's banquet room, meanwhile, can accommodate 220 wedding guests at 20 tables. You can celebrate your wedding in either the Vietnamese or Christian/Western way at La Veranda Resort. At Long Beach's Ancient Village and Spa have a sunset wedding on a stretch of private beach which can accommodate 300 guests. For something a little cheaper, try Thanh Quoc Resort on Ba Keo Mountain, a 2-star hotel. It might be on the opposite end of the scale from the Ancient Village and Spa, but its restaurant can accommodate the same capacity of guests.
