Located in the largest Vietnam island on the Gulf of Thailand, 45 minutes by plane from Ho Chi Minh city, this JM Marriott resort designed by award-winning architect Bill Bensley opened its doors in 2017. The hotel concept and design is based on the history of the fictional Lamark University, a story created by Bensley, inspired by the impressions of his first visit to “the wild beauty of tropical paradise, Phu Quoc island”.
Here’s some images and how the property describes the Turquoise suite from their website:
The “legendary” Emerald room has beautiful interior design and harmoniously arranged decorations. As one of the artistic masterpieces created by renowned architect Bill Bensley, this room gives you a truly inspirational space that allows you to enjoy the panoramic view of the sea – the sky – the land. The Turquoise suite is most admirable for its four-poster bed, generously sized walk-in shower, and lengthy terrace furnished with sofa and tables while standalone villas, despite not having sea views, are favored for their private garden and pool.
Here is our video review and commentary on the Ocean View Turquoise Suite:
What a beautiful suite. It is great how they used the floor to give each space its own vibe. I love the contrast between the light turquoise printed tiles in the living room vs the dark hardwood floors in the bedroom.
This hotel is one of Marriott’s hidden gems in term of redemptions. As a Category 5, it can be booked for as low as 24,000 points per night during off-peak season using the 5th night free benefit. Also a good place to try to use those suite night upgrades (if they were useful!).
