Chen La Resort is the perfect getaway if you want luxurious and undisturbed bliss in a beautiful beachside location. It's a well laid-out resort, on a slope running to the water's edge.
The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Yes, it you want to go the whole eco-route and turn off the TV and aircon, you can, as many resorts in Phu Quoc seem to be without and advertise it as a selling point, but unlike those, the choice is yours at Chen La. Free wireless internet in all villas too for those internet fixes. Indoor/outdoor shower plus a very nice verandah on all, with sunken bath and day bed. Makes for a difficult choice whether to laze on the verandah and enjoy the seaview, or take a few strides down to the beach, or head to the large infinity pool overlooking the beach.
The beach itself is blocked at both ends by rocks = no hawkers or people trying to sell you anything, perfect. It's a flat sandy beach that is relatively shallow quite some way out with clear water.
The single restaurant is nice, not an expansive menu but the quality is good. Service is friendly ,with a lounge and bar downstairs at the water's edge to drink at later.
This is not the place to go if you want an action packed holiday. Yes, they have some watersports, sailing etc even scuba diving (fortunately no pesky jet-skis !) and there are the ubiquitous boat tours to do. But for me the attraction was lazing by the beach or the pool enjoying the calm.There is no noise from nearby roads, nor airport, nor speedboats going by. I think I heard the odd dog barking maybe.
I'll most certainly be back.
