One of the best things about Bo Resort is that you get what they promise in advance - and then a lot more on top. The three of us stayed in two cabins at Bo the last week in May 13, and we enjoyed every minute. We were picked up in the brand new airport, and welcomed by the owners Marie and Regis, with whom you feel in good company.
Bo is situated by the sea in the Northern part of Phu Quoc, which is more tranquille than the more touristic area around the main town, Duong Dong.
The cabins are situated in a garden that is second to none, an abundance of flowers and trees, very well maintained. We were surprised by the low number of mosquitos - might be something seasonal. One night I even slept on the porch without net.
There are around 20 huts. All are basic, no airconditon but fans, hot water by solar cells, but you really don't need it. No room service, no TV, no fridge, spacy, airy and those on the beach with a view. They are properly cleaned every day.
At Bo you can't do much other than relax, walk along the beach, read, swim and eat. They have a very talented cook, that are able to offer a large menu only based on fresh products bought at the market every morning. The food is a tale of it's own. Try the Vietnamese pancake or the stuffed calamar.
Bo's own beach is kept clean every day, but when you walk north, it is a mess of garbage washed in from the sea.
They can arrange diving and snorkeling tours, which are nice and safe, but don't go to Vietnam for the diving. You'll find much better in e.g. Thailand or Indonesia. Ask Regis for a canoo trip up the river into the nearby jungle. Apparently nobody else does it, and it was a great experience. Came to think of "The Heart of Darkness".
The price level is very reasonable. We even had the nice experience of being charged less than agreed in our booking, because in the meantime Bo had launched a special offer.
The way things work at Bo makes you feel more among friends than as a customer.

Room Tip: If you like the sound of the waves, take one of the seaside cabins. If you prefer complete silence chose the garden.

Can't ask for much more if you're looking for an escape.... beautiful sunsets, a little bar, simple bungalows, great food. Don't expect swimming pools, fancy rooms, wide screen TVs - this place is an Escape from all that. And what really makes the place rock is the incredible owner - Regis. This guy loves his music, a sunset drink, and is a wealth of information about the island, and life in general. Thanks for a wonderful stay and we hope to be back soon!

All right, I am a French guy traveling in Vietnam. I came at Bo Resort in April and it was simply the paradise on earth, the beach it’s idyllic, far away from all the tourists, perfect for relaxing and forget the rest of the world.

I really appreciated the seafood and fishes! Especially the grilled tuna with its chili sauce. Yummy. Nonetheless, like it’s said in the previous reviews, the prices are a little expensive for the food for Vietnam. Anyway you have a plenty of choice of Vietnamese and Western dishes tasty and so good (the pizzas are really good).

I slept in a cozy garden bungalow; everything is well made and arranged, it’s simply but lovely. You just need to wait around 5 minutes for get hot water but who really need hot water when the temperature outside is around 35 degree?

You can easily rent a motorbike for a half or full day and go all around the island. I really recommend going to the north of the island, it took me between 5/6 hours to do the circuit (including all the breaks). The landscape is amazing, you are driving on the edge of the beach and then into the forest and mountain. Just be aware of the road and the other drivers. Don’t drive too fast, take your time and enjoy this beautiful moment of your life!

The service at Bo Resort is pretty good, not all the staff speaks well English but they are all very helpful and friendly. When you ask for something at the reception they answer you the best as they can and they take time to listen your request. Similarly with the waiters, who are
very reactive and autonomous.

Marie and Regis, the owners of this place are also French and very nice persons. Even if this place was build 10 years ago, they still welcome warmly the guests and discuses with them and give you precious advice about the island and things to do and see on the mainland.

What else? Oh yes! I want to come back there! I really recommend this place for people that are looking for authenticity, calm, beautiful beaches, amazing landscape, nature and of course sun!

Hello Nicolas,
Thank you very much! I like those reviews: easy to answer :)

I remember you. Your comments are interesting also because you are from Vietnamese origin, coming back on vacation to your native country. So you can appreciate both the Western and the Vietnamese culture.

It’s funny that you mentioned our pizzas! If people want to have a good pretext to have one, here in Vietnam and on the seashore, they can choose the “Tuna Pizza”, or the “Seafood Pizza”. That’s what I do :)It will be harder to explain why you would choose the “Salami Pizza”! But the kids love it and they don’t need any pretext…
Seafood pasta is also yummy, because of the fresh seafood with “al dente” spaghetti.
Little joke here: “I’m on a seafood diet: when I see food, I eat!”

Well, thank you again.
Regis

After much trepidation following some recent reviews we stayed at Bo for 4 days and really enjoyed it ! There's a couple of drawbacks, but overall I'd not hesitate to reccomend to anyone that is looking for good clean accommodation, well away from the crowds besides a beautiful sea!

Plus points - as above, good clean accommodation, well away from the crowds and besides a beautiful sea, and additionally excellent and tasty lunch and dinner (with good size portions), Regis - the very helpful and pleasant owner, always happy to assist or to generally chat. and best of all, the amazing staff who may be a bit young and inexperienced, but who try their absolute best to do whatever they can to help you whenever they can !

Negatives - not really a negative, but you should be aware that rooms are not hermetically sealed (and not advertised as such) so you may get some bugs and lizards in the room - not a problem to us at all, but if you are a "Im really scared of spiders and insects" type person then Bo is not for you (but in fact why would you be going to tropical environment anyway?!). and the other negative would be breakfast which is (IMO) overly restictive with just 4 choices and no "mix and match" opportunity or second helpings.

Overall, a wonderful place to sit back and relax, but dont expect 5 star amenities! (or a second helping of Breakfast!)

and Regis - my wife was correct about the bus trip to Cambodia - it's 4 different buses between Ha Tien ferry port and Phnom Penh! - all went smoothly though and thanks for your help arranging this !

David

Room Tip: Rooms nearer the beach have more breeze so are cooler in the hot months

Hello Dave,
Thank you for your constructive comments.
You responded yourself to the less positive ones, so I have nothing much to add, except that we don’t have that many spiders here and they are not dangerous. You are right, it is a tropical country and, as such, in Vietnam we have a kind of lizard called Gecko but it is too busy eating the flies and mosquitoes (apparently very tasty food :) to really pay attention to us. About the breakfast, we are now adding an item to every type of breakfast, so our guests will feel more satisfied.
Yes, it is true, we don’t have the typical 5 stars amenities, but at BO you have space (at least 10 meters between the bungalows), only 18 units on 2.5 hectares and this amazing 4-km deserted bay. How many stars is this worth?
Regarding your “quirky” comment, English is not my mother language, so I had to google it: “Quirky: having or characterized by peculiar or unexpected traits or aspects”. I would say BO is maybe unexpectedly close to Nature. People who don’t appreciate Nature, or are not romantic at all, should not come to BO Resort (as it is all explained on our website).This is not your case, Dave, as you and your family have liked our place.Your lovely daughters said they like my responses, so I say hello :)

Thank you very much again.
Regis
PS: I am pleased to read that your trip to Cambodia went well, even if it was longer than planned.

Surprisingly...The paradise for the beach and nature lover is available on earth at Phu Quoc - The largest island in Vietnam, It set along with the charming landscape and structure, I was stay beach front bangalow where is face to the beach with the hill at the behind, This is a place for every people who want "Truely relaxing" and who want to be away from everything, The restaurant and beach bar are simply set up but look good, attractive and colorful with handmade lanterns and sweetly pink table top..that's much more than enough to have your greatest dining experiences and do not miss to try "Calamary stuffed with minced pork in coconut milk" and "Stir fried cubed beef with onion and black pepper" (Bo Luc Lac) with a bottle of "Two Ocean"...more than expected
