Answers to common questions
When it is the best time to visit Phu Quoc?
Phu Quoc Island has a sub-equatorial climate that varies through the year. The dry season runs from November to April with an average temperature of 30 degrees Celsius (84 F) with blue sky and quiet sea and lower humidity which make it great time to visit. Between the dry and rainy season, you can still enjoy the island and explore the surroundings as most days are sunny, very hot and humid. Expect April and May are the hottest months and the most humid. The monsoon season runs during the months of June to October. During this period, pack a rain jacket, umbrella, mosquito repellent and…a good book! Please feel free to check the weather forecast : Click here! During the monsoon season the water activities are not available for our guests. If you are planning to come on monsoon season, you can still enjoy our infinity swimming pool, cooking class, spa treatment or if you are in need of adventure you can still ride a mountain bike.
Do I need a Tourist Visa to visit Phu Quoc?
Phu Quoc is currently marked under Special Economic Zone, all nationalities traveling directly to Phu Quoc can visit the island for up to 30 days visa-free.
However, if you plan to visit other parts of Vietnam after your stay in phu Quoc, then you will require a Vietnamese Visa.
In Order to be eligible for the 30 days visa exemption to Phu Quoc Island, you must meet the following requirements:
Eligible travelers can apply for the eVOA (eVisa on Arrival) before departure to Vietnam by submitting their applications through VFS Global website
What about health in Vietnam?
Travelers tend to be anxious about contracting infectious diseases in Vietnam but serious illness are rare. Accidental injury (especially traffic accidents) account for most life-threatening problems. That said, about of sickness is relatively common. Here is a list of medication we recommend you to pack before your departure. If you have any health conditions pack your medications in clearly labelled containers accompanied with a letter from your doctor.
Avoid eating street food and always drink sealed bottle of water. If you follow some common sense you should be OK. The first hospital with international standard opened in June 2016 and it is located in the north of the island 20 minutes away from Chen Sea Resort & Spa.
Getting to Phu Quoc from Cambodia
Looking at a map of the area that used to be called Indochina, Phu Quoc appears more of a Cambodian than a Vietnamese island. Rumors of an agreement between the two countries to allow a ferry service from the resort town of Kampot have been heard for a decade but nothing concrete has happened so far. How to get to Phu Quoc from Cambodia is what this post is about.
Assuming you will start your journey in Phnom Penh, there are two ways to reach the border crossing at Ha Tien: directly, with a straight bus journey, or step by step, visiting other nice cities along the coast and then, on the last leg, crossing into Vietnam from the town in Kampot.
There are several bus companies to choose from. They are all more or less the same in terms of standards and fares differ very little. It is better to buy tickets at their offices (all located near Psah Thmay) rather than in small travel agencies, as you may end up waiting for all passengers to be collected from various parts of the city, which generates long delays and it is not such a very good way to start.
Another alternative is to use one of the ubiquitous minivans that depart when full and, in theory, travel faster than coaches. Though, keep in mind that legroom is minimal and reclining seats are not so reclining. Please be warned: air conditioning is great, when it works. If it breaks down, as it sometimes happens with buses and minivans, you are going to travel in a 4-wheels sauna. So if you opt for the minivan, check if windows can be opened.
The third option is the shared taxi. Many years ago, when Cambodia’s infrastructure was battered by years of war, this was the only option, in the form of white Toyota Coronas from the 80’s. Nowadays taxis are mostly Lexus 4×4 and Toyota Camry and instead of sharing the journey with as many as five peasants and their livestock, now you travel comfortably with only two or three upper-class Cambodians, or other tourists. Alternatively you can pay a forfeited fee and have it all for yourself.
A final tip if you want to do something that very few people have done so far: as the dilapidated railway network has been partially repaired, there are now regular trains to Kampot on weekends. Inquire at the railway station in Phnom Penh.
Once in Kampot, you can do the trip on a do-it-yourself basis, organizing every step, or just book a minivan from a travel agency in Kampot. Once you reach the border, the pier for the ferry to Phu Quoc is about 7 Km away. Therefore, by leaving Kampot in the morning you will be at your hotel in Phu Quoc in the early afternoon. If you purchase a transfer from a tour operator the ferry ticket is included and they will make sure you won’t miss its departure. If you do it alone, you will have to take a tuk tuk, taxi or motodop to the border, which is about 1 hour away.
Visitors from many Western countries are granted a 15 days free visa on arrival, so if you plan to stay longer in Vietnam you should apply for a VOA (visa on arrival) or, even better, get one from the Embassy of Vietnam in Phnom Penh.
After crossing into Vietnam, again you have a choice of tuk tuk, taxis and motorbike taxis eagerly awaiting to take you to the jetty or to the right bus station for your onward travels to Ho Chi Minh City and other nearby provinces. At this junction, strong negotiation skills are essential.
The company running the ferry is called Superdong (don’t laugh) and has a website with a timetable. Departures from Ha Tien are at 0515, 0730, 0800, 1230 and 1315.
The ferry is strongly air-conditioned i.e. it’s terribly cold inside. The journey takes one and a half hour with calm sea. There is entertainment on board in the form of karaoke (probably the saddest songs on Earth), Hong Kong action movies and Vietnamese-dubbed Hollywood blockbusters. But all this is irrelevant as the noise from the engines obliterates everything. Smokers can enjoy a space outside at the stern of the boat. The cruise ends at Bai Vong ferry terminal on Phu Quoc’s east coast.
The Pearl of Vietnam welcomes its visitors with a lively, agitated crowd of touts elbowing and pushing each other to attract your attention. These are the owners and of motorbikes, taxis, tuk tuks and minibuses, ready to take you wherever you want to go. Welcome to Phu Quoc!
Getting to Phu Quoc and away
Getting to Phu Quoc is nowadays fast, straightforward and easy. There is a solution for all types of visitors, from young backpackers with plenty of time and low budget to affluent corporate types, with plenty of credit cards but often only a weekend to squeeze between busy working weeks.
Considering time, rather than budget, as the main factor to reach Phu Quoc, let’s explore what is available in terms of flights, starting obviously from Vietnam and neighboring countries.
Flights from Vietnam
There are direct flight from Hanoi, HCMC, Haiphong, Dalat and Can Tho, with different schedules throughout the day, operated by Jetstar, Vietjet and Vietnam Airlines. In total, about 15 flights land daily at Phu Quoc Airport, quite many for a small island. And these are the domestic flights only. What about the international ones?
Flights from Asia
Bangkok Airways, the self-proclaimed “boutique airline”, is at the moment the only operator offering an (expensive) Bangkok-Phu Quoc direct flight. Looking at how fast things are rolling for Phu Quoc, it’s only a matter of time before low-cost companies like Thai Smile and Air Asia will jump on this lucrative route.
And what about the Chinese, the Koreans and Japanese tourists? After having flooded virtually every destination with something to see in S.E. Asia, they are heading to Phu Quoc too, en masse, with direct flights from Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Kunming, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Seoul. Hopefully there will be enough space on Phu Quoc beaches for all of us…
Flights from Europe
The Europeans have noticed Phu Quoc too: the dream-like image of a palm-fringed, white sandy beach lapped by a sea the color of jade is on every brochure offering a week in paradise. To break a cold, miserable long winter nothing works better than a short holiday. After the Scandinavians, the Russians and the British, also the Italians have managed to organize a weekly chartered flight directly from Milan, starting on December 19, 2017. The forthcoming high season is going to be the busiest ever.
The fulcrum of all this activity, handling an estimated 7 million travelers per year, is obviously Phu Quoc Airport, inaugurated in 2012. With a runway of 3000 m, it can now accept the largest planes, like the Boeing 747s, and absorb a volume of air traffic that can only grow.
Perhaps not everybody knows that this is actually the second airport on the island. The first one, called Duong Dong, was built by the French in the 30s and became strategically important during the war. It was developed as an air force facility and after the fall of Saigon in 1975 it returned to its original purpose of serving commercial flights. It was further developed in 1995, when a new terminal was built, and it was operational until it closed down in 2012. The runway where Vietnamese Air Force fighter planes once landed and took off is now a large road where locals sometimes use as a short cut leading to the town center of Duong Dong.
6 Things to do in Phu Quoc
Phu Quoc Island used to be a remote, lesser known destination only 10 years ago. Now it is heading at full speed towards a touristic and economic boom. It’s time to see what it has to offer before it’s too late, or too expensive. Here you have the absolute must-see and must-do activities for the little paradise known as Phu Quoc Island.
Swim at all Phu Quoc beaches
Phu Quoc is quite a large island and beaches are scattered everywhere. From the most famous ones, often in front of luxurious resorts and hotels, to small coves reachable only by motorbike or by boat, there are plenty of places to explore. Tip: if you wish to have the beach for yourself, head to Ong Lang Beach, Bai Gan Dau, Bai Sao, Cay Sao
Experience local Life at Ham Ninh Village
Ham Ninh Village is the stereotype of the unspoiled Asian fishing village. With many houses built on stilts, a wooden rickety pier and dozens of colorful fishing boats, the place is an Instagram-lover wet dream, especially at sunset and/or at low tide, where the landscape changes dramatically. Even though nowadays fishermen are shifting to the more lucrative tourism sector, there is still plenty of fresh seafood at the village restaurants. Tip: try the local crabs and the sea cucumber soup.
Pray at local temples
Thanks to its unique history, Vietnam has a greater variety of places of worship than any other Asian country. Buddhist temples, Taoist pagodas, Catholic churches abound all over the country. And there is also a home-made religion known as Cao Dai. Phu Quoc temples covers them all. The Din Cau Taoist shrine is an oddly-shaped rock where fisherman pray to before going out at sea, devoted to Thien Hau, the Goddess of the Sea. The Ho Cuoc pagoda is an impressive complex by the sea, a great spot to watch spectacular sunrises. The Cao Dai temple is perhaps the most unique religious site on Phu Quoc Island. Founded in 1919, Cao Daism is a monotheistic religion which combines Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Christianity, and Islam. And Phu Quoc is where it was created. The temple is a multicolored affair you must not miss.
Shop like a local at the fresh markets
Markets in Asia are often nothing more than tourist traps, where locals don’t buy anything anymore but rather sell junky souvenirs to tourists. But Phu Quoc markets haven’t fallen into that category – yet. The Dinh Cau Night Market and Duong Dong Market still retain the flavor of a real local experience, with busy, wet, dirty and hopelessly messy alleys where buyers and sellers bargain hard and noisily. Seafood, household items, veggies, fruits, meat, semi-processed foods: perhaps there isn’t a lot to buy for a tourist, but these Phu Quoc markets are great for people watching.
Run away to An Thoi Islands
If you need a true Robinson Crusoe experience, or want to show off the ultimate tropical paradise, leave Phu Quoc and head to the An Thoi Islands. Located off the southern end of Phu Quoc, these 15 tiny islands are uninhabited, pristine, and simply gorgeous. Very similar to those Maldivian empty atolls, they are too stunning to be described. You can rent your own boat to be truly alone, or go with a tour.
Splash around at Suoi Tranh Waterfall
If you have had an indigestion of stunning beaches, or if you can’t stand the fierce tropical sun and salty seas, do something alternative and refresh yourself in a waterfall shaded by old trees. Suoi Tranh is Phu Quoc waterfall and it’s definitely a place to enjoy. Although not very high or spectacular, it is located in a quiet, lovely spot surrounded by lush rainforest, with really few people around. Find your rock pool and listen to the sounds of nature. Then, if you love to hike, you can look for the Hang Doi Cave, a few kilometers after the waterfall.
Best snorkeling spots in Phu Quoc
Phu Quoc’s warm, shallow and calm waters are just perfect for snorkeling. The best time is during the winter season, from November to March, where visibility is at its best and there are no rains, rough seas and strong winds. Even though almost every beach invites snorkeling, it doesn’t necessarily have an awesome lot to see underwater. The most visited locations, as they are the easiest to reach, are all located in the north-western corner of the island. But the truly amazing ones are in the deep southern part, in the tiny archipelago of An Thoi. Here are some of our recommendations, choice is yours…
You can book your snorkeling day trip with Flipper Diving.
One of the largest islands on the western side of Phu Quoc, Turtle Island is the most famous snorkeling site of all. Majority of underwater life is found at the depth of less than 7 meters, making it an ideal place for snorkelers and beginner divers. These shallow waters host hundreds of multicolored soft corals, anemones and tropical fish, an amazing underwater paradise that will impress even well-traveled snorkelers. There is plenty of sand and shade to relax in between underwater explorations.
Also known as Hon Mong Tay, this small island is located at the southern end of Vung Bau beach and can be reached by kayak from the beach. As it’s not far, one may be tempted to swim, but due to a strong underwater current swimming is not recommended. The islet is surrounded by a shallow reef, rich in marine life. At a depth of 5 meters the sandy bottom meets large underwater boulders and rock formations, which are the habitat of big puffer fish, octopuses, shrimps, crabs and parrot. This is a good spot for spearfishing.
This is one of Phu Quoc’s unique attractions, a diving and snorkeling site that you can’t often see. In these warm and shallow waters nudibranchs have found their perfect habitat and the variety of species is enormous. But what are they? Also called sea slugs, these soft-bodied molluscs display an amazing mix of stripes and spots, all in bright, neon-like colors and come in all sorts of shapes and size, up to 6 cm. As these are among the most colorful creatures on Earth, we recommend you don’t miss this experience. If you plan to invest in an underwater digital camera, this is where you should start using it.
Located in front of Bai Thom beach, the little Mot islet is a snorkeling spot that can be reached by walking at low tide on a rocky natural bridge connecting it to Phu Quoc. Sea urchins and sharp rocks can be an unpleasant way to end your excursion, so proceed slowly, watch where you put your feet and don’t go barefooted. Hard corals, anemones and plenty of reef fish are the residents of these shallow waters.
An Thoi Archipelago
This tiny archipelago in the southern part is made of 15 islands and islets, they are where the most stunning beaches are hidden. Established as a marine park and protected by UNESCO, it is visited by various boat tours offering snorkeling as part of their packages. As they generally stop at one island only, to reach the most beautiful spots, you are recommended to rent your own boat and perhaps stay or camp overnight on a couple of tiny islands that offer very basic accommodation and food.
The most visited island here is Hon Mong Tay, not to be confused with the homonymous one in the north of Phu Quoc. Note that most visited here means a couple of boats from the tours per day, on one or two designated beaches. The beaches here are of the kind that people define tropical paradises, with the turquoise sea lapping at the white sand with a bunch of coconut palms in the background and nothing else. Most importantly, you will enjoy the rare feeling of being a castaway on an uninhabited island, having the beach all for yourself. As nature here is not disturbed and water is very calm, it is truly a perfect picturesque spot you wouldn’t want to miss. Snorkeling is not only easy but also rewarding even at shallow depths.
Heading even further South, Hon Xuong offers small coves devoid of any trace of civilization, truly a place where the footprints you will see on the white powdery sand are your own. It may be difficult to beat the Garden-of-Eden beauty of this shores, but nearby Hon Gam Ghi offers an even better reef to explore.
Phu Quoc Beaches
Phu Quoc Beaches are the main, perhaps it is the only reason people visit the island. In direct competition with nearby destination, the islands in Thailand, which have been on tourist brochures for decades, Phu Quoc beaches are not well known much just yet! This is a list of almost all of Phu Quoc beaches, from the largest to the small size so to call “the hidden gems”. Why almost? Because there is always something new to discover and now, how to do that or try to get there is where your journey begins.
ONG LANG BEACH
A string of small beaches rather than one long one, Ong Lang may not have that postcard-perfect look you may expect, whose ingredients are a crystal clear calm water lapping an ultra-white powdery sand. On the other hand, the sand is thick and yellowish, peppered with clusters of black rocks and the occasional mangrove tree. There are more humble casuarina trees than photogenic coconut palms. On top of that, you may have the occasional cow staring at you with mild interest. Perhaps Ong Lang is a “less gentle” kind of beach, but it has its own rustic charm, even though it’s backed by a dozen resorts. Go to Ong Lang beach to look for a piece of sand under a tree, all for yourself.
This beach is a long stretch of powdery, cream-colored sand, backed by a stretch of grass under old trees and newly planted palms. Beside this, you’ll find almost everything you can think of, all in one place. A large hotel including a casino, a shopping street, an amusement park, a zoo and even a ferry wheel, all under the name Vinpearl, synonymous with large Chinese group tours and family-oriented fun. Go to Dai beach if you, or your wife and kids, miss hotel buffets, shopping malls and entertainment.
VUNG BAU BEACH
Unlike Dai, Vung Bau hasn’t been developed yet, even though is an inviting long and wide stretch of yellowish sand backed by lush vegetation and old trees. In some parts of this beach you’ll have the feeling you’ve discovered an unspoiled island, probably the same feeling early visitors of Phu Quoc had in the 90’s. Vung Bau has also a small islet in front of it, known as Fingernail Island. This is a good place for snorkeling and fishing. Even though it is within reach for a good swimmer, renting a kayak would be a much better option. Go to Vung Bau beach if you want to be alone.
Post any picture of this postcard-perfect beach on Facebook and Instagram and you’ll be instantly envied by everybody. Beaches like this are normal in the Maldives but not in Vietnam. Ultra-white powdery sand, coconut palms reaching the shoreline and a crystal-clear still water where small fish, starfish and crabs can be spotted. What else can you ask for? This is Phu Quoc most stunning beach. Go there to take pictures of the ultimate, perfect tropical paradise.
Another postcard perfect beach, much larger than Sao and it is also one of Phu Quoc’s beaches with white sand. Khem is very pristine and clean, due to the fact that until 2014 it belonged to an army restricted area. It has been developing slowly with low-impact resorts which contribute to keep it clean. Even though it may be crowded on weekends, it’s too beautiful to be considered over-developed. Another unique feature of Khem is the sea: it has a unique emerald color, not found anywhere else. Go there for good seafood and to socialize at the beach bars.
GANH DAU BEACH
This is a truly beautiful, white sand beach fringed by coconut palms. Naturally sheltered and shaded, with a very calm, shallow water, Ganh Dau is the stereotype of the tropical beach. Developed but not a lot, with empty stretches of sand if you wish to be totally alone, it has also a nice restaurant and discreet, fine bungalows. This is how nature and development should gently blend. Go there to stay.
CAY SAO BEACH
Undeveloped, known only by local fishermen, shaded by coconut palms and empty. Very empty. Cay Sao is one of Phu Quoc’s hidden gems. Hidden until somebody will develop it. Problem is, it’s a bit hard to find. Go there to feel proud, as you have found a place nobody knows about yet. And hurry up.
Truong means “long” in Vietnamese and this is Phu Quoc’s longest beach, extending for 20 km on the western coast of the island. Flanked by coconut palms all along its length, this straight beach is divided in two by the Song Trang river. The northern part is where the major development is to be found, also because it is where the tourism industry originally started. Together with old and new hotels, restaurants, beach resorts, guest houses, bars and restaurants there is also the original back-packers area called Long Beach Village. It is definitely not the most glorious of Phu Quoc beaches, but nice enough to be enjoyed as a lazy tourist, with everything you need nearby. The southern side of the small river is where South Truong beach begins. The farther south you go, the higher the chances you’ll find a stretch of sand all for yourself. Meaning a piece of beach not yet taken by small, exclusive, up-market resorts, of course. You have about 15 Km to explore. Good luck.
VONG BEACH BEACH
Vong Beach wins the price for the ugliest of Phu Quoc beaches, even though it’s not Mother Nature’s fault. Before man managed to spoil it, this was a narrow stretch of sand lined with casuarina trees and backed by thick vegetation, extending to the nearby rugged hills of Phu Quoc National Park. Potentially not too bad from a naturalistic point of view. Unfortunately, this unlucky beach has been developed for industrial rather than for touristic purposes. The main ferry terminal is here and the flow of passengers from the mainland pass through Vong beach. The village of Ham Ninh and its seafood restaurants is also located here, and the overall feeling of this place is more of a port than a beach. Ironically, it is the first beach people arriving by boat from the mainland can see, not a great first impression though. Moreover, the construction of new ferry piers has left the area littered and unkept. It may not be an inviting place for a swim, also because oil spillages are often spotted near the jetty, together with hundreds of jellyfish. Go there to feel sad about Mother Nature being raped. Or to eat seafood at Ham Ninh village.
RACH TRAM & RACH VEM BEACH
These two beaches are a somehow difficult to reach as they are in the far north part of the island and not yet linked by a paved road. Therefore, they are much less visited than other Phu Quoc beaches. Backed by steep hills dense with jungle, these shores retain a feeling of true wilderness, as lush tropical vegetation extend immediately behind the beach, which here is just a narrow stretch of yellowish, deep sand littered by pieces of wood, leaves, seaweed and whatever flotsam is deposited at every high tide. A few small and frankly squalid-looking fishing villages are located on these beaches. Unfortunately, like in many similar places in Cambodia and Thailand, fishermen villages on the beach mean lots of garbage scattered around the beach. The tourism industry seems to have missed these beaches, as there are no resorts yet. Go there to see how the local fishermen live.
A beach that belongs to Phu Quoc National Forest, Thom is quiet, silent, and very little populated. Exactly as you’d expect a beach in a national park to be: empty, almost all for yourself in its rough beauty, and with only a few bamboo bungalows and a restaurant to cater for the few castaways. It is a placid, sleepy place, where the only sounds are birds and cicadas. The unique touch of Thom is its shallow shore: at low tide the beach becomes enormous and stretches out at sea, to the point you can walk to the tiny Mot islet nearby. At high tide, some parts of the beach simply disappear. In conclusion, this is a very unique beach, with a flavor of its own. Go there to enjoy the nature and forget you are in Phu Quoc.
CUA CAN BEACH
This beach belongs to the homonymous village on stilts located on the western coast of Phu Quoc. On one side there is a small river meeting the sea, creating a picturesque sand bar. The village, the bridge over the river and the nice looking white sand make Cua Can a photogenic beach. Developed by a few, small-impact resorts, it’s a fine place and you can rent a kayak to explore the lush nature around the Cua Can river. Go there to take pictures.
BEACH GANH GIO
This small, lovely-looking beach belongs to the Shells Resort and it’s therefore considered a private beach. And it’s not the only one. Phu Quoc has more than a few small beaches accessible only through the resorts or by arriving on boat. These so-called private beaches are not supposedly open to non-residents, therefore they are not mentioned in this list. All beaches of this kind are usually very clean and pretty, as they are small and very well maintained by the management. Go there if you have a nice budget and a nice partner to share the beach with.
Phu Quoc Pepper Plantations
Phu Quoc pepper is one of the finest pepper in the world and the best you could find in Vietnam. During your stay in our beautiful Phu Quoc Island do not miss to visit one of the numerous pepper farms lying on the road. It a worth visit and experience and you will bring home an inexpensive spicy to lift your cooking up.
The main harvesting season run from February to July, however you can visit the farms all year around. The peppercorn are still harvest by hands and divided into 3 kinds: black pepper, white pepper and red pepper. The red pepper is especially very famous for its heat and strong aroma. Farmers in Phu Quoc do not use any kind of chemical fertilizers but only natural fertilizers. Plus the peppers are dry naturally by the sunlight and not with a machine as in other regions.
Phu Quoc produces about 1,000 tons of the best quality of peppercorn on the market and there is approximately 385 ha of pepper farms. You will find most of the pepper plantations in Cua Dong and Cua Can Villages which are very close to Chen Sea Resort & Spa. You can visit the farms, take pictures or just look at the pepper gardens.
You love riding a bicycle? Take and ride a bicycle from Chen Sea Resort & Spa and visit one of the farm near by. We will be happy to recommend you one of the pepper farm around. On your way back, I would suggest you to have a look on the wooden bridges on Cua Can Villages. A very unique and pleasant experience to discover the local life. Do not forget to bring your camera along with you to share with your relatives back home.
Dolce Far Niente
Literally it means: sweet doing nothing” and it starts to sound better. Sweet idleness sounds better as well, but the meaning is “sheer indulgent relaxation and blissful laziness” “the Art of enjoying doing nothing” It sounds so beautiful.
“Dolce Far Niente” should be a privilege moment that you share, like with your loved one, so to indulge yourself in activities that you have no time to handle in your everyday life, especially when glued to a social media.
The pleasure to sleep, rest, recuperate, contemplate nature, or a sea eagle going fishing, a hornbill calling his mate as it is time to join back the nest, sipping a cocktail as you watch the sunset and listen to the small swell, eating sane and tasty food (like Foodies do), breathe non polluted air and feel what is then happening to your lungs. Enjoy a walk, a swim, a Spa treatment, a nap in a hammock, enjoy what you never have the time for
This is “Dolce Far Niente” Indulge yourself in the Art of doing nothing, there is so much to do and enjoy.
Useful tips : To guarantee the safety and privacy of our guests, Chen Sea Resort and Spa is exclusive to our guests only. If you would like to invite some of your guests, please inform our management team.
