South Phu Quoc follows in the footsteps of the world’s top destinations

KIEN GIANG – Natural beauty, many works, infrastructure – world-class services are considered to be the driving force to help the South pearl island no less than the Maldives, Brazil, or Dubai.

Resort paradise-like Maldives

With the current reputation of the Maldives, few would have thought that 40 years ago, this destination was rated as “no tourism potential”. The clear water beaches would have been forgotten, if it weren’t for the bold investors to explore and create unique resort bungalows on the water or restaurants, bars, and resorts under the ocean.

The Maldives, thanks to that, has become a vacation destination for the richest people in the world. Before the Covid-19 attack, there was a period when this “paradise was not created by God” attracted more than 1.7 million visitors, bringing in revenue accounting for more than 28% of GDP.

Compared to the Maldives, the natural beauty of Phu Quoc is said to be “not inferior”. Bill Bensley, the king of resorts, has traveled the world, arriving at the top destinations once exclaiming: “Phu Quoc is indescribably beautiful”. In 2016, he and Sun Group created the JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay resort at Bai Kem, laying the first brick for a high-class resort paradise in the South Island.

Five years later, three more luxury resorts were built here by Sun Group, including Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort, Premier Residences Phu Quoc Emerald Bay, and New World Phu Quoc Resort. Here, Sun Premier Village The Eden Bay or Sun Tropical Village with super-luxury resort villas and “private plot” services are formed, bringing to the South Island resort models leading international trends in Vietnam.

From a resort perspective, experts assess that the new Maldives of the world is taking shape in the South Island. “Phu Quoc can completely breakthrough and become Asia’s new Phuket or Maldives”, PGT.Dr Tran Dinh Thien once shared.

Festival centers like Brazil

One of the successful experiences of many tourism powerhouses is to take festivals and arts and culture as a catalyst, creating attractiveness for the destination, attracting tourists to visit and experience and come back again and again.

For example, Brazil – the mecca of carnivals. Every New Year, visitors flock to the capital of this South American country to enjoy a lively carnival street party with hot Sambe de Roda dances. According to statistics, in 2019 alone, Brazil welcomed about 1.6 million tourists, bringing in nearly 1 billion USD in revenue, thanks to Carnival festivals alone.

This Brazilian strategy is becoming a model for South Phu Quoc when Sun Group is trying to turn the South Pearl Island into “a destination of prosperity” with 12 spectacular festivals lasting all year.

Last year, the New Year Countdown 2021 concert with a special music party and colorful fireworks made Nam Dao awake and excited in the moment of welcoming the new year. It is expected that if Covid-19 is well controlled by the end of this year, the South Island will continue to explode with vibrant festivals.

In the near future, Sun Group will bring Vortex – an art show of technology and light to the South Island. The show is an indispensable spiritual dish for visitors to Singapore, promising to turn the South Island into a gathering place of prosperity. Along with other festivals that will be held continuously, Sun Group hopes that the South Island will gradually shape into a leading cultural tourism center in the region.

Tourism infrastructure, services and real estate follow Dubai

In the 50s of the last century, Dubai was just a small port with a harsh, arid climate, poor natural resources, and a small population. By the 2000s, Dubai had become a prosperous metropolis, the economic and financial center of the Middle East and the world.

The city’s miracle development story lies in the development orientation of infrastructure, services and tourism and the application of a superior execution strategy. Once upon a time, Dubai was like a great construction site. Then, the desert land completely changed, with iconic works, new experiences, and one-of-a-kind real estate projects.

The vision of Dubai’s prosperous future has been partially applied by investors like Sun Group in South Phu Quoc. Not creating single projects, Sun Group implements an in-depth investment strategy, synchronously creating in the South Island a three-pronged ecosystem, including tourism, entertainment, and real estate. After 5 years, the works built by Sun Group have reached 50, new experiences are constantly being added. The appearance of the South Island changes every day.
