CNN names Phu Quoc Island one of the world’s top luxury travel destinations

VOV.VN - The JW Marriott Emerald Bay Resort on Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam has been named one of the top luxury travel offerings of 2017 for the privileged few, by the US’s CNN.

Phu Quoc, an island off the southwestern coast of Vietnam, is gaining a reputation as one of Asia's hottest beach destinations. JW Marriott's new Emerald Bay Resort features a number of villas, but none as eye-catching-or expensive-as Lamarck House, which starts at US$10,000 per night.

Sand-between-the-toes experiences rarely gets more exclusive than the private 4.6-square-mile Laucala Island in the South Pacific nation of Fiji. All-inclusive rooms start from US$6,000 per night.

Magic “gers”, Mongolia: Staying in mobile luxury camps, known traditionally as "gers," allows visitors to roam the majestic landscape and wake up to panoramic views of the legendary Mongolian steppe grasslands, mountains, sand dunes or rivers. An exclusive long weekend for a couple starts at approximately US$4,800.

Ultimate Shanghai weekend, The Peninsula, Shanghai: A weekend package to The Peninsula, Shanghai, offers a way to experience the city in unmatched style from the hotel's historic Bund riverfront location. The weekend package in the Peninsula Suite comes in at US$32,650.

Wine and dine weekend, Zürich: A package at Zürich's timeless Baur Au Lac Hotel, in business for 173 years, gives guests a glimpse of what they're missing. From US$6,400 per couple, staying in a suite.

US Open final experience, Baccarat Hotel, New York: For sport fans, few experiences can rival a Grand Slam tennis final and that's exactly what's on the cards with the US Open men’s final package through New York's Baccarat Hotel. Total package for two is US$12,015.

World's largest cruise suite, Regent Seven Seas: Want to hit the waves in style? It doesn't get any bigger or grander than the 4,434-square-foot Regent Suite, the world's largest cruise ship accommodation, aboard the Regent Seven Seas Explorer. It costs from US$10,000 per night. 

The London Edition, Penthouse Suite: London is hardly short on hotel options, but few can match the private apartment feel of The Penthouse at The London Edition. Room only from £4,995 per night.

Time + Tide Miavana, Madagascar: The Indian Ocean island of Madagascar is one of the planet's true biodiversity hotspots and a new property called Time + Tide Miavana, the country's first five-star lodge, allows visitors to explore it in unmatched style. It costs from US$5,000 per night.

Fairmont Penthouse Suite, San Francisco: For anyone looking for a Penthouse Suite to seriously party, the 6,000 square feet across the entire eighth floor of the historic Fairmont San Francisco should do the job. It costs from US$18,000 per night.
