Welcome to Mango Bay Resort
Mango Bay feels a long way from the noise and bustle of the city, a beach resort to de-stress and luxuriate in. The ten-hectare, low density resort holds some very up to date surprises, a cocktail bar serving tropical and topical drinks, restaurants where pared down Italian and innovative Vietnamese menus make use of the glorious seafood and other local, natural produce. The recently renovated spa is available to bring your levels of relaxation to new heights and every beautiful room and villa is spaced for maximum enjoyment. Mango Bay is a gloriously comfortable place to get away from it all, and focus on sensual you.
LIVE IT THROUGH YOUR SENSES
Playful waves breaking on the shoreline, the aroma of world class shrimp on the barbeque, the sight of an early moon in the sky. Mango Bay is a paradise for the senses, a holiday playground to let Mother nature bring tranquillity into our busy lives. The perfect place for sensual, wonderful you.
At Mango Bay we have a long term view as a sustainable resort, seeing ourselves as custodians of the tropical idyll we have found on Phu Quoc.

Working with WAR
Wildlife at Risk
Since 2006, Mango Bay has been supporting Wildlife At Risk (WAR) in conservation of the biodiversity of Vietnam, focusing on Phu Quoc Island.
With Mango Bay’s financial support, WAR has been conducting numerous biodiversity surveys on butterfly, fish, bat, reptile and amphibian, orchid, and plant on Phu Quoc Island and has revealed many new species for Vietnam.
Mango Bay supports WAR and Phu Quoc National Park to collect and replant the Dipterocarpus, an indigenous plant that is becoming rare on Phu Quoc Island due to illegal logging.
Photo books those are results of the biodiversity surveys were also supported to be published.
