Phuquoc island travel – Bo Resort has been created and is operated by a French/Vietnamese couple. This idyllic hideaway is ‘back to nature’ in every sense, nestled in plush and luxuriant gardens sloping down to a private beach and backed by mountains. Bo Resort follows an eco-lodge concept: there are no televisions, no telephone, no air-con. The rooms are equipped with fans in case the breeze from the sea would be too light. We have included hot water by solar panels.
Twenty individual bungalows are set on a hill, each offering views towards the bay from private balconies.
Bo Resort sits on a forested hill that rolls down to the Gulf of Thailand. Paths weave down to an apron of lawn that ends at palm-fringed sands. We have a shaded Bar and a Restaurant down by the sea. The Bar is kind of the “social hub” of Bo.
Being on a hill, all our bungalows have a view towards the shore. They have 24-hour electricity, a fan and hot water by a solar system. Unlike in many resorts, those are individual bungalows. No neighbor next door! Nobody in front of you either. It is probably the last thing you want to see. You have privacy even on your balcony, as the bungalows are at least 30 feet apart.
All our houses are essentially made of wood and from local materials. They all have the same design, except that the small ones have a thatched roof, the bigger ones a tiled roof. They do not have air-conditioning, but they have fans. Hot water is provided via a solar system. The windows do not have glass panes, to allow the sea breeze to flow freely through. However they all have wooden shutters.
