Voted by Travel + Leisure’s global readership of avid travel connoisseurs, the awards honor the top travel destinations, hotels and companies worldwide.
The World’s Best travel awards program is run by Travel + Leisure based on an annual reader survey. The 2019 survey was open at tlworldsbest.com from November 6, 2018 to March 4, 2019.
Renowned for its picture-perfect white beaches and fuchsia sunsets, Phu Quoc is a secluded island trove off the south coast of Vietnam.
A whimsical property on this idyllic island’s beach, the JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay resort was conceptualized by celebrated architect Bill Bensley and features a unique design based on the fictional narrative of a legendary academy, Lamarck University.
The resort is a unique paradise offering guests five-star luxury with an exceptionally creative twist at every turn, thanks to Bensley’s tale of Lamarck University, told throughout the resort to conjure truly aesthetic harmony.
An evolution in the architectural style, from its supposed beginnings in the 1880s through to the 1940s, ensures that the resort feels like a campus of individual boutique-scale buildings developed over time, rather than a large resort, with each modeled after an academic department.
To celebrate these sought-after awards, the JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay resort is offering up to US$200 in Resort Credit for guests making a reservation and staying from one to three nights, from now until October 31, 2019.
