Wyndham Garden Phu Quoc is a tropical holiday resort located in Phu Quoc, Vietnam’s largest Island in Kien Giang province. The resort is designed to accommodate 150 villas on a seven hectare site with no views to the coast.

Despite the lack of sea views, Vietnamese architects, MIA design studio were able to create an oasis of sorts with lush inward facing 2 and 3 bedroom villas. Each villa is designed as modern iteration of the traditional Vietnamese courtyard home, and features a large central garden court with open-air swimming pool and vibrant greenery enveloping the habitable volumes. Green curtains, made up of Tarlmounia, a tropical creeping plant native to Asia, replace walls and doors in the open plan living area helping residents connect with the outdoors.

The villa’s interior features a restrained material palette of predominantly white walls, terrazzo tiles and wood fittings and furniture. The villas have been planned such that 5 to 7 villas form a small ‘village’ with separate paths and shared yard, all without sacrificing the individual privacy of each villa. The design of the resort commenced in 2016 with construction kicking of in 2018. Completion is scheduled for 2020.
