Lovely tropical bungalows
Mai House has 30 lovely white stucco and thatched-roof bungalows on an expansive lawn rambling down to Long Beach, set with plenty of breathing room in between each.
Rooms are understated and tastefully decorated, with bamboo blinds, terracotta tiled floors and Vietnamese comforters on four-poster beds draped in a mosquito net. There are tasteful details and more atmosphere here that most new Phu Quoc accommodation lack, such as exposed natural stone and woven chair seats. The bathroom is a practical affair with some inviting touches though it does look a bit tired. There’s a dark wood sink vanity and a spacious shower with decorative tile work forming butterflies. Each bungalow has a lush row of greenery in front of the terrace to provide some privacy. The grounds look meticulously maintained and their beachfront is stunning – lofty palms dot the wide stretch of beachfront Mai House has claim to. The central Long Beach location, the generous number of sunbeds and their oceanfront bar/lounge with pool table is icing on the cake and it will help you forget the hotel’s glacial service. A large buffet breakfast is included in the price as is WiFi and air-con.
