How to get to The Shell Resort & Spa?
Phu Quoc Island lies in the Gulf of Thailand, 45km west of Ha Tien, a small city on the Vietnam/Cambodia border, and 15km south of the Cambodian coast. The easiest way to reach the island is by air, and there are direct flights from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, with Vietnam Airlines and VietJet Air.
The Shells Resort & Spa is located on a pristine private beach just 50 minutes north of Phu Quoc International Airport. The main town on the island – Duong Dung – is a short 15 minute drive away.

Tips for you
Despite mixed reviews, we still decided to choose The Shells, and we would never regret. The rooms are overlooking the pool and the sea, just like those pictures posted by the resorts. The architecture and the rooms are well designed, brand new and really interesting. The service is very good, the staff are very friendly and helpful. What's more interesting is there are some philippine staff who can speak English very well so language will never be a problem. The breakfast includes a decent range of dishes, from Vietnamese traditional food to Western bread, salad,... I'm sure you will be very satisfied with breakfast. We also dine once at the resort's restaurant, the food is pretty tasty and well ranged. You will also cheer up to some live music by a Philip groups in the evening while enjoying your dinner. However, there are some cons but they are not really a problem. The wifi of the rooms at the side is really bad, very unstable. However, that of the rooms at the center is excellent, i hope the resort will fix this. Moreover, It takes about 6-7 kms to go downtown from the resort, about 100VND if you take a taxi. Also, the road to the resort is under construction, but it doesn't make much a discomfort. One more thing, remember one room is for 2 adults and 1 children under 12. If you have 2 adults and 2 big children like us (15,17), you will certainly have to book 2 rooms.
