Hon Thom Island is an iconic integrated resort and hospitality destination along the vibrant Bai Trao Beach in Phu Quoc, Vietnam. Located in the northwest of Hon Thom Island, the resort masterplan unfolds through 1km of coastal frontage and across 20ha of premium beach and waterfront. The scheme will enhance connectivity to the wider archipelago through private and VIP marinas, a public jetty and helipad, in addition to a cable car connecting the island to Phu Quoc.

The development features an integrated resort tower as well as luxury hotels, beachside and clifftop villas, townhouses and beach clubs boasting panoramic coastal views. The landmark tower is designed to evoke a pair of billowing sails departing into the Gulf of Thailand. Luxury rooms are placed across the curvature of the sails, making the most of the generous views towards the horizon and the lush backdrop of mountain slopes. A double-skin glass facade accentuates the lightness of the sails, establishing a sense of movement and direction throughout the scheme. Public areas such as a viewing deck and gardens are placed on the lower floors to form a podium that extends to connect the other components.
