Salinda Resort won Vietnam’s Leading Boutique Resort and Asia’s Leading Beach Boutique Resort awards at the WTA 2019.

The resort provides an intimate and luxurious experience to its guests with its architecture and landscape complementing the natural setting of the island with tropical gardens and a coconut grove. Each of its deluxe rooms, suites and villas showcases the beauty of Vietnam through wall art that highlights cultural treasures like traditional royal pottery or pearl shells.

While the resort is wrapped in a green silken shawl with over 100 tree varieties and flowering plants, it also aims to promote environmental stewardship in daily operations, substituting plastic with naturally recyclable materials, from wooden bathroom amenities to bamboo straws – all part of the Purple by Salinda Sustainability Initiative.

Since May 2019, Salinda has been an official collaborator with WWF-Vietnam for Plastic Reduction Management on Phu Quoc Island.
