Salinda Phu Quoc Resort review

As slow tourism is expected to gain ground while more tourists are drawn to coastal areas with family members for safety during and post pandemic, OnBird Phu Quoc has researched for a while for best services to help them better plan for upcoming arrivals in Phu Quoc island.

With the rapid growth in the number of hotels and resorts newly-built, Phu Quoc island has been facing many risks of ecological imbalance. Those who are determined to build back better post-Covid-19 through responsible tourism products like us are also very concerned about this situation.
Thus, our priority before introducing travel services to customers is that: Is this place environmentally friendly?
About 4km from Phu Quoc International Airport and about 7km from Duong Dong town, Salinda Phu Quoc is one of the rare 5-star resorts that we suppose to be on the top of the must-to-stay list when in our Pearl island.

Salinda resort breathes and operates in eco-friendly ways. More than 70% of the resort area covered with greenery and flowers creates a home for indigenous birds and butterflies that help maintain a pristine island ecosystem.


Their outdoor architecture is made with Accoya wood – the world’s most sustainable and durable wood. The production of Accoya wood uses renewable resources and requires little energy which does not cause greenhouse gas emissions. The wood itself absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, reducing its carbon footprint and remaining CO2 negative during its full life cycle.



All rocks here seem special, whether they are diamonds, rubies, emeralds, or even rocks that decorate the walls of Salinda! These Hoa Vang rocks – originally from mountains of Central Vietnam and carefully hand-carved in a famous craft village of Da Nang – are precious because they are 100% natural and their durability defies all the elements. But most importantly, the rocky walls absorb heat, which along with lush landscape adds to the cooling effect of the entire resort and creates Salinda’s very own microclimate.

The interior design philosophy is based on the elegant combination of contemporary comforts and genuine local traditions, found in every feature of 121 rooms and villas with private balconies. Each room category has unique wall art, showcasing the beauty of Vietnam, blending luxury amenities with the natural wonders of the island.


Even in the darkest hours of the day, Salinda resort can bring light into your life with LED lights. Around 85 % of the source of light in the resort comes from these eco-friendly lights which are designed to cut 4 out of 5 parts of energy consumption as opposed to regular lights. The light bulb itself doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or materials and it doesn’t allow any heat loss into the atmosphere, which is why it won’t interrupt the cool summer breezes during warm Phu Quoc nights. The LED lights are completely made out of recyclable materials, so after its long and durable lifespan, it can be sent away, dismantled, and reused again. This way, there will always be light despite the darkness of the nights.

The idea of building an environmentally friendly space from the beginning of construction has formed a firmly development-oriented resort as today. Similar to Salinda Phu Quoc Resort, and as for a tourism operator like OnBird Phu Quoc, we emphasize the need to provide excellent services without compromising the country’s natural resources and the community.
