Regent Phu Quoc, IHG Hotels & Resorts’ sparkling jewel on Vietnam’s “Pearl Island,” has revealed details of its inaugural Regent Taste Studio, a one-of-a-kind, interactive dining experience that brings together leading local talent from the worlds of art, design, fashion and gastronomy in a four-night creative showcase.
Scheduled to run from 19th to 22nd April 2023 – to coincide with the resort’s first anniversary – this multi-sensory dining journey will pay homage to the beautiful island of Phu Quoc.
