SOL by Meliá Phu Quoc will establish the first presence of the Melia Hotel Group on the fast-developing island in southwest Vietnam. As per the brand concept, the facilities are aimed at young international travelers as well as the growing young hip Vietnamese middle class.

The Sol Beach house was topped out in 6/2016 and is preparing for soft opening in December 2016.

Inspirations were found in the dune landscape of the immediate surroundings and the jungle of the hillsides. Soft curved sand-colored solid forms were combined with wood shading louvers to create facades which change appearance dependent on the time of day. Predominant colors for the facade a sand and earth tones mixed with dark wood colors.
