From Italian mosaic in the lobby, Vietnamese ceramic art in the rooms and British silk wallpaper in the restaurants, Salinda Resort in Phu Quoc Island offers a wall of stories.

Broken Ceramic Mosaic - Deluxe Collection

The entire Deluxe Collection features a mosaic headboard made from pieces of broken ceramics. This technique is derived from the French pique assiette (plate thief), first introduced by Raymond Edouard Isadore. He covered his entire house with bits of pottery found around his neighborhood to express the idea of recycling and the significance of the found object.

While decorative Premium Deluxe Room walls introduce rainforest foliage to a more contemporary space, Deluxe Room walls are covered with broken ceramics in the shape of vases inspired by the royal brown patterned ceramics ‘gom hoa nau’, dating back as far as the 13th century to the great Tran Dynasty. The bulbous body of the crockery is highly influenced by the heroic culture of the time, imparting a more majestic and warrior-like appearance to the dynastic ceramics.

Bisazza Mosaic Wall Art - Main Lobby

Inspired by the colors of purple sunsets and natural pearls Phu Quoc in southern Vietnam is famed for, the reception wall is tiled with jewel-like mosaics in the shape of seashells.

Unique natural veining and purple pearlescence are captured in each of the individual pieces, ensuring no two shells are alike. The elegance of this purple backsplash aligned with the translucent white floors of the main lobby creates a peaceful atmosphere in which to relax after a long trip.

Italian Fresco - il Muro Italiano Restaurant

The panels of this Latin mural painting are called frescos ("fresh" from Italian) - the process of painting on freshly laid plaster with color pigments dissolved in water. Considered to be a unique Pompeiian art form, this fresco shows a series of consecutive events inspired by Villa of the Mysteries, famous for having one of the most important decorative fresco collections in the Roman world. This megalographia (a depiction of life-size figures) creates an illusion of the room extending further beyond the walls, masterly done by artists from Gallery Cau Vong.

Delta of Indochina - Grand Ballroom

Mythology is embedded within the culture of Vietnamese wetlands and is reflected through natural features, rarely seen in the world: red-crowned cranes, white lotus flowers, and ancient pink or white myrtle sim-berry trees. Pairs of cranes bond for life, and in Vietnam, they symbolize humankind’s most cherished hopes: a good marriage, long life, and heavenly bliss. Showcased in the Grand Ballroom, de Gournay’s timeless hand-painted artworks of the beautiful landscapes of southern Vietnam form the ultimate backdrop for couples to celebrate their love.
