This was my second stay on whale island and this time I bought my mother and boyfriend with me. It was the perfect island getaway. Alex and his staff were as caring and attentive as ever. We arranged the shuttle from Nha Trang and were met at the island by the lovely, friendly staff who showed us to our rooms,... More

It s a good place for those who want to be away from everything everywhere, and away from modernity...no air con, no good facilities...in a paradise place (if you don't go too much outside of the compound...other places full of garbage). Unfortunatly the stayed turned to hard times because of many small bad services: the grooms dont take your suitcases... More

like no others, simple facilities but that's enough. Enjoy very much for the services, food (a bit since I love tasty dishes but no plain) and its surrounding. good to spend your time with your loved one with totally care for your partner. Romance is always around.

Stayed here for four nights in April with my wife and friends. The island resort is stunning and the rooms are comfortable. The food was excellent with long lazy lunches and dinners. Fantastic for sunbathing and swimming and also diving with Rainbow Divers. Drinks prices were very reasonable and we will definitely return next time in Vietnam.

We stayed on the island for 3 nights. Complete relaxation. It was blissful. We had a room on the beach which was well worth the extra few dollars. The food was fabulous. The meals are set, there is no choice but this was the beauty of it. It took away having to make a decision. The massage was to die... More

Stayed here 4 nights and we could only wish it were more! The island is small and lovely to trek around (it takes about 30-40 minutes if you're fit enough) to do a whole circuit. Other general comments are that it helps to know French and that, quite honestly, garden rooms or sea rooms aren't much different (depending on your... More
