The property itself is well maintained. The rooms are clean but very Spartan and the bathroom is a combo one so there is no stand alone shower. Service was good as it appears the owner lives on site. Understand that this is not a luxury hotel. There are only for bungalows and aside from and and bathroom there is nothing... More

My husband and I sailed on the Whisper in early May. The captain, Jeff was extremely friendly, and knowledgeable of the local wildlife. We sailed all over the bay and were delighted by the information Jeff and friend Jim shared. Weather was perfect, saw dolphins, a ray, and frigate birds amongst other things. The entire experience was, in the words... More

We had a wonderful time at whisper nature bungalow. We stayed for four nights and felt it was the perfect amount of time for us, it was a lovely break from the busyness of Cat Ba Town. The bungalows are small but homely and clean with mosquito nets provided (much needed in our case). The view and location are spectacular,... More

Ourvisit wasfor 2 days which was a lovely break from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. If we were to do it again we wouldn't change anything. We booked the trip from Australia through APT and were very satisfied with the Dragon Boat Cruise especially the wonderful memorable but short swim we had at Monkey Island with the boat moored...

I stayed in a private bungalow not more than 50 yards from the jungle. There was a small's stream and garden in front of my bungalow. I opened the doors and windows and fell asleep listening to the sound coming from the jungle.it was a nice surprise to find that a few of the bungalows even had Wi-Fi available. The... More

We booked bungalow thru a Halong bay\ Lan ha bay dragon cruise tour from Hanoi. Everything was well organized and dropped off at harbor and rode bikes thru jungle and karst scenery 5km to village. Our bungalow was great w/ all the amenities in a quiet village setting. It was peaceful and relaxing just what we were looking for. Definitely... More

On one side it's an amazing place once you get there. The bicycle trip from the harbor is amazing, as is the view from the bungalows. The owner and his wife are great, food is as well. The bungalows however are a bit spartan/ basic. Bring a hammock! 2 nights is sufficient in my opinion. The trip combined with the... More

This is the most not only the most surprising part of my trip, but also my favorite. Traveling with a friend, I booked this place and it ended up being exactly what we both want. Don't expect overly luxurious rooms, but do expect some of the best service, food, scenery, and hikes you'll ever have. This place was the best... More

I visited Viet Hai in February of 2014 with a school group. We took a long and strenuous hike through the jungle to get here, but there are most likely easier ways to visit. The view around these bungalows are completely breathtaking and there is an access point to Lan Ha bay nearby which is also a must see.

We spent two nights here and it's fantastic for those who want to get away from the hubbub and chaos that comes with any town or city. These bungalows are in a remote village that can only be accessed by boat from Cat Ba Town - either that or a 3 hours trek through a jungle. If you like adventure,... More
