Dear Mungkornz, Many thanks to you for giving us good review on Tripadvisor. Through your short description, we realize you totally enjoyed your staying. Most of our clients love staying here. Perhaps it's located on isolated island in Lan Ha Bay - without pub, bar, bustle street, only mountain, sand and sea. Not very far from Catba Town We want... More

We only stayed one night here as part of an organised Ha Long Bay tour, and was terrible. I try not to give bad reviews, and to offer constructive criticism, but it was extremely difficult in this case. Ha Long Bay is so beautiful but this place is definitely not! We were allegedly staying in a 'deluxe' bungalow, which was... More

My best friend and I traveled to Cat Ba without a tour group or a guide. We were the only two that arrived with no arranged schedule--everyone else had a new location to move to the next day, with a coordinated schedule provided by their agents. In all honesty, the stay would not have been as memorable and fun without... More

This is a good place to stay if you don't mind a lack of options and being ripped off. You can't choose where to eat so you have to eat the hotel's barbecue dinner for about $8 every night. There are quite a few things to do specifically playing billiards foosball and kayaking which are a lot of fun and... More

Nam Cat Island is beautiful. We had a lovely, short stay here. Unfortunately we visited during winter & it was quite cold so really there was not much to do at all. There are kayaks provided but not much else. It looked like a beautiful place for a swim, so a summer visit would be better. While the food was... More

or only one night. That said, the experience there was simply amazing. Our main host at the resort, Mr. Ten, was very sociable, funny, and hospitable. The cuisine was delectable as well. We enjoyed lunch and a buffet dinner on the first day, and a breakfast the morning before departure. Ten and other staff also set up a football match:... More
