The resort itself is beautiful and of course the scenery cannot be beat! Rented a kayak (not included in price as claimed on their website) and toured around the islands on our own, which was lovely. There is no wifi, which we were happy about. The room was rustic with no air conditioning. The bathroom was quite small and the... More

We arranged to spend a night here on the way back from a boat trip with Cat Ba Ventures. On first impressions, the scenery is very beautiful. Just such a shame about the treatment we received. The manager of this resort is the most unprofessional and rudest I've ever met. He was extremely unwelcoming when we first arrived but the... More

We booked two night but everything went wrong, we would not recommend for anyone to come here again. The resort is very nice location where we did not mind about "no fone,no internet connection" and more than that, these were what we experienced : - Resort did not inform that we need to pay 60,000VND (about 3$/2 pier tickets) and...

We stayed at the resort for one night during our trip to Northern Vietnam. We were lucky enough to get a room with air conditioning, as not all rooms do. However, the power cuts out almost every hour which can be quite bothersome. The resort itself is very nice. The bungalows are in good condition and the grounds are well... More

My family stayed here for one night in a twin room of the sea view wooden bungalow. The landscape is romantic, the beach is narrow but nice and clean, with silent waves. Kayaking is good and very cheap. Breakfast is good too. Everything is good but I can't sleep well with the bad mattress and loudly air conditioner.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for one night on our 2 day Halong Boat stay. Such a nice little island, free kayaks which we took around the back of the island, seeing amazing views, floating villages, caves and cool birds. Mr Ten was really friendly and attentive, our windows wouldn't lock so the staff were straight on it to... More

What a unique experience! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was phenomenal and well priced. Could use some hammocks and pillows for the wooden lounge chairs. Kayaking is splendid, the nearby floating villages, beaches and scenery are unbelievable. An absolute one of a kind adventure!

UNIQUE Paradise . Even though it's basically backpackers just being here in this seemingly lost world, in the evening and at daybreak. Those surreal days in your life where you pinch yourself a little and yes sit back and breath and daydream think read wander, it's really something else. Very interesting diverse groups of Americans Europeans Asian passing through this... More

Incredible staff. Super helpful and warm. Tours available through hotel (though a little overpriced). If you're looking for a quiet, remote hide out for a couple of days while you visit Halong Bay... this is the perfect spot. Note... it's about an hour boat ride from Catba and there's nothing else on the island but the hotel. So once you're... More

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
