“Absolutely perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2007

Wow! This was our first impression when entering the Sailing Club in Mui Ne. We just started our travels in Vietnam and wanted to start by relaxing a couple of days. We could not have made a better choice than Sailing Club. If you book, be sure to take a bungalow, as they are nicer than the regular rooms. And 75 usd for a top location is not a bad deal, I think. In this location, everything was absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway: seaside lounge area, beautiful open-air, but private showers in the bungalow, very professional personnel and great food. We were here in october and the weather was great - as most of the time in Mui Ne.

It's wise to book ahead, because (as we experienced) the location is frequently used for wedding parties.

After a three week backpacking (OK, almost flashpacking!) trip round south east asia we fancied a little luxury and boy did we get it! For around £20 a night each including breakfast we have a gorgeous room on the 1st floor of one of the small blocks with a balcony and a warm shower (the first one for 3 weeks!).

The pool is small but in a wonderful setting with views straight out to the sea. The restaurant is pricey by Vietnam standards but the food is very good - courtesy of a south african chef. it was very quiet when we went - if you're looking for on site night life it's not the pkace but a mile or so down the road is a few bars and clubs favoured by the kite surfing fraternity whihc are pretty lively.

You can go straight down onto the beach from the poolside and there's ample sun loungers whihc are really comfy. there is a bar snakc menu and you can retreat itno the shade and watch the world go by. This place is absolutely worth the bus ride from Saigon if you fancy relaxing for adya or so.

  • Liked — Decor, food, pool and great atmosphere
  • Disliked — not a sausage

We booked to stay 3 night at the Sailing Club in Mue Ni as it looked so nice on the internet. The reception is very dark and the staff were very unwelcoming which was not like all the other places we had stayed in Vietnam. We changed from the deluxe beahfront bungalow to an upstairs room for two reasons. There is no beach!! The beach has been corroded away so there is now just a big ditch straight down to the ocean which is held together with sandbags, so there is no where to sit on the beach and watch the world go by! Secondly the sound of the ocean was so loud! We live on the ebach here so are used to the sound of waves but this was beyond loud!! The room we moved to was very nice, small but nicely decorated with a lovely bathroom (shower only) and a great space to sit outside with a sofa and a pretty view of the garden na. Breakfast was very nice witht eh main course being freshly cooked to order. However after one night we found much better value up the road at a new hotel called Sunny Beach Resort which had a beach!! Beachfront bungalow was only US$60 a night for their opening special.
I would stay at Sailing Club but not if your a kit surfer as you ahve no beach to lay out your kite and not if you want to lay on sunlungers on the sand, oh and the pool is tiny!! (But nice!)

Booked this with Asiarooms and initially booked a bungalow, however they made a mistake and ended up with one of the cheaper Sapa Rooms. Contacted the hotel directly and they arranged a transfer from Saigon airport (a 3 hour journey). Checked in without any problem, and was shown to the room. It was small but beautifully decorated, with a mosquito net over the bed, TV, mini-bar and rustic bathroom (with constant hot water thanks to the electric shower). Only downside was that you could hear everything (and I mean everything) that happened in the room next door - ear plugs are a must!
The hotel itself is a beautiful little boutique hotel, with lovely gardens and a nice little saltwater pool. There were plenty of sunbeds, although had the perennial problem of people reserving sunbeds all day but maybe only using them for about an hour. Sunbeds on the beach were great, you got a lovely sea breeze in the morning, but then got sandblasted in the afternoon.
Good selection on the menu at breakfast, from full American Breakfasts to baked muesli to a "kite surfer's smoothie". The restaurant also did lovely food for lunch although it was overpriced, you could go to one of the restaurants over the road and get a meal for half the price.
The hotel bar was great, right on the beach overlooking the South China Sea, and they did a good selection of beers and cocktails (recommend the Mojito).
The hotel did eventually offer an upgrade to a bungalow (at a cost) but I declined sinced I didn't fancy packing up again.
Mui Ne is a very quiet place, but there are plenty of bars/restaurants and a few shops. Great for chilling out and I would love to go back. I'd have no hesitation in staying in the Sailing Club.
For transport back to Saigon just used one of the local travel agents in Mui Ne, and they charged about half of what the hotel did.

  • Liked — The Pool and the Bar
  • Disliked — Paper thin walls in the Sapa Rooms
  • Tips/Secrets — Grab a sunbed early

We booked the Sailing Club on the recommendation of a friend of a friend (who incidentally is related to the management of the property!!) and weren't disappointed. It's a very relaxing resort, right on the beach yet within walking distance of other resorts and restaurants should you wish to venture off site. A word of warning though - even when it's cloudy the sun is really strong.... pack lots of sunscreen!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sailing Club in Mui ne. There isn't a lot to do in this area of Vietnam but lay in the sun and relax so I really appreciated the amenities of the resort.

*it is located in an excellent position, close to restaurants of all standards and styles. Complimentary bikes are available if you wish to travel further.
*The rooms are compact but tastefully decorated with large bathrooms. (chn were very happy with Austn tv channel)
*The breakfast buffet(included) and menu(you choose one item each day as well as buffet) is fantastic with the emphasis on quality rather than quantity.
*The pool is small but lovely and the beach is only a few steps away. The water(a little warm at times) was always clean and enticing. It gets very busy here on the weekends so aim for a Mon- Fri stay.
*The sunlounges are the most comfortable and luxurious I have ever encountered. Bring plenty of reading material and sunscreen.
*The spa/salon was professional. A little pricey but used dermalogica products.
*Huge, thick beach/pool towels left at door (on lovely day bed)each morning.
*The staff were helpful when needed but didn't go overboard to make the best impression. Could use a friendly concierge type in the foyer.
*The menu for lunch around the pool is limited and quite expensive. We didn't eat in the restaurant as there are great options close by. Drinks also a little more expensive here. Have the duty free out on the balcony. Shop directly across the road sells mixers and snacks.
*The beach was private, clean and with the same terrific lounges(use plenty of repellent as the sand flies and mosquitoes are a killer, you never see them but heaps of bites). Windy in the afternoons but perfect if you are into kite surfing. Airwaves has a booth on property with all equipment available for hire.
*Free unlimited internet in a room in foyer and a great library in billiard room above the restaurant if you need another book. Beautiful and comfortable cane furniture in all areas of the resort.

  • Liked — location, breakfast, sunlounges.
  • Disliked — leaving
  • Tips/Secrets — This is a real get away and relax spot. Be prepared to chill out.

I have just stayed for 6 nights at the Sailing Club, in one of the deluxe beach bungalows. I took the open bus from HCMC (not too bad, about US$8) and the hotel's transport back to make sure I caught my flight home (easy, but US$80!)

Positives: room was very nice, staff extremely helpful (if I reported a problem, it was fixed within 30 mins). Great ambience, and the grounds were immaculate. Very relaxing and as it is not a big hotel, you get to know some of the other guests (important for me since I was travelling alone!) Comfy beds by the pool and on the beach.

If you can, I would avoid the weekend, as that is when the HCMC expats come to stay, and they can be quite insular, unfriendly and unnecessarily demanding/arrogant towards the staff. As it was low season, it was very quiet in Mui Ne - even on Saturday night the most popular bars almost had more staff than guests! But super-relaxing place and great weather (hot!) I didnt try the hotel's spa, but did go to Foresters Spa down the street (just over a 5 min walk) which was a tad cheaper and pretty good.

Negatives: the South African chef praised in other reviews has left the Sailing Club, and I was kind of disappointed in the food. I know I am spoiled coming from Melbourne, but I thought the food was pretty average. Reasonably priced and completely fine, but nothing great. Unfortunately I didnt find anything too great outside of the hotel either, so I ended up mostly eating at the hotel. The fresh seafood place up the road (where you pick your food out of the tanks) was probably the best meal I had in Mui Ne.

What else? Guava is a pretty good bar close by (about a 3 min walk) - part-owned by the Sailing Club guys and has only been opened a short time so isnt in the guide books.

That's all I can think of - have fun!
