When we visited it was very quiet and our host was very helpful and accommodating. We were upgraded to a hut/shack overlooking the lake that had stunning views from the upstairs veranda. We booked our tour through them and they were really helpful. To make this an even better place to stay it would be good if rubbish were cleared quickly- there was a rubbish bag near our door for our whole stay (not only is it unsightly but may attract unwanted critters). It would also be good for the wood on the inside and outside of the huts to be treated to prevent any pests. Overall a good stay here with friendly staff.

Absolutely magical. There aren't enough words to describe how remarkable this place is. The modern and ethnic interior decor of the bungalows feels like from a movie and makes you feel truly special. Not to mention the amazing feeling of the sunlight which wakes you up through the big windows in the morning. After a few months of traveling, staying at Nguyen Shack felt like an ultimate retreat. The staff is beyond friendly - they treat you like queens and kings always helpful and smiling. The food is fresh and flavorful, the nature around is breathtaking. It's just perfect. If I have a chance to go back to Vietnam, I'm definitely staying in Nguyen Shack. And for sure longer than the first time.

It's a great concept and we stayed for 4 nights in one of the larger lodges. Super views onto the lake. Good menu for breakfast and lunches/dinners. The pool, over looking the lake also is lovely and refreshing after slogging round the caves in the heat. Staff super attentive and nothing too much trouble...bookings, rebooting and drinks and snacks. Eco lodges are that. Rustic and interestingly (in a good way) put together. Air con great and mozzie nets on beds... needed but not for mozzies. Shower and bathroom more than adequate. I would stay again but I would also urge the owners to place rubbish away from the kitchens and pathways. Over the 4 days the pile got bigger and smelled. No need to have that in view on such a big site.

The property is set on a lake with gorgeous views and peaceful atmosphere. The rooms are rustic but still have the amenities needed to be comfortable (i.e. air con). We only stayed one night but really enjoyed the room and also the atmosphere. The food at the restaurant is very good and we wish we could’ve spent some time in the beautiful pool! The staff were super friendly and helpful with everything. Highly recommend!

Nguyen Shack was definitely the best place to stay in Phong Nha! You’re just in the middle of this beautiful nature and landscape. We got a great room from where we had a wonderful view on the lake and mountains in front of the hotel. Everything was so well done and comfy - we even stayed half a day at our balcony to relax and absorb this tranquility of the place. The food at the restaurant was very delicious and the staff super friendly and helpful with any issue we had during our stay. I’d love to go back one day!!

We had the pleasure of following yoga in a small class. Anastasia is a wonderful teacher. She encouraged us with the yoga practice. It was just what we needed. We felt great after taking her classes. We recommend it to everyone who stays in Nguyen Shack. Katrien and Dominique (Belgium)

Staying at Nguyen Shack and seeing the sights withi Phong Nha was easily the highlight of my trip to Vietnam. The staff here are incredibly helpful, thoughtful and caring about their guests. You feel like you're staying at a boutique resort. They have excellent English and can offer you many options for tours and adventures in the area. I highly recommend the overnight cave trekking experience, visiting Hang En was by far the coolest thing I have done in my life. In addition to this, the rooms at the resort are wonderful! Get the proper room with balcony so you can spend your downtime in the afternoons or evenings lounging on the outdoor daybed on the lake. It's calm and peaceful and lovely. The restaurant here was great, had lots of tasty options and within a good price. Thank you to the staff for being such gracious hosts, you made my trip :) Don't hesitate, book now!

Of all the places visited in Vietnam, Phuong Nha was our favourite and Nguyen Shack Eco Resort was a big part of the reason. With its simple, yet endearing huts nestled picturesquely at the lakeside, set among the trees and produce gardens, this is a place of eco-sensitivity, peacefulness and joy. The staff were exceptional: helpful, friendly and fun. Thank you Tu and all your wonderful team. We'll be back!

We actually traveled here on the first day of Tet and were fearful of not getting any food. Pleasant to find out the place is ran by young ladies from the area, quite capable, friendly, helpful and plenty of good food from the kitchen. Little piglet and her best friend the duck run around the resort, along with a couple of puppies entertain the hotel guests. But I find most outstanding about the place is the absent young woman who is the owner of this place. Employees have nothing but praise and gratitude as she built this place after three other locations, having improved the lives of the people who live in ostensibly the poorest part of Vietnam, by hiring the locals and buying their products. What a risk she took, I hope her rewards will be handsome.

The rooms with mountain- and lakeview are so pretty, especially with the morningsun over the lake. The stuff is great, all the girls working there are superfriendly and make your stay even better! We recommend this place for everyone visiting phong nha nationalpark!!!
