I came here to dive instead of Nha Trang and am glad I did, really liked this place. Stayed an extra day. For people who want the cheapest budget accommodation: it's not for you. For people who want the Sheraton: stay in Nha Trang. But for those of you who, like me, lie somewhere in between, this is a great... More

We stayed here to dive with Rainbow Divers (who were great btw!!) and found that the island itself and the area was stunningly beautiful and quiet (no motorbikes/traffic to be found). However, it was unbelievably expensive for what was offered, you have to eat their $14 each meal which we found in the most part inedible. We emailed ahead explaining... More

A wonderful place away from the maddening rush of the city, surrounded by one of the most picturesque bays, mountains.... Crystal clear water, jungle trekking adventure, snorkeling, scuba diving, you name it, and it's there... Excellent staff, very friendly and courteous... All in all, great values for money....

The transfers throughout were seamless and so well organised, very very helpful and friendly staff, assisting along the way. Island is exactly as it appears, no surprises (apart... More

Whale Island is like a little paradise, very relaing! and quiet! The resort is nice, the bar is overlooking the sea and the rooms are very comfortable. It's an eco resort and the rooms are little huts so be prepared for a few bugs, but a net around the bed is provided, so had a wonderfull and conmfortbale night sleep... More

The whale island is a nice place but if i was the owner of this resort , i will be a little afraid about the pollution made by all the fish farm around. Imagine this place is a reserve but every morning if you wake up earlier than the gardeners you can see hundred of plastic bags on the beach.... More

So sad we could only stay for 2 nights travelling with a group.Away from the world for a while. Keep in mind that you need to have all essentials with you because they only offer 3 meals a day and a bar (also free water available). Wifi is only at the bar which is more then enough. At night some... More

Calm and lovely. The staff did they outmost to please us. The Food was great and the evenings were magical. The morning trip around the island and the wiew point made us feel like we have worked out.... at least alitlebit, and after that it was very easy to sit down, read and do nothing.. We had a great stay.
