First place we stayed on the island. Would have happily stayed for the three weeks we were here but felt obliged to have some different experiences. The staff were all very attentive and obliging. The food was the best we experienced. Lovely rooms right on the beach. Only reason I can't give Bamboo a 5 star rating is due to... More

Chao SpikeAuckland, The large tanker has finally moved! I can't tell you how many times our team went out on kayaks asking them to move to another location. After weeks of illegally pumping sand just off our shore, the petitioning with the local police actually worked and they have moved somewhere else. :) :) :) ... we've had a few... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Bamboo cottages and restaurant and it was an awesome experience. The rooms were very comfortable and cleaned every day. The interior was in line with the beautiful nature outdoors (including an open roof bathroom). The beach was only a couple of steps from our room and very clean. We used the available kayaks to...

Super relaxing, great food. Ideal of you want to lay around reading and having a swim in a peaceful environment. There is a little bit of construction near by, but where in Asia doesn't have that right now? The staff are gorgeous. Friendly and helpful. The rooms are awesome, I love the no roof bathroom. I booked for two nights... More

Chao Bek S, We're all very pleased you had such a wonderful time with us. We often have guests book only a few nights, as they are unsure if they will like our concept/style, and then extend more if available. Hope to see you come back and visit us soon. Warm regards, Charles and the Bamboo Family More

We were looking for a place to escape the industrial pace of life in Singapore and find a quiet retreat to relax. We should have visited Phu Quoc 5 years ago as the once tranquil, jungle-covered and golden-sand covered paradise is about to disappear under a sea of resort, casino and golf course developments. It is very hard to write... More

Chao Peteofmanytools, I absolutely love your TA name :) Lovely review! Thanks for sharing. The island of Phu Quoc is developing quickly, there is no denying that. We've recently, in the past 3 weeks, have had a few of the barges from the port next door start parking in our bay for the rainy season to avoid the high waves... More

Was looking for a place to chill in a hammock for a few days while reading a book, and Bamboo Cottages was perfect :) I went during the rainy season so it was slightly cooler than usual and I had no trouble sleeping without AC (they do have fans, I didn't use mine though). I wasn't bothered by the noise... More

We stayed at Bamboo Cottages for 5 days. The place is instantly welcoming - from its lovely staff, its puppies and friendly dogs, and the well decorated and unique bungalows. We had the privilege of staying in the Woodhouse, just meters from the sea, with windows that open to the calm sea breeze. While the place is not for everyone... More

PROS : The food was good, the cottage was beautiful and the staff was nice. CONS : The establishment is secluded and it is hot during the night. The island of Phu Quoc is beautiful and ideal for relaxing but it does not offer many activities for the adventurous. We spent 2 full days and it was plenty.

Chao Thomas W, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Besides our eco concept, I think the "thing" we advertise the most here is our distance from the main town. And when coming to a tropical island, isn't it expected to be hot? How could those be cons? They are Pro's to a lot of people I imagine.... More
