Whisper of Nature Bungalow at Cat Ba seems like an eternity ago. This place is my idea of a wildlife retreat, the virtues of Halong bay without the tourists. We visited in winter rather than when most would go in summer, a perfect playground, perfect weather for hiking and exploring. Part of the fun for us was getting there, a... More

We stayed for five nights and enjoyed the secluded bungalows, the grounds and the staff on the edge of Viet ha Village. It was a 40 minute boat ride from Cat Ba Town and then a six kilometre bike ride to Whisper Nature Bungalows. Once there we settled into the quietness, trekking to Frog Lake, the top of the nearest... More

The eco-lodge is a charming collection of bungalows set around a small brook, with kitchen gardens scattered around the grounds to provide vegetables for the restaurant. It is part of the Viet Hai village community effort to move beyond subsistence farming and provide lodging in an idyllic site. The meals were first-class and innovative, rather amazing in the back of... More

We visited Whisper nature & resort bungalows for 3 days. It's located next to a beautiful jungle which you can go in without a tour guide. At the top there's a great view over Halong Bay. The rooms are clean, with airconditioning and a clamboo. The staff takes care of a great breakfast and dinner. We have eaten the best... More

We stayed here for a couple of days with our children and were amazed by the beauty of this hidden village. Both the boat ride and the path to the village were spectacular. The bungalowpark is located in paradise and kayaking to small private beaches in the neigbouring waters in a stunning environment was a great experience. The couple who... More

An amazing 6km ride through jungle and we landed at the beautiful little bungalows on a fresh water creek. The kids loved the adventure, the hosts were lovely and food amazing. Surrounded by rice fields, a tiny village and friendly local kids. We loved our stay here, it was definately a highlight of our trip. We only stayed for one... More

Located in Viet Hai on Cat Ba Island, this beautiful place is a hidden gem for those adventurers that seek peace, quiet and untouched nature. The owner and his family were extremely helpful and super friendly. My partner and I had initially booked three day trip but extended to four days as we fell in love with the place. The... More

The property itself is well maintained. The rooms are clean but very Spartan and the bathroom is a combo one so there is no stand alone shower. Service was good as it appears the owner lives on site. Understand that this is not a luxury hotel. There are only for bungalows and aside from and and bathroom there is nothing... More

My husband and I sailed on the Whisper in early May. The captain, Jeff was extremely friendly, and knowledgeable of the local wildlife. We sailed all over the bay and were delighted by the information Jeff and friend Jim shared. Weather was perfect, saw dolphins, a ray, and frigate birds amongst other things. The entire experience was, in the words... More

We had a wonderful time at whisper nature bungalow. We stayed for four nights and felt it was the perfect amount of time for us, it was a lovely break from the busyness of Cat Ba Town. The bungalows are small but homely and clean with mosquito nets provided (much needed in our case). The view and location are spectacular,... More
