We stayed here for four nights and are sad to leave. Our stay has been a peaceful retreat into the mountains of Cat Ba island in the midst of our 3 week honeymoon in Northern Vietnam. We stayed in a private bungalow ($28/night) with air conditioning, a private bathroom, and plenty of hot water. Super comfortable for two people. We... More

This place is great! We stayed 3 full days and had a blast. Neither of us were looking to pack our days full but rather to lounge with a bit of activity here and there. You can definitely fill your days with activities if you'd like but you'll probably need to leave the immediate area, via the harbor, for anything... More

My partner and I booked online before leaving for Vietnam. We looked at some pictures and we thought it looked lovely. When we arrived there after a nice 5km bike ride through untouched jungle, we were very disappointed as the bungalow wasn't as nice as we thought. It was very small, dark and basic. Also, we asked where was the... More

If you're wanting to chill out with basically no other people, great, visit here. It's amongst the very small Viet Hai village. but it can get quite boring if you don't like hiking or bike riding. There's no nearby beach, just the harbour which is a 5km bicycle ride from the Viet Hai village, which is pretty nonetheless. (You can... More

We are a film crew for Brazilian TV and we were looking for a place to stay. What a surprise to find a very reasonable priced bungalow in a very friendly community. The family staff was very helpful. We were looking for a different point of view of the Vietnamese people. So they contacted a family, hired a boat and... More

If you don't want to stay in a big hotel or lock you in in a resort, but rather stay in a small village surrounded by jungle and nature... this is the place. This small eco-hostel is run by a very friendly couple who will arrange anything for you: from a guide to take you hiking in the jungle, to... More

This is a very beautiful location. Quiet and close to nature. The village is interesting to cycle around and the bungalows basic. We loved the food but the bedding was damp and uncomfortable because of the damp humidity which isn't pleasant when trying to sleep.We live in a humid place and recommend dehumidifiers as they would dry everything out. Lovely... More

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A short walk from the sea leads to Viet Hai Village, a new APT Travel community tour development. The comfortable bungalows are located under one of the steep mountainsides of the island’s National Park Reserve. There are seven single private bungalows, a large bungalow for groups of people to share and a triangular bungalow where a bar is located with food, drink and wine. Next to the bar is an open space with some tables for you to relax, drink amongst the trees and stones of the untouched natural setting, beside a very clean stream. A movable stage can be provided for music and song. ... more   less
