Unforgettable from boat transfer off cruise to arrival back in Halong. Food was good. Cabins little basic but charming. Loved the free kayaks you could borrow to explore the little bay. On departure day a typhoon was approaching so they didn't take any chances and arranged alternative route across Cat Bar Island and ferry. Guide stayed with us throughout and... More

We stayed there for two nights as we wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main islands. We arrived on Cat Ba island and had to make our way to the harbour where we could catch a boat to Nam Cat where the resort is located. When we got to the harbour we called the resort... More

This is a picture perfect setting and great for a relaxing day or two. The room is basic and the bathroom in need of refurbishment, but we would return in a heartbeat as the setting is so fabulous. We stayed 3 nights (2 full days) and spent one day lazing about, kayaking and swimming and went of a full day... More

We booked this as part of a 3 day 2 night Ha Long bay tour. The tour itself was great but our stay on the island was disappointing. The location itself is stunning but the problem comes with the the grumpy disinterested staff who don't look too happy to see us. Prices are over inflated, there is only one place... More

We went here as part of a Halong Bay cruise and stayed 1 night. The accomodation is simple, but the place and surroundings are worth a visit. It is truly a paradise island - If not noise polited. The day we stayed there, a large group of people arrived, just to stay for some hours. They played games and were... More

My husband and I found this place very relaxing and nice. We enjoyed the whole experience from swimming and kayaking to just lazing in the shade. It was fun to gather in the common area in the evening to watch the soccer game and visit with newly made friends.

We spent one night here as part of imperial legend cruise. Bungalow itself was fine if a little basic. Aircon and fan turned off between 2am-5am but didn't really matter. Power on the whole can be a bit hit and miss but nothing too bad. Bathroom was fine and clean but a little squashed! Porch light stayed on all night-v... More
