“Great resort for a laid back experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2008

There are definitely better bargains on Phu Quoc than Cassia (we paid $85 per night), but we extended our stay from 4 to 6 days because we liked this resort so much. This is not a place to stay if you're looking for a five star, pampered experience. But if you have a sense of adventure and want a quiet place where you can just relax, this place is ideal. The staff are incredibly friendly and the rooms are spartan, but comfortable (all rooms have fridges, showers, etc.). The food at Cassia isn't the greatest, but breakfast is complimentary, other meals are cheap and there are a variety of other good restaurants just a short walk down the beach (we recommend Le Deauville).

Best thing we did was to rent scooters and tour the island. You can get set up for a half day rental for about $5. But I'd skip the squid fishing tour. We spoke to others who said it really wasn't worth it.

The beach is beautiful, but be aware that the fishing boats still throw some of their garbage overboard, so you may see the odd package floating in the water. But don't let that dissuade you, it's a lovely island.

As promised here’s a few more thoughts on Cassia. First thing don’t rely on the web site…the place is a lot better. Have spoke to ‘Kiwi Jim’ the manager about this and he agrees. Talking of Jim, this guy is a real professional who will go out of his way to spend the time of day with you. He’s full of useful information and nothing is too much of a hassle. He has trained his staff to a high standard of service worthy of a five star hotel without the high price tag. Fortunately Cassia is nothing like an expensive five star establishment, with no over fancy foyers or ridiculously over priced mini bars. Instead you can luxuriate in the fact that with only 18 competitively priced rooms (that are all occupied at the time of writing) this place never feels busy and there seems like a one to one staff to guest ratio. Top points go for a lovely infinity pool, manicured gardens and well presented rooms. We are fortunate enough to be staying with another couple in the largest of the stunning two bedroom villas. There are two of these, complete with relaxing, well-furnished lounge, bar and cool terracotta flooring. Ask for Villa 3 that has expansive outside living areas with ocean views. There are different sized rooms in the main pool-fronting house and some nice garden rooms that are slightly cheaper.

Finally the beach outside Cassia is well kept and all the sun loungers are new and very comfortable. Nothing compares and this place deserves its current number one ranking on this site.

We came to cassia cottage through tripadvisor- and we were so lucky to get an garden view cottage altough we only reserved 2 days in advance. for our last night MAi didn`t have a room free for us, but she was so kind to organise a pavillion direktly on the beach at the neighbours. Cassia cottage offered us to use their infrastrukture for that time! we also rented a moto, which was perfekt to get around on the island. we really enjoyed the relaxed an very,very friendly athmosphere! Mai was helpfull in any case - she maneged everything perfektly!
