Lang Ca Voi (The Whales Village) Guesthouse
Ranked #20 of 126 Phan Thiet B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

I booked Lang Ca Voi (The Whales Village) before travelling to Vietnam as despite not many reviews, the place looked quirky and just what I was looking for. Upon arrival I was gobsmacked at just how perfect these bungalows were and instantly wanted to stay longer than the 3 nights we had planned. Built over two floors the bungalows are of high standard with living quarters downstairs and kitchen and chill out area upstairs complete with lazy swing and comfy chairs and area to lay down should you require a little afternoon nap - absolute bliss. The room is very large consisting of a double bed (little on the hard side but that seems to be the norm in Vietnam) complete with mosquito net, mini bar fridge (there is another upstairs without mini bar), LCD TV with digital channels, rain shower, two sinks, jacuzzi bath (FAB) - the bathroom is just amazing. The gardens are gorgeous and maintained daily and the pool of good size and in the shape of a whale hence the name. The staff members were very accommodating and delivered breakfast upstairs so it was there when we got up - bread rolls, jams, fresh juice and fresh coffee all available. We hired a scooter for $10 for the day direct with the staff members which was a good price and ideal since the accommodation is a good 40 minute walk to the 'main' area so the moped came in very handy. The moped key was sitting on the breakfast tray the next morning awaiting us :) Location wise it is towards the bottom of the strip nearer Mui Ne town but there were plenty places to eat nearby which many choices and you were next door to the market selling fresh fruit, fish etc. The accommodation backed onto the beach amidst local houses etc and if you venture down to the beach you get amazing views of the sunset....(we went down one night and a couple of locals handed us two beers to sit and watch an amazing sunset which was very kind of them). If you are looking to just chill out and stay somewhere that in my opinion is easily 4 star then this is just perfect - I already want to go back !!!

This hotel has the best service I have ever experienced. It's not so expensive - but the staff is very well trained on being attentive to their guests. They think of everything you need. Rooms were clean and comfortable. I'm spoiled forevermore by the service, staff and setting. I highly recommend this place, good value for your money and worth the experience!

I stayed at the whales village for a couple of night and had an amazing time. Beautiful bungalows and great facilities. The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly whilst I was there. Very clean and quiet. The bungalows are surrounded by a lovely tropical garden, I also loved the whale shaped swimming pool !! Good location, across the road Mui Ne beach and walking distance from the main road, market and many restaurants. I wish to have stayed longer. Excellent all round !!

The Whales Village offers nice rooms, amazing bathroom, a private terrace with sea-view and a funny swimming-pool with the shape of the whale.

On top of the comfort of the place itself, it is one of the rare place which also allow you to "live" in Vietnam. The guesthouse is located near to the market of Ham Tien where you will be able to do your groceries. Back to the guesthouse, you can cook your meals on your private outdoor kitchen. If you are lazy to cook, you will be able to experience the true tasty Vietnamese food a few steps away in local restaurants.

A nice way to be in Vietnam during your holidays feeling like a tourist in your hotel and like a local when stepping out ...

The owner Hai Van was very helpful and keeps her guesthouse in tip top condition. The bungalows are beautiful. Food is not served here but can be found easily within 100m along the main road. Taxi to the city centre costs about 3USD or you can opt to take a long walk. Other than its distance from the city centre, this is a fantastic place to live in.
