We just spent a relaxing 3 days at Shades Resort after doing some business in HCMC. The room was far better than we expected. A clean spacious room with a small but perfectly adequate kitchenette, very comfy bed , balcony and free wi fi . The staff were friendly, spoke quite good English and were happy to arrange tours, bookings. They even arrange to hire motor bikes for us. Breakfast was good tho not extensive. Eggs, cereal, toast, fruit . Shades is ideally located, it's right on the beach and within walking distance to restaurants. There is a bar , yea!!!!!!!, and happy hour starts early and finishes late. We had a great night with the other guests drinking beers and the girls hit the cocktails. This is a small boutique resort with around 10 rooms . We loved it. If you are travelling from HCMC definitely take the train (approx $12) air conditioned and comfortable trip.

I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of my trip to Vietnam, as i wanted a few days to chill out before i went home, and i couldn't have chosen a better place to do this. I stayed in a sea-facing apartment, which was lovely, spacious, and even included a Jacuzzi bath. The views from the resort were great, and you could literally walk down some steps and be on the beach. There was a free laundry service which was a fab bonus. The breakfast was nice. The staff were so friendly and helpful; they helped me to organise a trip to the sand dunes, and collected my train ticket back to HCM. There was a very friendly atmosphere at the resort, and even though i was travelling alone, I spent the evenings chatting with the other guests (there's happy hour at the bar and everyone is encouraged to join in). I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Mui Ne!!!

Hello to you and thank you for your beautiful review. It was truly wonderful to have met you and I think I can honestly say you are our first guest who booked the 4am tour to the fishing village and sun rise and made it awake in time to go!!

Keep us up to date with your travels and hope to see you again some day soon.

The room was lovely (so clean!) and next to their patio area complete with seating, a bar, and a pool. You walk down a few steps and the beach is right there, almost lapping up onto the stairs (it was the end of July-beginning of August when I was there). All I was looking for was a place to relax, and with the beach chairs, the water a few steps away, a bar next to me to order smoothies, and restaurants within walking distance, it was just what I was looking for. There's also DVDs and a complimentary breakfast that was yummy and filling (fresh-made eggs, cereal, bread, etc., and good coffee and tea). It was a simple place, consisting just of what I wrote above, but with everything done very well and with everything I'd need. I loved it!

Great, relaxing hotel with very pleasant ambiance. Stayed in the pent house after a free upgrade (thank you for this!!). Unbelievable views out onto the sea, lovely furnishings, great breakfast and fast and efficient free laundry service. Made our trip to Mui Ne pretty idyllic!

We stayed at shades for 4 nights. What wonderful service we received from Linda and Scotty and her extremely well trained staff. We never wanted for anything as they were always attentative to our needs and certainly provided a point of difference from the other hotel we stayed in at Muine.
Linda's team made afternoon cocktails at the bar more than a social event with many good memories to take home. It was nice to have staff who were well versed with their English and customer service. We did not find,this anywhere else in our stay in muine.
What a breath of fresh air it was for us to have such clean and fabulous resort.
Linda went out of her way to help us out of a sticky situation when we needed someone to interpret for us. She also provided us with a fabulous guided tour of the town and recommend us to go visit the local dentist for teeth whitening at a good price.
Thank you Linda and your wonderful team!
We recommend this to anyone looking for a wonderful resort!

Room Tip: Penthouse is great
