My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights in mid July and loved every minute... we stayed in bungalow 15, which straddled a small stream and overlooked a field with a few chickens and cows roaming around. The bungalow itself looked like it had just been built and came with a day bed, hammock, outside bathroom and hand made furniture. The first few days we were there the weather was amazing so after a late breakfast we trekked down the sandy path to On Lang Beach (20 minutes), which was beautiful - deserted, fringed by sand dunes and sea pines, and great for splashing around in the very warm surf. In the evenings we were treated to a 5 coarse dinner (with wine and the occasional cocktail) cooked by our host Peter and his very able team of kitchen staff. The food was amazing, alternating between traditional Vietnamese and Phu Quoc specialities, and fusion. I would go as far as to say that it was some of the best food I have ever tasted. On the third day we rented a couple of scooters from a guy located just outside the resort, and rode around the north of the island. This is something I would highly recommend but make sure the bike you hire is working properly as some of the roads can be a little bumpy. For the last 4 days of our holiday it rained so all we did was get up late, watch movies in bed (iPad), play cards, read, chat with the other guests, and walk along the beach with the resort dogs, who like to follow you to the beach.
Overall a great place and somewhere we will definitely be visiting again. Living and working in Saigon, we need somewhere to escape to when city life gets too much. If you are looking for somewhere quiet to relax and unwind and aren't too worried about being right on the beach or near restaurants and shops then this is the place for you...
