The location of the resort is beautiful. No doubt about that. All beach bungalows max 20 m away from the sea. They sell themselves as ecolodge which you can see clearly: no tv, no AC, hot water by sun boiler, no paper serviettes, almost no plastic and no cans. This is great for the environment especially in an asian country where protecting the environment is not yet a real priority.
My remarks are that it is a bit overpriced. Probabely due to to the ecothing. For three meals for 2 persons we paid approx 1,5 millon dong. Our meals were not the most extended. One dish and one drink. In vietnam this amount is enormous for food! The food was very delicious though! We did not do any tours offered in the resort as i rated them far too expensive for vietnam. Eg 30 dollar for a snorkling tour... overall service of personnelwas great. With free transfer to the airport. Hotel property is cleared everyday of litter washing up from the sea. Be aware that there is no AC in rooms and they are completley open. This makes it very humid to sleep. Putting on a ventilator for the night is risky toget a cold and pretty noisy. Tip to the hotel: If you want it really eco and comfortable consider investing in solar power and decent AC in rooms? But maybe not that easy in vietnam as i saw no solar power anywhere? Overall a good resort if you want to be quiet and away from the city rush.
