Our stay in Bamboo Cottages was in one word brilliant. As close to paradise as you can get. The staff at both front desk and restaurant are extremely friendly and helpful and will, without hesitation go the extra mile for you. Many daily activities are complimentary such as a lesson in Vietnamese language, yoga and movie nights. The food is... More

We stayed here for three days/two nights as part of a country tour. It's a great little out of the way spot that is very eco-friendly (one of the reasons we chose it) and has beautiful views and one of the best staffs (Vounz, Chef Long) I've ever encountered. We got the opportunity to stay in a Wood House one... More

I really liked this place, especially the concept its built on. A lot of places call themselves "eco," but too often it's a marketing ploy without real substance. Not this place. It's entirely solar powered and is working on capturing enough water to supply needs. Instead of supplying you with plastic bottles of water everyday, they filter water and refill... More

The atmosphere at this little resort is great and relaxing. The staff is very nice, some are learning English, and if you're up to it you they stop by for a talk to practice their English.

We stayed for 5 nights for some much needed relaxation. Good food, friendly but not intrusive staff. Free kayaks and snorkeling equipment so you can enjoy the coral reef on a small island just a short distance away.

Beautifully placed Bamboo Cottages has it all. Great staff, a very good chef, a nice beach, beautiful bungalows. We loved it and felt sorry we first tried two different resorts around the island. Everyone was very helpful and patient with our one year old son too. All in all a very relaxing place. Loved it!
