A truly beautiful setting, a while to get to but the company does everything imaginable to get you there smoothly. Guests of all budgets make the trip and, aside from the seaview huts, the others seem very small and there are even hostel-style shared rooms up on the ridge.....perhaps there'd be less beer cans strewn around at some truly beautiful...

This is by far one of my top vacation experience. The resort is very secluded (perfect for romantic getaways). There is a boat that'll take you back and forth from Beo Barbour. The staff is very nice and friendly. Food is excellent as well. We took the sea view room and the view of sea lying down on the sun...

We stayed for one night in a sea view beach bungalow. The bungalow was spacious and air conditioned. Pool table and table tennis available for free in reception and food was brilliant. A BBQ was cooked for our evening meal with plenty of freshly caught seafood.

My boyfriend and I went on a 3 day 2 night cruise late November 2016, its a little more colder around this time of year. They actually canceled a cruise right before ours and also the one after because a storm was rolling in, so you can say we were pretty lucky! Loved that they pick you & drop you...

I will start by saying this, it is by no means perfect luxury accommodation. Stuff is dated and often broken or as with most places in Vietnam, repairs have all been botched and done pretty shoddily, so if this sort of stuff bothers you and you are looking for western level luxury and service, you will leave disappointed. As it...
