1. Re: Accomodation in Mui Ne

Hi Jackie. First a geography lesson if you dont mind. Mui Ne is advertised as the Resort spot 175km from HCMC. This is correct but very misleading. Mui Ne is a ward of Phan Thiet city as is Ham Tien. Ham Tien is by far the largest Resort area and covers the coastline between Phu Hai and Mui Ne, the village.

Mui Ne does have some very good Resorts but the greatest selection is in Ham Tien.

80% of the Resorts in Ham Tien are actual beachfront and range in cost per room from $15 to $150 and upwards. As you are families, a Resort with a Pool I would imagine is high on your list of requirements and this provided you are budgeting around $100 per night, would give you many great places like Coco Beach, or Pandanus in Mui Ne.

If Pool is not high in your mind then some of the smaller Resorts like Hiep Hoa at $25, Suoi Tien at $30, or Mui Ne Backpackers (in Ham Tien ) at $30 may suit.

Mui Ne is a very laidback style of location with great Restaurants all along the beachfront strip and some nice night spots like Joes as well. Mui Ne is blessed with good weather all year with the lowest rainfall records in VN.

Nha Trang is another spot further north but is just like Surfers. Any further north is chancey weatherwise at that time of year. Phu Quoc is another worth looking at.

Happy researching !!

Cheers Ross

You can try Sea Winds Resort, situated centrally in Mui Ne, and just a few minutes walk from the beach, nice garden for children and a good room for 2 adult a 1 child about $20.

Cheers

Tom, Please be more specific about your locations or you confuse the writers to this forum. Both Ross and I are doing our best to properly educate writers about the correct locations, as calling everything Mui Ne just confuses everyone. Sea Winds Resort is not in Mui Ne, but in Ham Tien.

Dear Jacki ,

Wish you and your family a good time in Mui-ne or Ham Tien .

Suoi Nuoc Beach located in Mui-ne ward is an area worth visiting .

The beach is wide and sandy , the clear blue sea is during May - October calm and warm.

The area is not ruined by Russian neon signs and other touristic attractions.

Full Moon Village is one of the resorts located at the Suoi Nuoc Beach.

Its easy accessible by using local bus number 1.

Enjoy

@steve

Thanks for your advice.

It’s true you know well about Ham Tien and Mui Ne. I also know that Phu Hai => Da Ong Dia <= Ham Tien => Cay Dua Mot <= Mui Ne.

The truth that only local people can define clearly that and most of tourists just simple say Mui Ne for all Phu Hai, Ham Tien and Mui Ne.

If someone books a room at Sea Link Hotel (in Phu Hai) then he can say that he comes to enjoy Mui Ne. Tourists stay at Saigon Muine or Seahorse Resort (in Ham Tien) and enjoy the beach then they can say: “Mui Ne beach is nice” instead of “Ham Tien”. And if someone search a hotel “in Mui Ne, Vietnam” online (booking.com or agoda.com), they would have many hotel from Mui Ne, Ham Tien and Phu Hai.

Most of tourists have no idea about Phu Hai or Ham Tien and I think it is not necessary to make them confused about Mui Ne, Ham Tien or Phu Hai.

Sorry if this isn't satisfied.

@Jacki

Ham Tien (considered Mui Ne by tourists) is called “Vietnam Resort capital” and the tourist center. All of the best resort (such as Saigon Muine, Anatara, Swiss Village, Seahorse, etc), guest houses and services are here.

You travel with kids so it’s better to choose a resort in Ham Tien.

Tom,

Your assertion would be correct if every resort and restaurant posted their addresses as Mui Ne. However, 2/3rds of them post their correct addresses right next to establishments that incorrectly put the name Mui Ne in their addresses for marketing purposes. This confuses everyone. Your suggestion that not using the name Mui Ne for places that are not in Mui Ne confuses people is totally wrong. If people like you who are familiar with the area truly make an effort to educate tourists about the correct locations of their resorts, fewer visitors would be 'confused'.

Hi. Can somebody help me (73 years old and going senile, unfortunately!) My husband and I will be coming from Dalat by bus. Does the bus travel along the entire stretch of Nguyen Dinh Chieu before proceeding to Phan Thiet or is the bus terminus in the more touristy area of Mui Ne?

Are inexpensive (backpacker type) tours available to go to the sand dunes, Mui Ne village etc from both central Phan Thiet and the Ham Thien/Phu Hai area? Or is public transport available?

We will be there in mid September for about three nights. We would prefer accommodation in a mostly "local" area i.e not too buzzing with Europeans. Which would be the best area for us to look for accommodation in?

Thank you!

Yes the bus will drop you at your hotel and will not go to Phan Thiet.

The small public bus every 20 minutes until 6pm will take you to the red dune.

Ozzie I'm 73 1/2 , and go regularly to Ham Tien ( it's where everyone goes to when they say Mui Ne ) Having said that Mui Ne is a separate ward of Phan Thiet and there are some good resorts there like Pandanus although they may be too large.

Have a look at Hiep Hoa where I go. Its a small family run resort right in the middle of everything and usually costs around $18 for a beachfront room. Beachfront if the sand is back after a storm lashing, but good at low tide.

Cheers Ross
