MerPerle Hon Tam Resort

Reviewed 2 January 2013

We booked this resort so far thought Agoda -about 330 days before depart for get early booking discout about 20%.
Take a express boat about 15 minutes will go there. It has a private beach, On day a lot of boat shedule round trip depart from island to port and back from 6 a.m. They got all staff's training from Best Western group. Only thing made we disapointed was they checked in so slowly because we arrived at around 8.30 a.m but we can not get a room unstill 2 p.m.
On islands has a lot of coconut trees and so beautifull beach. We love their beach very much.
We stayed in 2105 room with the best Nha Trang bay view. It located on 2 floor - the bungalow with higher than 1 floor. With a large bathroom outside bungalow which make you feel that take a bath in garden.
We love Hon Tam resort so much and will come back again.

Room Tip: Get a room number from 12...is a foor 2 with the best Nha Trang bay view.

The reviews suggested that Hon Tam needed to work on their service and they have. We could not have asked for a more attentive team to ensure that our elopment exceeded our expectations in every way. We were put in a bungalow at the top of the mountain, the bed and bath filled with fresh red roses and petals. The view was stunning, the bungalow tasteful and the beach and gardens as beautiful as any Caribbean island. The resort is easily accessible from the mainland and is so quiet – it’s like staying on your own private island.

We would like to say a special thank you to Tommy, the food and beverage manager at Hon Tam for making our wedding more beautiful than we ever imagined. Tommy went above and beyond what we could ever expect of a resort staff member, and worked tirelessly to make everything perfect. Tommy, who has trained in Australia and understands western weddings completely, started 4 months ago – so I can assure you that the service at Hon Tam has improved remarkably from when many of these reviews were written.

It’s the little things that make a wedding special. For example, as soon as Tommy realized my love of tropical flowers and palm leaves, they started appearing everywhere – his team stripped the wedding arch of the normal fake flowers and created the all-natural tropical arch featured in the photo. The golf buggy that appeared at my door to take me to the ceremony was decorated with my favorite flowers, as was the table at our romantic private dinner on the beach.

I have honestly never felt more spoilt or looked after. If you are planning a wedding in Nha Trang I highly recommend contacting Tommy directly! Nguyen Phuoc Tung (Tommy) can be contacted at nguyentung227@gmail.com

We have given the resort an excellent rating but we recognise some shortfalls. We used a relatively low amount of RCI points for a weeks stay and we celebrated our wedding anniversary whilst at the resort. When the staff found out they did went out of their way to provide us with a most memorable stay. Our private dinner on the beach was the highlight of an amazing 5 week tour of SE Asia. It was a little expensive but worth every penny. We discussed our menu choices with the Executive Chef 2 days before and he and the restaurant staff delivered everything flawlessly. The views from the bungalows across the Nha Trang bay were incredible. The sandy beach was wonderful as was the swimming pool which we often had to ourselves as it was clearly out of season. We certainly had no problems at all with our bungalow or any of the facilities or amenities.

Here are the negatives; some of the staff in the restaurant need to improve their English if the resort wants to cater to a wider clientele and they need to improve the menu choices particularly for lunch and dinner. It is true that after a few days folks would use the boat transfer provided to access a much wider choice on the mainland. The last boat transfer time of 11pm would be difficult for guests who want to stay later to enjoy Nha Trangs nightlife.

But for us the facilities and value for money which was exceptional in RCI exchange points terms mean that we give the resort the highest marks. We understand that the resort is going through a Best Western rebranding, and we saw quite a lot of new furnishings being delivered and installed during our stay. Whilst this resort may not be for everyone it was perfect for us to enjoy a week of r and r!

Tickets available from the Hon Tam office at Nha Trang port. Cost is 350.000 dong per person which includes fast speed boat to the island,use of the pools, snorkle equipment, kayaks showers etc and a Vietnamese lunch. Ice tea was free with lunch or Heiniken cans were 35.000 dong each. Motor bike parking is free at the port or you can catch the bus to VinPearl resort and get off at the port,the second last stop.Bus is 3000 dong from Nha Trang.

Pools and beach are great, nice and clean, lockers are available no charge.Landscaping is very good and there is a large kids pool area too.

Will return, is such a relaxing time away from the bustle.

Pretty hotel, with large bungalows, clean bathrooms (no hot water).
As we stayed in Hon Tam new staff was being trained. This might help improving the all over service. Dishes standing in front of bungalows, new never washed towels in the bathroom etc.
As you can not leave the island very easily you have to have your meals at the restaurant. We stayed only three days, I can immagine if staying longer you get bored with the menu, the beach and the island. The service in the restaurant needs to improve.
We would not return here, the wow factor is just not big enough to be so locked up on an island.

A lovely resort, large rooms with clean bathrooms and great views from the adjoining terraces, large and inviting pool, garden and beach. The restaurant is a pleasant open area but the quality of the food is quite average. In a country with such great cuisine this is a little surprising but no matter, there is a regular and fast speedboat shuttle to Nha Trang which is packed full of great restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

My friends and I was here last month. We didn't stay at the resort, but we spent half a day experiencing most of the services here. The beach is gorgeous. It's so clean that I can see everything in water. The pool is great as well. Especially, the changing rooms are very nice and you don't have to pay to get the key as many other place. We just want to take picture everywhere because of the perfection of the island. Furthermore, there're many kinds of water sport for you at the beach. Although price is rather high, but it's ok for a good experience.
I'm in love with the scenery of this island. I wish I could be back here for my honeymoon.
