“3 nights at the perfect relaxing retreat”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

We travelled from HCMC on the SE6 train and then took a taxi from Binh Thuan station in the middle of the dragon fruit fields (475k VND on meter) and arrived at lunchtime and were able to check in to our villa straight away. Straight from arrival, Cham Villas is a place that immediately relaxes you, set in a beautiful, tropical garden off the road and main strip that runs between Phan Thiet and Mui Ne. We stayed in a garden villa (#2) two rows back from the beach, close to the beautiful pool and restaurant. The private beach area was very well looked after and offered shade and sun on loungers that were as heavy as small cars! We loved the variety of breads and pastries, fresh mango and dragonfruit, birchermuesli and Vietnamese noodle broths all available at breakfast. Now we're back in Hong Kong we'll miss that great start to the day. We also had lunch and cocktails at the beach bar as well as dinner with friends and in each case the service was fantastic.
This is the best hotel we've stayed at in two trips in Vietnam.

We spent 4 nights at Cham Villas at the end of June 2013. My wifes Birthday so we decided to spend more than we normally would on accomodation, we were not sorry we did. We travelled with our 2 kids so took 2 garden view villas. The Villas are spacious enough to add extra beds, if you wanted to reduce the costs, but we wanted to peace and space of having separate rooms. So the villas them sleves are spacious and very cimfortable. Kingsize 4 poster beds, comfortable pillows and nice linen. The phots you find of the villas do not do them justice. Bathrooms is huge and private garden view from the bath. Daybed on each verandah. Garden setting is beautiful an villas are private. The room is cleaned twice a day and the beds are turned down each night. They supply fresh towels morning and night. The resort seems quiet due to the way the villas are set out and that they have left a lot of space for the gardens. There are only 18 villas in the entire resort. Others staying there were a mix of Vietnamese, couples and others with kids. Always spare chairs at Breakfast, around the pool and on the beach, no dramas getting somewhere to soend time. The kids loved the pool, again pictures of the pool do not do justice to how nice the area is. Pool side restuarant served the best food we had on our entire trip thru Vietnam. The included breakfast gave lots of variation. The restuarant staff were engaging and helpful, helping us to learn some Vietnamese. Nothing was too much trouble. The beach is very clean, in my opinion the best stretch in all of Phan Thiet. Resort organised onward train tickets last minute for us for a very small fee. Convenince shop and ATM right outside as were other restaurants, travel agents etc. We didn't want to leave. So very happy to have stayed at this resort, if only i have the chance again!!!

Room Tip: Any room is great, dont stress about that. The beachfront rooms are nice but do not have the same b...

Mui Ne has a busy tourist strip with the fishing village and living part of town just a bit down the coast. It's a nice relaxing place to go if you want to spend a few days away from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh like us. Hotels line the beach and just walking past we could tell our stay wouldn't have been nearly as enjoyable if we hadn't stayed at Cham Villas. The villas are big enough for you to spread out and there are so few that you don't have to fight for a place by the pool or to sit down at breakfast. The staff were extremely helpful for us too. They sorted us out a Vietnamese sim card and translated all of the texts so we could top up. They also run tours to a few surrounding spots that you go to by jeep. The tours are with only a few others, you're taken by a local who works at the hotel, you aren't rushed and can spend a couple of hours exploring the different spots. The restaurant is also amazing. More expensive than most meals you'll get in Asia but still about half the price it would be anywhere else. They specialise in seafood dishes but everything they served us across the 3 days was delicious (and they make a very strong cocktail too). There's an outdoor pool table and a spa on site as well as a beach bar. I cannot recommend the hotel enough!

We had a wonderful stay at Cham Villas and would recommend as the perfect getaway. We wanted a change of pace from busy Hong Kong and we could not ask for more. We stayed in a beachfront villa and it was worth it. We ended up spending a lot of time on the front porch, ordering meals and drinks and enjoying the constant breeze. The beachside services, in-room dining, and the German restaurant were all delicious. Everything was cooked to perfection and there was such a large menu that we didn’t even leave the resort for a meal. The sea bass and lobster ravioli were particularly delightful! The average meal was approx.. ($10 USD). We were celebrating our anniversary and arrange a private beach dinner. The service was impeccable and the fresh seafood exceeded our expectation (all for approx.. $80 USD without drinks).

We took advantage of the tour in the 1962 Jeep (for 2 people cost was approx.. $70 USD). It was worth it and I would recommend going first thing in the morning due to the heat. The white sand dunes were most impressive. When you get to the sand dunes, it is very hot and there will be ATV's to rent for $30 USD for 30 min. We were not expecting this, but it was very hot and we would not have been able to see as much of the area if we didn't use the ATV. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Cham Villas and the local Mui Ne attractions!

This hotel one of the best where we have ever been. The service is excellent because it is very small hotel and the number of staff ideal for vacationers. The only downside is that the staff does not speak English perfectly and once they made ​​a mistake with cocktails after order via phone. But all cocktails very tasty so you will not be disappointed anyway :)
Swimming pool is perfect. The beach - one of the best on the coast.
Food from the hotel restaurant is excellent, they got German and Vietnamese dishes. We tried 2-3 times food in outside restaurants and it was awful. The only marine food eatable outside.
Spa quite good in the hotel, but you can find cheaper with similar service outside ;)
Also this hotel won "customer retention" award because my gf liked the picture in our room and hotel sold it for us.
The vacation was excellent, thanks Cham Villas.

A small high quality resort that has consistently retained high standards and a genuine sense of tranquility whilst the tourist explosion has taken place in the rest of Mui Ne.

As with all places, it is the people that make any place special. The staff here, whether gardeners, guards, maids, spa assistants, restaurant staff or managers, all work tirelessly to impart a genuine sense of care and welcome.

Rooms are well furnished and comfortable. Constant attention ensures that they are impeccably clean and that all amenities work well.

The restaurants offer an extensive variety of both Vietnamese and International cuisine that is prepared and presented to a world class standard.

As expatriate residents in Vietnam and based in Ho Chi Minh City we are a couple who are privileged to travel extensively in the region and to be able to stay wherever we choose. We find ourselves constantly returning to Cham Villas because of the truly excellent service and warmth of welcome we receive. It is an oasis of bliss and has become something of a home away from home.
