“Glenn McVeigh takes weight off our shoulders”
Reviewed 1 September 2007

Interested in Vietnam but unsure how to go about it. I have the answers for you. It all started with Jetstar's Birthday Sale in May 2007. Three ladies booked to go to Ho Chi Ming City on 24th July 2007. Then the headaches & planning started. Many emails & weeks later - nothing. Then I made contact with Glenn McVeigh, White Sands Resort, Mui Ne. The answer to all our prayers. An Aussie Manager who has lived & worked in Vietnam for the last 10 years & YES he speaks fluent Vietnamese. Suddenly everything fell into place. We arranged with Glenn to be picked up at the airport & driven straight to White Sands Resort a 3 or 4 hour drive away. This was a very smart move as it avoided all the hassles of arriving in a foreign country & being mobbed. Phan, who has a Doctorate in Computers became our personal driver. White Sands Mui Ne next stop. What a delight to find a piece of paradies in the middle of Vietnam. Mr Houng was up in the middle of the night to welcome us. White Sand lived up to every expectation & much, much more. From the ocean views, swimming pool, steam room, sauna, jacuzzi, massage & fitness centre - what more could one ask for.
The biggest decisions we had to make were 'what shall we eat or drink today'. A week later time to move on again. This is where Glenn came into his own. A wealth of information on Vietnam. We all sat down together & discussed our travel arrangements. Who needs to pay a travel agent for advice when Glenn is freely available. Course plotted, & Glenn is on the phone booking hotel accomodation, airline tickets, Phan our private driver we had another 8 days & it is all GO. Glenn even arranged in Hanoi for an old friend Viet to be our personal guide.
This really was doing Vietnam the lazy, easy way. I cannot recommend Glenn McVeigh & White Sands Resort highly enough. It was a sad day when we left Glenn & White Sands. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. We have all agreeded White Sands Resort will be our 'Getaway from Tasmania's Winter' July & August of each year. Hope to see you all there!

Regards, Eunice Lee

Arrived at the White Sands Resort to be greeted by Glenn the Aussie manager and some very friendly staff. Our check in was very quick which was great as we were tired and hot.

Great resort with everything you could wish for. Very peacefull as the resort is secluded and has a beautiful beach.

The pool and spa was fantasic with views to the beach. The restaurant overlooking the ocean had a mediteranian feel and the food was delicious.

The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble.

The resort manager was there to help recommend places to visit and tips for catching buses and restaurants around town.

Only a few minutes into the township of Mue Ne, which is a busy little fishing town.

Would recommend this resort to anyone and our group of 11 were very sad to leave and will definately be back again!!
