What Our Clients Say

Thank to the customer service of the Whale Island Resort! In these difficult Covid times where it´s not sure if you can travel because of restrictions or not – they communicated to find the best solution as we couldn´t come to the restr as planned !


Meersburg, Germany

It is a beautiful island with crystal clear water and soft white sand beach… Good delicious local Vietnamese foods, no menu to choose but you can ask what you would like in advance … sea foods beautiful and fresh.Staff are friendly and nice … can do with more hospitality training then would be superb.


Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

I like almost everything, including crystal-clear-water-white-sand beach just in front of my cottage, our cheerful drinks under a starry sky at mid-night, or the little dramatic adventure in the jungle. I really recommend this place, I will be back.


Hanoi, Vietnam

Our family loved Whale island. Yes it takes a while to get there but it’s so peaceful and beautiful it’s well worth the trip. It’s basically about 12 bungalows right by the shore of a lovely little protected bay which you access by a 10 minute boat ride. The water is clear and inviting and there’s a small house reef to explore in the bay.


Cannes, France

After reading all the reviews on tripadvisor about not to kindly staff we’re doubting if we should visit this place. But we’re happy we did! The place is beautiful, clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is delicious. We can recommend this place to anyone.


We loved it. The bungalows are rustic which suited us perfectly and the beach stroll to the restaurant is lovely (as is the beach). We went there to go snorkelling which was good but the real surprise was the quality of the food at all 3 meals – absolutely lovely.
