Catba Island Resort & Spa is situated on one of the largest islands in Halong Bay known as Cat Ba Island. Limestone formations and a huge national park make up most of the island. A great way to spend a day is trekking through the forest, trying to spot the endangered golden headed Cat Ba langur, which is one of the rarest seen primates in Asia. Or spend your days at the resort playing in the water park. Don’t be shy to utilize all the slides and rides, waterfalls, and more. To complete the day, there is also a spa and sauna. Take care of any business at the fully equipped business center and conference rooms. Catba Island Resort & Spa has all that is needed for an unforgettable family holiday.

could be much better if the shower was clean

great view, great location and peaceful
we enjoyed it very much but the shower walls were covered with black mould and it kind of spoiled it for us. but the hotel garden, pool area and beach are really nice, the location is great - away from the noisy center but still in walking distanse. the staff is friendly and willing to help. its a pity that most of them cant speak any english.

Great resort

Location, food, extras
The spa was great. The views were amazing and it's a short walk from centre of town.

Run down hotel
Very disappointing. Hotel is huge and run down. Service at lobby is really bad and unhelpful. Wifi is spotty at best. Pools were not very clean. Food is terrible. Don't stay here- terrible value for money!!!

Nice location; lovely pools

Location; pools
Lovely location and nice pools. Hard bed; breakfast so so; leaky bathroom and running toilet. Asked for regular tea twice but did not get any.... Would not go back again for that amount of money

Quiet resort in Cat Ba

Big well maintained compound, great ocean view and surrounded by lushgreen forest.
Check-in handed by the manager was smooth & was instructed to leave my passport with them. Passport was collected back when checked out. Used this resort as the base to visit the famous Halong Bay and found it very quiet with only few other guests during our 2 nights stay in the beginning of April '15, maybe still the low season. Stayed at superior ocean view room no 2311 with a small balcony. It has 2 pools where we didn’t see anyone using the pools while we were there. Like the well maintained big compound in this resort. Found the free wifi weak & intermittent from our room. Room is clean & daily housekeeping was done. There is a public foot path passing through the front of this resort which goes around the edge of the cliff where it’s link to Catba Sunrise Resort. Walking along this foot path offers beautiful scenery limestone rock structures near to the coastline. Breakfast served at the restaurant located at the same building as the reception hall, on the lower floor. Foods & drinks choices for breakfast are just adequate. Had dinner on 1st night at the same restaurant & menu has varieties of choices but found some of the items in the menu not available, maybe low season. Foods we ordered came in big serving but nothing to shout about. The resort is within walking distance from centre of Cat Ba town, took about 15 minutes. Walking to town is easier as it is walking downhill from the resort entrance. After checking out they offered us the hotel free shuttle mini bus to town which we really appreciated. Overall resort is good for travellers who like privacy & quiet atmosphere since found it very quiet in a secluded area. Also good for travellers with kids as there are 2 swimming pools, a mini water park with water slides & some game facilities. Choosing a base to explore or visit Halong bay would be better with one of the hotels at the town as there are many foods, drinks & shop outlet in town without the need to walk further distance.

Off-season in Cat Ba

The ocean view is incredible. Grounds are lovely and staff are friendly.
We stayed in low season so we didn't get to take advantage of all the hotel had to offer. It is in a beautiful location. The rooms are a little outdated and the breakfast was so so. Overall however the room was comfy and we enjoyed the view.

This place might be fun if it wasn't the off seaso

Much on the amenities were exciting, but on closer inspection, everything was run down. Avoid the sauna at all costs. There are splinters everywhere.
This place was very expensive compared to other near by hotels. There isn't much additional value staying here either. Additionally the desk cleark was quoting prices for tours and motorbike rentals that were three to four times the going rate anywhere else.

Beautiful place, great staff.

the room was large with a great view, the polls were nice and well taken care of, the location is close enough to the town to walk but in a secluded area.
We were there in the low season, so we practically had the place to ourselves, but we couldn't swim (to cold), so we didn't get to take full advantage of the resort. They upgraded our room though to a suite. The view from our balcony was great. The bar was kind of cool. The only thing i have to complain about is the extra services. They were too expensive. To use the tennis courts we would have needed to rent 2 rackets and the balls for $25/hr, a scooter could be rented for 190,000/hr (we walked down the street and rented one for 70,000/half day), the drinks at the bar were way over priced (about $5 for a screwdriver), the spa was really pricey too. We did get free sauna coupons though. That wasn't necessary, but a great treat. We really enjoyed our stay overall.
