Absolutely amazing place! Can't wait to go back”
The staff is so nice. When we arrived we were upgraded to a beachfront cabin. Then we were waited on hand and foot for 9 days. Morning yoga was a treat. The servers became our best friends. There were plenty of options available for tours around the island, kayaking, hiking, etc. But we chose to just laze. Incredible food, free water, free drinks and appetizers many nights. We would give six stars if we could!
Nice and quiet location”
The rooms, the staff and the restaurant is absolutely amazing. The beach could be better. It is very exposed to wind and the water is wild and unfortunately a lot of plastic flows around even though the hotel does what it can to keep it clean. I would recommend the hotel every day and hope to come back again.
Gorgeous private beach, worth going here just for the beach. The meals were huge and great value. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Though for the current price range at $70-$90/ night, I think other resorts offered better value for money as the resort is fully eco (no AC, no fridge etc.) and the room was a bit rundown.
Quiet location away from it all!”
Quiet location on beautiful beach away from the crazy development in town. Fantastic staff and food. Perfect place to relax and forget the world. Enjoyed the eco resort aspects. The bungalows are open air so the geckos and ants may be your roommates, but it’s worth it!
Eco friendly solar powered bungalo village. Staff was awesome and the view was amazing.”
It's an ecofriendly place, so it's not the Hilton. Solar power means when powers gone it's gone till morning. Now I enjoyed that because it allowed me to enjoy the finer things in life, like writing and reading while sitting on a beach all by myself. Staff is amazing. You don't go here for the bathtub and a.c. room, you come here to share their place and become one with their family. Food was out of this world. Sights were amazing, stars are so bright away from the cities pollution. Road in is a bit rough, but I believe it will soon be finished. Very isolated, but in a great way. Also, be sure to get mosquito spray and be aware of snakes, you are in a jungle. With that, I would come here again hands down. They got billards, beer and a beach. What more do you need mate?
Amazing paradise for nature lovers”
If you want to experience firsthand the eco-friendly practices that all hotels should adopt from 2018 onward, Bamboo Cottages is the paradise you need to stop by. The resort has a STUNNING beach. The surrounding is quiet and immersive in nature. Their meals are delicious and tummy-filling. The experience is unique. If you still insist on your luxurious 5-star vacation, you should still give this a try. You'll connect to nature like you have never done before.
Mr Binh Cam On (Thank you) very happy to meet you and very happy you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon The Bamboo Cottages Family
The staff really do make the place exceptional. They go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. The food was a delight and the lime soda on arrival extremely refreshing. The rooms could do with a little TLC.
A Place With A Soul”
A place with a soul! Extremly friendly and attentive staff, well managed, serene, quiet and naturally beautiful, very nice cottages, good food: the true luxury here is that this is a place to truly relax and immerse in a beautiful natual setting. I shall come back
Amazing off the grid Stay”
I stayed here for five nights recently - loved everything about the place. Firstly the service is brilliant all the staff went out of the way to ensure we had a great stay - even the house keeping and turn down is so well done. Always with a smile. Thanks so much. The food is excellent - a bit pricy by Vietnam standards but cheap by Western. Breakfast is included which is a great touch with unlimited coffee and juices. It is about 3km in a dirt road to the main road so you either need to rent a scooter or have taxis take you out - it is about 10km to the closest village. Unfortunately they are building a wharf by the beach so there is the associated noise and traffic (this is what turns the road into a mess) and sadly it seems most of Phu Quoc is being developed at the expense of nature. This is a lovely beach for swimming you like nature, nice clean bungalows, great service and good food stay here. If you want shopping, discos, and bars then best to stay somewhere else.
Wonderful Romantic Vacation that's Also Eco-Conscious”
My partner and I spent about a week here and we had a wonderful time. The thoughtfulness and expert management were apparent to us, not only in what was right about the place, but in what didn't go well and was fixed professionally by the manager, Kai. The staff is wonderful, the beach is lovely, the place is clean as a whistle and the food was very good. It's apparent that this place is a labor of love (and eco-consciousness; Bamboo Cottages' leadership by example cannot be minimized and hopefully will inspire more resorts to do the same), which made us eager to come back again.
Have just spent 9 nights here and it was the best part of my 5 weeks in vietnam. ”
Can't speak more highly of bamboo cottages. Lovely QUIET bay away from all the tourist areas. Hilton the manager and all the staff go out of there way to make you feel at home. Accommodation and meals are very reasonably priced. Free kayak/mask/snorkel hire. Have a massage in the bamboo hut right on the beach. If i could I'd give it a 11/10. Planning to bring my wife here next trip
Hi Phill, was great to have you stay with us, the team miss you, hope to see you again next year :)
Beautiful place but with a lot of struction work ”
The bamboo cottage has a wonderful location a a little nicht beach wich would be perfect to relax. Unfortunately the are building a road close to the place. The very loud trucks and cranes started around 8 a.m in the morning already and there was nothing written about it when we booked it. I checked our paper agai. Because then I would have chosen another place. The bed was hard like a stone but they changed mattress and it was ok. BBQ for almost half a million was very overpriced. But the food was very and and stuff very nice. Room was clean but not the bathtube. And we also didn’t know that they Switch of the Energy completely so that there is no fan going anymore. Woke up in my own sweat every night the fan stopped. But appart from that the place is beautiful and worth to go
Very nice place to relax”
The Staff was wonderful! The Room to the Beach perfekt. Maybe it could be more on the meny, but the food was very tasty!
A special, tranquil spot”
I was so pleased to have found Bamboo Cottages for my quick trip to Phu Quoc. I was there during Tet, so the prices were higher than usual, but I would definitely return another time. The staff is really standout and their attention to detail is commendable. I normally don't like eco resorts because they tend not to be as clean or stylish as other spots, but Bamboo did not compromise either. The food and drinks are also of note - delicious and great value. Highly recommend.
Amazing place ”
- Beautiful view and surroundings. - Friendly and helpful staff who really care about their guests. - Good food. - Activities such as yoga and vietnamese classes for those who are interested. All in all a great place which I would recommend to anyone. It seems like it's mostly couples who stay at this place, but I traveled with a group of 6 friends and we all enjoyed our 1 week stay here. One week was however a bit too long as there is not too much to do around this area, I think 3-4 days would have been perfect for us. But we wanted a nice, calm and relaxing week in paradise which is exactly what we got!
Awesome view, great place to rest a few days”
The sea view cottages offer a breathtaking view of the bay. The bathroom is partially without a roof, so you can enjoy the pure nature. It's an eco resort, so no AC. The mattress was a little to hard, our hips hurt a little after the third night. The beach is well maintained, not really private, but mainly uses by their own guests. They offer free kayaks and have some nice activities on the schedule. The food was good but a little bit too pricey for Vietnamese standards. The staff is great and very helpful. The resort is a little remote, thus you need a taxi or the hotel shuttle, which was around $20. The driver was a little too ambitious, trying to get to and from the resort really fast, almost pushing motorbikes off the road. I don't want to be on the road on a motorbike having him overtake me.
Our best experience in Phu Quoc”
This little retreat in the northwest side of PQ is an absolute dream. The location is lovely. It’s a very cool, petite, eco hotel and the layout is really rustic and cool. They welcome you as a family member and the staff is amazingly professional. Great service, spoke great english (not everyone does, which we learnt traveling around the island) and you can borrow kayaks, board games etc in the reception for free. Highly recommend you to join the yoga lessons with Lola. It’s twice a day - intense yoga in the morning and relaxing yoga in the afternoon. Last but not least THE FOOD. We extended our stay here twice to be able to eat through the menu! Don’t miss it.
We have stayed three nights in Bamboo Cottage and it was very special and a great experience. The location is very quiet and relaxing. What we have preferred most was the individual and special approach at this eco-tourism place: It's run by solar power, there are no plastic bottles, but refill glas bottles and you have the feeling that there is a general feeling of great responsibility and sustainability towards the islands nature as well as employees and guests. The beach is really nice (no worries about the pier mentioned in some reviews - it's smaller than expected and while we were there it was barely in operation and was not loud at all!), food is exceptional and the staff always putting a smile on your face. Yoga classes are really good as well! The restaurant is located directly at the beach - so enjoy your time there with your feet in the sand and the sea breaze around. Highly recommended!
Environmental, friendly and truly beautiful!”
One thing I really struggle with when I travel is leaving a positive impact on the countries I go to. Making people smile is a start but our environmental footprint is a lot harder to control. Everything we buy seems to be wrapped in plastic, every hotel has an endless breakfast buffet that no doubt results in a huge amount of waste, and I don't even want to think about how much electricity the tourist industry uses. Luckily there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. Eco-tourism is a growing industry that is helping travellers minimise the down side of our adventures. Bamboo Cottages is a great example of a resort that really takes this seriously. This resort is almost completely plastic free - the boss looked ready to fire someone when he found out I was given a plastic straw with my drink! It is off the grid (solar powered) - water is not always hot but it's totally worth it. And the delicious food seems to be prepared with local produce and minimal waste. Another plus with this resort is that they look after their staff (and you can tell), there is something genuine in the friendly guest interactions, these are not programmed robots, they are people who seem to really enjoy their jobs and making guests happy. Our welcome was overwhelming, as soon as we got out of the cab we were surrounded by smiling faces and the positive vibes continued throughout our stay. My fondest memory of bamboo Cottages was the family dinner, the food was exquisite and the atmosphere was perfect for making new friends. The place is run by a family and often at night the father, Hai, who is a very charismatic and entertaining man, will sing, play guitar, and invite people up to join him. He is also a great story teller and at the end of the dinner we were lucky enough to hear stories about his family and how they escaped to America after the war. I could continue this review and tell you about the spectacular location, the beautiful 'stilt-house' we stayed in, the Kayaking trip we took
Great place for a getaway”
Location: the North of Phu Quoc island is a remote area, not much tourist activities to do there. There's no local restaurant in that area so most of the time we eat the the cottage. It best suitable for anyone who want to stay with the nature, and enjoy quiet time with their family or friends. The beach is very clean, you can also see the fishing ships nearby (and can even reach them if you using kayak). During our stay, the construction site did not work, or maybe we stay on the far side so we did not hear any disturbing noise. Food: The restaurant is very good. The serving size is pretty big (for me at least) and it's fusion so both foreigners and local can enjoy it. Price is acceptable with this quality. It cost about 12~15$/person. However, the food in the restaurant is just general Vietnamese dish, the one you can eat in any decent restaurants in HCM, and they don't serve Phu Quoc local dishes. If you want to try genuine Phu Quoc dish you need to take a taxi for 1 hour to the south of the island. It's ok if you just stay in the cottage for 2-3 days, but we stay for 6 days so it's kind of boring for us. Breakfast is free but it's the same every day, and it's not so good compared with lunch & dinner. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They truly bending over backward to help us during our stay. Room service is clean. We received many helpful guide from kitchen staffs when we planed our island tour. They offer many free drinks and suction cup massage. The cottage helped you arrange taxi and motor rent, and everything went smoothly for us, which was very helpful, since the location is very difficult to rent a bike or taxi by yourself. The outdoor bathroom is not as bad as we imagined, the roof cover 1/2 of the bath, and only heavy rain will annoy you a little bit. In trade-off, you get the chance to experience taking shower in the open air, with sunshine and wind. The main problem is their solar energy system, the fan turned off after 0AM midnight. If it is
