Catba Island Resort and Spa Hotel Feb 20, 2013
I love the location and the hotel itself. The building is huge, five storeys high with three different size swimming pools and water slides, spacious garden for romantic walk with illuminating light nearby, and curve beach in front of the hotel with security guard guarding the hotel guest and to cast away unwanted visitor. Unfortunately the ocean water at the hotel is quite muddy and a bit cold, so I only have a little dip here before heading back to the pool which the water is warmer.

In addition to this, there is a cliff walk from the hotel to the other side of the beach and it was very nice and pleasant walk which take less than one hour walk. It is not advisable to walk at night time, as there is no light around the walkway and it is quite dangerous, just in case you meet bad people who might push you off the cliff.



Receptionist and other staff around the hotel are friendly and helpful and the hotel has good massage and spa facilities next to the reception area – close to swimming pool. Probably the massage price is higher here than outside, I don’t remember how much does it cost for the massage, but the massage itself is reasonable good and the service is excellent, they gives tea and snack after massage. Spa facilities are free for hotel guest to use. I have paper or plastic tag in my arm for staying in this hotel so the security and other hotel staffs recognize the guest who stays in the hotel.



My room is on the fourth floor, with view across the ocean and swimming pools, big and spacious room with one double bed, big wardrobe, modern amenities and safety box inside the room. Fully working air conditioner, hot and cold shower with good water pressure, plus bathtub, flat screen television and telephone.

The breakfast, is buffet style, warm, and plenty of selection of food – mostly Chinese style of meat, vegetable, fried eggs, fried noodles, bacon, etc, serve from 7am to 10 am. Lunch and dinner at the restaurants is excellent, good food and service with candle light for dinner. Usually we get 3 course meals for lunch and dinner. I booked this hotel with conjunction of Halong Bay tour including one night stay inside the boat and I don’t remember how much does it cost as everything is inclusive, transportation to and from Hanoi, boat trip, sightseeing, water activities, hotel and meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner).


During my stay, the hotel doesn’t have much guest and it was reasonably quite around the hotel and restaurant. However it seems reasonable busy inside the hotel pub/bar and I see several westerners having drink and listening to karaoke. The drink inside the pub/bar is quite expensive; however we can use the pool table there (free of charge I think). It was nice and relaxing stay away from busy life and I would not hesitate to stay here again if I come back to Catba Island.
