But pricy, not much eating options. You asked this question which is totally improper since it is a leading question which suggests the answer. This results in a valueless and biased response: How was your stay at Whisper Nature Bungalow? Do you agree? You should not ask me if I agree. You should make your question completely open ended such as Please rate your state at xxx.
You should not suggest an answer in your question.
That borders on corruption and harms your brand. I wish better instruction on how to get there was provided. It's take me almost 12 hour travel from Ha Noi. Quality of Hoang Long Bus was rather disapointing. The driver put a lot more people than it's supposed to be on bus and on boat.
At the end I felt unsafe to use Hoang Long bus and get off their bus and took bike taxi to bus station to get back to Ha Noi. The bungalows were in a calm and peaceful valley in the center of the island, away from the chaos of Cat Ba town. The staff organized a lovely day tour of Halong Bay for us and we had such relaxing days spent hiking, biking, and kayaking in the unbelieveable surroundings. I would highly recommend staying here! It is a great place to get away and enjoy the local village life - we loved bike riding on the one and only road in excellent condition with no traffic and very safe for kids.
We loved the village and all the puppies and kittens to play with.
We certainly didn't love the bungalow itself as it felt like being locked up in a concrete box - not the typical bungalow you would imagine. The isolation of the place is wonderful for a short time only, as there is not much to do and the food options are very limited - it's great to get back to civilization - two days was enough for us we also stayed elsewhere on Cat Ba island and did all that's to do there.
The bungalows itself are fine and located in a beautiful valley between hill ridges.

The food at the hotel is good. However, the costs of our stay were more than 2x higher than just the booking fee - beware! Yes, the information on the Agoda website is inaccurate. The situation at the ferry departure point is very chaotic and if it weren't for our Vietnamese traveling companions we could have easily been ripped off, since there are no signs justifying the costs or tickets you need or don't need. A ticket that allows a foreigner to enter Viet Hai: Dining at the hotel: There's only one other restaurant in Viet Hai according to the hotel manager, but in this remote place it seems unlikely anyone will venture out to find it, so add these costs to your stay.
Transport by electric vehicle from the ferry to the hotel and vice versa: There isn't a beach on Viet Hai. I would recommend this hotel, but not to the budget traveler or to people who want to spend only one night here. Two nights is perfect and expect to pay western prices in Viet Hai and Cat Ba. I stayed at the hotel after hiking through the national park. I was not aware that this way and by boat from Cat Ba Town is the only way getting there. I was very relieved to arrive at the hotel. I did not know that I will be charged for everything but the bed and the shower.
Even though I enjoyed my stayed there very much, because it's so quiet and remote and because the people were nice. I was not very happy about the fact that no one told me about other dining options but the one at the hotel and that I even had to pay fro bottles of water. Although it has much to offer, Tripadvisor's claim that Whisper Nature is Cat Ba's " 2 hotel" seems a gross misrepresentation.

We did a little research beforehand obviously not enough and when reading about "valet parking" on a website imagined we could take a taxi there. Instead we needed a taxi, a boat and a convoy of motor cycles to transport us and all our luggage. The journey itself was quite fun and the boat trip wonderful, but had we known that it was a remote village set in a national park we would have been better prepared! Visitors should be aware, there is no heating available.
We visited in February and, despite 5 layers of clothing including thermals , could not get warm. On returning to Cat Ba town we stayed in the " 1 hotel" - Cat Ba Sunrise Resort, in a grand deluxe room which provided welcome warmth, luxury and stunning, unspoilt views of the water. The bungalows are really run down, however, I liked the remoteness of the location, everyone ate dinner together and we weren't given a choice but the food was quite nice.
I loved riding the bicycle down to the wharf, the scenery was beautiful, we kayaked by ourselves to a remote beach, was absolutely beautiful. It is a really nice location, but it's getting old. The hotel needs renovation The some of the stuff wasn't very friedly. Breakfast was terrible. One cold pancake with a consitens of gum. If you aske for more We had a great stay. The hotel is very remote and peaceful. Vietnam Hotels. Cat Ba Island Hotels.
