Fair2.0 / 5
The Island is basic obviously but the food varies a lot & also the Huts are very uncomfortable the doors dont lock & there are loads of gaps for the bugs to get in? Seating or a sofa in the Hut would be nice? It would be nice if they offered snacks or alternatively so Western style food! Also on the return the taxi driver didnt have a clue who where or what?

Return To Nature
We stayed here 2 nights and it was one of the highlights of our trip at Nha Trang. Transport there costs $20USD per person each way. There's no other choice. Costs us $80USD from Nha Trang City to the island and back. The hotel is very eco. The hut we stayed at is made of bamboo and wood. There are basic and clean toilet. There is no air conditioning or hot water. Amenities are old but is in working condition. Be careful there is a lot of bugs and ants. They give you the buggie net so make sure you use that. The beach was like those heavenly made ones. The water is so clear you can see your toes and many fishes swimming. The fishes arent afraid of people they will swim near you. Theres so many sea urchins near the rocks and they hurt so be aware. Rent the gears and kayak for about $25 USD half day. You can also walk around the island but theres so much rubbish around its not so nice. There's good view though. There's a bar near the beach. The drinks are nice and reasonably priced. There's only 1 option for food. You have to pay about $700000 VND for 2 person (14USD) per meal. It is very expensive for Viet Nam price. We had meals better for 400000VND at a different island. The food is of good portion and variety but is poor value. Food is set menu and some of the food didnt agree with my taste buds. We hope the food quality will improve. We're glad we stayed at Whale Island. It was over all a lovely experience

Great setting trumps minor negatives
Beautiful setting, bungalows in great location, only one place to eat/drink on this tiny island so the boss could serve anything and charge anything, but the food was good - a high-quality mix of Vietnamese and foreign fare, and the drinks were strong, delicious and reasonably priced. Only negative is iffy wifi, sometimes slow service, and you have to pay $20 per person to transfer there each way from Nha Trang city, over 2 hours on car and then by boat. These are for trips they're making anyway for supplies and staff. They use solar heaters for the showers, which is a great idea to save energy, but then you have to run the water for 10 minutes just to get lukewarm, which is wasteful and uncomfortable for a resort of this caliber. A little gas would go a long way to get consistent hot water. Service is sometimes a little lazy, but overall the location, quiet environment and elegant setting makes this a very nice place to go.
