Some of the best accomodation in and around Halong Bay

Cat Ba Hostel “is a small family run hotel and restaurant situated on the harbour front in Cat Ba Town … the hotel was extremely welcoming and they had a restaurant which was open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.” (Sophie’s Suitcase)  

Cat Ba Sandy Beach Resort: “Located on Nam Cat Island, a private island in the middle of Lan Ha Bay, Cat Ba Sandy Beach Resort offers unique wooden bungalows ... features a private beach area and restaurant.” (Lonely Planet)

Tam Coc Garden: “Sits in a secluded position amidst the paddy fields and offers three standards of accommodation in bungalows set around a central garden … rooms have been beautifully decorated, making the most of natural materials to create stylish yet simple interiors … all face out to the surrounding countryside with large windows and terraces and well positioned sofas from which you can enjoy the view.” (Travelfish)

Emeralda Resort: “Sitting on the edge of Van Long Nature reserve, a primeval tropical forest … the resort prioritizes being eco-friendly, and you will be surrounded by so much green, made even more magical at night when the paths around the resort get lit up by traditional lanterns.” (The Culture Trip)

The Long Hotel: “Not only is it opposite the boat station in Tam Coc but it’s the biggest building in town, fronted by a large café decked with flags … rooms open off wide terraces, equipped with bamboo chairs and tables from which you can enjoy the view -- from the higher floors at least.” (Travelfish)

Mua Cave Ecolodge: “Tucked in a corner of the karst mountains in Ninh Binh … it’s a good reason to head south of Hanoi on its own and a perfect base to explore the beautiful scenery, charming countryside life, and UNESCO World Heritage sites in the area.” (Detourista)
