The unique Pandanus Resort is the only one in Vietnam that offers a complete all-inclusive program which means you don’t have to worry about budgeting each day – all facilities including meals, drinks, laundry services and local tours will be included in the price you pay. Taking it a step further, the resort also offers a complimentary daily wine and cheese reception, with two in-house bands serenading into the night. To make your stay even better they offer an introductory walking tour of the Mui Ne fishing village and town, free of charge. At Pandanus, you can expect typical resort facilities such as a pool, hot tub, steam room, onsite dining options, fitness center, spa and more.
Full Moon Village is a beachfront resort with just 17 villas, each furnished with kitchenettes and other amenities to make you feel at home. All villas are surrounded by lush tropical gardens and come with private jacuzzis. Sightseeing tours, catamarans and plenty of watersport activities can be organized at the reception. Thanks to being located a little out of the center, you will be rewarded with cleaner beaches and less noise. Shuttle service makes transport to the center of the city and back easy.
Located in the beautiful Muine Bay, this 4-star resort includes 105 rooms of which 32 are bungalows designed to represent ancient Cham culture. The surrounding grounds are well maintained, and the calm beach that is just a stone’s throw away is great for lounging around. A delicious seafood BBQ buffet is organized regularly (and exclusively) every weekend evening. If you’re looking to feel isolated from the rest of the small (but busy) town, this is your best option.
Sea Links City is the largest and most exclusive resort complex in Mui Ne, situated a mere 12 kilometers away from the city center. Not only does it have over 500 rooms, villas and apartments to choose from, but within the premises you can find a beautifully landscaped 18-hole golf course, night club, a sun terrace, infinity pool and other facilities expected at a five-star resort of this calibre. There is even a wine cave and a fishing area. Each morning here begins with a deluxe buffet breakfast, that has rave reviews.
