Our planned stay did not get off to a great start as the hotel arranged private airport transfer from Dong Hoi Airport was approximately 20 minutes late and had us feeling a sense of exasperation over what to do prior to the driver finally showing up without offering an explanation or apology for his tardiness. Once we arrived, we were...

Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park is still a relatively hidden gem. It should, however, be at the top of anyone's itinerary for a trip to this wonderful country. And what better place to base yourself than the Phong Nha Farmstay? From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel like you are an integral part of their family....

The only thing wrong with our stay at this haven was the fact that we had to leave! I simply cannot speak highly enough of Guillaume (manager) and his team, the hotel grounds themselves and the quality and pricing of the restaurant. The team were responsive, efficient , informative and fun. An idyllic spot in the middle of no where...

The title says it all. I stayed 3 nights, but only had 2 full days, it was too short. The minimum amount of time you can stay here is 2 nights and they recommend that you stay longer, I agree. I booked in advance from the UK after reading about it in the Lonely Planet and the good reviews on...

We spent 2 nights at the Farmstay as a base for doing an Oxalis cave tour. The property is beautiful and the staff are very nice. They offer a full bar, restaurant, and many activities on site for guests. Free bicycles as well. The rooms are clean and offer balcony access. The local staff are very nice. They have a...

My husband and I stayed there for 5 nights and it was perfect!

The Phong Nha Farmstay is outside the town but it's perfect if you...

This place is a bit of a detour off the Hanoi - Hue sleeper train and made logistics for our onward travel to Hue a bit more painful (long expensive slow private car ride to Hue) BUT make the effort, stay at least 3 days, immerse yourself in the beauty of the place, the friendly relaxed atmosphere, the lovely staff...

This was the ideal place to stay. It was in a beautiful setting with a beautiful set up. The rooms were comfy and luxurious in comparison to places we had been staying in vietnam. It was clean friendly and the food was fabulous. The thing that made the Farmstay as good as it was was the staff. They are all...

The location of this Farmstay is its greatest selling point, a bit out of town with sunset views over rice paddies. The staff were attentive for the most part but a warning to anyone with dietary requirements they may not be respected here. I was served ham on a toasted sandwich twice within one breakfast after sending it back and...

We are very saddened that you received meat in your sandwich. This is not acceptable and we have addressed the issue with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We, Ben and Bich, had an epiphany to start a tourism business in the middle of nowhere and ourfamily and the rest of the community thought we were mad. Now half of them think it was their idea. Our Mission statement was to create what we'd want if we were on holiday, in this then remote and still beautiful region of northern central Vietnam. Comfortable beds, nice views, a swimming pool, full bar, tasty food and top quality tours/activities. Winning formula, so we thought! We get a lot of customers looking for something different to a backpacker hostel scene, but with a fun atmosphere. Not a vietnamese hotel atmosphere either. Something unique. Something for everybody. Immerse yourself in the magic of remote rural Vietnam, between the coast and the mountains, in the northern Central region just now being discovered by mainstream tourism. Take yourself on a trip into a photographer's paradise. Our new French Colonial style accommodation, set in the idyllic surroundings of rice paddy fields on the edge of the famous Phong Nha-Ke Bang World Heritage National Park just off the Ho Chi Minh Trail, is the ideal base for wild adventures that you have only dreamed about... or simply take time to experience the local village life or chill by the pool. There are many tour and do it yourself options to keep you busy for a few days. Send us an email for more information. ... more   less
