The luxury island choice
Sunrise is a beautiful resort with a big pool and plenty of umbrellas and sun-loungers along the short, narrow strip of beach it rests upon.
The beach is open to the public so gets busy, but you can always retreat to the peace and quiet of the resort and maybe indulge in a massage at the on-site spa. Staff are well-trained, as you'd expect for the price, and rooms are pretty much the best you'll find on Cat Ba. Go for a deluxe if you can as they have views of the bay. Quoted prices do not include 15% taxes and surcharges. Vietnamese and Western buffet breakfast is included. Search online for a competitive rate.
