Bai Sao beachfront
The Beach House offers two spacious rooms in the upper floor of the main wooden building, as well as three in a cottage located behind in the less than scenic parking pad.
What you are really here for is the prime Bai Sao beachfront. We were only able to see the upstairs rooms, which give guests a stunning vantage over the sand and water mere metres away.
Rooms look recently refurbished and the polished wood floor, walls and ceiling gleams like new. Yes, all the wood does feel a bit heavy but the glass doors leading to the balcony does allow for sunlight. The balcony’s sea views and patio set make it a seriously tempting spot to spend some time. Keep the doors open at night for the sound of the ocean and a breeze.
If au naturelle doesn’t suit you, there is air-con, as well as fan, WiFi, mini-fridge, mirror, wardrobe and clothes dry rack. The enormous modern bathroom also looks new. The glass shower stall has two different nozzles and there’s a gigantic bathtub. The rate includes breakfast at their beach restaurant. Serving Vietnamese, Italian and German fare, The Beach House restaurant is one of the best places to eat at Bai Sao. Sun chairs and kayaks available to rent gives you even more reason to stay put. The Beach House is a great find, and it’s one that completely flies under the radar.
To get there, travel on the main dirt road to Bai Sao, then take the second dirt track and follow signs to its neighbour My Lan.
