Opened in 2015, Huynh Gia is tapping into the self-catering market, which is all the rage in other Vietnam beach destinations but hasn’t yet appeared on Phu Quoc.
Three of their bungalows are equipped with a kitchenette with gas cooker, all the kitchen and dinnerware you could possibly need, as well as a washing machine. While you can stay for as little as one night, it certainly makes life easier for longer stays. These units feel like move in ready apartments. Bungalows without all the extras follow the same furnishings and practical style: white walls, dark beige curtains and solid wood furnishings including desk, vanity and sitting area. There’s also a flatscreen TV, WiFi, air-con and a big bathroom with a spacious glass shower stall. And since this is a relatively new property, everything looks fresh and clean.
We saw discounts on online booking sites so it’s worth it to do a quick check. But even their rack rate is great value. Huynh Gia Bungalow is located on the other side of Tran Hung Dao, on a paved lane running off of it. There are now several new bungalow-type accommodation on this lane, including Mon Bungalow and neighbour Ngoc Viet, which is nearly identical. It’s walking distance to Long Beach and Long Beach village’s many eateries and bars.
