Coco Beach

Coco Beach Resort is not only the longest-running resort in Mui Ne, it was the very first resort in Vietnam. It occupies prime real estate in the heart of Mui Ne. As the destination has grown, so has Coco Beach from simple bungalows on an empty beach in post-war Vietnam to a family-friendly oasis in a bustling holiday town.



Twenty-eight individual bungalows and three villas dot a well-manicured garden and lawn full of its signature coconut trees, all stretched out along a beachfront that is very wide by Mui Ne standards. Closed every year for a month of renovations and maintenance, the love and attention is apparent as the wooden bungalows appear in top notch condition.

Things are looking sunny.

The interiors balance class and casual comfort, the natural wood softened with bright nautical hues, dreamy mosquito netting and white birch coloured furniture. It’s so comfortable and well laid out, you get a taste of what seaside tropical living would be like – and that means no TV! Bungalows come with big windows, a desk, kettle, full length mirror and private balcony with canvas beach chairs. WiFi, safety box and air-con are also standard amenities. Bathrooms are painted a cheerful yellow and come with a neatly tiled shower with rain showerhead.

Cheerful interiors at Coco Beach.

What really sets Coco Beach apart is the fact that it’s loaded with things to do. There’s something almost retro about a small resort that has so many activities, the bygone days when resorts weren’t so formal, organised or fussy. The fun distractions are abundant. There’s a billiard table, ping pong table, darts, on the beach massages (252,000 dong for a one-hour full body), playground, pub with big screens to watch the game, a French restaurant as well as a beachfront bar/restaurant Paradise Beach Club and a water sports centre – kayaking, stand up paddleboard and sailing. Don’t forget the large swimming pool and plenty of hammocks strung between palms for R&R.

Yep, some bungalows are beachfront.

If you haven’t already surmised, this place is fantastic for families and children – lots of space to run around – but bungalows are spread far enough apart that adults can enjoy quiet privacy. The courteous and helpful staff round this off as an outstanding choice.

If it’s out of your budget (even after you’ve contacted them about any monthly specials), drop into the beach club for a sundowner or get a day pass. Outside guests (up to a daily maximum of 25 people a day) can pay 130,000 dong which gets you a sun lounger, towel and access to the resort’s beautiful section of white sand.
