Hong Di Bungalows
70 Nguyen Dinh Chieu St, Ham Tien T: (062) 384 7014
The price is right for budget travellers and while Hong Di’s rooms are not the newest or flashiest and the service isn’t the friendliest, it offers beachfront accommodation.
Hong Di has a bunch of rooms in a longhouse at the back. The mint ice cream coloured walls make the rooms feel slightly dated yet it does come with flash amenities such as flatscreen TV, aircon, mini fridge and WiFi, as well as shiny solid wood furniture and clean linens. The wetroom bathroom has an electric heated shower. Steps lead down to the beach which fortunately has not eroded away like so many other joints in Mui Ne. The sand is probably a more pleasant place to hang out than on the cushionless wooden sun lounger in front of every room.
Hong Di has stiff competition these days, with flashier bungalows at a midrange price. Still, for beachfront their rate can’t be beat. Mui Ne Backpackers Resort’s private rooms are cheaper but there’s no beach.
