Doi Duong Hotel
Across the road from the beach
209 Le Loi St, Phan Thiet T: (062) 382 1579 F: (062) 382 5858
Doi Duong Hotel dominates Phan Thiet’s beachfront.
Built by the government before Vietnam reopened its doors to foreign tourism in the early 1990s, it still has some legs as the interiors have been upgraded at some point since then – though the same can’t be said about the lift, it’s dodgy. Scary lift aside, Doi Duong manages to be a cut above its shabby neighbour Binh Minh.
The rooms we were shown had laminate floor, white walls (and one wall with some very hypnotic wallpaper) and a few handy pieces of furniture such as a luggage rack, bedside table and desk/vanity with lamp. Rooms also had a small flatscreen TV, kettle, WiFi and air-con. Big windows offered a lot of natural light. Covered in shiny forest green tiles, the bathrooms have a hotel circa 1990’s layout which means you get a large countertop and a generic bathtub/shower combo.
Doi Duong Hotel is located directly across Phan Thiet’s main public beach, an extremely popular spot at the end of the day and on weekends. Doi Duong isn’t great value – you can get a whole lot more for the same price at a few beachfront joints in Mui Ne. The discounted online rates we’ve seen for Ocean Dunes Resorts makes the price comparable. However, if you really want to be in the thick of the local beach action, Doi Duong has the prime location. Rate includes breakfast. English is limited.
