For budget travellers
Hoang Khang Hotel is only a five-minute walk to the beach and walking distance to White Sands Doclet Resort & Spa, where you can enjoy a clean section of beach for free or rent a lounger and umbrella.
Hoang Khang is also close to a stop for the Nha Trang – Doc Let bus, so getting to this budget accommodation is extremely affordable and convenient. It’s a local Viet style hotel catering to domestic tourists and unfortunately we noticed that the hallways were dirty but the rooms were acceptable for the price, with fan, air-con, mini-fridge, box TV and modern bathroom. Though their website says “sea view” rooms it’s a glimpse of a sliver of blue and not worth paying extra. But you don’t stay here for the ambience or view. It’s a bed at a budget price close to the beach and the rate includes breakfast. Because it is close to the beach, it is isolated from civilisation so finding decent food is a minor inconvenience. For lunch and dinner, there’s a deserted-looking restaurant attached to the hotel, White Sands is an option, or walk 1.3 km into the closest village. Go by taxi or take a long 2.3 km walk along the beach to Paradise Resort or posh Some Days of Silence. For both, meals are at set times and you should call to make reservations in advance.
Hoang Khang Hotel is a good base for budget beach bums to explore Doc Let. However, if you are thinking of staying here, consider that Paradise Resort is double the price, but is beachfront, ocean view and it includes three meals.
