Weekend Getaway – The boathouse Mui Ne

Who has not ever wanted to get away from Saigon for a weekend with great friends?

We had several choices of destination, but we choose Mui Ne over Vung Tau and Ho Tram, and have found this villa on booking.com. It a huge house with 4 bedrooms (one with sofa bed), 3 bathrooms, front beach, outdoor swimming pool, barbecue and private parking. A night on weekend cost us roughly 8,000,000 VND so 1,000,000 VND per person. Fair price I guess. And then, the rent of the car for the weekend with driver cost us about 4,000,000 VND for a 7 seats car.

This villa is really perfect for getaway with friends. However, it is quite difficult to get there (and out of there). It is at the very end of Mui Ne and totally out of the city center. If you want to have lunch or dinner outside, you might need a taxi unless you enjoy to have a very long walk. Lucky us, we did buy some stuff before we got there, thing I do recommend. The good thing is that the villa has a staff at disposal so you can just order what you want for breakfast and barbecue and they will go to buy and prepare it for you. The rooms are quite big, with a private bathroom and a dressing for some of them. It is clean, bright and the sheets and towels are provided.

With two kitchens, it is nice to wake up and have breakfast upstairs, starring at the sea, and then have lunch or dinner downstairs next to the swimming pool.

With a direct access to the beach, you can enjoy a nice walk on the sand, however the beach is not as nice as in the city center of Mui Ne, and doest have any water sport activities.

So guys, if you are looking for a relaxing weekend with friends, here is where you should go. Friendship is all about sharing, book it now 🙂
