Two styles of accommodation are available at Hiep Thanh Resort: Chinese-style hotel fare and large bungalows, each painted in a bright pink hue. Rooms in the hotel are over-furnished and a little frilly, with dainty framed prints and small writing tables crammed in around the large, hard beds. Phuquoc explorer may have a balcony but, like other things in the room, you’ll probably find this on the small side.
The bungalows, on the other hand, seem huge and under-furnished, with basic beds looking out of proportion in the echoing space. Maybe it’s due to the location but we found the main pathway a bit of a wind tunnel, which kept the resort breezy from the end to end. Being partly squashed in behind Cassia Cottage, the resort has a small slice of beachfront so you may find yourself fighting fellow guests for a chair. If you can’t find a beachfront chair, some nice shady spots are scattered throughout the resort. Hiep Thanh isn’t the worst place on the island, but you can do better within walking distance.
