The Phong Nha Farmstay has it all. Excellent, personal service from registration to checkout. Clean comfortable rooms; great food and interesting guests to meet. The mood is casual, yet great attention is paid to detail. Western food choices are delicious and Vietnamese food is authentic and wonderful. Also, you will get excellent advice about visiting the local caves and other...

My wife and I really enjoyed our 3 nights here. Service was very friendly and helpful, with prompt replies to questions. Our room was great and we were happy to have our evening meals here as well as the included breakfast. We loved cruising around the area on the farmstay's bicycles (also included) and the one trip the farmstay organised...

Thanks James, for taking the time to write your positive review on TA. We are proud you guys enjoyed your time with us. As you say, it's a great area to explore around the buffer zone of the National Park. While the caves are epic and a must see item on a well thought out itinerary of a trip to...

Love love love love this place! We stayed here for 3 nights and wish it could've been longer. There are so many things to do and see in this remote part of Vietnam. Definitely worth the effort to get to this area. I highly recommend the coffee and muesli breakfast with a side of hash browns, also a really flavourful...

Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful spot, but it wreaks of a backpackers more than a farmstay. If that's what you're after, then awesome place for you. But simple things like the aircon didn't work. And the managers a bit of a toss. Other than that, FAQ.

Sorry Rnibulls, that the Aircon didn't work. We get them serviced regularly and do fix them immediately if guests inform us there is an issue. We let you down all the same. We are also apologetic if there was some misunderstanding with one of our managers. The managers at Phong Nha Farmstay normally get pretty good feedback on TA from...

What an incredible place. The most helpful staff, the most peaceful and beautiful setting, the best activities and a great way to meet really cool, open fellow travelers.

We arrived around 8pm and were welcomed with drinks and really friendly staff. First day we biked around the valley and had lunch at the pub with cold beer and the farmstay staff were very good with directions. Next day we took the national park tour which was amazing!

Congratulations vandatraveltheworld, You've reviewed. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at The Farmstay. It took a bit to put together. The Farmstay that is.

Tried to stay here, but they were fully booked. They directed us to a nearby homestay, but we still ate meals at their restaurant. The prices were high, but inline with what they charged for rooms. Food orders were wrong several times, but they do make a point of advertising that they are trying to assist their staff with learning...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We, Ben and Bich, had an epiphany to start a tourism business in the middle of nowhere and ourfamily and the rest of the community thought we were mad. Now half of them think it was their idea. Our Mission statement was to create what we'd want if we were on holiday, in this then remote and still beautiful region of northern central Vietnam. Comfortable beds, nice views, a swimming pool, full bar, tasty food and top quality tours/activities. Winning formula, so we thought! We get a lot of customers looking for something different to a backpacker hostel scene, but with a fun atmosphere. Not a vietnamese hotel atmosphere either. Something unique. Something for everybody. Immerse yourself in the magic of remote rural Vietnam, between the coast and the mountains, in the northern Central region just now being discovered by mainstream tourism. Take yourself on a trip into a photographer's paradise. Our new French Colonial style accommodation, set in the idyllic surroundings of rice paddy fields on the edge of the famous Phong Nha-Ke Bang World Heritage National Park just off the Ho Chi Minh Trail, is the ideal base for wild adventures that you have only dreamed about... or simply take time to experience the local village life or chill by the pool. There are many tour and do it yourself options to keep you busy for a few days. Send us an email for more information. ... more   less
