THE Mui Ne Sail­ing Club’s open-sided re­cep­tion area is an oa­sis of trick­ling wa­ters, sooth­ing lights and cush­ioned arm­chairs; guests sip on cool­ing ginger tea while wait­ing to check in.

There are 31 beach­front and gar­den bun­ga­lows, all with ter­ra­cotta walls and thatched roofs sur­rounded by lush trop­i­cal gar­dens and me­an­der­ing paths.

Also on of­fer are cute bam­boo-walled suites with air-con­di­tion­ing, fridge, cable television and spa­cious bal­cony of­fer­ing big comfy chairs and ta­ble.

A restau­rant-bar sits be­side the lovely curved pool, just a few me­tres from Mui Ne Bay. Rooms from $US60 ($65), plus tax; hot break­fast is in­cluded in the tar­iff. Check-in and check-out times are flexible. www.sail­ing­club­viet­

Rooms from $US85 (low sea­son); larger fam­ily bun­ga­lows also avail­able.­
