Six Senses Con Dao

Con Dao, Vietnam

The hotel

Most desert islands are exclusively for couples, but Six Senses Con Dao does things differently. Its beyond-luxury villas are designed with couples, families and groups in mind – and so is its incredible portfolio of activities and dining. Every ocean-facing beach villa is seconds from the sands, with communal living space and a private infinity pool (some even have an extra lap pool). This being Con Dao, Vietnam’s preserved marine park, you have sands, snorkelling and scuba steps away but, in classic Six Senses style, you also have attractions for every kind of traveller: turtle viewing for nature lovers, island tours for culture vultures, stargazing for night owls, spa treatments and family yoga for serenity-seekers, cookery and mixology for gourmands, and boat charters, water sports, trekking, biking and motor biking for the adventurous.

We just celebrated our honeymoon at Six Senses Con Dao and it couldn’t have been more perfect. The views, the food, the villa and the resort were all top notch. The staff was exceptional and their attention to detail was always there. We had Andrew as our GEM (guest experience manager) who couldn’t have been better. We especially enjoyed the Con Dao Fish Tacos, our trek to Bang Beach with a guide, the cocktail of the day and the Chef’s Table Dinner. The sunrises and sunsets were perfect. They made us feel extra special on our honeymoon and had special gifts for us each day. The fitness center was great too!! Read less

...is beautiful... built on 2K beach. It’s a perfect place to chill out, relax and enjoy the excellent friendly service. Pros Our butler, Andrew who we saw everyday and even managed to move us to a better room when the whole roof collapsed in our bathroom! Food is delicious although a Vietnamese buffet one evening would be a good option. Temporary spa was great. And finally... watching the baby turtles being released on the beach. It’s well worth getting up for - an amazing experience! And to give a balanced review... Cons Music in the restaurants in v. repetitive and in huge need of attention 2:1 ‘happy hour’ - rare to have such a very limited range of drinks... and overall cocktails were not great. Our Pina Colada was missing a vital ingredient! There’s no shade by the pool - a must in this day and age Surprised Dominic (the general manager who lives on the resort) was not more visible around the hotel. Bearing in mind the roof collapsed (in our bathroom) would have been a catastrophic life changing event.... we would have a expected (from any hotel) a call or follow up from the GM! Alas he was silent and for the most part, absent from view. Overall, a great location but there areas of improvement which could easily be made Read less

Recently stayed here for 6 nights with my wife for our honeymoon. We can’t thank the team enough who are so professional, kind and thoughtful in their approach. None more so than our GEM Vee whose incredible intuitiveness gave us the precise balance of attention and help to ensure we had everything we needed on a daily basis as well as affording us the space and freedom to enjoy the beautiful surroundings we were in - she is really worth her weight in gold. The hotel itself was really well thought out in every aspect of it’s construction and mindful of the surrounding beauty it finds it sits within. The stretch of beach is worth staying here for alone. The food is absolutely spot on, even if the chef is a Man Utd fan 😂 At least he’s not a kopite! We wouldn’t think twice about visiting Six Senses Con Dao again I’m the future. Read less

We spent 5 days at Six Sense on the tail end of our honeymoon in Cambodia and Vietnam, and it was the perfect end. After traveling and exploring, we wanted a beautiful, serene beach destination that allowed us to relax, and Six Sense Con Dao did not disappoint. The hotel, nestled between a long private beach and archipelago mountains, provided us with the beach, pool, sun and sand that we were looking for. And while there were plenty of activities to enjoy, we loved our time just being ourselves, swimming, and relaxing. What made Six Senses extra special were their focus on being ecologically and emotionally responsible. We can be pampered and feel special while also taking care of the environment, ourselves, and one another. We also have to give a special thanks to our GEM, Andrew, and the entire staff for making our stay memorable. but also gave us the space to just be. We hope to return to Con Dao or explore another Six Sense location one day soon. Read less
