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.

If you want to go to a place where everything is just perfect, then this is it. Literally, when we got picked up from the airport in Con Dao, to when we went home, everything was taken care of. We stayed in an Ocean Front Duplex Villa for 14 nights which was amazing. Every morning, we were awoken to the sound of the sea, which was like a lullaby. Every bit of stress vanished which was a miracle. It was like having your own private beach to yourselves, as hardly anybody was on it. The staff at this place were nothing short of excellence. They are the most friendliest, kindest and positive people you will ever meet. Their professionalism is consistent as all of the staff take into account your likes and interests, calling you by your name every day. Our Gem’s Quang/Rodrigo will be unforgettable as they couldn’t have done enough for us. Both of them equally provided us with impeccable service-true gentlemen. The restaurant staff at the beach always welcomed us with smiles such as Jasmine, Kahn, Dhruv etc... Each one of them felt like family. The Head Chef Daniel was like a friend and greeted us personally nearly every day. He was very accommodating to our palate, offered to cook a traditional Sunday Roast which was off the menu and was so perfect. He is that talented that his culinary skills even converted myself to enjoy some fresh tuna! The restaurant staff made my birthday, one of the best ever. All the staff at Elephant Bar were super nice Kris, Jham etc... The spa was superb. We first had an Indian Head Massage when we arrived to relax us after a 20hr flight. We then had a Journey and Deep Tissue massage. A special mention to Anna at the spa for her Chakra healing. Finally, I want to say a very special thank you to Nora for all of her professionalism. Without her management and leadership skills, this would be a very different place. If you want to go to an island where you are loved and taken care of in every way then you must visit. The only negative point that I would have to say is that we couldn’t stay any longer. I really felt like a turtle being taken out of the sea when I left as it felt like home. A very dreamy experience!!!!! A big thank you to everyone. Read less

We were here on our honeymoon, which they made amazing, but beyond that everything was perfect. Every detail and had we written the review earlier (before we felt obliged to write reviews given what we read), we could have named half the staff. If your travels take you here, it is a must.

We were here on our honeymoon, which they made amazing, but beyond that everything was perfect. Every detail and had we written the review earlier (before we felt obliged to write reviews given what we read), we could have named half the staff. If your travels take you here, it is a must. If you are remotely near, it is a must. From the breakfast to the beaches to the excursions and most importantly the privacy the rooms afford, you can’t do better. Read less
