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.

The resort is placed on the most increadible beach and the villas melt in the background and do not disturbe the scenery. Fantastic! The resort was more or less full when we were there but the beach felt like we were on a Robinsdon Cruise Island... We had a 3 room villa with 2 pools directly on the beach and the view over the sea is amazing!! The resort is build like an old vietnamese village so either you walked along the beach 10 min or took the bike to the restaurants.. Great feeling! The villas are pristine! Bathroom is very spacy and with an outdoor shower and a big bathtube.. you can lie in bath or in the pool and view out over the sea with a glass of wine... Food is high class and morning breakfast you cannot get better.. fresh juices, fruits, one of the best scrambled eggs and cappucinos I have had (small details but important for me..)... We travelled 3 old lady friends and all of us enjoyed it fully. We used the SPA and you can ask for any type of massage or treatment you like.. But most important when it comes to it, the people at the Six Senses Con Dao are so friendly and kind and caring and very helpful for any wish you have.. Our GEM Andrew is a star... helping us with everything... on Womens day last Saturday he came to the villa and put down 3 red roses on the beds for us.. beautiful touch! Before retiring I have travelled a lot and stayed in many top classed hotels all over the world, Six Senses Con Dao is laid back and one of the most beautiful to which I will come back for a total relaxation and to enjoy beauty.

For a top of the range resort the quality of the villas is very poor indeed.

For a top of the range resort the quality of the villas is very poor indeed. It is a stripped back style but it is all wooden and feels tired and a bit grubby even though the cleaning staff were very good. The two story villas are weird. Both levels are separately lockable and connected by an outside wooden staircase which is strange when you go to bed on the top level. The wardrobes were poky and smelled of mothballs and had silly bamboo hangers. This was so not what we expected for what is a very expensive resort. Having said this the location is stunning with the best beach every, a mile long with clean firm sand. The Vietnamese restaurant is lovely but we were very disappointed with the beachside restaurant where the food was ordinary and we both got food poisoning which knocked us out for three days.

If you are looking for a spot to chill out and relax, this is the place. If you are a bit more adventurous and want to enjoy some activities, this is the place. We stayed for four nights at the end of our tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. Dominic and his team provided hospitality and service by the bucket load. Sophie was our in resort manager and looked after us superbly. Simply exceeded our expectations time after time. Well done !! The location and accommodation did not disappoint. Our villa was extremely clean and comfortable with great views and access to the beach for a stroll by the sea. You can either simply soak up the in resort dining ( some great flavours) or head off to town 10 minutes down the road and sample the local restaurants. Breakfast was served in the beachside restaurant and provided a wide selection of western and Asian dishes to cater for all tastes. The views across the sands just added to it all. We are missing Jasmine who always attended to us with a charming smile. No hesitation in recommending this resort for great accommodation and the best levels of hospitality and service. B&F Read less

This place didn’t fulfill our expectations. The place is build to resemble a fishing village. This is one of those ideas that seems fantastic in theory, however the results are that the hotel seems worn down due to the weather and saltwater, and lacks the luxurious atmosphere, that is expected in this price range. Our villa had two level. Bathroom/ toilet and dressing room downstairs, sleeping and lounge area and toilet upstairs. To go from one to the other you have to go outside. We found it really annoying with this separation. The outdoor shower area is boring, and again without the luxurious feel, more like a backyard. The dining area totally lacks atmosphere, no candle light, no flowers on the table. The food was good, however, a suggestion could be to organize theme nights eg seafood barbecue, and not just serve by an a la carte menu with tonights special. Also the main pool area lacks atmosphere - a few flowerpots could do the trick. Furthermore, the main pool area is very open and unprotected against the strong winds, that was constantly blowing the entire week of our stay. One day we were by the pool for 3 hours without any service present. The private pool area by the villa is beautiful, but again the wind made it difficult to use. The staff is friendly and helpful, but very impersonal and seemed rehearsed. However, our GEM Quang was sweet and attentive. Read less
