stayed at hill top villa #14 for 3days. Resort is larger than i thought and some villas MUST need buggy or bike in order to go to restaurent, experince center, etc. I was told there are total 59 villas all spread around the resort; in order to provide full privacy, villas are widely spread. Excursions are well organized; we took spa, wine tasting at the wine cave, hiking, and snorkeling which are highly recommended. Spa and gym is at excellent condition. However, we are told that the resort is at low season, so they are not running one of the restaurents. It was pity not able to use full service and we thought food provided lacked in diversity. However, people at resort were all very kind and very professional in their service. Read less

I stayed here for only 2 nights at water villa no.3. Everything was extremely smooth and outstanding. Before arrival, I would like to thank Ms Hanh at the reservation team, she was really nice and great, helping us planning the short getaway trip. Pros: - All the things I've seen are recyclable, even the AC, remote has the cover made by wood I think. It gives sort of entire escape from normal busy life at the city. - Food quality is very high. It's very tasty and authentic, especially the Pho, not much different from what I eat normally. - View from the water villa is extremely great. - You get free ice-cream. I was lucky enough to get the free drink on Friday (every friday) including cocktails. The free amenities from the resort is real good, not just like those free give-away. - However, the most important thing is Services. I've been to many 5 stars resorts and hotels around world, and I can eagerly say that Six Senses NInh Van Bay provides is on top of sevices provided. I will details with you many things: + Good communication before arrival, thorough explanation with no hassle from MS Hanh. + At the airport, I was insisted by the resort reps to hold our belongings. This is my first time that I've got such thing. Yes, other 5 stars resort will hold for you, but it's about the attitude I've seen, and even I said I could hold it myself, she still wanted to hold it for me. + The driver from airport to the resort clearly says how many minutes left, is the AC alright. + The service is very consistent, all staffs at the resort always say hello to you at a smiley face, not like being forced to do so. I've been to many resorts, and I can tell you that not many will do with good attitude or not very consistent. Before Six Senses, I was at Maldives at a resort and paid for nearly AUD2,000 a night, but the services was not comparable. They was like being forced to work. But here at Six Senses, I felt like always being welcomed by happy, great people. It's not what you do, but how you do it, Six Senses Ninh Van Bay has mastered it and this is the crucial point that make me want to come back. + My partner left the serviett on chair while getting the food. One of the staff crossed by, saw it and she immediately folded it and organized it! This is my first time as well I've seen this, not at other 5 stars resort. To sum up, the services was very professional, friendly, it's many small things, close attention to details that get you impressed. - Our butler, Mr Thai, he was very great at helping us during our short trip. Cons to be honest, I can't think of many bad things about the resort. Probably one of the bad thing is the food selection is very limited for the breakfast. But for us, luckily we eat Pho every breakfast so we don't think much of it. But for others, it may be difficult. Read less

The resort is tucked away in Ninh Van Bay. The bay itself offers a stunning view. Its tranquility blew off all the stress from my busy life during the stay. Each villa is appointed with a private butler and it felt like my butler(I do believe they had a different name for this job but I can’t remember) was always around to help us with anything we needed. The food was excellent and I particularly loved the resort being eco friendly. Though we stayed in a hilltop villa, our villa wasn’t too high up so it wasn’t so bad climbing up the stairs. The villa is spacious and had everything we wished for. We also did the sunset cruise which was just so romantic with our picnic basket with champagne. All the experience at the resort was fantastic and we will definitely go back. Read less

Great stay, amazing views, spectacular eye for details and good service. We were incredibly impressed by this experience as we were part of a wedding celebration at this beautiful resort. We wanted to particularly thank Lam for taking a step forward and assisting us rescheduling our flight tickets. Without his careful help we would have lost our flight connection. He supported us until late at night and escorted us until leaving the resort the day after. I was impressed on how he took personally our needs and supported us with a rare sense of hospitality. Thank you to the Staff of Six Senses for this amazing experience. Read less
