Birthday celebrations and needed a few days to escape - booked this in Apr and forgot about it...we were pleasantly surprised and will be back. 1hr car ride + 20 mins speedboat takes to you Ninh Van Bay - here you can be as active or chilled as you please. Beautiful hill top pool villa and surrounded by nature. We made some new friends - families of the endangered black shanked douc langurs...we loved it. As you would imagine - food, service and facilities as you would expect from Six Senses. We would highly recommend this spot! Go explore! Read less

The resort is on the edge of peninsula but you need to travel by canoe so you feel like to come to island. We kept coming to this Six Sense Ninh Van Bay every year. Every time we feel to come back home. It has beautiful landscape with large rocks lying on the beach. The villas on the beach or on the rocks. Authentic style. Friendly staff and management. Each villa has the butler to help any guidance or bookings for activities on "island". Very quiet. It is perfect for honeymoon or holidays people who like to have privacy and relaxed time. Menu of the restaurant does not have many choices but enough to have both Vietnamese and Western food. Very nice and we enjoy very much. Read less

An excellent sampling of the varied food scene in Vancouver BC. The international food flair coupled with local & national Canadian foods create an exotic mix for all to enjoy. With the various Asian population growth there is no end to Asian cuisine.

Exceptional staff, across the board. Ive forgotten most names except for Nir, our butler, who was personable, attentive, welcoming and warm. He deserved a much bigger tip than I gave him, but I was woefully short on cash when we left. Besides the staff, the property and room were beyond great. My wife had requested the Water Pool Villa 5 when we… Read more
Exceptional staff, across the board. Ive forgotten most names except for Nir, our butler, who was personable, attentive, welcoming and warm. He deserved a much bigger tip than I gave him, but I was woefully short on cash when we left. Besides the staff, the property and room were beyond great. My wife had requested the Water Pool Villa 5 when we booked several months earlier; it was a secluded and a great place to spend a few relaxing days. Spa and massage were top tier, gym was big, empty and air-conditioned, and overall property was immaculate. Read less

I’m not sure I know where to start as this resort takes service to a whole new level and we have traveled a lot. Everywhere you go in this resort your every need is anticipated and attended to by the most friendly efficient staff. Upon arrival you meet your personal guest experience managers who take care of your every need throughout your stay and our GEN, Min was exceptional. The service is efficient but not obsequious. The resort itself is beautiful we commenced our stay in a Water villa which is as the name suggests located over the water. The slight drawback to this were the number of steps to access it 167 in number to Water Villa no 2 although they are not all upwards but the pitch and level vary so if you have dodgy knees you may want a Beach villa. Our travel plans changed and we decided to stay for an extra three days and moved to a Beach villa which is also fabulous, every villa including the beach villas has its own pool. There is twice daily housekeeping with minute attention to detail. The main restaurant serves a buffet style meal with an a la carte option available although we opted for the variety of buffets over the course of our stay, Mediterranean, Vietnamese, surf and turf to name but a few. We also had a private BBQ at our villa which was incredibly special. There is an excellent spa here and I highly recommend the signature facial. The hilltop gym is very well equipped and has spectacular views. We stayed for a total of eight blissful nights, it was truly an amazing experience Read less
