How to Get There
We had an excellent stay here in one of the beach villas which was very spacious with 2 rooms, own pool and upstairs veranda - even had personalised bike nameplates - a nice touch! Interesting journey there by speedboat! Staff very friendly and meals very good. Watch out for the ship-shaped pool table!
This hotel is unbelievable. The location, scenery, food and service are all impeccable. There is so much to do at the resort, and all of the facilities are extremely well managed. I would return here in a heartbeat.
After a short speed boat ride we were met by our very own GEM (guest experience maker) who escorts you around the resort telling you how it all works before taking you to your room.
We booked a Water Villa which was just perfect for us. We had direct access into the sea and our own good size plunge pool. We had a large air conditioned bedroom with a huge adjoining bathroom with bath as well as an indoor and outdoor showers.
Our day room was across our deck and also had a double day bed with shower - this was a great place to cool off whilst looking at the spectacular view. Housekeeping was excellent and always came at the time we requested both am and pm.
One thing you have to be aware of is there are approximately 120 steps from the water villas to the restaurant unless you stay in villa number 1 which is closer but not as private.
The resort does have other pool areas, but we didn’t feel the need to use them.
We ate in the main restaurant where the food was good with a reasonable choice. One evening we did eat at ‘Dining On the Rocks’ which unfortunately was a big disappointment. During the day the view would be spectacular but of course at night you can’t see anything. The food was a strange take on western cuisine, not very appetising and at £100 a head just not good value.
We did several activities including the cookery course which was excellent and great fun. We visited the spa several times and all treatments were superb. Our beach picnic was fun and drinks and snacks in our villa were good.
The snorkelling is ok; unfortunately the reef is mostly dead due to a recent typhoon, but in certain spots you still see fish.
The service in every part of the hotel was excellent without exception - the staff couldn’t do more for you.
This is an excellent hotel, but could be perfect by improving the choice and standard of the food.
The distance from the Airport to the Resort takes about 90 Minutes but is worth the travel. Staff at the Hotel is as everywhere in the top Hotels in south east Asia, just great. Super friendly, well trained and more than helpful. At the Six Senses you will find enldless toughtful chosen details which makes the place just perfect. We had a water villa and the walkto the Villa, again, takes time but is worth walking. The villas are outstanding and perfectly well fitted into the surroundings. A place for stressed Managers, honey mooners or couples like us who left their children at home. At the villa again endless details one just falls in love with. Breakfast is outstanding, dinner creativ (not cheap) and an evening at the Retaurant at the rocks is strongly recommended. It is a paradise island and we are looking forward to coming back.
I spent 3 nights with friends at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay and loved it. As a special treat, we booked the 2 bedroom beachfront pool villa (no 15, highly recommend it for great location within the resort).
First of all, the staff is truly amazing. Well trained, great attitude, efficient and goes beyond expectation to make our stay memorable. From the Guest Experience Manager dedicated to us, to the restaurant teams, to the tour guides, from the welcome staff at airport through transfer teams to welcome reception, as well as farewell, everyone is just adorable and professional.
What I loved about the resort is that is well integrated with the surrounding and they care about the environment (bamboo straws!!! And they have a board at the reception showing how much they recycle, produce locally etc).
Our room was stunning, private yet conveniently located (see some photos).
We booked two activities. One was the island hopping with snorkeling. The second was the hiking to private beach with picnic included (this is a quite challenging hike but with rewarding views at the top of the hill before walking down the beach). Both managed so well with friendly, knowledgeable and attentive guides.
The food is amazing too, from the buffet breakfast to happy hours and meals, we savored many of different Vietnamese cuisine recipes.
The beach at the resort is great, can snorkel around (not so much sea life thought but I guess it’s because the bay was hit by a strong typhoon recently - no sign around the resort but must’ve affected the habitat).
