How to Get There
Yes, this resort chain has a solid reputation of delivering excellence. They also do on one of the most natural islands Vietnam has to offer; Con Dao.
Thanks to a virtual monopoly on hospitality of this 5 star level on the island, it adds an air of unspoiled nature, space, air, noise and sense of remoteness to the mix that is truly unique.
Yes there are comparable places (Thailand, Maldives etc) but the difference is that with other resorts on this level, once you step out of the resorts on the public roads again, pollution and roaring local life will overwhelm you right away. Not here!
The entire resort is kept up to date, and maintenance is written with a capital M.
I do hope you can keep the standards as you always do, and keep the island away from mass tourism that we see in Thailand.
This place is luxury on another level! The beach view villa was wonderful, the bathroom the stuff of dreams. Stayed three nights and wish it could have been more. The staff are incredible and the service outstanding. If all you want to do is relax and eat, then this is the place for you. The spa is wonderful, the treatments divine. If you want to swim, paddle board, suba, walk on the beach, this is the place for you! Our GEM Vee was so attentive, just wanted to be able to take her home with us!
Our 3-generation family enjoys a week here each year. It is paradise.
We stay in a ocean-front beach villa and love waking up daily and walking the beach.
There is not another place with natural beauty that can compare with Six Senses Con Dao.
We enjoy biking and even the small children get a bike. The food is healthy and delicious. We enjoyed the pastry chef, Mr. Thanh’s cake, the fresh garden-grown vegetables, playing in the warm ocean water, and enjoying the best stars we have ever seen.
Thank you, Mr. Chris, for the personal attention, Miss PHƯƠNG (Lucy) our super GEM, Mr. Dhruv for making us a homemade meal and winning over the grandchildren with ice cream.
This is a place to really relax and soak in the beauty. Well done.
Our extended family just spent a delightful week at Six Senses Con Dao (SSCD). The weather was the best we have ever experienced (we visit annually) and our kids (6, 4 and baby cousin age 1) had a blast. They insisted on going to play at the Kid's Club every morning after breakfast. The staff (Ms. Chi and Ms. Hannah) were lovely and so kind. They did sand art, designed t-shirts, decorated cookies and even planted seeds to grow vegetables. We rented motorbikes to explore the island and saw lots of monkeys out near the port. Our whole family loved waking up early and playing on the beach before breakfast (when the sun was less intense for the little ones). In the afternoon the sea was so warm, clear and beautiful for swimming! We all had such a great time, we are hoping to plan an extra visit there this summer. We love all the warm staff at SSCD. Hope to see you all again soon!
We spent New Year 18/19 at Six Senses, having had an amazing two weeks in Vietnam. We thought it would be great to wind down before returning home, however, despite many promises, there was literally nothing to do. All snorkelling / water sports were cancelled whilst we were there, which was the key point for our teenagers. Six Senses is expensive before you go, but as a captive audience it is unbelievably expensive when you get there. For a 1 litre bottle of pineapple juice we were charged $25. Tough when your family only drink water / fresh juice rather than fizzy drinks. A fairly standard Italian buffet was $240 (for the four of us with drinks and service on top). Yes, its stunning, the rooms are eco friendly, but for a family with teenagers who like to do activities and eat / drink, we have stayed in many better locations. Disappointing.
