How to Get There
Our villa was outstanding, the staff could not have been more helpful- the food was delicious
However we chose to go on a snorkelling trip offered by the hotel with another couple and in all honesty it was totally unsuitable and extremely dangerous We arrived back at the hotel with cuts from the coral - health and safety was certainly not taken into consideration. We were extremely disappointed with the management reaction and the lack of feedback we received as to how this could possibly have happened We were told by the manager the following day that he had not yet read the report and heard nothing more from him
Warning if you intend to snorkel through the hotel find out in detail what the experience entails and that you are not put in an uncomfortable situation
This property is really all about the location, seclusion, exclusivity and service. The beach is absolutely pristine, with not a trace of litter its entire length. The sand, is dark golden, and the sea warm, with great waves to play and swim in, and very safe. Without exception, the staff were extremely friendly and efficient, constantly with a smile, and ready to do everything possible to make your stay special. Breakfasts were excellent, lunch and dinner options were fine, if not limited. I had read previous reviews, and seen photographs, and so had an idea of what to expect. My wife however, had not, and was disappointed in the resort itself, namely the public areas. We understand the concept of Six Senses, and its eco credentials, but we feel that this could still be respected, but with much improved public areas. Our villa was lovely. Rustic in style, but everything worked well, and the location on the beach was wonderful. The public areas we felt, were looking sad, worn in places, rather tired and without soul. This hotel really is in need of some refurbishment, albeit, maintaining the rustic approach. The arrival area is extremely disappointing without any impact. The reception area very, very weak. This was the overall feeling we had of the public areas. Some attention to detail was missing, for example, it was really unacceptable to have dead bamboo plants on entering the beach restaurant, and beside the pool bar. Just take them away! There was building works going on next to the pool area, and all day there was the noise of banging, sawing and nail guns. We only lasted 20 minutes and left. We saw nobody at all at the pool bar during our 5 night stay. We enjoyed our time very much, but given the price point, we felt that the hotel just lacked something. We were disappointed and certainly it would not be a place we would return to.
How to review the perfect hotel? It's actually quite easy... just go and experience the Six Senses on Con Dao Island!
From the booking-process, over the airport pickup, the relaxed checkin until the great villas with breathtaking view, the food in the restaurants and the overall hotel-area.... everything was perfect! But the highlight of Six Senses Con Dao are the people there, that make every minute a great stay. Besides the team from the Kids Club and the Earth Lab we especially like to thank our GEM, Ms Nhi. She was always around, while staying and managing everything in the background. A big THANKS!
We stayed 2 nights at a Ocean Front Duplex Villa and did not regret it. Each Villa has a private pool and we also had our own access to the fully private beach.
We were even able to support the release of some baby-turtles, which was a truly special experience.
We were very sad to leave the resort, but decided during our stay already to come back again.
Thanks again to Six Senses Con Dao!
We spent two nights at Six Senses Con Dao looking to unwind from our two week tour of Viet Nam. Con Dao Island is about an hour flight from Saigon. The resort sits on a beautiful sandy beach tucked into a hillside with a great view of the other islands. It has a "sustainability" theme. We stayed in a Deluxe Ocean Front room which had a great view, a staircase to the beach, and a small private pool. The room was comfortable and spacious, complete with a huge bath tub and an outdoor shower. This is a totally relaxing, though secluded resort. We did morning yoga classes, had massages in the spa, hiked on the beach, swam in the ocean, dined in both the beach and Vietnamese restaurants, and hung out at the bar. The included breakfast buffet is the most extensive I have seen, including a "cold room" full of fresh fruit and meats. One morning, there were complimentary head and neck massages at the end of the buffet line. There is also complimentary ice cream (6 flavors to choose from). We always end our big international vacations at island resorts, and this is one of the most beautiful and relaxing resorts we have seen. The staff is warm and accommodating. We hated to leave. Though expensive by Viet Nam standards, a similar setting would cost 3 to 4 times as much in California, and has considerably more charm. We hated to leave.
If you love to be by the beach or you just like to listen to the waves at night. This 5 star resort is the best resort to go! We got the duplex villa was a reward because the resort is like a secluded island not many people. The view is so breathtaking. It had an amazing view and the infinity pool was so beautiful I fell in love with it! Our GEM Nqoc was extremely amazing and always at our service. She always checked on us to make sure we were okay. She brought us ice for our drinks. She was also in the front when we first checked in to greet us and she was there to say good bye when we checked out! Thank you Nqoc for making sure feel at home and welcoming us during our stay!
