There are a few things you should know before booking your stay at Six Senses Con Dao. First and foremost, some of the most delectable drinks and dishes you’ve ever tasted can be found here. Second, sleep is most restful following a spa visit and when one’s bed is surrounded by sand, sky, and ocean. Third, returning to “real life” after a vacation here will be extremely difficult.

Con Dao has been designed with an extremely low ecological footprint in order to support and protect the environment. 50 villas line a mile of sandy beach, sheltered by hills behind and with expansive sea views. All building materials are natural, sustainable, and, whenever possible, local.

Materials and colors blend seamlessly into the terrain, designed to enhance rather than overwhelm the natural beauty of this property… So much so that you might not want to look away for fear of losing sight of this magical place by the time you return.

Con Dao is an archipelago of 15 islands located off the southern coast of Vietnam. Named after a ruthless military prison which held countless prisoners during the Vietnam War, today this remote island group promises clean beaches and coral reefs, lustrous jungles, and crystal-clear waters beyond expectation.
