Our six days at this total paradise on earth were so heavenly, we tried to prolong, but unfortunately couldn't change our bookings. When we return, we will definitely book for eight nights at least.
Our villa, the hill top 8, is a bit of a walk, (and a beautiful one along a small path in a jungle) but guaranteed total seclusion, and perfect for us, wishing to escape from all the burdens of our very people oriented work. We were virtually alone in a garden of Eden, in a villa with a breathtaking view of the China Sea, the long white beach, the bay and faraway island, with the movement of the local fisher boats going out to sea at sunset.
Our villa consisted of a large lounge and dining area, by great big bay windows, a private swimming pool and deck chairs, and a larger bedroom villa up three stairs, with a king size bed also overlooking the bay and sea, a desk, a sitting area and a large bathroom with huge tub and two Italian showers, one outside in the woods carved into the hill stone, the other inside. No need for air conditioning, the ocean breezes maintain a constant temperature of around 25 degrees.
Every morning, we would walk down the picturesque path towards the ocean, there pick up our bicycles and cycle through the gardens to the restaurant, where an incredibly generous and varied breakfast buffet provided all we needed for the day. Then return, after a morning swim and snorkeling, to our private villa. It was total relaxation, so much so that we didn't have time or the desire to explore the many activities or indulge in the other experiences the island has to offer, which is why I definitely recommend a longer stay.
Our personal butler Thay and the General Manager Gary, the F&B manger Gary (great selection of wines by the way) as well as all the staff, are incredibly friendly and helpful too.
At this stage, we really are not interested in exploring other holiday destinations, we just want to return to Ninh Van Bay Six Senses for our next yearly holiday!

Room Tip: If you have children, then the beach villa, otherwise definitely rock or hill top, totally secluded and private

We stayed at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay for the 3rd time over Tet and cannot rate it highly enough. As expats in Vietnam or elsewhere in Asia, it is a wonderful place to escape. From the moment you are greeted at the airport you can be assured that your every wish will be catered for in a prompt, professional and smiling manner by the wonderful staff and management. On a previous trip we had a serious medical emergency and the butlers and resort management went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we were well taken care of.
The atmosphere of the resort is stylish but relaxed and a barefoot walk along the beach each day to a delicious breakfast or evening cocktail overlooking the stunning bay and hills is a daily treat. The smiling, helpful staff are always warm and helpful toward our children, who thoroughly enjoy baking cookies with the chef and other activities.
We really appreciated the attention to detail in things such as personalised wooden name plates on our bicycles, the offer of breakfast when we arrived early and breakfast being provided when we needed to leave the resort early to catch a flight.
Highly recommend this most scenic, relaxing and professionally managed resort as my favourite in Vietnam.

Great Resort, fantastic food, very friendly people, a place to hideaway for some while

Great friendly service that aims to please. Very good spa and food. Lovely Bungalows unless the weather gets really windy and rainy in which case u appreciate the excellent Wifi everywhere. And the cable channels. The place is wearing down a bit and you have to ride a rusty bike to get around (unlessnyou call your personal butler for a golfcart ride). As access is byboat you can feel stranded in unfavorable weather. Appreciated the eco-friendly approach, herb garden and organic light food on offer.

Room Tip: Beach Villa with direct access to beach if you like to sleep to the sound of the surf

Dear Voyageuse54,
Thank you for posting your kind review on TripAdvisor. I am delighted to hear your positive feedback about your stay with us in December besides the unexpected inclement weather situation.

I have noted your comment in regards to the rusty bicycle you had kindly pointed out and would like to apologize for the inconvenience. In fact we have just recently replaced most of the old bicycles. By the way our Chief Engineer has prioritised a maintenance plan with the effort to constantly improve and enhance our product and standard.

We do hope to welcome you back at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay or our other Six Senses properties in the near future.

With kind regards,
Garry Chan
