- Sea View Villas
- Private Pool
Six Senses Con Dao is super luxurious exclusive, yet responsible beach resort that sets the bar for the region. The resort is set within an area of outstanding natural beauty, sat along a mile of golden sand. There are 50 villas, all of which feature a private pool and sea views. The private Dat Doc Beach stretches over 1 mile (1.6 kilometer) with crystal-blue water and a dramatic backdrop of Lo Voi Mountains.
Located off the south-east coast of mainland Vietnam, the Con Dao archipelago of 16 islands was initially settled by the British East India Company in 1702. More than 80 percent of Con Dao archipelago is a marine protected area and national park. The largest island, Con Son, which hosts Six Senses Con Dao is around 145 miles (230 kilometers) from Ho Chi Minh City and is served by Co Ong airport. It can be reached by commercial flights or chartered private plane in 45 minutes from Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City.
From single-level to duplex, and offering one, two, three or four bedrooms, all 50 villas have infinity pools and secluded outdoor bathrooms, wood panelling and natural ventilation to reduce the need for air-conditioning (although bedrooms are still air conditioned). Go for Ocean View for privacy and Ocean Front to wake up with your feet (almost) in the sparkling sea. The efficient, contemporary design uses natural ventilation for bathrooms and living areas, with bedrooms offering air-conditioned comfort. Ocean Front units all have direct beach access. Ocean View villas are located at an elevated position behind the Ocean Front units, providing beautiful ocean views while still being only a few moments' walk away from the sandy beach.
Activities include complimentary use of bicycles to explore the Island, Paddle Boards and Kayaks. There is excellent snorkelling and diving at the nearby Hon Tai and Bay Canh or Cau islands (speed boat trip). The Spa offers classic signature treatments and specialist therapies. There is a large central swimming pool with poolside service.
Located by the seafront, By The Beach offers contemporary International cuisine with a great selection of vegetarian meals, gourmet meats and seafood dishes, with a small selection of Vietnamese specialty dishes. Open from breakfast until the end of dinner service. Vietnamese By the Market offers authentic traditional Vietnamese cuisine prepared by Ms. No and her team. Ms. No is one of the local Hosts, originating from Con Dao; she has been cooking traditional and wholesome local food for many years. Located by The Market place, the Elephant Bar gives the option of light, casual dining throughout the day as well as an amazing selection of cocktails and mocktails for the day and evening. Situated by the main pool and overlooking the beach, the Splash Bar is a great spot for a daytime cocktail or sundowner, light snacks are also served during the day. Deli’cious Deli, which is located right at The Market place, offers a selection of mouthwatering super-relaxed dining options; from tapas style producers boards to delightful homemade ice creams.
Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
