“Exceptional resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We recently visited the Six Senses Ninh Van Bay for 2 nights. From the moment we landed in the Nha trang airport to the moment we left, we were treated to outstanding service. It's a 1 hour ride plus 20 minutes by boat and upon arrival you are greeted by the GM, Gary. he is so involved with the day to day operations of this terrific resort, it truly makes a difference.
We stayed in a beachfront villa. The design is truly unique. So simple but beautifully appointed. The bathroom is all open to the outside and the upstairs area offers gorgeous views and a wonderful place to unwind. The bedroom is air conditioned with sliding doors to your private plunge pool and a short walk right to the beach. So comfortable. The minute you get her all the stresses disappear. Each unit. Is equipped with bikes in very good condition. We have our own "butler" Luu and she was just lovely. We had very few requests but whatever it was , she can handle it.
breakfast was buffet and very very good. One night dinner was buffet with a BBQ or we could have done a la carte. The Buffett was fine but I I felt a la carte was much better. The next night we did a la carte and the meal was excellent.
We hiked one trail and it's great fun and a great workout. Lots of steep rocks! spa is very good but reservations in advance are a must.
I was surprised that the property is very family friendly and even though the hotel was 93pct full we never felt we surrounded by children. It's very spread out with lots of activities so sometimes you saw no one! The snorkeling right around the hotel is actually very good as well as the equipment.
There is so much to do or you can chose to do nothing. It really is a fantastic place. We had just come from Bangkok and Hanoi so this was a wonderful respite from all the hustle and bustle.
Again the service, food, activities, staff, and of course the villa is all top notch. Highly highly recommend this property if you are traveling in Vietnam.

You can't really describe how beautiful Six Senses Ninh Van Bay actually is until you get there. My wife and I spend 4 days a this magnificent and beautiful resort. We had a hill top villa which was perfect for us because we felt we were alone in the world. Our butler made us feel totally at home and was very helpful and kind with a great sense of humour! You should pamper yourself and your partner by going to this magnificent resort. It was nice to meet you, Gary, the day before you went to Denmark. THANK YOU SO MUCH everybody at Ninh Van Bay for making our honeymoon complete!

From the moment we set foot on the Six Senses "island" we knew that life for the few days was going to be relaxing and a real treat. We were introduced to our butler, who knew that was what was missing from my life! He drove us to to our beach villa, in a golf buggy, where we checked in-a personal touch which was much appreciated as we were a tad travel weary. The villa was literally 5 seconds from the deserted beach, a personal dream realised. The villa was perfection; out door shower, open air bathroom, a sitting room on the first floor-with a massive day bed with views over the bay, minimalist decor through out but thoughtful, innovative and very comfortable.
Each villa has bicycles - some personalised with the guest names, a small pool overlooking the beach and super comfortable loungers.
The staff were charming, friendly and couldn't do enough to help, the food was excellent and a choice of restaurants within the resort.
Ahn, our butler, completely organised our stay; making restaurant reservation, spa treatments, yoga sessions, cooking lessons and really going the extra mile by obtaining shaving foam from the mainland for my husband-an absolute star!
Although the resort was fairly full, it wasn't hard to imagine that we were on our own personal desert island as we rarely saw other guests, apart from in the restaurants.
It completed our stay in Vietnam and would return there in a heartbeat, was very sad to leave, particularly as we were waved off by the staff on our return journey to the mainland. Can't recommend it more highly.

Me and my girlfriend have just got back from Six Senses Ninh Van Bay. This is a lovely resort and truly a HIDDEN TREASURE OF VIETNAM’S COLOURFUL COAST. We stayed almost 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute. We booked a Hill Top Villa on the mountain side, it was absolutely phenomenal. We were driven to the villa on one of their buggys. The Villa was just ...WOW, it is large, clean and contain everything you could possibly want. We had our own pool with a spectacular view on the East Vietnam Sea.

The SixSenses service is worthy of a mention, it was perfection, as well as the food, and the surroundings. Special thanks to our butler Nghia and to the manager Gary Henden. The spa was the best spa experience of our life. We only have positive things to say and share about this place, you will not regret booking a Villa here!

This is my second time staying at Six Senses. I could see the improvement of services. Breakfast now has a diversity of food, from Asian to European food. When we were about to check out, the bulter ordered a free ice-cream for me. This is a small thing but it impressed me a lot.

By the way, I want to suggest about the road at night. I always get lost whenever I go around resort by night. I suggest that Six Senses need to put more road sign and more lights.

We stayed for 2 nights last weekend and wish we could stay more. It's like heaven on earth. Everything was so nice that we could barely complain. We'd like to extend our appreciation to all the staff at the resort to show great hospitality and caring. Our hill-top villa was superb - great view, big space, wooden architecture. The guy must have paid a big deal of attention to even the smallest things inside the villa. We loved the infinite private pool too.
Food was great but the menu should have more dishes for fresh seafood. If you want something special (like lobster), you need to ask the cook in advance (like a day) to prepare - understand that they need to keep them fresh. I've already left some notes on the feedback sheet that food menu should be improved for more choices. But I'm sure they would do everything to pamper you :).
Drinks (mocktail, cocktail) are excellent, except for only 3 choices of beer with ridiculously high price. Ice-cream dessert was great too, but not the sorbet - crazy sweet :(. But those drawbacks don't affect our enjoyment whilst staying at the resort at all. The experience was amazing. Thank you Six Senses NVB. We will be back and stay longer in the next visit. Ciao!

Room Tip: Hill-top room provides excellent ocean and mountain views and of course, privacy! If you'd like...

Stayed for three nights in June 2014 in a beach villa and it was superb. I loved the casual, yet luxurious, accommodation which had everything you needed. A private pool and it seemed your own private beach. The food was first class, if not expensive, and service was friendly and ultra efficient. Loved riding our bikes to breakfast with a great view each day and dinner at each of the three restaurants each night. Had one of the best massages ever at the Spa. The villas blended seamlessly with the local environment which gave it a rustic feel, but it had all the facilities you need for a fantastic, relaxing and interesting holiday. Highly recommended if you can afford it.
