I traveled to the Six Senses with my sixty year old Mom -- it was another Six Senses journey and we were curious how this property would compare to Yao Noi, which has been called by paradise by many.
We walked away feeling that is exactly on par with Yao Noi, with a more natural location and an even better staff (hard to believe).
We particularly enjoyed the seclusion of our villa (Spa Suite 5, Hilltop Villa 15) as well as our interactions with Gary, the GM, as well as our Butler. It's clear after even a few minutes that these are the type of people that you'd like to spend time with not only at the Six Senses but in your day to day life. If only Vietnam were closer to the US!
The wild butterflies and exotic birds throughout the property were spectacular.The boulders were out of this world. The early morning snorkeling (jet lag working in our favor in this category) was spectacular as there wasn't a soul on the beach.
We loved the Indochine fusion of French and Vietnamese culture, especially the champagne and brie at the breakfast buffet :)
Thank you, Gary, for a spectacular retreat! It was well worth the 35+ hour journey to get there and we will do it again!
For those who have not gone to the Six Senses, it's better than anything else out there. Forget Como or Aman, or, shudder, the Four Seasons. This is something else entirely, for those seeking eco luxe rejuvenation and reflection.
