“A world away from reality!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We spent a much too short 3 nights in a hillside villa. It was a magical and relaxing stay in a special and unique place.

We stayed in villa number 7 and found it perfect for the start of our honeymoon. It was spacious, comfortable and private. Views to die for from every vantage point - infinity pool, lounge, bedroom, outside shower ( there is also an inside one). We really loved laying back in the deep bath with a glass of champagne just soaking in the view. The six senses website photos probably didn't do it justice.

The facilities and level of service were exceptional! Our butler Tran was always there when needed but also gave us space. Without exception the staff were wonderful. Courteous, prompt, helpful & respectful! They are a credit to their brand. GM Garry was also on hand to welcome and farewell every guest and goes out of his way to make sure every guest experience is positive.

The resort is fairly large and bikes are provided to get around. If you are not bike adept (which we were not) your butler is always available to ferry you from one side of the resort to the other. Tran was always there within minutes no matter what the time. A word of caution though some of the villas are remote and require you to walk up and down numerous stairs. I did not count them but I read in an earlier review over 100. This was not a major issues for us but could be if you were not active.

We highly recommend the spa and the gym. Exhilarating treatments and a good range of equipment for a hotel gym. We really enjoyed the trek to a nearby secluded beach. It was a challenging hike - climbing over rocks, using ropes etc... - but was rewarded with a picnic breakfast on you very own private beach.

Of course, paradise comes at a price. The resort is very expensive by Vietnamese standards. However, not expensive by western standards. Great for a special occasion or event.

I cannot speak highly enough of this incredible resort. I only wish it was closer to the US so we could go back soon. We travelled with our 3 kids (8,11 and 13) and we all had the most incredible time. From the moment we arrived to be met by the lovely GM Gary off the boat to our departure we always felt totally looked after. Everyone is assigned a butler (we love Katie!!) who despite looking after multiple guests always seems to be there whenever you ned them. The beach is gorgeous and the snorkelling was lovely with a hugh variety of fish. The food was wonderful, with the included breakfast buffet being the best we have very come across. Our youngest daughter enjoyed the kids club and the movies on the dock were a lot of fun. We started in a beach villa which was 2 story and very comfortable and a great option with kids as you have the option of both the private plunge pool and the beach. For our last couple of days we upgraded to the Rock retreat which is like something out of a James Bond movie. Access is via speedboat or a longish walk so the beach villa was more practical with kids although having our room service lunch arrive by speed boat never got old. We'll be back!!

Room Tip: Beach villas are great for families. The Rock Retreat or a rock villa would be my choice for a roman...

Xin chao Camilla B,

Firstly, thank you for spending time to share your experience at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay!

We are truly happy that all the family included the youngest enjoyed the stay. We totally agree with you that if you travel with kids, two bedroom Beach villa is the most comfortable. It is spacious enough with the sea from few steps far away from the private pool. In addition, our Sub club-designated to our young clients, are always ready to make them skillfully busy. They will never feel bored with Anna from the Sub club.

Dear Camilla, it is so delighted to hear that you loved your last days at the Rock Retreat. James Bond is a movie series which means you should not watch only one film. ;)

Please know that we are impatient to welcome you back.

With sunny and warm regards,

The Management team

We travelled with two 7 year olds and they absolutley loved their time there. From the private pool at the beach front villa to the Mosquito nets over their bed making them feel like princesses. The buggies that the staff use to drive you around are very handt even tho everything is close by. Mark and the team couldn;t have been more welcoming. Although we had the children with us, we saw many couples heading off for romantic boat rides or BBQ's on secluded beaches and there was an array of water sports to suit all types. the children loved snorkelling over the private coral reef and kayaking in the calm bay. adults or couples could be seen taking jet ski's out (far enough away so no noise). The food at the restaurants was fantastic and eating in the villa was easy and convenient and always turned up hot (unlke most hotels) because of the use of the insulated buggies. I will and am telling all my friends about this paradise and would love to come back one day. Maybe :) I can dream.

Room Tip: Beach front for the kids, rock villas of you're a couple and agile.

It begins with the lovely boat ride to the island...your arrival is met with a welcome refreshment and the pure beauty that surrounds you. The villas are breathtaking - quiet, exclusive, and peaceful, with amazing views of the beach and the sunset. The ocean is at your doorstep, and the breezes are so cooling. The food is skillfully presented and combines a wonderful tapestry of flavors and tastes. Wish we could come back every year!

Room Tip: The Water front villas are enchanting - access to your own infinity pool or the ocean..your choice...

The resort is in an island. It is well designed. The services and food are excellent.
After the meal, the chef came our and asked for opinions. All the staff including the workers are very friendly. The villa by the beach is the best place for vacation.

Myself and my girlfriend Anna spent a week at this amazing beach resort in April. It consists of a horseshoe cove with a series of incredible beach apartments dotted along it. The beaches are of fine sand, and the water is clear and warm, with amazing corals below.

On arrival we were greeted by Gary, the manager, who surprised us by helping us off the boat and taking our luggage. We didn't know he was the manager until he later introduced himself! He was a very gracious host, a hardworking guy who took time to talk to us and other guests, and make sure we had everything we needed.

Vietnamese food is amazing, and this place had a first class selection of the very best dishes. Our breakfasts lasted almost 2 hours, and we ate too much, but we didn't care, as we were happy sitting in the restaurant overlooking the bay.

The beach outside our villa was deserted and unspoilt — our own personal paradise - it seemed. We sat under the sun loungers thinking how lucky we were to be there, enjoying one of the top resorts on the planet.

Dear Ben A,

Sunny greetings from Ninh Van Bay!

Thank you very much for your review! It is great to learn that you had such a memorable experience with us. We believe that Gary is very happy to read you as well.

Dear Ben A, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we are sincerely glad that you love the Vietnamese cuisine. Maybe next time, you would enjoy learning how to make the famous Vietnamese hand rolls/spring rolls under the shade of our organic garden and with the ingredients freshly picked-up from there.

In addition, thank you for your compliment addressed to our "unspoilt" beach. It is our pride and hence responsibility to preserve this "paradise".

May we ask you more details about the villa, as you only rated it 3/5? We are striving to improve our guest experience and we will try our best to achieve.

Please let us know if there is anything we can assist you on your next visit. We can be reached at reservations-ninhvan@sixsenses.com.

Having completed a month of travelling & trekking in Nepal & Bhutan the Six Senses Ninh Van Bay was exactly what I needed. Having previously travelled Vietnam in past years the whole purpose of my stay was to relax, and relax I did!

As soon as I arrived in Nha Trang via flight there was already a resort representative waiting by the luggage area in the airport who escorted me to the awaiting van then was presented with a cold towel & bottled water. From that point I didn't have to worry about my luggage as the resort staff took care of it all the way to the villa. Upon arrival at the Six Senses port I was escorted into the boat transfer waiting area & served tea. The location is perfect and away from the hustle & bustle of Nha Trang via 15-20min boat transfer. On arrival at the resort itself I was greeted by the resort manager & introduced to my butler that was tending to me during my stay. At that point my butler drove us via golf cart to the beach villa & gave me an overview of the amenities offered within the villa & resort events that were happening. For myself at that point of my vacation all I wanted was to relax by my pool/beach & order room service everyday, I did exactly that. Breakfast was amazing with freshly baked croissants and other pastries, freshly squeezed juices, made to order eggs, loads of goodies to many to name & absolutely love love the Vietnamese iced coffee (usually would have 3 glasses, sometimes 4). Also did the detoxification package at the spa which was bliss, in the packaged it also included a flower bath that has tea & fruit laid out for you to enjoy while bathing.

The beach villa's are awesome and offer everything you could possibly need, neat indoor/outdoor bathroom, wifi, tea/coffee/espresso maker, kettle, bottled water, wine fridge, mini bar, lots of towels & a extremely comfortable bed. Also with the beach villa there is direct access to the beach which I also walked along in the mornings to go for breakfast. Room service was great every time & always brought warm bread to accompany your meals, loved it.
Six Senses Ninh Van Bay was perfect after schlepping & hiking in the Himalayas, I will definitely be returning.
