Located off the south east coast of Vietnam, more than 80% of the Con Dao archipelago is a marine and national park with Con Son, the largest island in this chain, home to Six Senses Con Dao. It is a mere 45 minute plane journey from Ho Chi Minh City. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty the resort is set along a mile of golden sand, sheltered by forested mountains with the whole protected area home to many endangered and indigenous species.
Dining at Con Dao is a delightful mix of flavours and tastes. At the heart of the resort is Vietnamese by the Market where Chef No and her team cook authentic delicacies over charcoal flamed woks. Noodle, rice and soups are made to order, with cookery classes for those who wish to hone their skills. For daytime panoramic views or dinner by the moonlit sea, By the Beach offers locally caught seafood vegetables and herbs creating Asian fusion cuisine. For a lighter snack head over to Splash bar located by the main pool where you can also enjoy a cocktail or sundowner. Located near the market area, Elephant Bar also serves light dishes with casual dining.
Dining is not the only experience at Con Dao; there is a wealth of other activities which will satisfy everyone. The clear water off the sandy beach is ideal for water sports with Hobie cats and surf boards available for guests to enjoy. Divers and snorkelers will be in paradise with 1300 species of sea life in the area including rare dugongs, sea turtles amid stunning coral reefs. For nature lovers rare monkeys and black squirrels may be spotted during a trek through mangroves and mystical forests while for culture buffs Con Dao has a wealth of heritage dating back to when European merchants frequented theses islands.
