One could be forgiven for thinking Six Senses Ninh Van Bay is on an island, as its peninsular location means it can only be accessed by boat. Once there, as with all Six Senses hotels, expect escapism, nature and superb wines and cuisine. The villas range in size from one to three bedrooms and enjoy varying outlooks from beachfront or hillside to the stilted villas over the rocks. All have a private plunge pool, 24-hour butler service and offer total privacy. Sustainably built, the villas are made from natural materials blending in with their surroundings and offer air-conditioned bedrooms, indoor/outdoor bathrooms, day beds and mini bars. For the utmost in privacy, the Rock Retreat is a two-bedroom villa situated on its own bay, accessed via boat or private walkway.
As one would expect from a Six Senses hotel, the spa is second to none. Hidden up the hill amid lush jungle and accessed via stepping stones, treatments range from traditional Vietnamese remedies to wellness programmes. Yoga and a jungle gym circuit are available to those who feel the need to be active. For watersports enthusiasts, kayaks and stand up paddle boards are complimentary and chargeable watersports include hobie cat, wakeboard, water skis, mono skis and tubing. Landlubbers can hike the variety of jungle trails along the peninsula and castaway picnics can be arranged at nearby beaches. Kids will be kept happily engaged at Sub Club with plenty of indoor and outdoor activities lead by energetic staff.

WINE AND DINE
Three restaurants and two bars provide plenty of variety and one can expect fresh seafood, meats and organic produce grown in the resort’s own garden. Restaurant locations are by the bay, on the rocks and by the pool and private experiences can be arranged in the privacy of your own villa or in the Wine Cave.
