Set on a dreamy archipelago off the southern coast of Vietnam, the Six Senses Con Dao is no ordinary island retreat. Yes, it sits on a ridiculously beautiful stretch of sand, but what really sets this hotel apart in the Six Senses portfolio is its castaway charm. It’s a 45-minute flight from Ho Chi Minh City, and the undeveloped landscape beyond the hotel’s rustic chic villas makes it a haven of rugged natural beauty. Think jungle-covered mountains, a sea brimming with turtles and barracudas, restaurants born out of centuries-old Vietnamese buildings and vestiges of the island's colonial history that you can explore. There is no central building or lobby to the Six Senses Con Dao; it’s built to emulate a traditional fishing village, albeit quite a luxurious one. Swish villas open directly to the sand, and the spa, backdropped by the Lo Voi mountains, lies at the heart of the hotel’s experience. For something less zen, there is snorkeling in the marine park, hiking through the tropical rainforest and boat trips to the uninhabited islands around. You can even try your skills at squid fishing and scuba diving. For an escape from daily life, this hotel is in a class of its own.
