1. Master Chef
New skills can always be learnt at Six Senses Resorts. Try a hands-on Vietnamese cooking class held in the organic garden, before introducing the wonderful Vietnamese cuisine to your friends back home.
2. Sublime Sundowners
Treat yourself to sumptuous sunset cocktails in the privacy of your lavish villa. Accompanied by delicious canapés served on the private terrace, raise a glass as the sun sinks into the sparkling East Vietnam Sea.
3. High Tea
Served at Drinks by the Jetty, enjoy premium loose-leaf teas and delicious, freshly baked scones and cookies during High Tea, whilst soaking up picturesque bay-views.
4. The Ultimate Treat For Hands or Feet
Located in the midst of lush vegetation, Six Senses Spa is a true treat for the senses. Take time out and sip an aromatic ginger tea whilst enjoying a 60-minute manicure or pedicure of your choice.
5. Rejuvenate Your Body
Indulge with a 45-minute couple’s back and shoulder massage at Six Senses Spa. Easing muscle tension, this is the perfect remedy after a long-haul flight.
6. Guided Meditation
For a soothing meditation session, head to the Relaxation Sala located next to a peaceful waterfall. Created around the brand’s philosophy of six senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, touch and the elusive sixth sense, guided meditation relieves stress and delivers a more balanced state of being.
7. Blissful Beach Picnic
Maroon yourself on your own private, white-sand beach and enjoy a secluded picnic prepared by the in-villa dining team – the ideal setting for a romantic getaway.
8. Hiking Adventure
Climb the trails behind the property and connect with nature on a guided hike to the top of Heo Mountain, overlooking the mesmerising Ninh Van Bay. Walk past majestic waterfalls and catch glimpses of leaping monkeys and graceful sea eagles, before you reach an unspoiled beach to board a boat back to the resort.
9. Floating Farm Visit
Savour a short, scenic journey by traditional wooden boat to a floating fish and lobster farm – a huge source of income for local fishermen. Watch how nets are prepared to catch fish and lobster, and take one back to the resort for dinner, which the culinary team will happily prepare for you.
10. Bay Fishing
There are a host of exciting things to do on the water: wake up early and spend the morning with local fisherman cruising the scenic bay, learning how to hook, line and catch from the experts.
11. Skimming The Surface
Outdoor enthusiasts can choose a private water-skiing lesson as one of their sweet selections. Whether you’re a novice or refreshing your skills, 15 minutes of fun on the water will result in a true adrenaline rush.
12. Sail Away
This selection provides a special opportunity for newcomers looking to try their hand at the exhilarating sport of sailing. Cruise the papaya-green waters of the semi-enclosed Ninh Van Bay whilst enjoying a 60-minute private lesson with one of the resort’s watersports instructors.
13. Drinks Adrift
Embark on an unforgettable sea voyage along the colourful coast, sipping cocktails and savouring canapés. Toast to the sun as it slips beyond the South Vietnamese sea and enjoy the warm glow of the fiery sunset from your deck.
14. Breakfast in Bed
Enjoy the most important meal of the day in the comfort of your private sanctuary. Surprise your loved one with a gourmet breakfast, which includes juice, coffee, pastries, homemade yogurt and fresh, local fruit, delivered to your villa in a special ‘in bed’ basket.
Some of the most memorable moments can be made by exploring the local areas. If it’s a walk on either of the resort’s two beaches, a bike ride to a waterfall or a local excursion you fancy, allow the culinary team to prepare a gourmet hamper to take with you.
16. Pack and Go Laundry Service
There’s nothing worse than arriving home with a suitcase full of worn clothes. Prior to departure, allow the housekeeping team to do the dirty work for you – they will wash, press and fold your laundry so you can arrive home with fresh, clean clothes.
