At Six Senses Con Dao, sample Mediterranean delicacies on the main street of the communal heart of the resort, The Market Place, go on a Turtle Discovery Tour at the only national park in Vietnam that actively protects turtles, learn some tricks from visiting DJ Leon, giving classes until May 5, and stargaze with visiting astronomer Dr. Parag, going villa to villa for private sessions from Aug. 14 to Aug. 24.
If you end up missing Dr. Parag in Con Dao, you can always catch up with him at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay from Aug. 25 to Sep. 3. Or send your kids to the newly-built Pirate’s Lair while you hit hiking trails or swim, snorkel and dive in the beautiful bay waters of outlying islands and caves of the bay. Gecko, bird and monkey spotting is also on the menu.
Just across the bay is Evason Ana Mandara Nha Trang, Vietnam’s first and only beachfront resort in Nha Trang. Sail the resort’s trimaran or take a family excursion to a rural village and learn how incense sticks and conical hats are made. There’s also an onsite, PADI-certified dive centre, if you’re itching for a closer look through Nha Trang’s crystal clear waters.
