Viet­nam’s Hid­den Jewel

World Travel Magazine - - Just In -

Off the south­ern coast of Viet­nam is the Con Dao Is­lands, a clan­des­tine par­adise wait­ing to be dis­cov­ered. The out­ly­ing ar­chi­pel­ago is com­prised of 16 is­lands, all of them largely un­touched and well-pre­served. Take a respite from your busy life and find so­lace in these trop­i­cal is­lands, a world away from moder­nity. The Six Senses Con Dao, the only 5-star beach re­sort in this ar­chi­pel­ago, is lo­cated on the Dat Doc Beach, a pri­vate oa­sis of hos­pi­tal­ity, a stark con­trast to the once-upon-a-time con­cen­tra­tion camp nearby. The serene lo­ca­tion fea­tures a stun­ning back­drop of the Lo Voi moun­tains, a golden sandy beach and calm, clear waters. The re­lease of sea tur­tle hatch­lings back to the ocean can be wit­nessed around April to Septem­ber. The is­land’s nat­u­ral beauty will draw you closer to na­ture with a na­tional and ma­rine park. Its lush for­est makes for an ex­cel­lent trekking ad­ven­ture as well as is­land hop­ping, just make sure to bring a lo­cal guide lest you get lost. Its ma­rine life, with pris­tine coral reefs and abun­dant un­der­wa­ter sights, is per­fect for snorkelling and scuba div­ing. The way the prop­erty blends in with the en­vi­ron­ment, be­ing con­structed of wood and bam­boo, makes it truly one with na­ture. sixsenses.com/re­sorts/con-dao
