The Hilltop Reserve Villa at the Six Senses Ninh Van Bay resort commands calmness. This three-bedroom villa offers 180° views of the entrancing Nan Vinh Bay, rolling mountains, and the city of Nha Trang.

It is over 7,825 square feet of tranquility with a sundeck that suits 10, exposed beam ceilings, craft furniture, and a state-of-the-art entertainment HD center. One can opt for in-house dining with the resident chef in its fully fitted kitchen—and entertain up to 10 guests in the dining area no less. For wine lovers, the villa is stocked with labels from over 30 vineyards. It further features a 24-hour a day “Guest Experience Maker” or GEM—for anything you want. Anything.

Framed with granite stones and verdant jungle, this is the most exclusive stay of their property, reached only by a long hike or dune buggy.

This globally acclaimed resort and spa brand Six Senses also offers several other villa types: Hill Top Pool Villas, Beachfront Pool Villas, Rock Pools Villas,and Water Pool Villas. In other words, get ready to get wet in either your bathing wear or birthday suit.

With maximum privacy, each villa style offers something special. For example, the Hill Top Pool Villas have an elevated bedroom with walk in closets. They’re located above the main resort on the mountain at each end of the bay with their own private paths and stairs. They have their own private plunge pool and 24-hour butler service.

The Beachfront Pool Villas also feature, clearly, a private swimming experience with plunge pools and close access to the beach. They are defined by their natural and locally sourced building materials and their lush personal gardens. The bathrooms are also private yet open-air—with their own handcrafted wooden bathtubs to boot.

Staying natural, the Rock Pool Villas are dotted amidst beautiful giant boulders at the bay’s west end. These are more secluded from the rest of the resort with their pools set into the rocks. The showers are also outdoor for rinsing and scrubbing with purity and privacy.

Outdoor showers are also had at the Water Pool Villas. These feature wooden steps leading right down to the sea—perfect for snorkel lovers. With special private decks that look right out over the bay’s coral, these split-level suites at the east end of the bay are tremendously popular.

So is this entire resort. With its close proximity to the city of Nha Trang, Ninh Van Bay is rising as a coastal hot spot. Accessed by Cam Ranh International Airport, the resort is one hour away by private car then 20 minutes by boat ride. All pick-up and departures are handled by the resort as part of booking procedures. Local transport can be hired for exploring surrounding jungles, beaches, and the history and bustle of Nha Tran city itself.

The resort is fully furnished with a gorgeous restaurant, gym and spa. They have done their all to make it eco-friendly too.

Put plainly, Ninh Van Bay really does sate one’s six senses—and even a few more.
