Evoke the Sense of Tet 2021
Con Dao, Vietnam – January 2021: Six Senses Con Dao prepares to bid farewell to the Year of the Rat and welcome in the Year of the Ox with hopeful greetings. A teeming host of activities are ready for those looking for an exclusive tropical island resort to spend the very first days of the new Lunar Year with families and loved ones.
Start the day by hopping on the speedboat and set sail to some of the most stunning snorkel spots with colorful coral reefs around Con Dao or grab a fishing rod and showcase your reeling skills. For those that prefer a little morning stretching, the yoga classes offer several exercises that fill up energy for the whole day and allow a photo opportunity of that perfect yoga pose for Instagram. Others can just laze around and relax on the beach or by their private villa pool, basking in the first sunshine of the Lunar New Year.
Children will enjoy a variety of complimentary workshops, such as creating art from tree leaves to making traditional face masks with recycled paper, which not only helps them develop a sense of love for nature, but also guarantees fun for all. For adults, prepare to be swept off your feet, quite literally, with team sport activities such as volleyball, beach basketball, or kayak and paddle board with the waves. For more serene activities, the Spa awaits with daily meditation & therapy centered around ancient traditions, synonymous to the Six Senses brand.
Guests can end the perfect day at the Happy Tet Hour at Elephant Bar, adding to the dramatic dusk scenery with a refreshing signature cocktail, before settling down under the stars for an iconic Jungle Movie.
On New Year’s Eve, join the countdown celebrations in the quaint town of Con Dao, for a firework show and take in many traditional street activities that mark the start of the Year of the Ox on the island.
The Resorts very own Guest Experience Makers are on hand to arrange a join-in or private tour around the island including excursions to the Flower Market, Phi Yen temple, Van Son pagoda and other sacred historical sites for those hoping to pray for health and good fortune for the New Year
Throughout this sacred time, the resort also invites guests to experience an authentic New Year routine with traditional Lion Dance performances, bringing smiles and luck for all the year round.
