Accommodation at Six Senses luxury resort in Vietnam
From single-level to duplex, and offering one, two, three or four bedrooms, the 50 villas at the luxury resort in Vietnam boast space and privacy, along with an uncompromising standard of luxury.
All villas have private infinity pools overlooking the ocean – go for Ocean View villas for privacy and Oceanfront villas to wake up with your feet (almost) in the sparkling sea.
The beautiful villas’ architecture reflects the same philosophy as the boutique hotel, achieving a unique environment whilst allowing the amazing natural setting to take centre stage. With a high degree of privacy, the villas’ stylized, natural simplicity is the perfect complement to the dramatic views outside.
The concept of the villas is to enhance the natural beauty of the site by having the design, layout, scale and texture of all the buildings and features fit within the existing environment and provide endless, breathtaking views.
Set sensitively within the natural slope of the dunes for the best views to the sea, each villa combines contemporary architecture with a timber frame structure. The use of a roof overhang creates shaded outdoor spaces. Designed for maximum use of natural ventilation, the villas have large openings and fluid layouts to encourage cross‐flow ventilation and catch balmy sea breezes. Only the bedrooms are air-conditioned.
The light-filled layout of expansive volumes embraces luxury with sustainability. With this superb interplay of light and space, the timber frame villas feel indigenous with airy interiors lined in teak. Four-poster beds hung with mosquito netting complete the look of upscale tropical paradise.
The 3- and 4-bedroom villas are created as pavilions with separate bedroom and living room buildings. Terraces and pathways connect the buildings.
