10 thoughts on “Six Senses Con Dao: An Island Getaway”

  1. I can relate to how you felt about going to Con Dao as a relief to your wanderlust. The pandemic has been going on for two years now and those who used to travel a lot certainly felt the impact of being contained to their own city. Con Dao looks spectacularly beautiful! (this is coming from someone who’s from a country with some of most beautiful beaches in the world). And from the look of it, Six Senses did manage to balance natural preservation and providing modern comforts for its guests. Impressive!

    1. It is! And I would love to come back for the turtles 😛 The island itself is another reason to return. On this trip, I could only see the stretch between airport and the resort.

      We MIGHT travel outbound again this year as the gov intend to fully open in April. But the painful PCR test is still a deterrent for me. Makes my nose itching the whole day 🙂 Does Indonesia have any plan to re-open? I know Bali is opened, but there is currently no info about the rest of the country.

      1. A few days ago Bali finally saw its first international flight again after two years. Before that, foreign visitors could still come to Indonesia but only via Jakarta or the Riau Islands (to cater those coming by boat from Singapore), with mandatory quarantine in respective city/island. Plus, now a visa is required which is a contrary to how it was before the pandemic where Indonesia was very much visa-free to citizens from most countries.

        But somehow I am feeling optimistic that we can start traveling abroad again this year (at least among Southeast Asian countries first).

      2. Haha, I nearly forget about the visa. Have not touched my passport for over 2 years. I renewed it in Jan 2020 and it is completely blank 🙂

      3. Similar story here. I renewed mine at the end of 2019, used it once to Hong Kong in December 2019, and since then it’s been sitting in my drawer. 😀 The thing is Hong Kong stopped stamping people’s passport since several years back. So mine is as clean as new.

  2. What an absolutely beautiful place. I can see why it was just the perfect place to go to get the feel of travelling again, however briefly. Your photos, as always, are gorgeous.

  3. So happy for you that you got to go on a trip after so long, Len. It sounded like you savoured every moment from the time you left. I haven’t experienced an open plan bathroom but it sounds cool. It’s lovely to hear Con Dao and the villa you stayed at work hard towards sustainability, especially the preservation of endangered green sea turtles. Maybe one day you can go back in the summer and witness the main hatching season. That picture of the rice at the end looks very good. What was it? Hope you get to travel more this year 🙂

    1. Thank you, Mabel 🙂 I do hope that I can use my passport this year. I renewed it in 2020 and haven’t used it since then.

      Regarding the dish, it is the savory sticky rice – a popular breakfast item. I can replicate this dish at home. But not the chef’s special sauce 😛

      1. Hopefully we all get to travel this year. It will be a much more complex process, but I guess you can still enjoy the journey. Okay so that was the sticky rice. It didn’t look sticky in your photo. Seems like a special dish 🙂
