Hanoi, Vietnam, March 10, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- As a former prison island, Con Dao was hell in the past, but now it’s paradise for travellers.
The Six Senses Con Dao has just opened its doors for luxury travellers. Sun, sand, sea, sounds, seafood and sightseeing… all you need for a dream vacation you can find here.
Resting in the quiet waters of the Eastern Sea, the Con Dao archipelago remains a little-known gem, 180km off the coast of Southeast Vietnam.
Swathes of white sand form breeding grounds for turtles and visiting dugong herds, while the inland teems with bird life and the chatter of monkeys and squirrels.
Six Senses has chosen Con Son Island as the location of its next Hideaway resort for this unspoilt beauty and ecological opportunities. The island covers an area of 70sqkm with 5,000 inhabitants. The pristine Dat Doc beach lies 8km from Con Son Airport, in a national park encompassing both marine and terrestrial resources.
The caress of a warm sea breeze, an exotic fruit cocktail by your side and the lulling sound of waves on the shoreline: barefoot tourism has brought new demands for impeccable standards in exotic, far flung destinations, standards that Evason Hideaway resorts can deliver.
Con Dao will be the sixth Evason Hideaway resort, the boutique category of the luxury Evason brand. Each Hideaway combines the intrinsic values of the destination with the height of luxurious, contemporary lifestyle.
Con Dao will take the usual Evason eco-friendly philosophy a few footsteps further, and lead a new style of environmentally sustainable resort, from construction materials to energy-saving wizardry.
“Vietnam, an exotic destination, appeals with authentic interactions in an unspoilt environment. Travel agents will need to get to grips with the geography and logistics of Vietnam, it's very long coastline and the practicality of combining cities and attractions to create realistic itineraries for clients. We are seeing interest in the An Lam Ninh Van Bay villas near Nha Trang. Hyatt Regency Danang, Intercontinental Danang Resort, Fusion Maia Resort Hoian, Ana Mandara Hue. The next upcoming destination in Vietnam is the archipelago of Con Dao where Six Senses has developed a resort,” said David Nguyen, Sales and Marketing Manager of Luxury Travel Ltd.
