At a small resort in southern Vietnam eco-fashionistas and eco-travel addicts can stimulate their senses the sustainable way. The Six Senses Ninh Van Bay named for the little bay it sits on, is likely one of the most stunning eco-friendly Vietnamese properties around.
We happen to think almost every Six Senses property is top notch and noteworthy for their expansive views, natural decor, and fine attention to luxe detail. Traditional Vietnamese architecture of stone and natural wood with gauzy white fabric flowing throughout blend seamlessly into the rugged rocky landscape with 58 villas of varying sizes, from the Hill Top Villas high on the hill to the sprawling Presidential Villa.
However, their attention to sustainability doesn’t stop with locally sourced materials. All aspects of energy efficiency, water conservation, waste reduction, fair-trade and local community building are part of the agenda and you can feel it in the staff who all feel personally tied to the success of each locale.
For this, we give it a 10 out of 10.
Now we’re just trying to decide when to find the time off. Snow in NYC is fading into rain and Vietnam is sounding better and better every day!
