The Turtle Season - Endless activities from May through September

The Turtle Season

Endless activities from May to September

Not only is there the thrilling experience of getting up close to one of nature’s miracles, there are so many other activities this season. From open-air movies, cooking classes and fascinating excursions, to morning yoga, spa discounts and much more.

A Nation's Treasure
Protected and cherished - Con Dao Island boasts lush verdant jungle. Above and below the azure waters and sandy beach waits a new world. It is here that you find the country’s protected turtle community. Jade-coloured jungle and mischievous monkeys accent their long journey home to nest and hatch. You can be part of nature’s miracle this Turtle Season.

Turtle Nesting & Release
From May through September, green sea turtles return to beaches in Con Dao to lay their eggs. Join us on a nightly tour to the nesting grounds where you will experience this spectacle of nature first hand. From mid-August, the eggs laid by mother Green Turtles start to come to the surface.

Join one of our early morning trips to release the hatchings as they start their life’s journey. Nature is capricious and turtles may not always nest or hatch on some nights. Reserve 24-hours in advance for these activities.

Your Villa, Your Element
This season also offers so much more for visitors. Every villa at Six Senses Con Dao enjoys privacy, great views, and its own private pool. In the intimacy of your villa enjoy spa treatments, in villa barbecues, a lazy Champagne breakfast… so many choices.

Six Senses Spa
Start your day with a complimentary morning group yoga class at Centre Your Senses, located in the spa. Sessions start at 8:30 am. Indulge your body to one of Six Senses Spa therapies and enjoy a 20% discount on spa treatments throughout Turtle Season.

Escape the Rush, and follow the "Rules"
Enjoy the sunrise, build a sandcastle, take long walks, look for seashells; take an afternoon nap, play in the waves, read a good book and watch the sunset. Relax; Refresh; Renew.
