Six Senses brings families into focus

Many of the families who visit Six Senses are well-traveled, with the children craving as much variety and adventure as the parents.

BANGKOK – A family vacation is a great way to push the reset button away from the everyday “time to get up, go to bed” routine, to share new experiences and rebalance what’s important, or not, once home. Many of the families who visit Six Senses are well-traveled, with the children craving as much variety and adventure as the parents. That’s why every detail is carefully considered – from facilities to programming and extra space.

Vooc Village and Water Reserve at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay

Named after the Vietnamese langur and resort mascot, the Vooc Village keeps its younger guests entertained, whether hanging upside down at the jungle gym, splashing around in the aqua gym, or enjoying games or craft-making in the indoor play center.

Programs encompass everything from the active (organic gardening, yoga, little mixologist, being a therapist, junior photographer) to the relaxing (foot massage, herbal ball compress, make your own body scrub), and the creative with a local twist (traditional Vietnamese origami and snacks, Hoi An lantern making and trying to play traditional Vietnamese musical instruments). Never too young to inspire a passion for protecting nature, children can build their own coral reef, be a farmer, make beeswax wraps and homemade soaps, join an essential oil workshop, and learn about langurs with the resident biologist.

While journeying through each activity, children will receive a new stamp for their passport, which they receive on arrival, with a final surprise for when they collect enough stamps.

The special Grow With Six Senses passport combines exploration, conservation, crafts, and sport into a fun and educational schedule that takes children to all corners of the resort; it’s the kind of program that makes you want to be a kid again. Sadly, parents cannot apply!” says General Manager Andrew Whiffen. “Vooc Village is the first of its kind in Vietnam, and our aim is to keep the kids off their screens and entertained in a more traditional way. It’s also a great way to give parents a chance to relax, recharge, and enjoy other activities at the resort.

Sleeping nine guests, the three-bedroom Water Reserve – comprising three free-standing pavilions – is set on dramatic rock formations right on the water’s edge of a private bay, with spectacular and uninterrupted sunset views. Completely secluded, the villa can be accessed by a private speedboat or walkway. An infinity-edge pool with a water slide also blends naturally with the horizon and surrounding boulders. A dedicated GEM (Guest Experience Maker) can arrange in-villa dining and spa treatments, private yoga sessions, a poolside barbecue, outdoor cinema screening, or schedule the day’s activities including snorkeling on the house reef.

Watery Delights at Six Senses Laamu

They say you can dust the sand off toes but not souls. Just some of the on-land activities at The Den include planting seeds in coconut shells, a fitness scavenger hunt, junior Zumba, healthy cookie making, face mask workshops, and a volcano explosion. Due to the location of this family-friendly resort on a private atoll, the real magic happens in the water. Budding conservationists aged six and up can complete exciting science experiments, explore the ocean in snorkeling adventures, and learn to make their own conservation videos as part of the Junior Marine Biology program.

The Family Villa offers beachfront living, with a panoramic upper deck, a personal pool, and an outdoor bathtub for fun bath times. There’s even a treetop deck offering comfortable seating, a dining area, and front row seats to keep an eye on any passing marine life too.

Wellies On and Capes Ready at Six Senses Yao Noi

Following themes of Farm, Nature and Re-creation, the three-day Junior Eco Warrior program at Six Senses Yao Noi aims to educate future changemakers through hands-on experiences and outdoor adventures. Children can collect fresh eggs, meet Kevin the goat, spend time sowing seeds, and head to the beach to learn the importance of keeping marine ecosystems clean. They can also have fun turning trash into treasure in a 3Rs Workshop and try their hand at building villas for the resort’s resident hornbills out of recycled timber.

With views overlooking the iconic limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay, the three-bedroom Ocean Retreat has the option of a connecting one-bedroom Ocean Deluxe Pool Villa.
