“Every award bestowed upon Six Senses Ninh Van Bay is a testament to the continuous efforts to constantly live and implement the values and vision that Six Senses brand embraces and offers to our hosts and guests. Receiving the prestigious Team of the Year Award for the second consecutive year at the gala event in London on April 3, 2022 makes us proud and excited. Our entire team, and especially the Spa hosts, are deeply touched and honored by this recognition. If recent months have shown us anything, it’s the importance of a multi-faceted approach to wellness. We place huge emphasis on physical, mental, emotional and environmental wellbeing. We strive to set the highest benchmark in providing transformative and meaningful wellness experiences that help our guests to reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them. The award couldn’t be timelier as Vietnam has recently reopened to International Guests from March 16, 2022” said General Manager Andrew Whiffen.
Launched in 2012, the World Spa & Wellness Awards recognize and reward the work that Spas do around the globe, honoring Hotel and Resort Spas in all regions. One of the leading honors in the industry, the Awards acknowledge excellence of care, service and standards, aiming to inspire Spas around the world and raise global industry standards. The Awards continue to gain momentum, with over 150 high quality entries last year. Organized by UK-based Professional Beauty Group, who have managed Spa and Beauty awards and exhibitions for the past 30 years, the World Spa & Wellness Awards incorporates a thorough and independent judging process in which all spas are assessed by experienced industry professionals.
Six Senses Spa at Ninh Van Bay is a sanctuary for all the senses. Surrounded by lush tropical jungle and cascading streams. The Spa offers both traditional Vietnamese and Six Senses signature treatments as well as customized Yogic wellness programs available to suit individual guest’s needs. In addition to the breathtaking treatment rooms where guests feel at one with nature, the spa is equipped with a flying yoga pavilion, state-of-the-art fitness center, spa retail gallery and outdoor jungle-gym training circuit. Wellness goes well beyond the natural confines of the Spa where guests can meditate and practice tai chi on the resort’s private beach or try yoga on a paddleboard that builds strength, flexibility and focus.
Guests can also join an interactive wellness workshop at the Alchemy Bar to learn how to make body scrubs, natural hair shampoo and mask, hand sanitizer and more, guided by a skilled therapist who will explain the healing properties of each of the ingredients freshly picked from the organic garden. The Resort also has an Alembic that produces essential oils for the Spa using kumquats, eucalyptus and lemongrass grown at the organic garden as well as orange peels discarded from the kitchen. The peels, which are otherwise hard to compost due to the high content of oil, are collected and the oil is extracted in the Alembic.
For those who want to go deeper and understand more about their wellbeing, the Wellness Screening provides the latest intel on what’s going on inside them. Performed by the only Vietnamese-speaking wellness expert within the Six Senses group, the screening analyzes key physiological biomarkers of health, including body composition, metabolism, oxygen distribution, heart function, circulation and stress parameters. The results are used to prepare a personalized wellness program specific to each individual’s needs.
There is also a wide range of multi-day Integrated Wellness programs from three to seven days which address the most common modern concerns. The Sleep with Six Senses program helps guests rest the mind and rejuvenate the body by combining practical advice from sleep experts with the many benefits of yoga nidra and meditation, relaxing treatments, wellness therapies and low intensity training. The Detox program uses the non-invasive techniques of yogic cleanse to help the body detox in a safe and controlled manner in combination with cleansing therapies and sensible eating of whole foods. Improved fitness levels, toned body, higher energy levels and better mood are some of the benefits guests can enjoy when participating in the Fitness program which focuses on movement, high and low intensity training and nurturing treatments. Each of these programs starts with a wellness screening and includes personalized treatments, activities and advice on foods to favor and avoid during the stay and beyond.
