You know I love a resort ALOT when it ends up in two blog posts! Six senses Con dao is so beautiful that I just couldn't put my camera down, meaning hundreds of photos to sift through and edit to find the best ones to share with you. When I say there were literally hundreds of beautiful images that didn't make the cut, you it was something special.
After we arrived to the resort and after exploring every inch of the property, we were shown to our duplex villa.
With views of the Ocean from our pool, I might have pinched myself.
Like I said, Six senses know how to make you feel wlecome.
The cutest of details as always were here. Always locally sourced, a little piece of Vietnamese craftsmanship.
There is something about the shades of Asia that are so unique to this part of the world. They change constantly from bright blue sky's to shades of painted pastel silk that you just don't see in on other continents.
Its not everyday you get to open the shutters and watch a storm roll in from the bath with the wind in your hair. Id say that's pretty special... wouldn't you?
There is just no tiring of views like these! Utterly heavenly!
A week worth of Ocean views and rose petal baths and i'll be a new woman!
Like I said about those photos... there are more to come (forgive me)
If you follow my Instagram, you'll know that last New Year The Hub's and I travelled to Vietnam to celebrate New Year’s Eve. We have been to Vietnam before but to the centre of the country (as you know Vietnam is huge)
On a side note, I know I haven't posted the previous Vietnam trip yet but I will!
For this part of the trip (we later travelled to the little fishing village of Con Dao) we stayed at Hotel des arts Saigon... trust us to find a french themed hotel in Vietnam!
It had the cutest rooms with great views of the city. We were both so pleased we chose to stay here, it was such a lovely hotel with the most incredible roof bar with views across the city.
Despite being jet lagged Af, we got right out into the city with no time to waste to see what the city had to offer.
On first views of Ho Chi Minh City I knew I was going to really like it here. Its a crazy, energetic, engulfing place with some of the most beautiful colonial architecture iv seen anywhere, mixed in with super modern buildings. The city really is an assault the senses and quite a lot to take in.
We found a cute little cupcake cafe not far from our hotel so we stopped off to try some.
I loved the beautiful hand painted facade and inside was super cute too with hanging birdcages everywhere. A bit like a secret garden filled with cake
Everywhere we went, the streets were all dresses up ready for the New Years Eve celebrations! It was quite the spectacle.
I'll be posting more from our adventures in Vietnam later this week so don't forget to pop back over!
Also if you haven't visited Vietnam before, I found this Vietnam travel guide really helpful from a wonderful Travel blog.
Waking up at Ritz Paris has got to be way up there in my incredible moments in life memory's. If you've followed my blog for a while, you'll know that i'm a bit obsessed with hotels. Well, I only become obsessed with the good ones!
For me the perfect way to spend precious leisure time is by visiting a city I love or one that I a haven't discovered yet and might love and stay in a fabulous hotel.
After an amazing lie in, the hubs and I ordered the breakfast brunch to end all breakfast brunches! Or as I like to call them, a breakfast party.
We had planned on enjoying our final day in our suite in Paris (see part 1 and 2 here) with a slow morning and a late check out. We ordered all of our breakfast favourites, and enjoyed one of the most wonderfully indulgent breakfasts ever. The kind of breakfast you take your time over, with your favourite music playing in the background.
After all, you don't celebrate your 5th wedding anniversary everyday.
Even the fruit was served like a work of art, and i'm still dying over the most beautiful dishes it was served in.
Champagne breakfasts at The Ritz are definitely the way forward.
After breakfast I continued with an indulgent morning making the most of our final day at The Ritz. I took a leisurely bubble bath using all of my favourite Chanel products (which if i'm honest, I only bring on the more fabulous trips)
I lit my Laduree candle to set the mood and enjoyed my final glass of champagne while I thought about way to not have to leave.
After all a bathroom in shades of pink and gold with a swan faucet deserves the 5 star treatment...right?
There is something about taking the time to get ready, and luxuriating in your favourite products. Afterwards you feel rested, pampered and like a million dollars! Putting on a new outfit is the icing on the cake.

As iv said before, the problem with checking into such beautiful hotels is checking out...
Until next time Paris!
