The free Sub Club kids' club operates all day from 9am to 5pm, is run by qualified staff, and welcomes all ages. It's equipped with a soft corner, games, DVDs, arts and crafts, a Wii console and DVDs.
The kids' club organises a raft of activities: painting, drawing, watching movies, cookie making, ping pong, and more. Outdoor options include mini gardening sessions, sandcastle competitions, football, beach games, snorkelling, eco tours of the reef with a glass-bottomed boat, treasure hunts, sporting events and junior fashion parades. Kids can also escape to the spacious, beach-facing play house (conveniently located near Dining by the Bay restaurant, in case they want to get up after a meal) or the Pirates' Lair, an alfresco adventure playground, near Dining by the Pool, which includes a fun ship, monkey bars and picnic tables.
All villas come with a plunge pool. The main pool has a shallow end perfect for mini Smiths.
All the restaurants have children's menus, and the kitchen is happy to heat milk and baby food as required. High chairs are provided, and the resort can make packed lunches for little ones to order. During peak season, Six Senses can also offer special dining distractions for kids, including open-air movie nights with pizza and tented beach camp barbecues with a fire and live guitarists.
Available for US$10 an hour in-villa or after kids' club hours (the free Sub Club runs from 9am to 5pm). Private in-villa babysitters may require a two-hour break at noon.
No need to pack
Cots are provided free but request one when booking.
The double day-bed in your villa can be converted into an extra bed for two children, but please let the resort know when booking. The Hilltop, Water and Rock villas are less suitable for very young kids or the physically challenged, due to their locations on the hillside or stony water's edge of the resort.
Six Senses Ninh Vanh Bay has a very green outlook. When building the resort, they kept as much of the surrounding nature as the could, including many of the trees that were on the site. They also plant new trees, clean the beach and remove anything that could harm the coral reefs. Organic waste is composted and used in the vegetable garden, which is watered with wastewater. All the bath products are eco-friendly, too.
