Star-studded Resort

Writer Véronique Lo | May 27, 2014

After 12 months of planning and construction, the pristine haven of Six Senses Con Dao is now home to the first Astronomical Observatory in the southernmost region of Vietnam. The private Observatory is equipped with a Maksutov- Cassegrainian 127mm telescope, which allows up to 30 guests at the resort to admire celestial highlights like Saturn, Venus, Jupiter and the moon’s surface at each private or complimentary stargazing session. The imaginative project originated from celebrity astronomer Dr Parag Mahajani, who visits the resort several times a year and hosts talks and slideshows on astronomical observations, morning solar observation sessions and exclusive zodiac dinners during his stay.
