Location and Accommodation facilities
Con Dao is the name of an archipelago comprising 16 islands of varying sizes, located in East Sea (Vietnam). However, Con Dao has developed a diverse range of accommodation facilities to cater needs of tourists. Accommodation options are abundant, spanning from mini hotels and homestays to luxurious hotels and private pool villas.
You should be aware that Con Dao is the name of an archipelago comprising 16 islands of varying sizes, with only the largest one (Con Son Island) being inhabited. The other islands are mostly small, lack freshwater sources and there are no residents living there. A few of these 15 islands are solely inhabited by individuals carrying out official duties.
If you prefer tranquility, you may consider staying at two resorts on opposite ends of Con Son Island: Poulo Condor Boutique Resort & Spa (nearly Co Ong Airport) and Orson Resort (nearly Ben Dam port). These are both 4-star equivalent resorts offering a serene ambiance and excellent service quality. Both are located approximately 13km away from the center of Con Son town. Because they are situated far from populated areas, these resorts guarantee peace and privacy while maintaining high service standards. The only inconvenience of these two locations is that you’ll spend time and money on transportation to reach the central part of Con Dao, where most of the island’s activities are concentrated.
