This isn’t the first year invited practitioners have enhanced the wellness collection at the resort. An annual occurrence, those selected for this year’s program all have one commonality: results-driven treatments. “We’ve chosen to work with practitioners who best understand our guests’ travel and health opportunities, whether they be emotional or physical,” says Spa Manager Fadi Haddad. “Some of the practitioners, like Marty (Martin Fildes) are returning due to exceptional guest testimonial. Others, such as Nimisha Rattan, are new to Six Senses Con Dao, but are tried and tested in the Six Senses Spas portfolio.
