Six Senses Resorts and Spas: Widening the Golden Footprint with New Openings
July 23, 2018 by Hidden Doorways
Six Senses luxury resorts have long been associated with pampering, wellness and exquisite design in some of the world’s most scenic natural settings. A well-known name in Asia, Six Senses has catered mostly to European markets with its unusual properties in Southeast Asia. And, as the rapidly growing portfolio of luxury resorts continues to grow in Asia, Six Senses is looking to new regions to spread its name, its brand and its message – especially to Americans seeking perfection and privacy in their holiday plans.
Six Senses Duxton: Singapore, Indonesia
In Singapore, Six Senses opened its first metropolitan property in April with the Six Senses Duxton tucked within a row of traditional shophouses in Singapore’s central Chinatown area. The new hotel has 49 guest rooms and no two rooms are the same. Accommodations offer such amenities as Naturalmat organic mattress, bathroom amenities by The Organic Pharmacy, and Bose Bluetooth speakers. The property’s sister hotel, Six Senses Maxwell, will be opening later this year within easy walking distance from the Duxton, and will boast a spa.
Six Senses Kaplankaya: Bodrum, Turkey
Six Senses opened a wellness property in May in Turkey: Six Senses Kaplankaya, with 141 rooms and suites and 154 private residences, on the country’s golden coast between historical Ephesus and lively Bodrum.
Six Senses Bhutan
In a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge called the “Happiest Place on Earth”, why stay in just one location? Six Senses Bhutan has crafted a journey that encompasses five unique experiences in five separate lodges, totaling 82 guest suites and villas. Guests may embark on a circuit around this majestic kingdom, relishing in the heritage and hospitality of Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey, Bumthang and Paro. Preparing to open in the fall 2018.
To that end, Six Senses is adding urban destination hotels to its list of mostly exotic, remote resorts. Opening in 2020 is Six Senses New York, the first Six Senses hotel in the United States, set on the westside along the city’s majestic Highline overlooking the Hudson River.
