Luxury resort operator Six Senses has unveiled a major expansion drive that will see it add new hotels, clubs and spas in six countries across the Asia Pacific region.
The Bangkok-based company will open its first properties in Bhutan, China, Indonesia and Taiwan over the next three years, while also opening two clubs in India and a spa in Kazakhstan. The company is also launching new resorts in French Alps, North Africa and the Caribbean.
“The rapid brand expansion of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas ignited in Asia, Europe, Northern Africa and the Caribbean allows us to redefine ourselves on a global scale with the addition of our first ski resort, first urban hotel and two amazing resort projects located at UNESCO World Heritage Sites,” said the company’s CEO, Neil Jacobs.
“At the core of our DNA is creating unique hotel experiences that are located in untouched, pristine locations supported by sustainable development and culturally-sensitive design aesthetics. Our vision for growth is anchored in a dynamic and thoughtful approach to the science of wellness.”
The expansion will start this month with the opening of the first Six Senses spa in Kazakhstan. The Six Senses Spa at Esentai Tower will be located in Almaty, offering five treatment rooms, a lounge, juice bar and fitness centre.
In terms of hotels, the new developments will include Six Senses’ first two properties in China. Opening in 2014 will be the Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain, a 113-suite and -villa property in Sichuan province. This will be followed by the 129-villa Six Senses Ninghai in eastern China’s Zhejiang province, which will be located on the site of a natural hot spring.
Six Senses will also be making a dual entry into India, with two new clubs in the state of Maharashtra. In Mumbai, the Six Senses World One club will be spread over three floors, featuring restaurant concepts, meeting rooms and spa facilities. And in the city of Pune, the Evason Pune Belmondo club project will include two restaurants, a meeting room, banquet hall, games rooms, library and health club facilities.
Two new Asian resort properties will open in 2016, in Bhutan and Taiwan. Six Senses Bhutan will feature 82 suites divided between five lodges, while Six Senses Wuma will be located at the base of Medicine Mountain in southeast Taiwan, featuring 50 suites and villas.
Finally in Bali, Six Senses Uluwatu will be set on a cliff-top on the southern tip of the island, and will feature 120 suite and villas.
Once complete, this expansion will double Six Senses’ Asia Pacific portfolio from five hotels and resorts today to 10 by 2016.
