Six Senses Facts

Six Senses

From its beginnings in 1995, Six Senses quickly became recognized as the hospitality industry’s pioneer of sustainable practices, demonstrating that uncompromisingly gorgeous hideaways can live in harmony with local communities and ecosystems.

Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas are discovered in some of the world’s most unique and beautiful places. Whether on a remote private island or in an exciting urban setting, the touch-points are always decidedly the same. And while being part of the local fabric and culture, Six Senses is very much in tune with the wider world. It offers crafted guest experiences to stimulate, energize and revitalize the human spirit, delivered by global experts from a wide range of backgrounds.

Six Senses resorts are intimate, offering an emotionally intelligent approach to service that begins with empathy. The Six Senses aesthesis has a touch of quirkiness, which supports delightful and unexpected surprises, delivered out of constant curiosity and willingness to challenge the norm. The responsible and caring attitude of Six Senses is intrinsic to the brand and extends to employees and local communities in which Six Senses operates. It is committed to preserving the environment through sustainable operations, guided by overarching goals and values.

As Six Senses expands into new and exciting locations, the enduring Six Senses purpose remains as strong as ever: To help people reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them. 

Six Senses is committed to sustainability and its obligation to the environment and the community. Widely recognized as having established the initial benchmarks for the hospitality industry showing that a leisure lifestyle could be successfully embraced by the very top tier of resorts, Six Senses has shown that it is possible to enhance the guest experience by showing respect to nature.

Being located in places of great beauty and close to nature, Six Senses resorts often have biodiversity opportunities to preserve, protect and rebuild environments that range from coral reefs to lush jungle. Each resort demonstrates an unswerving commitment to protect endangered species on land and in water. Six Senses deals only with suppliers who share this commitment. 

EAT WITH SIX SENSES

Eat With Six Senses is another pillar of the Six Senses Integrated Wellness philosophy and approach to food and drink – to ensure guests always leave feeling better than when they arrived. It is based on the guiding principles of natural ingredients, local and sustainable, and less is more, helping guests to reconnect with food safe in the knowledge that it’s good for them and good for the world around them.

Chefs indulge their love for hearty and healthy menus full of color, taste and joy, while unapologetically avoiding the bad stuff (flavor enhancers, lectins, lactose, gluten and sugar). Instead they choose the ingredients and preparation methods that promote a healthy microbiome (the trillions of tiny gut buddies living in the body) to offer better digestion and absorption of nutrients while boosting the immune system. 

SPA AND WELLNESS

Six Senses Spas offers a layered approach to wellness that unites a pioneering spirit with holistic wellness, rejuvenation and beauty treatments that go beyond ordinary.

This intuitive mix of science and human awareness results in high-tech and high-touch therapies that guide guests on a personal path to growth and reconnection, taking them as deep as they want to go.

The overarching philosophy, Six Senses Integrated Wellness, is founded on several building blocks, including sleep health, eating wholesome food and personalized wellness. The latter is for guests who want to venture out a bit further and discover more about their health. A non-invasive screening measures key physiological markers, and the results enable Six Senses wellness experts to provide lifestyle and nutritional advice, and design a personal program of spa treatments, yoga, fitness and wellness activities based on the preventative principles of Eastern medicine and results-oriented Western influences.

The programs help to address the most common concerns around digestion, weight loss, elimination of built up toxins, weakened immune system, sleep, stress relief, muscle toning or building better stamina. They also help guests achieve their full potential should they wish to be challenged and improve their current performance.

SLEEP WITH SIX SENSES

Sleep With Six Senses has been developed in close collaboration with internationally renowned Sleep Doctor Michael J. Breus Ph.D. It starts with an online questionnaire allowing a dedicated Sleep Ambassador to understand the relationship a guest has with sleep, and fine-tune the guest bedroom, bedding and linens to ensure all preferences are noted to ensure optimum sleep conditions.

Building upon these quality basics, guests who wish to learn more about improving their quality of sleep can upgrade their sleep experience. This includes a selection of specially developed and sourced sleep aids, professional guidance, and a personalized program of spa treatments and activities.

Before they depart, each guest is provided with sleep tips and details on how to purchase any of the products they used during their stay to prolong their quest for a good night’s rest when home. 

GROW WITH SIX SENSES

Well-being is not just for grownups. Grow With Six Senses incorporates the six dimensions of wellness (social, environmental, physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual) so kids can reconnect with nature and others around them. The focus is on out-of-the-ordinary experiences: everything from the active (flying yoga, organic gardening, cooking workshops) to the relaxing (spa treatments, simple meditation, singing bowl workshops) and the creative with a local twist (Vietnamese origami, Portuguese tile painting, basic Arabic).
