There are a lot of good reasons why Six Senses has earned a dedicated following, and can name a host of A-list celebrities among their loyal fans. We couldn’t narrow it down to just one, so we thought we’d give you six reasons why we love staying at a Six Seasons resort.

Delicious destinations

Six Senses resorts occupy the world's most unusual, desirable, exciting and unique places. In fact, you might not even have realised that you want to go to Qing Cheng Mountain, Ninh Van Bay or Kaplankaya… yet. Each of Six Senses’ destinations have been carefully selected for their unique features, allowing you to discover some of the world’s best-hidden gems. At each location, you’re invited to awaken your senses by experiencing something different - a new way of life and, most of all, a sense of community. You could experience the mountains of Bhutan, the wilds of Cambodia or discover Fiji’s vibrant culture. Or perhaps you’ll choose somewhere closer to home, like the mountains of France or the sweeping valleys of Portugal. Wherever you go, you’re sure to return with a new sense of self and passion for adventure.

Illuminating Interiors

Experimental, playful, quirky and dynamic are just some of the words you could use to describe Six Senses’ interior designs. Carefully crafting each destination using local techniques, materials and styles, Six Senses create spaces that artfully reflect the surrounding environment, accentuated by their instantly recognisable artistic stamp. Perhaps you’ll encounter a pure white and duck egg room with an origami wasp-nest ceiling at Six Senses Krabey Island, or discover the moody spaces filled with shining blacks, golds and chromes at Six Senses Duxton. Both unique and stylish, each property shines with a creative fusion of contemporary and traditional that overflows with a sense of fun.

Seamless service

One of the ways that Six Senses inspires happiness and a contented feeling of comfort in guests is through providing service that goes vastly beyond merely remembering your name or what you dish you ordered. Aiming to achieve an emotional and personal connection with guests, Six Senses cultivate environments that make you feel at home; as though you’re being welcomed into a community. At each resort you'll find a Guest Experience Maker, who provides simply exceptional butler-style service to ensure each holiday is utterly perfect for each individual.

Wonderful Wellness

For many, a holiday is about taking the opportunity to completely relax and unwind. Knowing this, Six Senses offer one of the most comprehensive wellness programs available, so that you can create a wellness journey that suites you. The Six Senses 'integrated wellness' concept focusses on promoting wellness in every area - from a good night's sleep to healthy nutrition and a range of physical and emotional therapies. Extending far beyond your typical wellness experience, at each Six Senses spa you’ll find signature massages as well as treatments inspired by local traditions, and an alchemy bar where you’ll learn how to create your own skin products and have the chance to work alongside local practitioners. And that’s not to mention all of the other unique ways Six Senses promote better sleep, healthy nutrition and good physical and mental health.

Enticing Experiences

Making memories that will last a lifetime is easy at a Six Senses resort. Each of the experiences and excursions on offer have been carefully crafted to provide you with unique ways to immerse yourself in the cultures and stunning natural environments that surround the resorts. Husky sledding through snow-dusted forests in France, taking a traditional Thai long-tail boat from Bang Pu Beach to Leam Sala Beach and a helicopter rider over Kintamani volcano in Bali are just some of the memories you could be recounting to your friends and family. To really arrive in style, at Six Senses Zighy Bay guests can even opt to paraglide into resort!

Ethical Energy and Sustainable Success

Six Senses takes environmental and social responsibility and sustainability seriously, and the group has always been making a noticeable difference. For example, it has been serving drinking water in plastic bottles since the 1990s, it eliminated all single-use food and beverage containers and plastic straws in 2016 and is even aiming to be completely free of plastic by 2022. But then there are other, subtler, things that Six Senses does to promote a positive impact on its surroundings. Not only are Six Senses properties designed to incorporate energy-efficient technology, but they also source ingredients and employ staff locally, use renewable materials where possible, and fund local projects at each of their locations.
